“It is better not to blog, than to blog and give up on your blog”

The Reason why you should give a Second Thought about Blogging before Creating your own Blog

  • Blogging is not something you just go into maybe because others are blogging or most of your friends are blogging and you just want to blog too….. NO!
  • You shouldn’t just create a blog because you just want to make money out of it overnight or maybe you are thinking that blogging is like a quick money making machine or something…….
  • Even it seems like your blog is going down or something, just remember that you are not giving up because when you start blogging YOU MUST experience it too….

This reason why I am giving you this reasons is not because I don’t want you to be a blogger or I’m trying to discourage you from blogging but it is because you should know the reason why you are a blogger and why you should blog.

Below are what I will be explaining or telling you about in this article.

There is also an article that I will highly recommend you to read, it’s an article from one of my best blog, “how to promote your blog post”, you will really learn a lot from it.

Different blogging platforms

We have different ways of creating a free blog, but my most recommended platform or host is WordPress. If you are not interested in creating a free blog, you can check out my post on how to create a blog.

Why is WordPress the best blogging platform

You might wondering why I choose WordPress, the reason why I choose WordPress is because:

  • It is one of the biggest and most used platform in the world,
  • It has about 5,000 plus themes and plugins of which must of them are free,
  • They are very easy to setup and they are flexible,
  • They have 24/7 supports just in case you get stuck,
  • WordPress powers over 91% of all blogs on the web and has 82 million active users all over the world. Imagine that!!
  • And the last but not the list, the reason why I recommend WordPress for you is because this very blog you are seeing and you are reading this article from is a free blog!! isn’t that shocking?

But before we go into how to create your WordPress.com, which you can create within some minutes, let’s look at the disadvantages of a WordPress.com blog. Well, you know that anything that has advantages has a disadvantage.

Disadvantages of creating a free blog with WordPress

  • Limited themes
  • Limited spaces. WordPress.com will only give you 3GB space for your blog post, media, etc
  • You can’t install plugins
  • You will have a sub-domain name like this: yourblogname.wordpress.com but you can always remove it before and after creating a blog with WordPress by buying a domain name or hosting your blog
  • Limited features

Well you shouldn’t be sad because of this limitations, you can always change it later by hosting your blog, don’t know how to host a blog? You can check out my post on how to create a blog.

The Reason why WordPress.org is better than WordPress.com (free blog)

WordPress. Com Vs WordPress. Org

There are two different ways of creating a blog with WordPress. They are:

  • WordPress.org and
  • WordPress.com

The reason why I said that WordPress.org is better than WordPress.com is because

  • WordPress.org gives you full access over your blog or website but WordPress.com doesn’t
  • WordPress.org allows you to add paid or free plugins and themes to your blog but WordPress.com doesn’t.
  • With WordPress.org you can run your own ads on your blog but WordPress.com won’t allow you run your own ads.

These are the few reasons why people prefer using WordPress.org rather than using WordPress.com. You can only use WordPress.org only if your blog is hosted. If you want to know more about WordPress.org, please read my article on how to create a blog

Advantages of WordPress.com (free blog)

Since I have been talking about the disadvantages of WordPress.com and the advantages of WordPress.org but now let’s look at the advantages of WordPress.com, remember anything that has disadvantages has an advantage. Below are the advantages of WordPress.com:

  • It allows you to create a free blog.
  • It has free 3GB space.
  • You don’t have to worry about updates or backup, WordPress will take care of it
  • It has 24/7 support or assistance.
  • You run affiliate marketing on your site.
  • It is Freee!!!

Is WordPress.com really free?

WordPress really free

Well if you were to ask me that questions, my answer will be YES! WordPress.com is totally free, 100% free.

Actually WordPress.com has some themes, plugins and hosting plans which you must pay for before getting them but it’s not actually a MUST that you must purchase them, you only buy them because you like them and because you would love to have them in your blog. But note that you can’t buy themes with a free blog, you must host your blog or upgrade your WordPress hosting plan.

Things to consider before creating a blog

  • Choosing your domain name
  • Choosing your themes
  • Pick your blog niche

Choosing your domain name

Domain name

Before jumping into the main topic for today I want to give you some tips on the choosing the right domain name before creating your blog. Domain names really matters a lot, a domain name tells your viewers or visitors the type of blog niche you are blogging about and also the name of your web address.

Don’t know what a domain name is?

A domain name is your blog’s URL i.e. your blog or website name. e.g. www.yourblogname.com.

These are some tips you need to follow when choosing a domain name:

  • You must choose a name that describes your blog niche.
  • Pick a good domain name extension. A domain name extension are your .com, .net, .ng. etc.

If you are opening a blog the best and most recommended domain name extension are .com and .net.

  • Choose a name that sounds good.
  • Make sure your domain name is not too long so that visitors can be able to type your url correctly.
  • Avoid using columns, commas, numbers, question marks or punctuation marks in your site name address.
  • And lastly do not use somebody’s address or use an address that is very similar to somebody’s own.

Choosing your themes

Blog themes

WordPress has millions of themes which most they are free but you should note that does free ones have limited features. But with the paid themes you can have unlimited access to it.

Note: you cannot get a paid theme with a free blog, you have to host it or upgrade your WordPress plan to get access to those paid themes.

WordPress.com (Free blog) like I said has limited themes but I am going to give you my most recommended themes, which are: “Apostrophe and Publisher”. The theme I was actually using before on my WordPress. Com blog is Apostrophe. They are also many other beautiful themes in WordPress even more beautiful than the one I am using now but what you should be considering is that you should pick a theme that best describes your blog niche. You can’t choose a photography theme for a news site.

Picking your blog niche

101 blog niches

Like I said earlier a blog niche tells the type of blog you are blogging about. Choosing your blog niche is very simple, it’s all about blogging on what you love best or the most (passion). Note that they is no type of blog niche that will make you very rich, don’t expect any blog niche to make you rich. Do not say that they is a particular blog niche that makes people rich in no time, so I want to blog about that niche too, if you do, you will eventually find yourself failing or giving up because “you can’t give what you don’t know or have.” If you have interest in technology, why not blog on technology, the same goes to all niches too.

Now that we have known how to choose your domain name address, themes and blog niche, let’s now go into

If you want to know the reason why you should choose the .com domain name, you can check my article on how to create a blog.

The benefits are there; leverage social proof, get instant feedback, get closer to your audience, develop relationships and boost engagement.
Despite the benefits of blog comments, you need to seriously consider how they will fit into your overall blogging strategy.

If you want to take things to the next level, it’s important to remember that every tactic or marketing channel you implement on your blog needs to be

Removing elements that cause friction with your audience isn’t always easy, sometimes it requires design tweaks that not everyone can do – but if you can, it’s well worth doing if it fits with your overall blogging strategy.

But despite these positives, it’s worth considering how using a platform like this could impact how many comments you receive.
I’ve been a Disqus user myself for a long time and some feedback I’ve received showed a dislike for the platform so I’ll most likely remove it when I re-design my blog.

Godswill Omosowhofa

Well, I use WordPress platform, I guess it’s one of the best platform out there and it is very user friendly

My plan is to test how things go without Disqus, and you should too – testing is essential to find what works for you.
One of the problems with a lot of blog themes is that you have to scroll all of the way to the bottom of the comments to enter your comment.
