Blogging is the best way to share your knowledge with the world. Blogging is also among the popular online money making methods. Its a booming internet activity now a days. Blogging can be done in two ways, either write your blog posts on some other sites or start your own blog site.
How to Start a Blog
Blogging without registering a site :
Blogging can be done without registering a site by writing your blog posts on some other sites that allow blog posting. If you are planning to write your posts on some other sites then I can advise you to visit Blogspot and WordPress. Some more options such as search engine journal and type-pad are available but the best among all are Blogspot and WordPress.
Blogging by registering a site
Although you can start blogging without registering a site but the experts advise to register a site and then blog. Starting a site is not a million dollar deal now. All you need is to think of a domain name and register it using Godaddy. Buy some web space. In my view, Hostgator and Godaddy are the best choice for buying web space. Take the support of WordPress, and insert and install some WordPress plugins to start your site. If you do not have any idea of how to go with this process then you can hire an expert website designer to do all this for you and the best site to hire experts is freelancer.com. Alternatively you can also browse some reliable sites to find the best deal. One site I can recommend for getting your site designed is All About Website.
If you are doing all things yourself then starting the blog site may not cost you anything more than $40 or $50 but if you are hiring an expert website designer and developer then also you can start a basic blogging site just for $200-$300. So if you are hiring an expert then keep the cost figure in mind and don’t waste the hard earned money by hiring too expensive designers.
