Blogging Basics & Essentials Series

Once I realized I wanted to start a blog, instead of jumping into it right ahead, I researched for three straight days. I am usually someone who does his thorough research before getting into anything that needs financial investment. I was researching for the cheapest and at the same time the best option around for everything necessary to start a blog.

I will summarise that experience and the knowledge gained through that research in this series of posts.

We are going to cover the following areas.

  • Domain Name Service
  • Hosting
  • WordPress
  • Themes
  • Necessary Plugins
  • SEO Basics
  • Other important information

Essentially we will need

  • a domain name service to register your blog website with your preferred domain name
  • a hosting service to host your website in one of their servers.
  • a WordPress installation – most widely used one for blogs.
  • a Professional Looking Theme to be used as the theme for your blog.
  • some of the most important plugins that make blogging experience with WordPress easier.
  • knowledge of Search Engine Optimization
  • knowledge of legal constraints related to monetization, SEO, terms and conditions, privacy policy of the blog, etc.,

So, I will cover these aspects one after the other in this Blogging Basics & Essentials series. Watch out for my further posts.
