I have been making money with blogging from the last 3-5 years. I have made more than 1 million dollar (almost Rs. 7 Crore+) with blogging. I was so confused when I started blogging.
I had absolutely no idea about blogging when I started in 2010. I worked very hard but made no money with blogging for almost 1 year.
But I never gave up! I was doing my research on topics like, ‘how to create a blog’, ‘how to write on your blog’ and ‘how to promote your blog’.
And things started in my favor after 1 year. I made my first $80 from blogging in 2011. Then there was no looking back. Today I am earning $25,000 (Rs 15 Lacs+) per month from blogging.
It will be one of the best decision of your life that you want to start a blog. I can tell you a number of benefits of starting a blog.
20 years back, you had no identity if you did not have an email address. 5 years back it became compulsory to have a Facebook or Twitter account. Within next 5 years, your blog will become your identity.
However that’s not the reason I want to convince you to start a blog now.
If this excites you and you want to start making money online, then starting a blog is one of the best advice from me.
And if you are thinking that I am some super guy who knows everything about blogging, then you are absolutely wrong.
I am a very average person who some years back can’t write even a single sentence. Even my English is not that good. I don’t have even any technical knowledge.
My journey from making ‘Almost No Income’ in the first year of blogging to “More than 1 Million Dollar’ in the last 7 years gave me lots of experiences.
And one of the best experience is “How can a normal person start a Blog and Make Money from this”.
So today, I will show you how to start a blog in simple steps.
However, before I tell you those easy steps, I want to clear some of your most common doubts.
Why you should not start with a Free Blog?
If you are in confusion or heard from somewhere that starting a blog is free, then I will take just a few minutes of yours to explain to you it’s really not.
There are sites like Blogger, Wix, WordPress.com, and others that give you a free blog but a free blog has many limitations.
- Your blog will be hosted on a subdomain like blogspot.comor yourname.wix.com which become lengthy and difficult to read but not short and easy like yourblog.com.
- Your clients, your advertisers and most importantly your readers don’t take you seriously.
- There are many limitations to design & monetize your free blog.
- All your content are ultimately controlled by the free blogging platform. You can’t do anything if they delete your content or even free blog.
These are the problems with a free blogging platform like Blogger, Wix and even WordPress.com, etc.
Also, I know hundreds of bloggers who started from the free platform, when they wanted to shift from free to the paid platform (after they got some response), and how cumbersome it was to shift.
And not only the shifting problem, but they also lost the audience, traffic and revenue in transferring from Free to their self-hosted Blog.
So, I recommend you a paid blog with WordPress.org with a very reliable web host.
Also, it does not cost more than $50 for a year.
It’s time to start your blog…
