There are many other benefits you can avail by researching before creating any blog of your own, if are serious about blogging than read this guide with easy steps on thinking before creating.

1. Choose the name first

Name is everything!! From marketing your business to social media appearance and search engine rankings, the name is everything.

Take this blog for example: As I have it live on "www.allblogthings.com" and my readers will get an quick idea on its content just by reading the URL.

What about yours? are you have a perfect and highly target-able domain name?

If you are about to register a domain name, please wait, and research about that name you are thinking about, ask your friends/family members they will suggest you the best "as I get this ideal domain name suggestion from one of my dear friend Bilal Akbar".

Checklist before choosing a name:
  1. Search and create a list of same meanings names
  2. Make sure your blog name is short
  3. Make it easy to pronounce and spell
  4. Select a clear and to the point domain name
For example:

If you are thinking about starting a blog on Finance and about to select a name for domain. you should select finance.com as your official blog address.

As that name is not available you can add other words such as profinance, myfinance, ourfinance, thefinanceblog or any other you can think yourself.

2. Choose the right platform for your blog

After choosing the name, its time to select a good and best platform for your blog hosting and maintaining.

For this, we will choose a CMS (content management system) to make our job easier.

And there are many CMS's available for free and some of them are really really great such as WordPress and Blogger by Google.

It depends on your needs and growth of your services, as if you want to create a next Mashable.com you should choose WordPress because of its expendable features technology.

But, Blogger by Google Inc, is a great platform for launching a simple yet awesome blog about your company or yourself.

The great example is Twitter is using this (Blogger.com) platform for publishing new updates on its blog. I also recommend to use Blogger in starting and after that if you feel you've to expend your blog, you can migrate it to self hosted WordPress blog.

3. Find a perfect topic (niche) for your blog

You have the domain pointed to your favorite blogging platform (WordPress or Blogger) now its time to select a perfect and easy to write on topic for your blog.


You don't have to search or research for selecting a blogging niche, it could be your favorite thing or topic.

Just take a deep breath and sit back on your seat to relax your mind, drink cool water and think what is the most discussed topic in your daily routine? what you can write on with ease and what is the topic you will love to write many blog posts on a daily basis?

Hopefully you'll get many ideas, create a list of that ideas and now research on them to find good and low competition topic, because with low competition you can rise easily to get your spot.

For example: If you love to listen to music daily, than try to blog about musicians, music tips, latest music software etc you can imagine of.

If you are certified doctor and love to write about medicine or healthy living, than you can start a blog about health tips, fruits and their benefits, how to lose weight and more.

4. Creating a URL for your Blog

Many suggests even they don't implement their suggested strategies, I am different- I firstly test and than write for you.

I know you've registered the domain name and selected the platform too, its time to get your blog live on a URL.

If your blog is about a service, platform or any online tool you should make it live at a sub-directory like "blog.website.com" or "website.com/blog".

In any other case: If you are planning to start a blog about fashion or something else, you can choose a separate domain name such as "www.fashion.com" etc.

Basically the sub-directory blog is for a service or any platform as its right hand.

5. Create an outstanding UI of your blog

Users Interface is a globally talked and viral thing to consider while creating any blog or website, you should make it clear to reader.

A clear and cleaner theme/template design is essential for now. Everyone wants to revisit a beautifully designed blog (a good design can reduce your bounce rate).

It also affects your advertisers to bid more on advertising spaces at blog.

Keep in mind: Simple is best, and the best is simple. Take Google's homepage for an example. There is nothing but a search engine with two buttons and loads in no-time.

Basically you have to make your blog load faster and look professional with a cleaner design.

6. Design a good logo

To represent your blog, you should design a great and all-about-your-blog logo.

Take example of Twitter's bird logo. It represents Twitter with its looks and feel.

A logo should be:
  • Traditionally designed
  • A sign of your brand or blog
  • Like to tell viewers abut your business
  • Make it feels that no-one can design a logo like this
The point is: You have to create a logo which can describe your blog's aim.

7. Set a blog publishing frequency

To make influence on your readers with your writings you should set a blog post publishing frequency to manage content and readers.

People and search engine bots loves the fresh and new content which bloggers publish on daily basis, but they also loves great and highly researched and well written articles.

We can see Google brought us many links of 3 to 6 years old pages for many queries, because of quality of information.

In the end, I would like to suggest a tip:

Don't publish blog posts on daily basis, instead try to add authoritative and informative blog posts.

It doesn't matter that you update your blog with new blog post on daily or weekly basis, just make sure whenever you publish blog posts "write only informative and good in quality articles".


Blogging is conditional to make money or exposure on your business offline/online.

If you really want something extra from your use of internet, than you should try to blog about that thing you can easily write on and have awesome hold on that thing - having above listed things in mind before creating a blog or blog post.

Its all about thinking and creating unique content which is not available on internet before you hit the publish button, and make sure you've organized content to make readers come again.
