What should you do for professional blogging?

When you make a personal or hobby blog, your purpose is to keep a record of things that you like and share with others. You may also not focus the blog on a particular subject. Most personal blogs are on free blogging platforms such as Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr or Medium.

On the other hand, if your aim is to make money or to promote your brand through blogging or use the blog to support an existing business, you must do blogging in a professional way. For that, you need to 

  • design the blog (and then maintain it) using a content management system
  • host the blog on a web hosting server
  • buy a domain name for the blog
  • work hard to promote the blog and optimize its posts for search 

If money making is the goal, you must also take these actions:

  • monetize the blog (= place ads on the blog or use other means to make money from the blog)
  • install e-commerce system on the blog (if you sell a product or service through the blog)
