Now, if this subject is one that you have a good amount of knowledge about and is an area of interest to lots of people (find out by going to Google's keyword external tool and entering the keyword or phrase-over 15,000 searches/month minimum is a good area of interest), then you've found your niche (pronounced neesh).

  • Blog Platform

Do you want a free or paid blog? Decide soon, because you have a group of hungry people waiting for information on their favorite subject from a fresh source-why can't it be you?

A free blog is hosted for free by it's host, like blogspot and wordpress. They own the blog that you start with them, so if you violate any of their rules, then they can shut you down for whatever reason. Be careful avout what you write!

A paid blog is hosted by a host you select and pay, usually monthly. It's not too expensive, usually around $10/month. However, you've got the freedom to put what you want on it, including different types of content, such as videos, podcasts along with articles.

  • Write Often

Google, the search engine king, will list your blog and make it easier to find if you submit posts at least 2-3 times a week.

Write articles, post videos or audio podcasts to your blog on a regular basis in order to get repeat visitors who can develop a loyal following and refer it to others, thereby growing the number of daily visitors to your blog.

  • Stay Current

  • Answer Comments
