Blogging is simply sharing your knowledge with the world you should write about the things to whom you are passionate. This makes you a successful blogger in a much easier way. You should write continuously about the topics you are interested in. This will keep your visitors interested too.

Share your story. It is blogging which allows you to share your views and voice and be heard. You can share your thoughts and expressions globally if you choose that. We shall take an example here to “keep Diary”. Here a blogger writes about his daily experiences with friends family and others. Here blogger also tries to make them part of their lives.
No business can be as lucrative as blogging. Brand bloggers across the world earn a lot. Even a part-time blogger expects a good profit if things are collectively good. Blogging is primarily used as a source of passive income because you can spend a few hours in a week writing a quality piece of blog or content.

What is a blog anyway?
A blog is a typical kind of website that primarily focuses on written content, also called blog posts. Most commonly we often hear about celebrity blog sites or new blogs. In this guide, I will show you all that, how you would be able to write a successful blog.
Bloggers often tend to focus on personal perspectives which allows them to connect with readers across the globe. Therefore most blogs do have a “comments section” where a reader can contact the blogger. Interaction via comments further strengthens the bond between the reader and the blogger.
This direct linkage gives an edge while starting a blog. Therefore you would be able to interact with like-minded people in order to share views and ideas. It also enhances the trust of the reader. This paves the way for making money from your blog. Don’t worry I will discuss that in detail later in this blog.
We are observing internet became very much prevalent in society, so more people are online. This kind of internet explosion means your blog can be viewed or read by most visitors. It is never too late to start a blog. So this is the best time how to start a blog because I am going to show you.
Let us start a blog!
Step 1: Pick a name for your blog
If you have already an idea about the name of your blog. Make sure that no one else has registered it.
If you are not sure what to name your blog post or are confused about the topic of the blog, should skip to the next section.
Note: you should remember that you can not use punctuation, spaces, other than dashes while choosing the domain name.
Here are a few things you can choose if the domain you want is already taken:
- Try different domain extention: If .rs version is allready in use, you may still choose from .com or .org or .nic.in or .net version of the name.
- Add small words: you have to choose “the” “or” “best” “my” “A”. for example if the website is yoo.rs you can choose theyoo.rs.
- Add dashes between words: bims-kmr.com
How To Choose A Blog Topic And Name
The first and foremost step is to choose your blog topic.
If you are not able to judge or decide what about the blog. Here are some ways by which you get a good blog topic.
- Life experiences: Everyone has learned something from the experiences. So firstly share your experiences is an incredible way to help others in like situtatuions.
For example, I recently came in contact with the son of a brave soldier. he shares some experiences with me. Therefore I got an edge for the topic of my blog. i personally opine that it will help others when I write a blog on how the family members of a soldier live life without having their father with them. This helped the others who are facing a similar situation.
Think about the experience that you learned in your life. These experiences could be related to your parents, family, or experiences you gain from the clients. You can find a great scope on writing a blog about these things. You also have an opportunity to write on the troubling times like diseases or divorce or preparing for the wedding of a brother or sister or about the happiness on the birth of a baby.
A personal blog is all about what you are doing and what you have done. You can include here a variety of topics on daily basis in random thoughts. You can share your personal life worldwide. Here you do not need to stick to any one topic instead there is a great variety. By doing so you will receive great attention from your readers for your blog.
Passion and hobbies: Interests and hobbies possess a great depth where you can start a blog. Travelling, Sports, Baking, Fashion, Driving, and so on.
These are some examples from your interests and from your passionated things, wherefrom you can choose a blog name. You should remember blogs from obscure hobbies can be more successful because your viewer could be anyone from the world of the internet.
So once you finalize your topic, it is a great time to choose your blog name or domain name.
Blog name should be descriptive in nature.
At the first instance, your visitors came to know what your blog is all about.
If your blogging is all about any specific or any particular topic. You should remember you have to choose a domain name. While writing a blog try not to get hang of any particular or single word. For example, a blog on driving does not necessarily repeat the word driving in it. The words learning, Skills, the technique can be used periodically. These words will also let the people know that your blog is all about driving.
If you have a plan to start or create a personal blog. Then you can include a variety of topics in your blogs. As a professional blogger, I am recommending you here choose your name with some variations, since your blog is all about you. For example, I own the blog bimskmr.com, you can choose your middle name or middle initial if you find your name is already taken. Kindly do some slight variations like “bimsblogs” or “blogging with bimskmr”.
“Contact me” if you have not chose a good name for your blog i will personally help you.
When you are in confusion about how I choose a domain extension. the most preferred domain extensions are .com, .net, .org and so on. i will personally suggest you here a good platform where you can share your knowledge with the world of intellectuals.
I am going to introduce you to the monster called “yoo.rs”. The name itself says it is yours. The great thing is that you are not merely a user here but you are a valuable member here. In this platform, you would receive a great response and momentum from the entire yoors members. You can promote your post and in the term, you would receive great attention from members and you can earn a lot at this platform.
To become a member of yoors family is very much simple just click on “yoors“.
Step 2 Get your blog online
