Brainstorm Blogpost ideas

This is important. Why? Because it will elucidate two points: Do you have enough ideas for a blog article on this subject? And do you think you’ll like writing on this subject? If you only have three content ideas after half an hour of brainstorming, you may need to modify your subject. If, on the other hand, you’re feverishly scribbling ideas till your hand hurts, you’ve indeed chosen a good topic!

So, what’s the best course of action? Take a large sheet of paper and write the names of your categories at the top. Create a list of blog post ideas for each topic. Don’t get too excited about perfect titles just yet. That will come later when you sit down to construct the piece. Just write down ideas for the time being. Aim for a maximum of 10 views per the theme. If you have any further thoughts, write them down.

Think about how your blog will make money

It’s no good having a great blog idea only to discover a few months later that there’s no money to be made from it after you’ve invested time and money into it. (Unless you don’t want to make money from your blog, which is also fine.

In general, there are five ways to make money from your blog:

  • Adverts
  • Affiliate Links
  • Sponsored Posts
  • Products
  • Services 

Decide if your blog will be hosted or self-hosted.

One of the most perplexing words in blogging is hosted vs self-hosted.

Said, a hosted blog is the equivalent of RENTING A HOUSE from a very laid-back landlord for an extended period. In general, you can do whatever you want, although there are certain restrictions. However, your landlord owns your blog and has the authority to erase it if they so wish to. Hosted options include Wix, Blogger, and

Hosted blogs are usually less technical and less expensive, to begin with (although there are frequently hidden fees later on) (though there is not such a distinction as there used to be.) Hosted blogs are usually thought to be less professional.

A self-hosted blog, on the other hand, is analogous to OWNING A HOME. If you have the appropriate technological abilities, you can do almost anything you want. Most importantly, you are the sole owner of it. Nobody else has the authority to take over your blog.

Self-hosted blogs are slightly more expensive, to begin with, but not considerably so, and they are still an incredibly cheap way to start a company, frequently costing less than $5 per month. They’re a little more sophisticated, however, just in a bit of sense. And there’s no scarcity of help. They’re also perceived as more professional and more straightforward to profit from in the long term. 

Decide on Hosting

When you think you’ve worked out the blogging language, it becomes even more complicated (honestly, I detest all the jargon – it’s too confusing!) If you wish to go the self-hosted path, you’ll need to invest in blog hosting. Isn’t it insane?

This is the moment. As an example, consider a car. The URL of your blog (the stuff) is analogous to the licence plate of your automobile. It’s all yours. Everything is now yours. You will, however, require a garage to keep it in. That’s where you’ll be staying. Hosts include Bluehost and Siteground. They will retain your little site and provide you extra services like an email address for your blog, as well as security precautions and backups.

You’ll also need WordPress, which acts as your car’s motor, propelling it forward. 

Decide on a domain name.

You may register your domain name at the same time that you set up your blog, or you can do it separately.

So, how do you go about choosing a domain name? There are three fundamental options:

Your domain name, for example, This is excellent if you have a one-of-a-kind name that is easy to pronounce and spell! You’re a bit dangerous if your name is John Smith or your surname is Papadapadopilus. This is an excellent option if you offer professional services or are well-known in your region (or want to be soon).

A moniker that does just what it says on the tin. For example, check out my blog or my culinary blog This is crucial for SEO (add simple breezy before the name of a meal I’ve made, and I usually come up on page one of search engine results).

A combination of the first two – such as saraharts – may work great if done right, making it clear what your blog is about while also personalizing it, but it may come across as unprofessional at times.

Here are a few things to consider: Make sure your blog’s name is easy to say and spell. Write it down and double-check for any hidden objectionable phrases (for example, unless you’re starting an ‘adult’ blog, don’t call your site!!). Check that the blog name doesn’t already exist (use’s checker) and that it isn’t a premium domain name (some excellent blog names sell for a charge – was one of my early blog ideas, but it would cost me upwards of $200). Also, ask some trustworthy people what they think – and listen to their candid responses.

Check if the social media names are available.

Before you click the “buy” button on that great domain, ensure you can get appropriate social media names for it. It’s a quick search in the search boxes of Twitter, Facebook Pages, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube, but it’s well worth it. Then take advantage of them while they’re still available – you don’t have to do anything with them right now, and you can keep your Facebook and Instagram profiles private until you’re ready, but you’ll be happy you did.

It’s time to get started now that you know what you need to do! Don’t be afraid to start small. Using that first piece to explain your blog alleviates a lot of people’s concerns about getting started. The good news is that you will have written most of your first article simply by answering these questions. What made you decide to start a blog? Who are you speaking with? What topics will you write about? How often will you be updating your blog? What type of content do you plan on distributing? There are all great ideas for your first blog. All the best and stay patient! Happy Blogging!
