But before we start discussing about the 5 main topics mentioned above, let me quickly answer 3 frequently asked questions that often scare many would-be bloggers from getting involve in blogging.
Question 1: What is a blog?
A blog is a website or section of a website, where a person regularly publish articles about a particular subject or a topic that he or she has sufficient knowledge about.
The process of updating a blog is called ‘blogging’ and the person who regularly updates a blog is called a blogger. For example www.comofficialwebsite.com is a blog and the person who regularly publish new articles on this blog is a blogger.
So you are going to create your own blog to write and publish articles about a topic or a subject that you have sufficient knowledge about. In other words you are going to use your blog as a platform to share your knowledge with the world and make money in the process.
When we get to the procedures to start a blog, you are going to learn about how to choose a topic (subject) to blog about.
Question 2: How much does it cost to start a blog and start making money online?
You just need an internet connection, a laptop/PC, knowledge to share with the world and a good writing skill to effectively present your knowledge. Yes! that,s all you need in order to become a blogger and start making money online (and get paid through Western Union).
Question 3: How much does it cost to hire a professional web designer?
You don,t need to hire web designer to create a blog for you.
Nowadays its very easy to create a blog. That,s why there are many bloggers and blogs in existence today.Improvement in technology has really made life easy. Nowadays anybody with a laptop and internet connection can easily create a blog (including your granny lol) thanks to the availability of so many free web design templates. The web design templates provided by the various blogging platforms makes it possible for anybody to create a blog with just a few clicks of the mouse.
So if you have created an email address or a Facebook account by yourself then you will be able to create a blog by yourself without any stress. I,m very serious!. Its very easy. In fact it won,t take us more than 6 minutes to create a blog.
Enough of all this talking, let,s get down to business so that you can see exactly what i,m talking about.
Things to do before creating your blog.
Step 1: Choose your niche (the topic or subject of your blog).
The niche of a blog is the topic or subject that a blogger has choosen to blog about. Like i told you before, people create blogs based on topics or subjects that they have sufficient knowledge about.So you need to choose a topic or subject that you have sufficient knowledge about and start a blog on that topic.
For example if you think you have sufficient knowledge about Cocoa farming, you can start a blog on that topic, if you have sufficient knowledge about food, you can start a blog to share that knowledge with the world.
Summarily you can start a blog about any topic (subject) that you have knowledge about and stand a chance of making money online and get paid through western Union. Don,t worry about how to make money from your topic or subject. I,m going to show you how to do that.
So what do you have sufficient knowledge about? Is it fashion, bible, football, gossip news, relationship advice, make up tips, hairstyles etc that should be the topic (niche) of your own blog.
Step 2. Choose a Blogging Platform.
A blogging platform is the website that is going to host your blog on their server and make it LIVE or accessible to the internet users ( so that anybody with internet access can be able to visit and read the articles on your blog). Those blogging platforms also provide free web address, web design templates and a user friendly environment that makes it possible for people with little or no knowledge about web designing (how the web works) to be able to create a blog, write and publish articles on their blogs.
Nowadays, there are many blogging platforms that will enable you to start a blog for free but the 3 most popular and also the best free blogging platforms are
Of the 3 popular free blogging platforms mentioned above, blogger is the most popular free blogging platform and the blogging platform that you are going to use to create your own blog. Incase you haven,t heard, Linda Ikeji,s blog is powered (hosted) by Blogger. Put simply, Linda Ikeji’s blog was created at Blogger (blogger.com) for free. So you will also create a similar blog for free at Blogger (blogger.com).
One of the reasons why Blogger (blogger.com) is the most popular and also the best free blogging platform is because the Blogger platform, makes it possible for bloggers to monetize their blogs through the Google adsense advertisement partnership program.
For those of you who don,t know, Google adsense is the main source of income of almost every blogger and website owner. Bloggers make money online from their blogs by displaying the Google adsense advertisements on their blogs.
I know you may likely want to ask; what is Google Adsense or how does it work?. When we get to the topic about how to make money from a blog, you are going to understand what the Google adsense program is all about and how to make money from your own blog through Google Adsense. Let’s create our blog first before we can start thinking of making money.
Step 3. Choose a nice name for your Blog (yourblogname.blogspot.com).
After you have choosen a good topic (subject) to blog about, you will also need to choose a very nice name for your blog. You are free to use your name as the name of your blog or you can give your blog any name (as long as the name is still available or not yet in use by another person).
It should be noted that when you create a free blog at the Blogger platform, the web address (domain name) of your blog will have the .blogspot.comextension i.e. yourblogname.blogspot.com. I,m very sure you must have visited many blogs with the .blogspot.com web address. Those blogs are powered(hosted) by Blogger.
The .blogspot.com web address is a free web address that will be provided to you by Blogger to enable people to visit your blog. Anybody who wants to visit your blog will have to type yourblogname.blogspot.com in to their web browser.
But if you don,t like that free web address (yourblogname.blogspot.com) provided by blogger, you can register a custom domain name (web address) for your blog. It will cost you just $12 to register a custom domain name (a web address without the .blogspot.comextension) for your own blog.
At the end of this article, i,m going to show you how to register a custom web address like yourblogname.com so that your blog can look professional instead of a using the free .blogspot.com web address; which makes your blog to look like that of the amateur bloggers.

Like i told you before, Google adwords is a pay per click advertisement service i.e. google charges its adwords advertisers per a click on their ads. The cost per click of an ad varies from 1 cent to $60.
