Things you need to start a blog

  • Laptop: In this blogging business you really need to get a laptop if you don’t have one yet. It requires laptop and I will tell you why shortly. The truth is that you can not take actual control of your site on your mobile phone even though you may have some blogspot and WordPress mobile apps they are only good for writing and posting contents. Trust me you can get a laptop of 35,000 Naira and if you don’t know where to get it comment below and i will point you to the trusted shop you can request for it and it will be delivered to you.
  • Internet access: You need big data subscription preferably Glo network. I like glo sub because they don’t cheat. If glo gives you 10 megabyte you can count on it its complete unlike other networks but the choice is yours. The main thing is to have data reserved for this business because laptops sucks data.
  • Money: You need money to run a blog and I will tell you how. Understand that this is a type of business and in business you will always need a startup capital. Blogging doesn’t need too much money for you to start. I will explain more on where the money is needed below.

How to open a blog without coding knowledge

To open a blog you need two things. 



Host and Domain name

  • Domain is the actual name you choose for your blog. For instance, lindaikejisblog.com, lailasblog .com, Fetchspecs.com, ogbongeblog.com, welldonenaija.com etc.
  • Host is the place where your blog contents will be stored. By this I mean all the post you make on your blog.

There are two types of host I want to discuss.

NB: The two notable platform I am sharing here is blogger.com and wordpress.com.

Free host and Paid host.

  • Free host just like the name sounds doesnt require you to pay any money once you have purchased your domain name. You can buy domain from  whogohost. I trust whogohost and you can purchase your domain through this link. blogspot.com is the popular free hosting you can try if that is the part you want to take but if you have money I advice you to use paid hosting and save yourself from too much stress involved in blogspot.
  • Paid host on the other hand is simply the one you purchase from a hosting company of your choice preferably namecheap hosting. This company is the one I am using and its affordable for both beginner bloggers and pro bloggers too. I like namecheap hosting company and their support team is superb.

Now you have purchased your host and domain the next thing is to launch your blog online. I will discuss this with focus on both blogger.com and wordpress.com.

Blogger.com: For you to start on blogger after buying your domain open a gmail account if you have not done that. If you have a gmail simply visit blogger.com and you will be prompted to log in using your gmail. Enter your username and password you use for your gmail and you will be redirected to blogger.com.

Now contact your domain seller and tell them the actual gmail account where you want them to point the domain you bought from them. For me, I usually give them my password and username for them to connect the domain and after that then I will simply change my password because of security issues.

WordPress: WordPress for me is the easiest and best. Why do I say this? Its built with facilities that will shorten this long processes with simple clicks on installation button. Once you buy your domain and also pay for a hosting package from namecheap the rest is all about clicking install. All you need to do is loggin to your hosting cpanel and install wordpress.

Before then make sure you have given your hosting company your domain name server and they will point it to your hosting and then all you need is start installing WordPress and required plugins you may need. You can ask me the plugins I use on my site in the comment box. Now lets assume you have opened your blog and now its tile to start making money online with your blog.

If you have followed all I said before now, especially the part I said you should make about 20 to 30 posts by yourself and not copying from other blogs then this task will be easy for you. But if you copied anything from any site online, just go and delete them and make fresh posts on any niche you choose before applying to Google Adsense. Now all you need to do for you to get quick approval is simple.
