This is the best time to start a blog.
Blogging has become a way for moms and dads to stay home an earn a decent income.
There are thousand of courses on how to earn money as blogger. With Facebook groups to Pinterest board there are topic specifically on how to grow your blog audience.
There is no better time start a blog and jump in the world of blogging. With a good web hosting site (I prefer SiteGround) you can start a blog within minutes.
What Do You Want To Blog About.
What is your blog niche? Is there something that you have knowledge of that you think that would be beneficial to someone else? This is very important because you want to make sure you have the right audience for you blog.
For example, if you love to make your own pattern for sewing. Then that is a niche that you can reach, There is nothing wrong have a different topic on your blog but you main focus show be about sewing,
Another reason to have a niche is because you can be the number one resource for your reader, There are certain bloggers I visit frequently when I need something answered, such as blog growth to easy family recipe That should be your goal. That your niche or blog is the resource that your reader come to about any niche you are providing.
Monetizing Your Blog.
Most bloggers start a blog to make extra money or turn their blog into a full time income. When choosing your niche you want to make sure it a niche that you can monetize. There are several ways to make money with your blog, Some ways to make money on your blog is sponsored post, affiliate marketing, sell space on their blog for advertiser, offer services or sell your own product.
The important thing to remember is that your niche should be able to give you the opportunity to earn an income.
Choosing SiteGround As Your Web Hosting Site
When I started back blogging I knew I wanted a reliable and inexpensive web hosting site. I done my research and with SiteGround I knew I was getting a great deal on great service
There Uptime is 99.99%
I started with Bluehost but I constantly kept getting reports that my site was down. As a blogger that is never good. With SiteGround I have never had that issue. They have a reliable uptime and if my site does go down it is only down for a couple of seconds. SiteGround has uptime of 99.99% which is great for blog
SiteGround has 24/7 service. Either by chat or by phone. That is good if you are not computer savvy. Plus, if you are new blogger you want a web hosting site company that can help anytime you need them. I am a night hawk and I do majority of blogging at night. If something happen to my website I like the idea of reaching out to my web hosting company in the middle of the night instead of waiting the next day to speak with someone.
Choose A Package
SiteGround has three package to choose from: Start Up, Grow Big, and Go Geek. I recommend as a new blogger to get the Start up. Here is why. As a new blogger you are still fine tuning your blog and trying to reach your audience. If blogging is something you are starting out as part time and want to grow full time later then getting the Start UP will be great for your budget. The Start UP it is only $3.95 per month which is great for anyone budget. Plus if you purchase one of the larger packages and realize blogging is not your thing at least you have not spent a whole lot of money.
Choose A Domain Name
If you have not chose a domain name you can choose one right on SiteGround, I recommend to get a .com domain name because it is recognizable and more common. A lot of people stress about having a blog name match that match their niche. I on the other head rather you not stress that much about it. My blog name is Blissful Corner but it is about mompreneurs and home management. Let me tell you I have change my blog name so many time trying to find something for my niche but I did not like it. My rule of thumb if you have a blog that has good SEO and good content the blog name is something you should not stress about.
