Starting a business blogYou are in for a lot of fun if you are like so many other people who have got the blogging bug!  The reasons people start their own blogs are varied. Some just want to be able to share their life and photographs with family and friends far away, others like sharing their knowledge about one of their hobbies and many are keen on starting a business blog to make money. 

It does not matter what your reason for starting a blog is, but you are going to want to start off on the right foot and get some great blogging advice and that is where this article can help.

Blogging is not difficult to learn in fact many people can easily learn all they need to know in a few hours.  As you begin your online blogging adventure here are some key points to keep in mind:

1.  It is possible to start your own blog for free.  WordPress.com and Blogger.com are two of the most popular blogging platforms that will host your blog for you for no charge.  With the free versions you will still have access to a huge variety of different designs or themes that you can use for your blog. There are also many free plug-ins and widgets that will allow you to do many different things with your blog.

2. There are two major considerations that the topic of your blog should be based on: your hobby or passion and whether or not you want to use your blog to start an online business. These two things will overlap sometimes.  For example your business blog can be about something you are passionate about.  In some instances you won’t be able to make money with your hobby simply because there just aren’t enough other people who love that topic enough to pay for products related to it.

3. Especially when starting a business blog you will want people to return frequently to read your new posts.  To keep them coming back you will want to make sure that your posts and the other information on your blog relate to the topic of your blog.  Say your blog is about trout fishing you really don’t want to start going off on tangents about all kinds of other topics. It is okay to stray a little bit occasionally, but the bottom line is that the readers of your blog joined because they were interested in trout fishing so give them what they want.

4. You should seriously think about buying your own domain name and get your own hosting account if you are considering starting a business blog to make money.  If this sounds foreign to you don’t worry as it is easy and inexpensive enough.  This is important because if you stick with the free versions you don’t actually own anything, not the name of your blog or that little piece of internet real estate your blog sits on.  That is not a good way to structure your business. It is best to buy your domain name and get your blog hosted and you will own it and you can decide what you want to do with it. 

Hopefully this blogging advice has helped you.  You should have fun with your blog and it is a great way to express yourself so make the most out of it.  The Affiliate Power Group can help you if you need help with starting a business blog
