How to start a blog?

To start a blog you have to prepare, plan and have to do certain researches to create a successful blog.

3 phases are there to start a blog

1Phase - BEFORE STARTING BLOGGING   

Before creating your blog I will advise for the following preparation

1 BLOG POST TITLE: 


Any catchy title which attracts viewers related to the contents is a first success to drive readers to your post.

Your blog's attractive name, which is easy to remember and have search volume on Google or any other search engine, is the first step for generating traffic to your blog.

2 CONTENT IDEA TOOLS


As you are about to start a blog you need to mix your knowledge along with people choices. 

What the viewers want to know?

You should try to give an appropriate solution for the viewer's problem.

To know what the viewers are searching to get the ideas for your content the following are the best tools.
 
Quora is the best site to get an idea of what most people want to know 
Google trends help to know the trending contents
Blog Topic Generator 
Buzzsumo
Ahrefs content explorer

3 DESKTOP EDITOR


While reading if your viewer gets irritated due to spelling mistakes and language he will immediately leave your site and will never return to your site. 

Hence it's advisable to use correct language without any mistakes for which you require a desktop editor.

It's correct your grammatical mistakes and helps you to write bold & clear. 

The following are some of the desktop editors. 
Hemingway Editor 
Grammarly
Frase

4 BLOG READING & CONTENT DISCOVERY


Read more blogs to discover the content and what your competitors are writing, how they are writing, what topics they have used in their blogs.

5 NOTE-TAKING TOOLS


While reading or doing something an idea click in your brain note down immediately on 
Evernote
Trello  
you can also have fun, plan, organize on the above tools

6 DESKTOP IMAGE EDITING/VIDEO RECORDING TOOLS


To make a blog attractive/informative we need to insert images/videos.

The following are a few of the tools for editing images and videos.
 
Loom & Snagit are screens & video recorder software, it can also be used in vlogging( video for Youtube to share your experience)
Canva, Pixir, Picmonkey are some of the image editors
Picfont is good to add text in the pic.

Use the right size(600 x 335 pixel) of an image to avoid more loading time of the blog. Resize on  Simple Image Resizer

7 KEYWORDS RESEARCH TOOLS


Keywords are one of the most important factors to generate traffic from search engines.

Keywords are the group of words that is used by the searcher on search engines to know something, to get the answer to their queries. 

Research for the keywords to use in your blog which will facilitate search engines to discover your blog for high ranking from millions of other blogs.

Find out the exact keywords which have high search volume and low keyword difficulty.

If more blogger is using the same keywords then it's difficult to rank high for that particular keywords due to a lot of competition.   
 
Keep one or two long-tail keywords to optimize search. 

Suppose you select the keyword "shoes", make it specific as "men's shoe", more specific "comfortable men's shoes", again you can make a long-tail keyword as "comfortable men's shoes with a broad front", this will provide search engines to lead to your Blog.

Although the volume may be low you can rank higher for this particular keyword.
