How to start a blog is one of the most common questions that have been around since the word blogging has come into existence. Let me give you some simple but important tips that will help you get started.

Choose Your Niche

You don't necessarily have to choose a niche, but if you have one, it would be great. Ideally, you may want to go for a niche that you are most passionate about. For instance, it could be running, cooking, or online marketing. Whatever it is, what you need to do is write about it and put the write-ups on your blog.

Define Your audience

After choosing a certain niche, your next step is to decide who will read your blog. For instance, if your blog is about fishing, your audience will be the people who are interested in fishing. Make sure you keep your audience in mind when publishing posts on your blog.

Add Value.

Make sure your content has something that will add value to the lives of your readers. In other words, the content on your blog should solve some problems faced by your readers. Adding value is a great way of getting new visitors and then making them come back for more.

Be Original

Of course, people may have already written a lot about what you are going to write about. So, why would they read your blog? The answer is that they will read your blog to know your perspective and your creativity. So, you should be original.

Be Honest

You should embody the topics you write about. In other words, you should be honest and explain your perspective with total honestly. You don't try to be someone else or your readers will notice it.

Post consistently

When should you post a new blog post? Well, it doesn't matter. What matters the most is that you should post consistently. In other words, if you post weekly, always post weekly. Your readers will be waiting for your post each week.

Use Social Media

Blogs can integrate well with social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in order to stay in touch with your fellow bloggers and readers. But don't spend too much time on Facebook. Your main focus should be on writing great blog posts.

Ignore Trolls

Don't pay attention to trolls. Trolls are non-serious guys who make stupid comments just to grab everyone's attention. All you need to do is ignore them and focus on what is important to you.

Keep It Simple

Keep your site interface simple. Your site shouldn't be full of widgets or advertisements or you may end up annoying your readers. All you need to do is have all the basic things on your blog and get rid of all the stuff that is not really needed.

Picture 

If possible, you should display your picture on your blogs. Your readers may want to see the personality behind your blog.
