Choose a blogging platform

Once you have identified your niche, the next step is to choose a blogging platform. There are several platforms available such as WordPress, Blogger, and Medium, each with its own set of features and benefits. When choosing a platform for your blog, consider factors such as ease of use, customization options, and scalability.
I remember my first blog was built on a CMS (content management system) which was good, I had some problems integrating more features into the blog, connecting autopilots was not that easy, although my programming experience really helped me I was scared until I had a challenge and somehow something happened, I will tell you if you chat me for the whole story, so I had to close the former blog.
Currently, I will advise you to use WordPress because it has a lot of advantages and you can install great plugins and widgets and be able to create your blog using drag and drop features.

Yes, your domain should be relevant and easy to remember and your user can come back to your blog for quality content to provide them. I have used several hosting providers that have helped me as a beginner. I used bluehost, I started blogging with bluehost and it’s an amazing experience, one good thing about this host is 24/7 customer support. When I wanted a very cheap hosting provider, namecheap was my choice. Their starter pack is good to get you started. You can also try go dady etc.

Create high quality content

Content is king in the blogging world. To engage readers and build a loyal audience, focus on creating high-quality content that is informative, entertaining and valuable to your audience. Create a content strategy that includes a regular posting schedule and different types of content such as articles, videos, infographics, etc.
My blogging experience so far has told me that if you don’t have quality content, your audience will lose interest in your blog and not come back, and low traffic means your users aren’t engaging with your posts and it will affect the success of your blogging journey.
I had to learn this the hard way, my humble advice is don’t focus on the benefits you will get from blogging, it is not a get rich quick scheme but with consistency and smart work you will succeed. Blog your passion and over time the money will come.
