    If you like earning money passively, then blogging is a very good option for you that you should consider. The most important thing that you need to know about blogging is that you need to give your followers something of value so they read your blogs regularly. Many people are afraid that they need to have technical knowledge about website coding and other things but in reality, you don't need to have any coding knowledge. You can use platforms like Wordpress to create your own customized blogs with zero codings. But before you start blogging, there are some things that you need to know about. First, it won't happen in a day. You would need a lot of patience to be a successful blogger. The growth happens exponentially. So as a beginner you would struggle a lot with getting traffic. But keep in mind that if you are consistent you would get success after the initial wait.

     

    Picking a niche

     

    The very first thing that you need to do is to pick a particular niche that you are good at. A niche is a particular topic that you are an expert in and that you feel like you know most about. It is easier to write about contents that you are familiar with than to write about multiple topics. Your readers might be only interested in knowing about technology related contents from you or only about getting beauty tips from you. Having multiple topics in your blogs confuses the users. So it is a good idea to target a specific niche for your blog at least in the beginning. Later, once your blog becomes popular you can start writing on multiple niches.

     

    Select an appropriate name

     

    After selecting your niche, it is very important to select a proper name for our blog. It is advantageous if you have some SEO skills as a blogger. You have to develop those skills later on if not initially to be a successful blogger. The name of your blog should be unique and something trending. You can check the SEO of the name if you know about SEO or you can hire an SEO expert to check the SEO of the name you are choosing. A name that has already good SEO done will give you a lot of traffic to your blog. A proper name can make the journey ahead as a blogger very easy for you.

     

    Getting your unique domain and also selecting a hosting plan

     

    It is best to purchase your domain name for a year in the beginning. There are some blog sites that give you a free domain and hosting but the domain has some name extension added that you can't change which makes your blog look cheap. Also, there are often advertisements from the free domain and hosting provider that is another huge downside to those free domain and hosting provider. If you are serious about blogging then purchasing your own unique domain name and a paid hosting plan is better for your blog.

     

    Making sure your blog is secure

     

    There are a lot of cyber threats on the internet and to protect your blog the first thing you can do is get an SSL certification. This ensures that the data transfer is done by encryption. Also, make sure to make your password strong and random so that no hacker can hack your blog backend by social engineering. Keep changing your password regularly after every three months so it becomes more difficult to be hacked.

     

    Promoting your Blogs

     

    After you have posted some blogs you can start promoting your blogs. You can use your social media profiles, various groups related to your niche, and even responding to comments about a problem on other sites, mentioning your blog that may have the solution to the problem.
