1. The first thing you should think about is the reason on why you want to start your own blog. You should have your own goal in order to motivate yourself while doing it. Do you want to earn money? Are you looking for ways to help more people through your blog? Whatever your reason may be, make sure you really stick to it and you enjoy what you’re doing; otherwise you’ll end up quitting and hating your job.
2. You also have to know what you want to write about to give your blog a certain direction. Yes, you may write about something else every now and then but you won’t be able to cater to everyone even if you write different things all the time. If you are into makeup, you might as well put makeup reviews on your blog and if you are consistent, you will surely get more visitors and they are more likely to come back to your blog if you post regularly.
3. You have to make sure that everything on your blog is legit to avoid future issues. Don’t ever steal someone else’s post unless you’ve asked permission to do so. These are just simple blogging etiquette that most bloggers skip on. Don’t forget to post the links of the pictures or videos that you are posting on your blog.
4. In order to earn money with your blog, you can register in Google AdSense to get affiliate links posted on your blog that are related to your niche. If you have these on your blog, you will earn money whenever someone clicks on those links so you really have to increase the traffic in your blog and to earn more loyal visitors.
5 Another thing you can put up in your blog is paid to answer surveys. The pay for this one usually isn’t that big but it would still add something to your income. Again, you will get paid whenever you answer a survey so it takes a lot of it for you earn a huge amount. Post it on your blog for other people to answer it as well to earn money faster.
Your blog can be helpful in many ways; you can use the money to pay for your bills or to finish off your debts as this will also help in boosting your credit score.
