How to make a professional blog

If your aim is to make money or develop a professional brand or help your existing business with a blog, you should go for a professional blog, not a free blog. 

When you open a professional blog, you have to get your blog registered with a Domain Name Registrar and place the blog in a server of a web hosting company. Then, for making money, you must take some extra steps. 

If you are very new to blogging, these terms might look too scary and confusing. Don't worry ✌😃. I have many a number of articles on all these aspects, and I keep updating them so that the advice remains useful. These are arranged in different sections linked below: 

  • Domain name and web hosting (tips on choosing a name for the blog, best web hosts, free web hosting, web hosting tips...)

  • Making money from blogging (Basic concepts and tips, paying subjects (=niches), how to make blogs in different niches, AdSense, affiliation, product reviews...)
