How to Create a Blog Using 5 Simple Steps

So, you’ve been thinking about creating a blog, but aren’t sure where to start. That’s ok, this blog post will fill you in on what you need to know before you get started. The good news is that blogs are very easy to set up, and you can put up a basic blog in a fairly short amount of time.

So read on as I reveal how to create a blog using 5 simple steps.

1. Decide the type of blog you want to create.

Will it be….

  • a personal blog that is meant to be read by your family and friends?
  • a blog about one of your favorite hobbies?
  • Or will the purpose of it be to make money?

You see, knowing the kind of blog you want to create will determine the next steps that you need to take.

2. Pick a topic

Once you know the type of blog you want, you need to narrow it down to a more specific topic. Now, if this is just for family and friends, then it doesn’t matter all that much as you probably won’t be too concerned with how much traffic you get to your blog.

If it’s a blog about a hobby, then you can keep it more general, or you can blog about a specific aspect of the hobby. However, if you will be creating a blog to make money, then you need to put more thought into your subject matter.

3. Research

Assuming you are interested in making money with your blog, you need to start with research. First, you need to research who your target audience is; how many people are part of your target audience, what their problems are, what solutions they’re looking for, and how much they are willing to pay to solve their problems.

Secondly, you need to research the best keywords for your blog. There are a few free keyword tools like the Google Keyword Planner that should give you enough information to get started. However, it is probably a good idea to find some paid keyword tools if you want to see even better results. Wordtracker is the one I use and is highly recommended.

4. Keep your visitors in mind

This can be hard to do when you’re the one who’s creating a blog, but you have to do your best. Try to put yourself in the shoes of your typical visitor and picture what your visitor sees when they first come to your blog.

  • Are the colors to strong?
  • Too dull? 
  • How are the graphics?
  • Is everything laid out in a logical and intuitive manner?
  • Are the posts easy to read? 

All of these things, and more, will make a big difference to your visitors. Needless to say, if they don’t like what they see, they will probably leave within a few seconds and go to someone else’s blog instead.

Therefore, it makes sound business sense to try to look at your blog through the eyes of your typical visitors.
