How to start a blog for free

How to Start a blog for free - Chasing Thoughts

So it has been days since you were wondering about starting a new blog?
Or was it like you never got a real way of finding out from where to start blogging.

In this post, I will be trying to explain the simple steps for starting the blogging journey.

Starting your blog in 4simple steps -

  1. Choose a blogging platform.
  2. Pick a domain name.
  3. Design & use your blog!
  4. Decide what to blog about.

  1. Choose a blogging platform.

    There are many blogging platforms to choose from. WordPress, Blogger, Squarespace, Wix and Weebly are a few.At first, you need to decide you want to go ahead with which blogging platform. Currently, I am using Blogger. It is a simple blogging platform with an easy way to handle your content. This is one of the free hosted blogging platforms.In case you are not planning to invest in the initial days of blogging. I would suggest picking anything in between blogger/WordPress based on your ease and suitability.
  2. Pick a domain name

    In case of free blogs, your domain name will end with the blog service provider name. Like, suppose you are starting your blog on the blogger website and choosing the name "Sankz". If the name will be available then the blog address/domain would be www.sankz.blogspot.com

    Same goes for the WordPress site as well.
  3. Design and use your blog

    A good theme gives you the look and feels you want to your blog, allowing you to make a blog that looks exactly how you want it to look. If you’re not a coder (we certainly weren’t), then a theme makes the design work a million times easier. Blogger/Wordpress both of them provides free themes which are easy to install. You can pick anything among them and start using that.
  4. Decide what to blog about

    The reason a kept this point as the last one is not because this is not important. This particular stuff is the most important part of the blogging journey. As you have already heard about this numerous times. Content is king. So in order to engage the audience on your blog. You have to make sure that you are writing good and quality content which will come in use for everyone.

    Since you were already searching for how to start a blog. I am sure you must have thought through about this and hoping to start something related to your hobby. Spend some time in researching and creating quality contents for your blog.
