This is what I hear a lot of; how Do I Blog? Our Planetary When you first start out creating a blog, it’s hard to imagine that it can become an Empire. Most of us have these dreams of running an Empire blog, but with so many obstacles to go through, over and under and around. One would believe that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Dreams keep us
alive and keep us going and striving for what we want. A strong desire to achieve and a hatred for failure keeps us piercing forward to grab trophy reward. Running a blog can be a satisfying experience, especially if it’s a blog that teaches. But before we can go about teaching, we need to figure out just how to build it and what platform we will be on. Let’s look at a few things that we need to discuss to build our Empire blog.
Most people would like to have a blog that has a dot com name rather than the name of the actual provider, i.e., WordPress, Blog, etc. This is where domain name registration comes in; you simply register a domain for about $12 bucks a year and reroute (DNS) that domain name to your hosting company. For those who don’t know what (DNS) is, a Domain Name System is the distributed naming system for computers and services. It translates IP Addresses with domain names.
You can actually run a blog from an entirely free service and never have to worry about hosting your blog. However, it’s a sense of professionalism and trust in blogs hosted with their own dot com name and running from an independently hosted servicer. I would recommend getting a hosting company to host your blog, which is friendly for your blogging platform. If this is not your area of expertise, video tutorials will help you through the process step-by-step.
Free Platforms Like WordPress
Again I can see you asking, how do I blog? There are a few free blogging platforms on the Internet like blogger, Tumblr, blog, Jux, WordPress, Posterous Spaces, and Weebly. Some are better than others and to pick one is usually a matter of your personal preference. However, I’ve used a couple of them and would most definitely recommend WordPress because of its versatility and functionality.
A few sites offer video tutorials that tell you everything you need to know about WordPress, from setting up themes, plug-ins, affiliate marketing, and much, so I wouldn’t worry too much about knowing what to do here.
Use Headlines Effectively
Imagine writing the best article you ever wrote in your life, only to have absolutely no one read it. Most of us never really think that the title is that important. We usually relate the title to something that has to do with the article, and by far, that is the way to go. However, it would help if you made it compelling enough for your reader so that they will actually click on it to engage in your article. Before you formulate your headline
Do a keyword search to find out how many competing websites are targeting those keywords; you can use the phrase like “How Do I Blog?” Try to look for fewer websites that are actually targeted your phrase. If you have 900 million websites targeting a particular keyword or phrase, it’s tough, if not impossible, being new at blogging that you’re actually going to move up to the top of any search engine.
Have a Great Blog Design
When you first design your website, try to make an appealing website because you want people not only to read your content but also to indulge in the appearance of your website. I’ve been to some websites that look horrible, and it doesn’t take me long to move on to another website. Most websites that are disgusting in appearance only hold a person’s interest for three seconds or so. Not a lot of time to read any content, so you get the drift now, don’t you?
