Like I said earlier, starting a blog isn’t so difficult. You don’t need to be a programmer or an expert in writing codes before you can start a blog. In fact, you can set up a blog within 24 hours.

6. Make money blogging. Choose from several options to monetize your blog.

Let’s get started!

Pick your topic(niche):

Blog Niche means areas or topics you wish to cover in your Niche. It should be based on what you’re good at or interested in. If you like to write about students, colleges and universities, stick to education niche.

Choose an area or target Audience. Example, Speedyminds Targets Young Persons and it is about Education and Career. Mixing topics is only good for a personal blog. What impact do you want to make and what problem do you want to solve?

Common Blog Niche:
