    Harshh,

    Not sure if you need help with the technical aspects of setting up a blog or what to write about? In general you will need a platform to build your blog on. Popular ones include Wordpress, Blogger, Joomla, and drupal. You will want to decide whether or not it is to be self-hosted. Then you will want to add content to it on a regular basis.

    Here is a very basic step by step,

    Hope that helps you,

    Hi,

    Pick the niche that you are good in, setup a blog (wordpress will be good), write some content, do seo or hire someone, put ads on your site and make money. That's one way to make some cash.

    wow... good luck to you! Its a hard world out there... i would start by reading up on the different keywords, urls and imbedded quotes that are ideal to use... also check out back tracking and relinking... and above all make sure the stuff your writing about is interesting and easy to navigate!

    I say do you research first, basics like hosting, some html, latest Google updates etc and learn basic SEO as well, you will need to learn before you can do blogging.

    When you discuss blogging, you are talking about installing a blog platform such as wordpress on your hosted site and NOT a free wordpress blog, am I correct?

    Check out this pretty detailed guide on how to start a blog.

    It covers the very basics to the higher-end things like affiliate marketing and promotion.

    I started by simply:
    going to go daddy buying a domain
    Getting a hostgator account
    changing over name server
    using fantastico deluxe added on word press
    mucked around with it testing various things
    looked through the plugins for some cool stuff.

    Harshh,

    It's been a few days now, how are you doing? Decide on your niche, platform and type of content you will be developing?

    While you don't want to over think starting a blog, you do have to determine whether what you are doing will create success or lot's of frustration... With that said, i thought it might be good to lay out for you a few tips about blogging. These are my experience and so, they may not be yours, but for what it is worth, I truly hope you appreciate them.

    Tip #1 Blogging is not passive income, it is active income, so make sure you understand that before you start
    Tip #2 Blogging is not about you, but about your readers, so you have to determine this - What do your readers want?
    Tip #3 If you know #2, then do what they want and do it in such a way that they will be impressed by it.
    Tip #4 Network with those in the same blogging niche - This will create goodwill and good intent for you and that is important when working with others.
    Tip #5 Give away before you take - It's second to networking, but make sure you give away in exchange for something that is of value to you - email addresses! contact data, etc.
    Tip #6 Plan for it to take longer than you hope - Unfortunately we all start businesses with an idealistic mindset... Sorry, I should say many of us, because all of us would not be accurate... But if you are like me, then you probably think you will be a success over night... It takes time and sorry, that's something you have to live with :)
    Tip #7 Have fun! If you are having fun, then your readers will
    Tip #8 Probably should have started with this, but don't think you have to produce 100s of pieces of content a month to create something amazing. Pat Flynn at smart passive income actually only produces 8 - 11 blog posts a month and he has something like 50,000 subscribers. What he does have is related to Tip #9
    Tip #9 You better produce something of value and high quality, because people will not come back.
    Tip #10 Develop a nice looking website so that like #9, people will want to come back because of the well done layout and design.

    Whoa!!! 10 tips and man that sounds like work! Yep, blogging is NOT passive income, but the rewards, over time, can be more than you ever hoped or dreamed.... I'm not their yet, but some day soon, I will.

    Hope this helped and again, keep us posted... 5 days in, you have so much ahead of you!
