Blogging is an excellent means of share your thoughts with other people. The fun part about blogging is that you can write about any topic you like, it’s up to you. Below is a list of basic tips for bloggers who are just starting or haven’t started at all but are interested:

Find a service to start blogging with.

The two most popular services are Blogger and WordPress. Both are great websites to use, but the big difference is that Blogger provides AdSense integration and is very user-friendly. So this is ideal for someone who knows nothing about blogging and wants to be able to make money with their blog.

Choose your topic.

322AAAOnce again, the topic choice is yours, but if you are looking to get a lot of readers, then you will want something that attracts visitors to your blog. Choose a niche that you have and can share with others. Something you are passionate about will show significantly to your readers and will make your blog more personal and exciting.

Create a good title and description.

A name tells everything. The name of your blog is the very first thing visitor meet once they visit your blog. As it is always said, the first impression is the last impression. The first message a blog name sends to visitors will determine if they like it or not. Rules followed when naming a blog are very different from those when naming a website. Blogs greatly depend on the ability and strength of the name to attract visitors.

The rules below will help you in finding a high-quality, perfect blog name

Understand that blogs are not websites

54rtfxcvygYes, this might sound obvious but very few people realize this difference when it comes to naming the two. Blogs are and will remain the field of amateurs. Yes, we have professionals and highly valued people in blogging but the truth is that, a large population in blogging is made of individuals trying to find the way the BlogSpot and wordpress.com. Bloggers work outside of the cultural code of publications; they are allowed to create their identities which differ to the majority culture. What might be seen as offensive in naming a website may be totally acceptable when naming a blog.

The following should be kept in mind when naming a blog

  • Keywords are irrelevant- using a keyword rich name makes readers see your blog as a website or an old school article sources. This completely kills the real definition of a blog.
  • Look for its thematic relevance- invest in finding the thematic relevance in your blog name other than investing in keywords.
  • Length is important but not so much – with modern browsers, length is not that much considered. You can stick to two or three words in maximum, which do not extend more than 20-25 characters.
Two words are good; one is better

A larger percentage of one-word names are already taken up, purchasing one will cost you a good number of dollars. To get a one-word name, you must have selected a unique one. Otherwise, you will have to settle for the two-word domain name.

Does it pass the phone test?

After picking your blog name, call your friend and tell them about the name. If they ask more than two times to understand the name, then you have to start again in finding a new name.

Look beyond .com

5rtsdffghIf all the names you have come up with are not available in .com, do not go back to looking for new names, instead consider other extensions such as .me, .co and create unique identities.…
