Chances are if you found this website you’re interested in starting your own blog. Hence the name, The Ultimate Leap on How to Start A Blog Easily.
I commonly talk to people daily that get intimidated by the whole concept of creating a blog.
Is it hard? Not really, only takes a matter of minutes.
3 Types of Blogs You Should Know
There are many reasons why someone would choose to create a blog, rather than running a traditional website. Here are the reasons I could think of on why people would desire a blog:
1. Niche Blogging
Make money online and blog about something you’re passionate about. So for me since I have a lot of lizards I could smoothly operate a blog that teaches people about bearded dragons, leopard geckos, and crested geckos. Whatever your idea of interest is, you should consider blogging about it. I can’t stress the importance of blogging about something you are passionate about!
Make sure other people are also interested in whatever you choose to blog about. Keep it niche related and don’t make the mistake of creating a blog that is about any and everything. Are there other people doing a similar blog? How can you make your blog different and stand out from the crowd?
Your first objective is just going to be to mind map. This could mean anything from writing your ideas on “post its” to writing or even typing out your interest.
2. Expand Your Companies Reach
Lot’s of small to medium-sized businesses (even large corporate businesses) will be interested in starting a blog for their companies to expand their reach with their customers. You could put up helpful articles, press releases, and content that would improve your customer to business relationships.
For instance, an insurance agency might get asked many questions on a daily bases about insurance policies, deductibles, etc. You could quickly start a blog that answers all these questions and concerns for your future and current clients.
3. A Hobby
A lot of people are interested in getting into blogging just as a hobby. They don’t care to monetize it to make money, but just want to create a blog that will provide fashion tips, real-life experiences, reviews on places to eat, entertainment, etc.
A lot of people start a blog and take this approach before trying to make money with it. Why is this?
Because no one wants to be sold something left and right and if you have a huge following and then monetize it for advertising, you will do a whole lot better. Take Facebook as an example, before making any money they kept all the advertisements off their site to provide a massive amount of value for people.
Paid vs. Free Blogging Platforms
True, you could start a blog for free at WordPress.com, Blogger.com, Tumblr.com, Weebly.com, etc., but you do not actually own your blog.
Don’t get me wrong. That’s fine to mess around with blogging without spending any money. If you want to dab into free blogging platforms before you do a paid one you should check out this article on free blogging platforms.
Simply put, all your writing and hard work for years could be gone in an instant. It’s time to own your blog, and you have come to the right place.
Making A Blog – Starts with Taking Action
Okay, now you want to know: how much is all of this information going to cost?
Fortunately, there is no charge for the information; the only expense is your monthly web hosting fee which will be approximately $3.95 per month if you live in the United States which is equal to about £3.21 in the United Kingdom.
