How To Start Blogging


It has been two years when I started blogging. It even took me a year to finally established my blog. I remember when I just started blogging, I just wanted to save my photos and memories. I just wanted to write whatever is in my head. I started writing even years ago, and yes, I also had Tumblr just like anyone else.

And now, I feel so blessed that I am able to earn money from blogging. It was not that easy, I got a lot of rejection from AdSense and even from people around me. I heard a lot of critisisms. But all those hardships payed off when I started receiving my monthly revenue from AdSense. And guess what, it has been almost a year since I started earning from my blog. It already payed the 12€ that I paid for my domain, which was the only money I used in stablishing this blog.

Based on the people I met in the past, I can say that I am not the best writer. I just write based on my own perception and that is a good thing about blogging, there is no such thing as “wrong blog writing”. It is all up to you on how you are going to build your own world inside your blog. 


I know that you are reading until here because you want to know how to start blogging. After I published my first articles until now, I received a lot of messages asking on how to start blogging, how much I earn from it, how to get monetized, etc. So, without further ado, let´s get started.

How To Start Blogging

1. Think About The Topic You Want to Talk About


On choosing your topic, it should be something you know about. For example, your passion, your hobbies, something you studied about way back in college,  etc. It should be broad, by this, you can make branches out of it to talk about in your blog. 

As you can see on my blog, I talk about ¨Beauty and Travel¨. So I write about my experiences in traveling and the beauty products I use. It is better to have two or more connected topics so it will give you more ideas to write.

2. Build Your Own Blog


Nowadays, there are a lot of ways or channel to build your own blog. The two most famous are Blogger and Wordpress. You can make your research about their differences and benefits, by that, you can choose on which you can get along. 

I am using Blogger because it is much easier to build and use. It is categorized by easy to understand terminologies.

3. Write Your Pages


Pages are consisted of ¨About Me¨, ¨Contact Me¨, and ¨Privacy Policy¨. This pages are important, just like on building a house, you need windows and doors so that you can call it ¨house¨. Pages work like that in every website or blog. Pages are also important specially if you are planning to work with AdSense. AdSense needs to see how legit and worthy your blog is, so you need to show off a little bit to make it look professional.

4. Write Your Articles


On number 1, I told you that you need to think something that you want to write about and that it should be broad. Because in writing your articles, you will make branches from the topic you chose. You cannot make a blog about Mathematics and write articles about Science. Those two are not connected to any point. Just like in blogging, you cannot write two random articles because it will just show inconsistency on your blog.

5.  Buy Your Domain


A domain name is the address where Internet users can access your website. For example, www.dreamsonfleek.com, www.theconquerorsph.com, etc. 

Maybe you get a little bit confused about ¨domain¨. But remember when you just made your blog in blogger or any other site? You were using, ¨www.dreamsonfleek.blogspot.com¨. What does that mean? The easiest explanation is, that is like renting a house in blogger. You cannot call that yours, that is a property of blogger. And to make that blog yours, you need to buy your own house, and that is domain.

6. Sign Up For AdSense


AdSense is an advertisement company that put advertisement of other companies. From that, you can now start earning money from your blog. But before getting approved, AdSense has their own standard that you should achieve.

Domain is indeed important because before applying for AdSense, they require you to have your own domain. You need to sign up in AdSense using the same email address that you used on your blog. And if you want me to write an article about how to get approved by AdSense, just leave a comment!
