We have explained about what is a blog and how to start one in our previous articles: Everything you Need to Know About Blogs and How To Get Started with your Blog Before you Do Content Writing. In this article, we will touch on how you can do content writing for your blog.
As you are probably aware, blogging is basically the process of posting content onto your blog. If you have already set up your blog/website, herein follows the various methods you can do to start posting content on your blog:
1) Write a list of 10 Cool Things
Find 10 things you find cool, beneficial or valuable about the theme of your website/blog. Then put up a general post about these 10 things and explain why you find them cool, beneficial or valuable. In fact from the 10 things, you can branch out and put up an individual post for each of the 10 things. If you are promoting your own or affiliate service or product related to those 10 things, then recommend to your readers to visit the page by putting a link back to that page at the end of your post.
2) Write Original Articles
Write original articles of your own about 500 words each on themes related to your niche. For example if your niche is about money, you can write articles about investment, savings, wealth creation and business. Then post the articles on your blog at regular intervals like once a week or month.
3) Write your Own Review or Commentary
Search the web for articles related to your blog or website theme. Then pick a few articles that interest you and write your own review or commentary about them on your blog. In addition, you can also write a review or commentary on any eCourses and products that you have gone through or used. You can write the post by giving a brief summary of the article/eCourse/product followed by why you liked or disliked it and whether you would recommend it to others.
4) Add a Video into a Blog Post
Go to a video site like YouTube and look for videos that you like. Then obtain the video code and put it in a new post on your blog. Also add some content before the video like a brief summary about it and highlight some exciting parts which your blog viewers should watch out for.
5) Convert an Article into a Video
In addition to just adding videos from video sites, you can make videos of your own and post it on your blog. Convert any of your text articles into a video with you narrating the points covered in the article or even a live video. Thereafter, post the video to a video site like YouTube and add a link in the video description to your blog/website. Finally, copy the video source code from Youtube and paste it into a new blog post.

How To Create your Blog
You can start to create your blog by registering a free blog account at either Blogger, or Wordpress. Then follow the instructions given and you will be on the way to quickly starting your blog. While the exact steps may vary, the basic steps to follow will usually be as follows:
1) Create an account
2) Give your blog a name
3) Choose a template for the outlook of your blog
Tips to Follow When Choosing a Blog Name
Blogs can be used for a myriad of reasons and purposes. These include but not limited to blog posts detailing your daily/weekly/monthly activities, writing about topics of interest, reviewing a movie, song or play that you have watched, providing valuable content for the masses and even promoting your own or affiliate products.
Depending on what you will be using your blog for, you should choose a blog name that clearly reflects and is more specific to the themes, content and nature of your blog . However, do check if the name has already been taken. If yes, modify the name a little or choose another variation of the name.
Incorporate Blog to your Website
Next, while not completely necessary but preferable, you can incorporate your blog to your website if you already have one. There are different ways to do so for Blogger and Wordpress, but it can usually be done during the blog registration process mentioned earlier. Just be sure to follow the exact instructions given on each respective site.
If you do not own a website, but would like to start one, register a domain at Namecheap, and get a web hosting account at InMotion Hosting.

Once you have created your blog and/or incorporate it to your website, the next crucial step is to start on the content writing and content marketing for your blog.
