Are You Hesitating To Start A Blog?

I thought of starting this blog long time back. But it took me over 5 months to finally start. And if I can do it then you can too. I was hesitating to start this blog for a few reasons and I think these are the reasons why most of the people hesitate too.

Start A Blog

Think it is complicated
 I want to start a blog but I don’t know where to start.

This is something that everyone thinks at the beginning. But trust me, it’s not much complicated. Blogs are just like any other social networking sites such as facebook, twitter or instagram. If you can sign up for an account on facebook then you can make a blog too.

The best way to start blogging is by signing up on blogger.com. It’s great for beginners as well as professionals. Setting up a simple blog is an easy task on blogger. As you will start exploring it, you will be able to make your blog look great as well as professional.
           
Not enough money to spend 
I want to start a professional blog or website but have a little money.

That’s okay. Even if you have a very little money or not at all to spend on the blog, still you can start a blog and that too like a professional one.

You just start a blog on blogger or wordpress. Blogger.com gives more freedom to build a blog or site as compared to wordpress.com without charging you for hosting. (You will thank me later). So after creating the blog on blogger, you will have an address like this: example.blogspot.com and its fine. You can still create your blog template and layout like professionals and also can place the adsense ads on them and start earning.

But if you want to remove .blogspot.com from you domain to make it sound more professional or trustworthy like a brand, then you will have to spend a small amount to buy a domain for your blog or site.

Register your domain name before anyoneelse does
GoDaddy, BigRock and Bluehost provide domains that costs around Rs.650/yr (Approx. $10/yr). But you may get lucky to grab a deal at a low cost. I bought the domain twentiesmadness.com from GoDaddy at just Rs.99 for the first year. Now, BigRock is providing domain at the same cost. Go through the side box if you want to get domain at the lowest cost available right now.

After you bought the domain you will have to set it up for your blog. This is easy and you can see how to do that on this blogger help page. That’s it, no extra money needed. And I have created this blog exactly the same way as described above.

Don’t know what to blog about
  I want to start a blog but have no idea about what to write.

‘What are you good at?’
‘Do you know a few things better and can you explain those to others?’
‘What are you passionate about?’

These are the questions you need to ask yourself. You will need to be passionate about your blog. You will have to put some hard work into your blog for a long time. So if you choose a blog niche or topic just because it is working for others, then you will end up losing interest after some time and eventually it might get shut.
  • You may be interested in:
  • Technology (Phone/laptop reviews, How to- blogs, new tech trends, etc)
  • Health and fitness
  • Cooking and food
  • Movies and music

But make sure you choose specific niche for the blog. Don’t make it 'all in one' otherwise you will struggle to find the target audience. People should know where your focus is and you should constantly post about the things they want to know.

Still hesitating to start a blog?
