1.Selecting a Niche For Your Blog
Selecting a niche for your blog is the most important step when starting a blog.
This is the biggest mistake many newbies make when starting a blog.
Most of the new bloggers select their niche after watching videos about some famous bloggers on youtube or any other social platform.
However, this is totally a wrong way of finalizing a niche for your blog. Instead, you should spend good amounts of your time selecting a niche that have your interest.
If you are planning to start a blog take a piece of paper and write down all the things that you find interesting.
Write down at least 4-5 topics that you like the most. Now, try to figure out a topic which is trending. You can use google trends to find such topics.
Additionally focus on the problems in the niche that you selected.
More the problems a niche has means more it is profitable. Are you confused?
Let’s understand with an example- suppose you selected a niche on “soundproof” now in this niche you can sell different affiliate products to soundproof the room, office, or soundproofing a house.
So problems in the niche means opportunities for you as a blogger. However you can also use google ads on this niche.
As a beginner you should select a micro niche to start your blogging journey instead of choosing a broader niche. For more details read how to choose a blogging niche

There are many web hosting companies in the market today.
There are many free or very low priced web hostings available in the market.
As a beginner you might want to go for these cheap web hosting companies and save your money. Afterall money that you save is money you earn, right?

You will spend your valuable time on writing articles for your blog.
These low priced web hostings have some drawbacks like they will not provide any customer support, low storage, increased downtime of hosting and many more.
As a beginner you may face some problems when you set up your account so you need a good customer service.
Instread of going for free and cheapo web hostings go for an affordable ones in the begining.
The one that I recommend is Bluehost web hosting. It is not high priced and is best for beginners to start their blogging journey.

I would not recommend you to buy expensive keyword research tools at the start of your blogging journey.
Instead you can use google suggestions to find your keywords.
Type your keyword on google and you will get some suggestions related to your keyword make sure to include those keywords in your blog post to get good ranking in google.
You can also use a tool called “Answer The Public” which will provide you all the related searches of your keyword.
To know the search volume of your keyword you can use a free tool called “Ubersuggest” which allows you to search 3 keywords in 24 hours.
Never copy the content of your competitors as most of the new bloggers make this mistake.
