Nowadays, online blogging is a really easy and trustworthy way to start earning from anywhere. I am choosing an educational category to advise you to start online blogging because I am an experienced blogger in the same domain.
I started my own educational blog in the year of 2018 and completed 0.5 years with a good success rate. I have done many mistakes that can be avoided easily. In this article, I will suggest how to start a proper educational blog by avoiding all the mistakes that I have done.
Required Things to Start Your Blog:
Domain Name (Blog Name): First of all, you must have your blog name that can be booked by any domain registrars. Once you decide the name of your blog, visit any domain registrar company like Godaddy and book your name that will be your blog domain name.
Hosting for Your Blog: After purchasing domain, you have to purchase hosting from any hosting provider. I will personally suggest to go with WordPress hosting packages or linux hosting.
Connect Your Domain with Your Hosting: Once you have your own domain along with hosting space, you will need to connect both with each other. You can take help of your hosting provider to connect your domain with hosting.
Install WordPress: You can install WordPress by using your hosting cpanel. You just need to open your hosting cpanel and follow the steps to install WordPress.
Setup Your WordPress Theme: After successfully installing WordPress at your domain, you can login into your WordPress panel. WordPress provide free theme by default but if you want to check any other theme then go to Appearance> Themes> Add New to choose new theme design.
I am suggesting WordPress based blog because it is really easy to use and search engines give some preference to WordPress websites/ blogs while ranking in search engine results page.
