Faithful Readers

Are you considering launching a blog? If yes, you should learn a few things about blogging first. Go over this article to learn more about launching a successful blog.

Banner Ads

Start by defining the topic of your blog. If you are not sure what you want to write about, get to know the audience you want to target better. You should also look at other blogs to determine what other bloggers are writing about. It is best to define your topic in detail before launching your blog so you do not find yourself creating content that will not interest your audience. Pick a topic you know a lot about or take the time to study your topic before launching your blog.

Blogger

Choose a quality blogging platform. There are plenty of platforms you can use to create a blog, but it is best to choose one with a strong reputation and years of experience. Do some research and Bloggingread reviews to figure out which platform will be best for your blog. If the audience you want to target is likely to use a certain blogging platform, make sure you use this same platform. Do not hesitate to test different sites until you find one you like.

Business Purposes

Writing quality content is the best way to launch a successful blog. Do not expect to get a lot of faithful readers if your articles are not valuable or not well-written. Always take the time to proofread your content and look for ways to improve your writing. If you are not comfortable with writing or find that your visitors are not likely to read through long articles, find other ways to present your content. You could, for instance, create videos or a Podcast.

Golden Opportunity

Add more content to your blog. You should have at least one weekly update and try updating your blog two or three times a week once you start getting more traffic. Adding more content to your blog on a regular basis will encourage your readers to come back often and will also give you the opportunity to share more back-links to your content. Make sure you give your readers the possibility to subscribe to your updates, for instance, by using social media or by creating a newsletter.

High Interest

Share links to your blog. You should create an RSS feed and sign up for different social networks your readers are likely to use. Post links to your latest articles or write very short updates to interact with your audience. Keeping your readers engaged and sharing content with them on a regular basis will help you get a larger audience. Use article directories, free online encyclopedias, message boards and online publications to share links to your blog.

Link Relationship

Blogging is fun and can help you promote your brand or share your passion with your readers. You can launch your own blog and become a successful blogger by applying the tips you just read but keep in mind that you will have to invest a lot of time and efforts into this project.

    How Do I Copyright Or Trademark Something? I have a username with my name that I’ve been using for over 6 years. At first it was personal but it grew into all my social media accounts and over the last few years I’ve used it as a username on a popular blogging platform. I’ve turned the blog into more of lifestyle/ style blog and since i’ve been collaborating more with business that have reached out to me, I’d like to take it to the next level, legally.

    The exact username I use is being used by a woman who owns her own brands of baby things. I think it’s trademarked. Does that mean I need to change my name? I already have another name I’ve used as a back up for a few years, but it would be a pain to make the switch.
    I tried to find out when she started using it/made the site, but i can’t find any records. If you google the name, her site is first, but after that it’s all me and my sites. as far as i know google puts results in order of popularity. after the first page it’s a mix of both

    • You cannot copyright names. End of that item. Quick tutorial on trademarks:

      Trademarks accrue rights according to the laws where they are used. For instance, in the US, Canada and UK (among others), you automatically get a protectable trademark right by simply being the first to use a distinctive brand on or in association with particular goods or services. In most other countries you would need to register it to obtain ANY rights. In the US you can optionally register a brand in one or more states or in the federal USPTO, depending upon where your marketing channels are. Registration often brings along additional powers, not to mention “proof” of priority date. For instance, a federal registration allows you to use (R) on the brand and to pre-empt others who LATER start to use a similar brand anywhere in the USA where you are already doing business.

      The owners of a brand has the right to prevent others from attempting to use the same or similar brand in ways that would create a “likelihood of confusion” among customers, i.e, in related goods or services. If your services have NOTHING to do with “baby things”, for example, there is no trademark law that would prevent you from using (or even registering) the identical brand on your things. One example of this is the famous “MCDONALDS” brand restaurant and related services, which was federally registered well after “MCDONALDS” brand valve castings and refrigeration equipment. There is essentially no overlap, so their respective customers would NEVER wonder whether their refrigerator coil shipment comes with a clown or golden arches.

      Bottom line, you might peacefully co-exist forever, if there is no cause for competitive concerns. If things ever start to creep into each others’ realms, one of you could simply “disclaim” affiliation with the other (“JJ’s Blogs is not affiliated with JJ’s Togs”, which can be found here…”). You could also negotiate a “concurrent use agreement”, if the USPTO refuses to register something that is “too close for comfort” and get the second registration approved.

      Your own trademark attorney can advise you on your particular circumstances and the applicable laws in your jurisdiction.

    Which Are The Free Blogging Platforms Allowing Affiliate Links? I’d like to build some websites on free platforms where I’d like to promote relevant affiliate products. I need a good list of free blogging platforms and free website building sites which let me to use affiliate links.

    • Google’s Blogger.com seems fairly tolerant of content, others like WordPress.com has a fee for commercial use.
      You may well find that the labor investment needed to get enough traffic to actually get sales, makes the monthly cost of a paid host look trivial. Most of the $8/mo “unlimited” shared hosts allow any number of sites on one account.

    Im Looking For A Blogging Platform I Can Take The Codes And Plug Onto My Existing Site (through Dreamweaver? Im building my site through Dreamweaver. I have a bunch of tablets and whatnot, I would like to include a blog into it. I do not want some sort of discrepancy in the layout (seeing as I cant put my own layout onto lets say Blogger or WordPress).
    Is there a platform offering me the opportunity to attach its scripts onto my site?

    • WordPress is “open source”, so you can put your code into it, or you can put it into your code.

      If you don’t want something like that you’ll just have to write blog code. There’s no “drop it into my code and it’ll work” “blogging platform”. Any code you get is going to be a starting point – you’re still going to have to modify a lot of code and write a lot of your own code.

      Dreamweaver? That’s about the last program I’d use to write something like this. Even if I *were* foolish enough to throw that much money away on a program that no one needs.

    Good (free) Blogging Platform? My friend and I want to share a blog. It will likely be set to private for now anyway. Do people still blog? I know a lot of people use microblogging platforms like Tumblr these days, but are there still any other good/popular blogging platforms that anyone would recommend? (I don’t even know if you can set Tumblr to private.)

    • Yea. You can set Tumblr on private and even comes with a password lock.

      Others:
      Blogspot.
      Wordpress.

      I didn’t understand why you want to know about 50 blogging platforms, as the thin line between blogging platforms and social networks and anything else is quickly fading. Now anywhere people converge and communicate; they blog.

      If being a beginner to blogging your idea is to decide which blogging platform you should use; so that you don’t have to be disappointed with your platform choice in future; Then let I assure you, Blogger.com, a blogging platform by Google is by far the best.

      Blogger.com is the best platform for all bloggers, irrespective of their tech expertise. In addition, another benefit of using blogger is that you get traffic from Google search as well.

      Google’s blogger.com is a pretty versatile blogging platform. The url format of your new blog will be xyz.blogspot.com, where xyz represents your name. But if you want to make the url look xyz.com, blogger allows you to do that as well. You can tweak the looks of your blog, from 1 percent to 100 percent and add much functionality to it as well.

      For beginner, getting started is quite easy too, just three steps:

      Create an account (if you have an existing gmail account, then you can use that too)
      Name your blog
      Choose a template

      For the time being you just create a new blogger blog and get started. All the best for your blogging journey ahead.
