Blogs are one of the most popular mediums for making money online. But before making money with a blog you should start one. To start you need to determine what your subject of passion is. I mean writing a blog is not easy, and you have to write at least one-two articles a day (if not more), in order to keep your readers interested and coming back every day for more. The number of visitors to your site determine your site’s traffic and bigger numbers constitute to larger amounts from your monetization sources. So the first thing to decide is what your Niche is.

I have wasted a lot of time researching the Niches to find out what are the most profitable topics for blogging and now, to save your time I am going to give you a list of the Niches that you will benefit the most from. (Not necessarily in this order)

  • Entertainment
  • Fashion
  • Weight Loss
  • Quit Smoking
  • Credit and Credit Repair
  • Weight Loss and Building Muscles
  • Running a Home Business
  • Training Pets
  • Learning Techniques such as Memory, Speed Reading
  • Learning a Language
  • Relationships and Divorce
  • Gaming eg. Runescape, World of Warcraft

If the topic that you had in mind (your passion) is not in this list, don’t be disappointed. It can most likely be classified as a sub category (or can become one) of these Niches. You still can write about your favorite topic, just optimize your blog to appear in search results for one of these top level categories as well.

To start a blog you will need a Domain Name. A domain name is the web address of your site. They usually look like this: http://www.example.com or this http://example.com. The “http” in the beginning of the domain name stands for  Hypertext Transfer (or Transport) Protocol and the “www” is an abbreviation of World Wide Web. The name that you need to choose should represent the main theme of your blog as well as be easy to remember and appealing to your audience. I usually suggest getting couple of domains: one for branding, and another for search engines. For example if your blog name is Jenny’s Fashion Police than you should get a domain www.jennysfashionpolice.com for your readers or customers, and domains with the keywords that you want to be found in searches for, i.e.  www.latestfashiontrends.com and/or www.howtobeinfashion.com for search engines.

You also need a hosting for your blog. The hosting is the space on the web where your site is. You can get the cheapest hosting in the beginning and upgrade it to a more advanced one if needed later.

Even though there are a lot of templates and platforms for blogs, I recommend WordPress. It is a very convenient platform, can be customized with minimum programming skills and has a variety of useful plugins. You can learn everything about WordPress here. Once you install WordPress platform, you can choose template designs and start posting.

In order for your Blog to appear for certain search results on major search engines, you will need to do Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for certain keywords and key-phrases. I will discuss this and other relevant subjects in my future posts.

P.S. I haven’t included Sex in this list not because it doesn’t sell (it so does), but because it would be very hard to write your Blog about sex and convince Google or other ad networks, that it is not an adult site. (I will write about money making within adult niche in a separate category)
