You’re probably here, simply because you’re looking for free guides on how to start a blog, or let’s say, how to start a successful blog rather, in 2019, and even 2020, and many more years to come.

Well no doubts that you’re probably at the right place, and in just a few minutes, and with just a few easy to follow steps, we’ll be showing you how you can set up and start running your own successful blog, in no time.

So without further, let’s get started… #Enjoy

But before getting started, first of all, let’s ask ourselves..

What is a blog?


Now i don’t think there is any finite definition of this blog thing, but personally, I’d say a blog is more or a less a website, maybe owned by a single person, or just a small group individuals, where they come to share and upload stuffs (mostly written articles), that people can read or view, gain knowledge from, and even share them to other persons.


There are no doubts that there are a lot of blogs today, scattered all over the internet, and that covers many various topics.

We have the popular tech blogs, such as this one, there are the celebrity blogs, gossips blogs, travel, news, politics, entertainment, and so on and so forth.

So in starting a blog, the first thing you should do is decide under what topic your blog should be under, and in case, we call it a niche, or a blogging niche rather.

Now this decision is not just something you do casually. It is a decision that is being made by heart, because a lot of people have one or two things that are driving them. You don’t go into a particular blogging section or niche, because you have a friend who is into that section and he/she is doing well.

No, you go into a blogging niche, because it is something you always love to do, or something you’re always talking and discussing about.


For example, what made me go into the tech niche was because right from when i was little, i have always loved smartphones and tech gadgets.

As i was growing up, i discovered that i was going through the internet always, to search for what was the latest smartphone, and what made each one differ from the other.

So i thought to myself, since this is something i love to do always, why not start writing about them yourself, so people can also come to read your stuffs, and that was how i started my first blogging journey.


So like i said up there, don’t just go into blogging because someone else is into it, or don’t just go into a particular niche, because you heard a lot of people are in it, and they’re doing great.

No, if you don’t have the passion for that particular niche, you will get into it, and end up being frustrated in the long run.

One of the things that drives success in a blog, is the passion for it. If you don’t have the passion, then there’s no need venturing into it at the first place.

But if you’ve made that decision to go into it and you have the driving passion, then let’s move over to the next couple of steps.. #Shall We?
