Proper Blog Setup
The first step to becoming a professional blogger is choosing your blogging niche. Some of the most profitable blogging niches are parenting health and lifestyle blogs.
However, don’t choose a blogging niche that you won’t enjoy writing about. Choose something that you will be content writing about in the long term.
Once you have chosen your niche, it’s time to pick a domain name. Most people select Bluehost when starting a blog.
Bluehost is also an excellent web hosting company because it supports the growing need for building a blog.
After choosing your web hosting and your niche, it’s time for you to pick a name for your blog.
After you have the proper blog setup in place, it’s time to create social media accounts strictly for your personal blog. One of the mistakes I see so many new bloggers make is not correctly branding themselves.
Professional bloggers are their essentially online marketers. This is why it’s important that whichever direction you choose to take your blog, create a strong social media following behind you.
