Choose Blogging Platform
Got an idea on which you have to want to write an article?
Now choose the blogging platform that you want to use.
Most bloggers are using WordPress and I would suggest the same.
WordPress is best for beginners who really want to make a good blog. Some are using Blogger for quick posting and for a simple blog.
As we are talking about how to start a blog free. I am supposing that you don’t want to spend money on domain and hosting? Right?
WordPress allows you to start a free blog on their domain, here is an example of our site on WordPress, https://mfwref.wordpress.com.
Install and Set Up Your Theme
Many things depend on Theme like speed and SEO. Choosing the best theme is the most important part for bloggers.
There are many free themes available on the WordPress theme directory. On MoneyForWallet we are using the Divi theme by ElegantThemes.
After installing the theme set up your theme according to your need and install plugins. Plugins like social media plugins, contact form plugins, and other plugins.
You don’t need to spend on paid plugins if you don’t have money instead of that you can use free plugins.
Write & Publish Article
After setting up your site you can start publishing articles. But while writing an article you should take care of SEO. Also do not forget to add images in your article and proper headlines.
Try to write an article of a minimum of 500 words and if possible then write an article for more than 1000 to 1500 words.
After publishing an article you need to keep writing articles, at least one article a day, and keep SEO in your mind.
Once you publish an article check how it is performing through google analytics.
Don’t think about monetization in starting, first build your audience and then think about views or traffic.
