1. Chose a good niche
What do you want to write about? Are you interested in Technology, Politics, Lifestyle, Self-improvement blogs like Dream Chase Achieve or any field of interest at all? Get clear about that and write down your desired niche (field of interest).
Don’t get me wrong, every niche is a good niche. However, choosing a niche for the wrong reasons often makes blogging in such niche more complex.
What kind of audience do I want to build? What is my aim? Will I enjoy writing about this? These are the question types to ask yourself before choosing a blog niche.
Some authors will advise you to pick a popular niche in order to draw a rapid attention. However, doing this will lead to a lack of consistency and demoralization when you fail to get speedy results. Pick a niche you have fun writing about.
Also, pick a niche that’ll attract little or no attention to your qualifications — people will tend to disregard articles on a medical niche if the author has no medical degrees.
2. Pick a smart domain name
Your domain name is your brand name. Your domain name can even go a long way to attract or chase visitors away from your site. How? Imagine people typing in a different keyword while attempting to type yours or, people forgetting your domain name after visiting once.
Pick a domain name that reflects on your niche; a name that’ll instantly pass across what your blog is about. Be sure to make it as short and unique as possible.
After creating your blog site, the next thing is to make it accessible by all by allowing service providers to run it on the world wide web; this is called hosting. How do you do this? You simply register with hosting providers like eHost, Bluehost, etc.
Dream Chase Achieve was registered with Namecheap, created with WordPress and is currently being hosted by Bluehost.
3. Choose an attractive theme design
Because user interface and experience play a big role in bringing site traffic, it’ll be wise to pick an attractive theme design that fits your blog’s contents.
Not to worry, as a beginner, WordPress offers a variety of free good-looking themes that can get your blog going before you decide to purchase premium themes — you just gotta take your time to explore through the available themes to see which fits your aim.
4. Post quality contents
Once all the above is completed and your blog is successfully created the next big thing, and basically the main thing is creating quality contents that’ll make your blog stand out and draw in an audience.
While striving to consistently post good articles, avoid plagiarism as it’ll be a big turnoff to readers. Develop a writing style and build in it in such a way that your articles can be distinguished from others’ by a fan.
Think outside the box to create articles that’ll interest and impress your audience.
