15 – Backing up your blog
Whether you’re looking to sell more products or just looking for ways to make money from home, blogging is still an option.
Why? Because people read blogs. They also scour the web for information on how to change the oil in their car or how to get the hottest look in season. Then they click on the links and buy products or services related to the topic of the post.
Here are a few simple steps you can take to begin the process of preparation for blogging.
Name your blog
For those who are interested in starting a blog, we first recommend buying a domain name. (Do you already have one? Continue with Step 2)
You need a domain name to create a blog. This becomes the address of your blog. Until a few years ago, bloggers usually had fewer options for web extensions, usually. Low or net. Now you can get the .blog extension for your web address. Brilliant, isn't it?
Choose a blog creator
The most common question about how to blog is, which blogging platform should I use? Although there are many options, WordPress is a favorite so it is easy to configure.
Choose a web host
Web hosting is what makes your blog visible to others on the web. Without it no one will see your blog posts except you. Hosting usually runs on a server owned by a web hosting company and your blog takes up only a small space on that server. It's like renting a single apartment in a building. You pay for the space you use.
Link your domain name to your blog
Whichever hosting company you choose, you must have a tutorial on how to link your domain to your blog. Otherwise, it's a red flag and you may want to reconsider your host.
Attaching your domain to your blog should not be like brain surgery. It should be quick and easy. After you finish this step, the fun will begin.
Design your blog
It's time to dump her and move on. Now when you choose an additional plugin to improve the functionality of your WordPress theme and your blog. Whether you choose a free or paid theme, be sure to choose one that reflects who you are and what you are doing. You want it to be stable, clean and easy to work with.
Publish your first post
Now before you go crazy, it’s not as scary as it sounds. Your first post could be a paragraph to announce the birth of your new blog. You can headline it, "Welcome to our new blog". If you're a little more ambitious, you can make a long post with a couple of Nifty images, something like "What you can expect from this blog". Or choose a middle ground.
Promote your posts, write more, wash and repeat
You are now blogging for business, honey! You spread the word about that first post and all the blog posts that everyone subscribed to by sharing a link on your favorite social networks and hopefully confirm this sooner rather than later on your newsletter subscriber list.
Once you've developed a healthy archive of blog posts, use it to keep growing. You can continue to refine your SEO skills, learn how to use your blog to drive more traffic to increase sales, and submit your content to the media to establish yourself as an expert in your field. Now that you are in the business blogging bandwagon, the possibilities are truly endless!
