What is Blogger

Why Blogger is the Best for Starting Your Blog
If you are reading this article till now, it means that you are a beginner and you aren’t familiar with the concept of blogging. Although WordPress is the top blogging platform of the world, but dealing with WordPress and self hosting is not only a challenging task, but it requires investment also. So I am considering Blogger better than WordPress and guiding you to start your blog on Blogger which is both priceless and easy to manage.
Additionally, Blogger allows you to monetize your blog through AdSense or any other source which isn’t appreciated by most of the other free services. It has been seen that Blogger blogs are easily accepted in AdSense program which you will need later for monetizing your blog.
Points to be noted before starting your blog
Bloggers mostly fail when they start their blog without any proper planning and later, they conclude that blogging can’t earn them a living. But if you follow below rules before starting your blog, I guarantee your success and your blog will start generating money after a short span of time.
-Never start your blog on a random topic. Analyze your interests and strengths first and then start your blog. People search the Internet for quality information and they will read your blog only if it satisfies their needs
-Never start your blog on highly competitive niches/topics. If the topic of your interest is already discussed by a lot of sites, then topic is surely broken and you can’t get success with it easily, so find any other topic which hasn’t gotten much competitive
-Learn basics of SEO before starting your blog and keep learning it. Without learning SEO and practicing it over your blog, it is similar to your personal diary. You write in it but no one knows what you are writing
-Expand your social circle. Share your blog content on social networks and build a circle of fans. This will help you in getting your blog recognized quickly
These rules are extremely important for success of any blog. If you have understood these rules, you can now proceed to create your blog.
