Is blogging a conceivable way to make money on the Internet? It is for sure an excellent way to make money as many marketers with a competence have succeeded in earning a full time income with their blogs. So, how does a person without technical skills can start blogging?

Beginning and updating a blog is not technically hard, the difficulty is more on the writing aspect. Bloggers have to be experts in some areas, it might be fishing, dog obedience training, growing plants or cooking. In order to succeed it is important to like writing and be committed to post articles regularly.

After the blog topic has been chosen, and with already a lot of things to say, a domain name can be chosen. Some people will include their name in the domain name to make it more personal, others will just name it after their topic. The second thing to do will be to buy a hosting account and point the domain to it.

The temptation for a newbie would be to use a free Blogger or Wordpress account. This is not really a good idea in the long term as the blogger is not totally in control, with some restrictions and their content at the mercy of a suspended account. It also appears less professional to the audience and future advertisers of the blog.

After signing-up for hosting, the control panel should offer the possibility to install Wordpress automatically with Fantastico. This usually takes less than five minutes and blogging can start immediately. It is important to remember the admin password that has been chosen at that point.

After entering the Admin area in Wordpress, the different options and tools can be seen. More tools that are called plug-ins can be added later to incorporate some more functionality. New bloggers may start writing while learning and improving their blog along the way.

There is a possibility to change the look of the blog in installing a Wordpress theme from the admin section. There are a lot of them available for free, and it is best to choose one that is simple and readable, with dark fonts on a white or light background, keeping in mind that what is more important is content, not design.

Blogging should be like a hobby for new bloggers, posting useful articles, working on SEO, improving the blog, before expecting earning money from it. When the blog improves and more people are reading the articles, it will be time to slowly introduce adverts.

The blog can make money from four main ways. The first one is to sell ad spaces to advertisers, the second is to join a paid link network, the third is to place Google Ads and the last is to insert affiliate products related to the blog. There are of course, more possibilities that can be experienced after the blogger gets more experience.
