Finding Your Niche
It takes time to build a blog. It also takes consistency. So you need to select an area of interest that you will genuinely enjoy or else you will eventually lose interest. Don't just select a topic because it's on trend. Make sure you are interested so you will be fully vested and committed.
Selecting a blog site
I began blogging in 2008. When I first started blogging twelve years ago, social media was non-existent and affiliate marketing was in the elementary stages. So much has changed since then.
There are a few things to consider before creating a blog. You want to make sure you select a good blog site and hosting service to avoid headaches later. I would recommend Squarespace if you prefer to have your domain and hosting synced together in one place. WordPress is also a popular site as well. You can quickly start a blog at Wordpress.com or Wordpress.org.
Blogger provides user-friendly templates for beginners however if you're ultimate goal is to monetize, it's best to select Squarespace or WordPress.
