A topic that you are passionate about, and that makes you start writing. It can be anything that fascinates you such as gardening, parenting, music, movies, product reviews, beauty and fashion and what not! If you wish to be a blogger, take this first step and decide what you can actually write about. once dine, nobody can stop you from realizing your goals.

Step 2: Select Your Hosting Provider 

A hosting provider will host your blog on its servers so you don’t have anything to worry about. Once decided, you need to purchase a domain name. A domain name is the URL or the web address of your website (such as we have http://www.newmumlife.com for ours). Just think of some names and check them out if they are available or not (where? you can use this – https://in.godaddy.com/domains/domain-name-search) . If available, grab it.

Some of the leading hosting and domain name providers today are:

You design your blog using the hosting provider features, use freely available themes, and make it look pretty. That’s easy and you don’t need to be a hard core developer for that. You can even hire developers to do that work for you.
