Now based on this list of bloggers, I would suggest you start your blog on WIX. If you are thinking this post is not for you and you cannot write or create a blog, then this post will change your life for sure.
Step 1: Identify the Area of interest
Think of your area of interest, it could be anything like sports, travelling, music, Bollywood, dance, technology, etc. If you are interested in any area then you can start blogging in that area. Your interest will push you to write better and more articles in future. If you do not know what do you like then you are not alone. A few years back, me too was in the same situation. But I took up the challenge and started writing on Software Testing and Digital Marketing. I am a working professional and I know a lot about it. So, I decided to write on Software testing. You can also select the topic on which are working now and share the knowledge through blogging if you do not have any knowledge of any other area.
Step 2: Select Domain for your Blog
A domain is our blog address on the worldwide web. Readers will know you by the name of your blog domain name. You will be known as the author of the blog domain. But while selecting a domain, you should consider only domain which is ending with “.com”. In technical term “.com” is called a Top-Level Domain.
While Booking Domain Online you should consider a few points listed below
- Length of a domain name should not be more than 10 alphabets.
- Top-level domain should be “.com”
- Easy to spell and pronounce
- Should be registered for at least 5 years. If financially it is not suitable options for you then a minimum registration period should be 3 years.
If you want to understand what website domain and how to select the best suitable domain please refer our blog post What is a Domain name in a website?
Step 3: Select Hosting
Hosting is like a space on the internet, where you will place your blog. Hosting and domain go hand in hand. So, I would suggest you book a hosting from the same provider where you have booked the domain. There are some points you should remember while booking hosting like
- Book high-speed hosting
- Minimum 1 GB should be your space.
- Shared type of hosting is good enough for new bloggers. Don’t go with private hosting
- A hosting provider should be reputed. Meaning, they should not host any adult or gambling site.
- Downtime of hosting provider should be as minimum as possible

The template is like a pre-designed blog. So you don’t need to write any code to develop a user-friendly blog. Everything is already designed and developed. You just need to select from the set of best WIX template for the website/blog. You would be responsible only for the content which you will write in your blog. Rest everything will be taken care of by the WIX. If you have a Facebook account? Believe me, creating a blog on WIX is as simple as creating an account on Facebook.
Step 5: Writing Content
Till now we have seen about domain and hosting and template. Its time to start writing the content. Now you must be thinking of what to write? I would suggest writing a small blog post of length 400 to 500 words. When you start writing, your skills will get improve day by day.
