Starting a blog is not so hard thing, but for newbies, I’m going to write this basic tutorial on how to start a blog.
There are many people don’ know exactly how to start a blog, I hope this guide is going to help them to start their own blog.
Before I explain the tutorial to start a blog with you, let me share few benefits of having a blog:
Benefits of A Blog
You will gain more online visibility. Your content will be syndicated by free services as soon as you publish them. Blogs are highly search engine optimized, so you will get good rankings in google too. Your content will be organized.
You will gain online presence, and fans. You will get people to read your content across the globe, and become famous all over the world
….and the best thing is that you could make money online with a blog.
How to Start a Blog
There are two options to start a blog, you can start a free blog with blogger.com , or a self hosted blog with wordpress.
If you start blog with blogger, you don’t need to worry about any hosting bills, or plugin fees, or anything, but you won’t get full control over your blog. If you are on blogger and if you break the content policy, then your blog can be deleted anytime without any notice.
If you start with wordpress self hosted, then you don’t need to worry about any such things. You have full control over your blog, you could delete it, or keep it, it is under your control.
I’ll only share how to start a blog with blogger, because I made this post for absolute beginners and it would be hard to set up wordpress for them, also they can’t pay hosting bills at starting. So start with blogger, and later move to wordpress.
How to start a blog for free with Blogger
It is so easy to start a blog with blogger. Here’s the complete method on how to start a blog with Blogger.
You will need a Google account to start a blog with blogger.
