Considerations Before Blogging
Experts are making blogging business easier than ever before. Today there are online platforms that you can use without your knowledge of the coding system. But i want to suggest that you should not just rush any how to blogging, please! be sure of what to do.
Visit sites online and see the nature of what you want. See what others have developed and what you like. You can do a small paper work of designing your own site. Take note of the theme used.
Also determine both long time and short time usage of your site. I am sure it must be what you want to exist for a long time, so plan it well.
Consider the purpose of setting up your site. What do you intend using it for? This will go a long way to determine it’s contents and the theme to be used.
Determine the nature of the content to be used. What you are reading now is the content on passion blogger in learning from exciting stories. How will you get your own contents and will the source quickly dry out? You must find a way of finding the contents of your site and managing it. Your contents must be suitable for your readers. I want to recommend that you get most of your contents ready before starting your web development. But I can assure you that you can always make changes to your contents as required.
Determine weather somebody will develop your website for you or you will do it yourself. Doing it yourself have a lot of advantages: it will be easier to manage by you, it will reflect the work of your hand and more also you would have learn’t well enough to do another for yourself and to help others. You can only become a passion blogger if you do it and manage it yourself.
Consider who will host it for you. There are lots of considerations in hosting, among which are the followings.
- Will the host respond to your call as quickly as possible when you run into problem with them?
- Is the host unnecessarily exploitative?
