1. How to choose niche / Topic for my blog? Choosing a niche for your blog is actually the base on which your blog will stand. In case of any mistake you can’t be a successful blogger. So before creating a blog you need to decide what you should blog about. To choose a niche for your blog first you need to search what trending on internet or blog about what you know. For example if you know about how to make money online, start blogging about it. It will surely bring you a big audience. Furthermore if you know about cooking then you can start blogging about cooking and share your recipes with others.
Also if you know about programming you can start a blog about it. But the thing is you must know about the thing about which you are going to start blogging. So the bottom line is start blogging about something you know or what is trending but first know about it. 2. What should I choose as blogging platform(WordPress Or Blogger) Before we judge whether we choose wordpress or blogger for blogging let me share features of both:
Features of blogger: The first feature of blogger is overview where you can see latest updates of your blog such as comments, today page views, total posts, followers and a graph which shows your traffic stats. The second one is post where you can see how many posts are in draft or published. You can edit them here. After posts other option is comments which shows you how many comments you have approved to show and how many are spam. The fourth is Google+ where you can manage where to share your updates whether on your on profile or any page you created on Google+.
After Google+ there is another option of stats which describes your blog’s traffic briefly. It shows today’s traffic, yesterday’s traffic, Last month page views, all the time traffic, countries of visitors, the pages they have visited and traffic sources. Other option is earnings, if you have a Google AdSense account your earnings will show up here. A new feature is also added which is campaigns where you can create ads of your posts which will show up in Google searches. It is very easy way to increase your blog traffic but its worth. After campaigns there is a layout option where you can change favicon of your blog, select a navigation bar, add description,title or image to header, edit blog posts settings and add or remove a gadget to your blog.
After layout there is Template option with which you can customize or edit your blog template and can choose another template for your blog. After all options there is a last and very important option of settings which helps you to control posts and comments settings, basic settings, search preferences, language, time zone, date and other.
