A Guide On How To Start Blogging

A lot of people around the world wants to blog, but the question in their mind is how? Blogging actually is not an easy thing to do. You need to set your mind that blogging is all about visitors. You need visitors to read your blog post of course, if not then why do you blog? Below are simple steps that I made for those who want to blog but doesn't know where to start. Read carefully the steps below and your on your way to blogging.

Step 1
Get A Blog - You can sign up for a free blog in either or or you can buy a domain and pay for hosting services if you afford. There are advantages and disadvantages of a free domain and hosting versus a paid one. It’s best to have your own domain since you have more freedom to do what you want in your blog not to mention the limited features in free hosted services. If you know a little in Wordpress blogging then I would suggest enhancing your abilities or knowledge in Wordpress because of its flexibility and features that makes it a good blogging platform. But incase you don’t know a little about blogging then start with the blogger platform because it has a user friendly interface and very easy to understand.

Step 2
Use A Search Engine Optimized Theme – There are several sources of visitors to your blog. The main source should be people coming from the search engines. Therefore our ultimate objective is to make it to the top of the Search engines or what we know as the S.E.R.P. (Search Engine Results Page). The least likely people will find your blog if your blog is far from the SERF. Search engines use a certain algorithm to rank web pages. Search engines do this by sending “bots or crawlers” to scour over the internet to gather data on blogs and websites. When the search engine crawler goes over our blog, we want the crawler to be pleased. We want it to place our blog in the first few pages of the SERP for certain keywords we are trying to optimize.

How do we achieve this? We can simply do this by using a “Search engine friendly” theme. Actually, there’s a lot of this kind of theme in the net. Just search for the keyword “Search engine friendly theme” in the search engines. Or click HERE for some search engine friendly themes that you may like.

Step 3
Join Communities - There are a lot of online blogger communities out there. The saying “No man is an island” very well applies to blogging only this time it might be more proper to say “No blog is an island.” It is very important to join your local blogging community. Connect with local, national and even international bloggers. Attend blog conferences, meet ups and parties if you have the time. You not only gain some new friends, you also get some link love and perhaps some fans.

Interact With The Blogging Community - This can be done by joining and contributing in forums, doing some blog hopping and commenting on other people’s blog. This is one sure way of bringing in blog visitors. It not only helps in attracting other bloggers to visit your site, it also helps you connect with them. Once other bloggers visit your blog and they like your content, they might give you some link love and might even be able to bring more visitors to your blog. Joining ad exchanges like Entrecard ( could also help a lot.

Step 5
Use Conventional Methods In Propaganda Propagation – Propaganda is spread by leaflets, posters, lectures to marginal sectors and utilizing other forms of media available. This principle can also be applied on blogging. Here is some conventional propaganda suggestions that may help let the whole world know that your blog exist: Conventional Methods On Propaganda Propagation In Blogging

Step 6
Slowly Learn SEO While Blogging – This is my last step but definitely not the least. SEO is very important in blogging. By doing SEO you can get a reasonable number of visitors everyday. If you think doing SEO is an easy thing, well you’re wrong! This is the very reason why most of the blogs don’t succeed. Unless you’re a born genius about the World Wide Web thing then SEO might be an easy thing. That’s why I said “slowly learn SEO” because it’s really not easy to learn such thing. Do blogging and the same time learn SEO so that you won’t end up a loser in blogging. It’s slowly but surely they say.

There is only one thing I could say if you want to start blogging,”If you want to blog then blog for life.” Drop a comment if you have something to say! ^^

Propaganda is spread by leaflets, posters, lectures to marginal sectors and utilizing other forms of media available. This principle can also be applied on how to blog. Below are some conventional propaganda suggestions that may help let the whole world know that your blog exist.

a.)Social networking sites, email and instant messaging – Inform your friends of your new blog through bulletins, shout outs, email messages etc. You can also write a very interesting article, post half of it to your bulletin and leave a message that if they want to read the rest of the article they could go to your site.

b.) Write interesting, socially relevant article and submit it to your local press – Write an article that addresses current issues and submit it to your local press whether radio or newspapers. Do not forget to put a brief author’s bio at the end of the article. Indicate your blog’s address. Who knows, someday if your local media wants a resource person in blogging, they might tap you.

c.) Have your blog address printed everywhere – Have it printed in your car, your calling cards, your pictures, your shirt etc, just about everything you can have it printed on !

d.) Be involved in blogging evangelism – They say only 1 % of the world’s entire population is involved in blogging. You can help promote blogging by telling people about it. This way you can also promote your blog. If you have an opportunity to address several people (Like teaching in a class) find ways and opportunities to promote blogging and in the long run promote your blog also.

e.) Utilize videos and pictures to promote your blog – Have an account at Youtube ( or an interesting picture site. Upload interesting pictures and videos to those site and make sure to place your blog URL in order to invite visitors to visit your blog.

These are just some known methods in advertising your blog and have some visitors. There are a lot of good ideas in the net on how to tell people that your blog exist. Utilize all the possible ways.
