How To Get Started With Blogging
A blog is a web log that is an information or discussion site published on the Internet. Blog content generally provides information on a particular subject, serves as an online diary of the blogger, or functions as online advertising for a particular brand. Most blogs are interactive, meaning they allow visitors to leave comments helping the blogger to build social relations with its readers. Blogging is a great way to share your expertise on the World Wide Web.
You should plan your blog categories and add tags to make the content easier to find. Categories should include your main content descriptions. For example, a dog blog might include categories for health, grooming and safety. Each post that you write can be placed in a category for permanent storage. Tags are a way to find the posts that you write. A regular search will bring up all posts that has, for example, vaccines mentioned somewhere in it. Tags will only bring up those articles that directly relate to vaccines if you have used tags correctly. The tags that you apply to your posts should be used consistently in all other. For example, if you use vaccines as a tag and then use shots in your posts, your tags will not help with finding those articles. 
Posting Schedule:
Decide how often you plan to post on your blog. It is better to plan a realistic schedule, such as once a week to start, so that you do not get overwhelmed. It may be helpful to create a content calendar so that you know in advance what you will be posting about that week and on what day. This will help you keep track of what you want to write about and what you have already written. 
What To Blog About:
Write your articles. Generally, blogs are created to share someone’s expertise with their readers. Your blog content should be related to your niche and should be interesting to the reader. For example, you may want to answer questions that readers who do not know much about your niche might ask or give updates on issues or current trends that affect your niche. Your posts should be set up so that it engages the readers and provokes conversation so that you can engage with them. A good way to do this is to add a call to action at the end of your posts such as “what do you think” or “how does this information make you feel.”
Still Not Sure What To Blog About?:
For ideas on what to write, it would be a good idea visit other blogs in your niche to see posting and to set up Google alerts to notify you when there is news or postings related to your niche. The alerts may inspire you and give you help you find new content resources. Monitoring other bloggers in your field will help you stay on top of what they are talking about and keep up on the cutting edge of your niche. This can be done by subscribing to their blog feeds. You could also ask your followers what they would like to read about.
Promote Your Blog:
Promoting your blog is an important aspect of blogging. If no one can find it, no one will read it. Promote your posts on social media and comment on other blog sites to help drive traffic back to your blog. You could also write guest blogs for other blog sites and include a link back to your blog. Link building will also help with your SEO ranking. Setting up a Facebook and Twitter account with links to your blog is an excellent way to promote your blog. It would be wise to set up accounts using the same name as your domain name to help people find you easier.
Blogs are never instant successes. You will need to work at writing, posting and promoting to build your readership and grow your audience.
