Why Do People Start Blogging?
Dear friends my name is Satendra Kumar. I am a blogger since college. During my graduation, I write many blogs and work on many blogging platforms. I used to write articles while some of my friends passed time in gossip and watching movies in free time.
Here I am not saying that watching movies is bad but you will realize the benefit at the end of this story. After completing college all placed in different-different government and private companies.
They are doing 9-5 jobs. Actually, the 9-5 title is only for the name, in the private sector people have to work till late at night. They have to obey the orders of their boss. I am sharing this because of my personal experience. As I am also, a victim of the private sector 9-5 job.
All my friends are earning good money but they are not happy. They are just a key to their boss. They have to walk as their boss want.
Now come to me, I have quit my job. I am doing full-time blogging for the last 2 years.
I am my own boss. I have my own work and my own life schedule. I take leave when I decide. And I am earning very good money from blogging.
This is a single screenshot of my AdSense account from one of my websites. Along with this, I earn from Amazon Affiliate, YouTube, Media.net, Skimlinks, and many more advertising and an affiliate platform.
I am not saying that my earning is a fix but it’s the lower payout is 5times more than my salary. I am happy with my work and share my knowledge with others.
There may be so many reasons to start a blog. As per my personal experience what I get from people is given below. People start blogs because:
- They Want to live a boss free life.
- People want to do something with their own knowledge.
- Some people want to earn extra money.

Top Blogging Secrets
1. Chose a Good Blogging Platform
Choosing a proper blogging platform to ensure your blogging career. There are mostly two types of known blogging. Video Blogging and Text Blogging.
Suppose you are a good dancer then you have to select video blogging. Otherwise, it will become more difficult for you to start a website and creating text content.
Also, we should consider all initial investment with our blogs like hosting, theme, etc. For starting a video blog YouTube will be much cheaper compared to the website.
If you are good at writing and write user engaging content then you should start a website.
Actually, there are two main types of websites available to work on.
- Static Website
- Dynamic Website
1. Static Websites
All single page or tool based websites are known as static websites. In these websites, we just do coding and connect it with the hosting. These single or multiple page websites have fixed content.
2. Dynamic Websites
As the name indicates these websites have dynamic pages, templates, scripts, etc. These websites are a combination of complex coding. Here we need to update our content on a regular basis.
Well, this was the basic introduction to static and dynamic websites. Now we will see the blogging secrets of these websites.
2. Make A Habit of Investment
I have seen many students say that first, they will use free themes and free plugins. Once they will start earning from their blog then they will purchase premium themes and plugins.
Friends it’s a very bad habit. Because in free system you miss so many opportunities. Suppose you are using a free theme then you will get less customization option and less responsiveness compared to premium.
All free themes are just for the demo of premium versions. Developers offer their basic version for testing only. If you want true responsiveness, SEO benefit, Customization support, and readymade custom design then always go for a premium theme. Divi Themes is one of the best and easy to use solution for beginner to professional.
Take my personal example:
I have started the BlogSeoGuru.com website. Check my initial Investment detail in making this website.
|Website Component||Initial Cost|
|Domain Name [BlogSeoGuru.Com]||[12.06$] Rs: 860/-|
|SiteGround Hosting||[143.40$] Rs:10218.33/-|
|Genesis Framwork + Magzine Pro Theme||[99.95$] Rs:7122.19/-|
|Yoast SEO Premium||[ 89$ ] Rs: 6341.92/-|
|Total||[264.41$] Rs: 18841.20|
So, this is my initial investment for this blogseoguru.com. I am not saying that you always make such a huge investment but once you try the premium features and you will say that this initial investment is just nothing.
If you want to start a blog and make money then follow my step by step guide.
Blogging Secrets For Beginners
1. Work on Static Websites
Static websites are single pages of fixed content page websites or most of the time tool based websites. Likewise, Static websites required onetime hard work and long term return.
It is very difficult to beat an existing static website. So look for the current problem arising for people and create a tool based website for them.
Likewise, it is very easy to rank a static website because it gives you an opportunity to optimized 100% for search engines. The cost of hosting a static website is very low compared to dynamic websites.
But it is not always easy to create a tool based website as they required more skills to code compared to dynamic website platform like WordPress, Joomla, etc.
Also, you should have proper keyword research and keyword optimization knowledge for starting a static website. As your main keyword is your domain and you have no other choice for writing content and beating the competition.
2. Work on Micro Niche Websites [Blogging Secrets]
Each and every person have their personal interest. If you want to get success in blogging in current competitive time then you should work on micro niche websites.
People are getting more and smarter now and they demand specialists for their problems and query. Likewise, it is very easy to rank a brand new micro-niche website.
Suppose you have knowledge of cricket and want to start a website with cricket. Ther you should focus on a particular topic like score bord, live update, player news, sixer or run records, etc.
Micro Nich means a subcategory of your selected category. And this will give you a definite success in your blogging career. Because it is one of the biggest blogging secrets.
3. Responsive Design & Mobile Optimization
People are transforming from desktop to mobile search. I personally get my 70-80% traffic from mobile search. This is the mobile or smartphone era. And we have to optimize our blog or website as per the current situation.
To improve user experience, use the AMP version. This will increase the loading speed because Google stores the cookies of all AMP friendly websites.
Initially, I was using the free WordPress theme and SEO plugins with one of my blogs. And I was getting good traffic on that particular blog. But somewhere I was adjusting with my customization and ranking.
Then I decide to switch for free to a paid theme. I purchased the Newspaper theme and Premium Yoast SEO plugin. I paid $69 for a Newspaper theme and almost $29 for Premium Yoast SEO Plugin.
You cant imagine after two months of use my traffic get a quick boost in Google ranking. I have to change my hosting from shared to Cloud.
