Remember to pick a theme and stick with it

It’s easy to have a lot to talk about when you’re starting a blog, but it’s ultimately a good idea to find a theme and stick with it. If you have too much to talk about then you might find that your audience doesn’t stick to your blog and doesn’t come back to read it in the future. The exception here is if you can really add a touch of personality to each of your posts to make it more interesting. However, it’s much easier to create content and establish an audience when you’re focusing on a single subject such as starting a food blog or talking about parenting.

Pick a suitable host for your blog

You’ll also need to pick a suitable host for your blog. For instance, you might think that WordPress’s free hosting options don’t really work for you, or you might be interested in spending a bit of money to get a better host. Your host is essentially what keeps your website alive and accessible, so it needs to be a good option or else you might encounter downtimes and other issues that will make it hard for you to keep your website up.

Don’t forget about the backend

Depending on how you host your blog, you’ll want to learn how to use the backend. This means the content management system, the technical aspects such as the design, and even optimising areas such as your image sizes so that pages load faster. You can get more advanced with these concepts, such as deciding between headless vs decoupled CMS or creating a unique theme to go with your blog. The backend of your blog can get fairly complicated, so make sure you try to grasp it as early as possible and learn new things as you go.

Keep in mind that you can’t just use any photos

It’s common to put images in blog posts because it helps to break up the text to make it easier to read. It’s also a good idea to attach images that are related to the content. However, keep in mind that you can’t just use any image. The image must be free for commercial use and you need to be considerate about other people’s work. Make sure you use royalty-free images or images that are available under the creative commons license.

Do you plan to monetise your blog?

You could try and learn how to monetise a blog if you’re interested in making a living from it. However, keep in mind that there are some limitations and you’ll need to have a fairly large audience if you actually want to make money from anything. This is usually done through sponsorships, ads, and even affiliate marketing.
