Build a Blog in 5 Steps

If you build it, they will come. That's the philosophy of blogging; it's a community, a place where you can connect with people who are interested in the same thing as you. Chances are, if you're interested in it, there's someone else there who is as well.

  1. Pick a topic. Many beginner bloggers start by talking about anything under the sun. This is great, but you might find more direction with a single subject or niche. You don't need to be knowledgeable on the topic, but you do need to be passionate about it. The best bloggers are interesting because of their enthusiasm. They're interested, and always willing to learn. Even better, they're willing to teach, and that's part of why they blog as well. Which leads me to your next step.
  2. Find other blogs in the same niche as you. Read them. I suggest using a reader; I use google reader. It's free, easy to use, and exceptionally helpful once you start following a lot of blogs. When you're reading, pay attention to what your favorite bloggers do. What types of formatting do they use, to make their posts easy to read? Do they include images, quotes, or charts to illustrate their point? Do they generate discussion in their comments section by posing questions to their readers? During this stage, you are bound to learn not only about blogging, but things you never knew about your subject.
  3. Create your blog. I began with blogger and found it exceptionally easy to use. Later, when I bought my own domain, I had someone more technologically able import everything over to WordPress, which is also easy to use. Make sure to include an about page or section, as this helps your readers identify what you are communicating to them. It also satisfies any curiosity they may have about you.
  4. Update your blogroll. Put all the blogs you have been following in your reader, onto your blogroll. Those fellow bloggers will appreciate the shout-out and may include you on their blog roll. This is a good way to become more visible in your niche.
  5. Write your first post. Then your second. And your third. You will eventually figure out what posting rhythm works best for you; everyday, every couple of days, or whatever works best. Be sure to post regularly to keep your readers engaged. Try things out; lists, series, guest posting. Be creative and be inspired.
