Self hosted vs Free Blogging Platform?
As I mentioned, you can start your blog today with self hosted website setup that’ll costs you a couple of dollars to setup i.e., for example softstribe.com is a self hosted site.
But, it doesn’t necessary that you must start a self hosted site while you are newbie in the world of blogging. There are a lot of things that you have to learn about blogging and we suggest you to start by using any of the free blogging platforms.

Once you find your passionate niche then you can simply create a blog about your interested niche because you know the main purpose of creating your blog.

Steps to Make Money Blogging Online
I’m gonna confuse you about how blogging works? How to make money from blogging online? Listen just be patient and learn each and every step that I’m going to talk about below in this article.
Call me friend!
I’m quick and straight forward guy and trying to help others around the globe to make money from home. That’s why I’m writing this guide where I have compiled a list of 12 simple steps to make money by blogging online. These are a few steps below that’ll change your lifestyle only if you read, follow and to use them to build a successful blog online.
1. Find your interest
Finding your interest is one of the most important thing that led a blog to failure or success. Although, it seems really common and easy step to get started with blogging online. The thing is, a lot of people have already been failed in blogging because they didn’t knew about their interest.
For example, like we have an aim in life we get up in the morning and go to school, college and university. At last we become something i.e., Doctor, Engineer, Philosopher just like that you must know your interest in blogging.
If you don’t have any interest and you are blogging on your blog randomly. What do you expect, why people should read your blog daily? Since you post randomly, you don’t know about your audience what do they like and why they land on your blog. Random blog posting means you will not have any loyal blog audience.
Blogging with no purpose will result your blog has no daily returning visitors. The visitors who visit your blog from search, they will bounce away because you don’t offer your audience an incentive about your online blog. Interest is what makes you a successful blogger and makes your blog outstanding from other online bloggers.
Note: Make money blogging online is a long long journey that requires time and your hard work.
The niche of your blog plays a vital role in building a successful blog online, it separates you from other blogs online. If you are expert in something such as health/fitness then you should start a blog about it and keep posting about health tips. It is obvious that you shouldn’t waste your time writing about technology or computer programming articles because that’s not your interest. Similarly, you shouldn’t be posting about tech on your health blog because your blog audience will be annoyed and they will be able to know that you are only blogging for the sake of money.
You should be frank with your blog audience, engage with them and help them when they need help.
2. Read Blogs in Your Niche
You should read the blogs in your niche because reading other blogs in your niche will give you new ideas. Along with reading other blogs you should consistently comment on them to know more about your niche and engage with others. If you engage, comment, share others’ blogs people will do the same for you. This is one of the best trick I found ever in my blogging career.
3. Register a website
Once you found your interest in a niche now its time to move up. Stop using free blogging platforms because it’s time to move forward and build your own successful official website. If you are building a powerful community then it requires only a few things i.e., Choose a good domain name & a better web hosting (but I use Arvixe.com as my web hosting provider, because I love Arvixe). If you have bought a good domain name for your official website and a good web hosting then it’s time to build a website online.

- But in my opinion if you have read this complete guide, then Google will not disapprove you because I didn’t teach you anything that violates Google AdSense policy
- So, there are more chances to get Google AdSense approved once done, login to your AdSense and get ad codes and add the code in your blog to show ads on your site
