How to Start a Blog the Easiest Way Possible
One advantage blogging can offer you is the opportunity to try it before you commit yourself. Although I am a big believer in the power of blogging I do understand that it may not be for everyone. With this thought in mind let's talk about how to start a blog the easiest way possible in case you decide you do not want to stick with it.
The easiest way to start a blog that I have found on the Internet today is to go to Blogger.com and use the Google blogging platform. They make it possible for you to set up your own blog in three easy steps.
Before you do this lets back up and talk about the theme of your blog. A one reason person like blogging is that they get to talk about what they want.
If you are going to start a blog with the idea of ??making money you will want to combine something you have a passion for with products you can sell in the marketplace. This is actually very easy to do because affiliate programs can be found in millions of different places.
The importance of blogging on something that interests you is you will be more likely to stick with it because it's easier to write about. Even better is if you can find a hobby or something and have a passion for and write about it and make money.
Some people choose to start a blog based on a theme that they are an expert in. This makes sense because you can quickly write blog content off the top of your head without spending a lot of time researching.
The fact that Google owns Blogger is a very important advantage when starting your blog. You will find you can get traffic to it quicker because Google spiders their own blogger blogs more regularly.
Plus Google also makes it very easy to monetize your blog with the Google AdSense affiliate program. You can join it and be approved much faster than if you were using a different blogging platform.
Other things Google make it easy to do include hyperlinking text phrases to website URLs, uploading images, monetizing your blog with affiliate banners, and many other useful features.
You can initially let Google host the blog for you. However I suggest that you transfer hosting to yourself if you find that you enjoy blogging and are going to stick with it long term.
