It is all because we are looking at getting something that will be looking very professional so that we can be successful from day one. With this mindset many have not yet started because they are looking at getting a very professional blog from the beginning.

Taking all this into consideration I will be share with you some top three tips that will help you at starting a successful blog. It might sound like it is something that is very difficult all because you did not have any one to guide you in this. You might have also been guide but not by hand and that is what you wanted, which I will be sharing with you as your guide so that you can get started.

Give you blog a professional look:

In any business it is not all about just getting started but being organised from day one so that you have the right audience from day one. This will be possible by making sure that you have professional theme for your blog. What we are doing here is having all right tools in places for the word start. By so doing all those that had come to our site by mistake will remain as faithful followers that will come back again and again. Getting these themes will also depend on traffic that you will be targeting so you will have to get something that will be in line with you target market. Meaning there will be have to be some research to be done as it will not better offering the young generation something that is for the older generation that will not work out very well with them. If this will be the case then you will be having many that will leave your blog and never come back

Identify your audience:

Here your will be looking at who are you looking at targeting when it come to your blog. This will be in different categories that you will be looking at them like what is there interest, age range, marital status, sex locations and many more just to make sure that you have selected to target market so well.

Many are looking at just getting any information online and sharing with their audience but that does not really give the best result because it will be same information that they have seen elsewhere.  Apart from that it will affect your google ranking a lot that you will not have any general traffic coming over to your blog. Make yourself unique by making sure all the information that you will be sharing here will be something that you have researched about and know very well before writing. You might be busy and no ready to write then I suggest that you hire a freelancer to do the writing for you so that you have fresh content.

If all these tips that I have shared here are well followed you will find that you are starting a successful blog without anyone telling you or holding you by hand.

Major places where many have started from by blogging as their blogging place is blogger which is under google. Apart from this there are also other places and that is WordPress which also another competitor of blogspot.

However the only challenge that you will have with these places, to blog for free you will have to use site url that are customized by themselves. If you want your own domain name then you will have to buy one and link it to your blog by masking the address of that bog.

Free Vs Hosted blogging

Blogging can be mistry to many that are about to get started. When you are just about to get started there will be many things that you will be looking at like what kind of the blog should I start hosted blogging or free blogging.

It has been challenging that many are looking at what will be the right way to get started in blogging because they are not sure whether the hosted or free blog or hosted what will be better. To make this very clear to all those that are in the same boats.  I will be sharing the best of the right blogging platform that you can use and its benefits.

In short the right blogging way to follow is hosted blog and there are some of reasons as to why this better.

Effective SEO

Hosted blogging

 For all the hosted blog you will be able to get the best effective SEO for that blog using plug ins that you can install and set up that will really help. Using these plugins you will have the opportunity that you would not experience if you are using free blog platforms like blogspot and wordpress which are the famous free platforms. It will also be very easy to really rank using these plugins online after they have been setup so well.

Beautiful design;

If anyone will be coming over to your blog there will be some that will come because of the beauty that is there. Due to the best design of themes that are being developed when it comes to the hosted blog you will definitely get the best and attractive themes. Just to clear this I will use a simple illustration that all of us out there we are always looking at something that is really nice and we associate ourselves with things like these. For that reason you will be looking for something that is pleasing to the eye even online and you get these themes using hosted blogs.

Professional look;

Here we will be looking at the domain name that you will get is you have a hosted blog. Most of the free blogs you will have domain name like WordPress or blogspot these are not professional looking names that you will love to see or easily remember. Since you are using the hosted blog it will be your very intention to have a professional blog that will have all requirement of the professional blog. Apart from domain name you will have better looking and more professional looking blog because of the settings that you will have laid out on this blog.

Fully under your control;

for those that are using the free blog they will agree with me that it is not hundred percent under their control. If you have free blog and are not sure about then please learn something today because using a free blog if people report you as scam or spam your blog will be shut down without any notice. Apart from this you will be restricted to the links that you can add to your blog which is different compared to the hosted blog where you have full rights and can add as many links as you possibly can without any issues at all.

Finally after getting to this point you will have the made the right best decision to making the right decision on the blog type you will be going for.

Just making it short and to the point I will recommend that you go with the hosted blog and that will be the right direction that you will be following in your blogging career so that you do not regret.
