Step 1 – Come up with a Blog concept
Ask yourself what you really like, really worry about or wish to discuss with others. If you’re going to create something consistently and keep your website clean with new details, then you need to create something that stokes your interest or that shows everyday encounters. Try some of these concepts to get your creativity flowing:

Step 2 – Helping individuals is a good start(similar to this website, we help with online marketing)
Think about how you want to help individuals. While you want to notify individuals of your broader passions, you will need to focus your web page topics more directly, so that it has an apparent purpose. Here are some ideas of methods that your web page can connect with your intended visitor:

Determining your market will provide you with the information that differentiates it from your opponents.
Step 4 – Name your Blog
Think carefully about naming your blog as this will determine the type of audience. Brainstorm a number of ideas before you jump right in to it. Also consider other brand names before you decide, if you select a name that is already well known then it may be impossible for you to be a successful blog or website.
