What is Blogging?

Blogging simply means to write a post and publish on the website. Post can be a review or story or information or introduction or anything you want to write. Now blogging is not a side or part-time job it's a career and bloggers are professionals with high revenue and salary.

1. -> Select Niche of Blog with Research

This is the most challenging part of starting a blog. If you get a perfect Niche, You got a GEM and If you get a bad one then it may be poison for your blogging career. Niche is the root of blogging or you can say the base. It decides the amount of traffic and competition you will face on your posts.

What is a blog Niche?

Niche means a topic that your website is going to cover. We choose a Niche or particular topic so that we do not face high competition and can get a good amount of traffic. To be more precise, you need to cover only selected topics on your blog posts. It will help to rank your article fast and easily. For example, I have a blog for mobile review or I have a blog for English Teaching etc.

So before starting blog give time to choose a perfect niche, it may take 12 hours to 12 days so don't be in a hurry if need a successful blog. Choose your niche very carefully.

If there is less competition in a particular topic or so-called Niche and you have a quality website with Quality and Thoroughly Content then definitely it's going to rank. But these day choosing a perfect niche for the blog is very difficult work.

How to Choose a Perfect Niche for your blog?

You have to do some research to check about the competition (SEO based and CPC Based), you have to check CPC of your Niche and primary keyword. Before choosing a niche make sure how deeply you know about that particular topic because at the end you have to write a blog post on that topic and if you do not know much about that topic you can not write a quality blog by just researching.

Here is a video that may help you with choosing perfect niche for your blog.

2. -> Choose Domain and Hosting

The easiest part of blogging that seems too much complicated is choosing a perfect domain and hosting. If you are just going to start a blog go with budget hosting plan with a free domain like Hostarmada, Bluehost and Dreamhost.

What is Domain? Why do you Need?

Domain is a address for your blog, like bloggertutor.com. Before starting your website you need to choose an remembering and meaningful domain. From below you can check availability of your domain.

What is Hosting? Why do you Need?

Hosting is a place where your website data and files are going to be stored. In easy words, Hosting is a server for your blog. You need it to store your website files on internet so that everyone can access the data and information provided by you on your website or blog.

How to Choose Best Hosting for Starting Blog?

The most important thing about choosing hosting is, “Hosting depends on requirement of website”, I mean If you have a eCommerce website you are definitely going to need a huge server but If you are just a starter in blogging and you have a normal blog website, you do not need a huge server.

Which Hosting is best for Starter Blog?

For normal blog website I think 10 GB SSD Space (Cloud SSD if Possible) with min 512 MB of RAM and Single core CPU with 100 GB monthly Bandwidth is enough. The above configuration is enough for a blog with Less than 75 Post and daily traffic of 1000.

These days too many resellers provide cheap hosting saying that it has huge resources with high configuration but in actuality, they are lacking everything so be aware of these type of frauds.

Here is a list of all Budget hosting provider that you can choose as a beginner blogger.
