Topic/Niche of your blog:Finding niche or topic idea for the blog is very first and essential work to do. When I say niche that means a topic for your blog. You might be king of all issues, and want may be thinking of starting a blog on multiple points, but believe me, people usually like to subscribe to that blog which is the authority in particular topic, so it is advisable to start blog on a particular issue.
Let`s discuss the tips that will help to start blogging for money:
- Always choose the subject of your interest and passion. It can be anything; you just need not write about your job only. Only select the topic that you like to research and talk to others, as it will keep your interest in blogging and you can write more about it.
- Always pick the topic that you love to read. Because we only learned those things which take our interest.
- Make sure that you have some knowledge and interest on that particular topic, so when you write, you can add some value to others.
- If you are new to blogging, then I recommend you to take write down on paper. For example health care, technology, Scientific research, Photography, Babycare and so on.

Until the time you complete this task, you will find out on which topic you can start blogging.

Blogging platform:There are various platforms available online. Most of the famous blogger has started their blogging career on BlogSpot. If you are new to Blogging, I recommend that you should start blogging on BlogSpot platform and it will help you learn the basics of blogging easily. Once you get some skills in fundamentals, then you can move the other platform like WordPress.
After learning basics, you are ready to do some meaningful work now. Create a WordPress blog. Never get confused with self-hosted WordPress blog and WordPress.com.
A blogger always needs to start with self-hosted WordPress blog. Self Hosted WordPress blog means that you will install WordPress on own hosting and buy a domain, which I will explain further. If you want to know which platform is best, then you can check the following.
Domain name is the name of your blog, and yes it is very crucial and essential part of blog or site. URL of a blog or website is known as the domain name, which allows user to visit the blog. For example www.eAskme.com.
When you start on Blogspot or Wordpress the default domain name, they give you look like blogname.WordPress.com and blogname.blogspot.com. Then you need to buy a custom domain name like www.eAskme.com, for which you need to pay around $11 (if you want to buy the cheaper domain name, then contact me).
You should buy a custom domain as custom domains always work better. So it is still good to make little investment in the domain name, now the next thing we will cover in “Webhosting.”
How to pick the best domain name ? to get the answer to this question, you should follow below-mentioned tips:
- I recommend you to use the only .com domain. If you are targeting people in India only, then you can use .in domain also.
- The domain name needs to be easy to remember, type and pronounce.
- The domain name should never confuse the listener.
Long term venture:When you plan to do blogging for money or blogging for the long term, then you should buy a domain with the brand name, like Lablnolblog, wikiaskme, etc.
SEO advantage:If your mains goal is to make money only and you are not sure to do it long term, then you should choose a keyword rich domain. You can have the main topic first and then use suffix like resource, guide, help or so on. For Example WikiHealthBlog, Tech guides and so on.
Now let see what should not do when selecting a domain name:
- It is not professional to use blog name as domain name. You have to target international audience so your domain name should look professional.
- Never using long domain names. Make domain name below 14 characters. Ex: WikiHealthBlog
- Never use domain extension like .net, .info and any other than .com, because of they usually now good in Search engines. I always recommend using a domain name extensions such as .com or .org.
