To show the world our creativity, we need an opportunity to showcase our talent. An opportunity is anything that can show the masses what is inside of us. Today is the age of technology, we don't need to find an opportunity to showcase our talent. We can show our talent right from our home to the world and for this we even don't need anyone's help or favour.
If you are a singer, you can record your song. If you are a writer, write a story and post it in your blog and show the people your potential. Not only these, you will get to know many like minded people who will make you grow in your direction.
This article discusses the various benefits of having a Blog and how you can make money blogging.
A blog gives words to your thoughts in this digital era. You can publish anything from stories, poem, songs, videos to your life hacks on the web.
There are many free blogging platforms which allow people to create a blog. Out of many, this article will discuss about two world famous blogging platforms, viz., WordPress and Blogger.
WordPress gives that platform to everyone to create a blog free of cost and share your journey of life. You don't even have to pay a penny to maintain your blog. Which means, absolutely free!
The more important and awesome thing about WordPress is that you can create your blog with the help of your smartphone and you can manage everything from writing an article, changing the theme, posting photos, following other blogs, commenting on others blog posts right from your phone.
To create a blog in WordPress through the app-
1. Go to Google Play Store
2. Download and Install the WordPress app
3. Create Your Blog by your E-mail Id and a password and then you are ready to enjoy your free blogging experience.
Plus Points of WordPress:
>> WordPress is completely free.
>> Easy to understand for the beginners. >> Unlimited themes.
>> Their consumer support system is very good.
There is another free blogging platform offered by Google, that is Blogger. This one is also a free blogging platform and you can also post article with help of its smartphone app. But unlike WordPress, you can't create your blog with the help of this app. You have to create your blog in your PC and then you have to link your email id with the app. Another problem is that you should have a gmail account to create a blog in Blogger.
So you need to do the following steps to link your Blogger app to your Blog:
1. Download Blogger app from Google Play Store
2. Install it and start the app.
3. After touching the Blogger logo of the app (in order to start), it will open a "Add Account" box. Then select your mail account and enjoy your blogging experience.
One plus point that attracts people to create a blog in blogger is that they can monetise the free blog to earn money with it. Monetization means Google will show advertisement banners in the empty places in the blog and when a reader will click the banner, the owner earns money.
You can also post affiliate links in your articles i.e., advertising a product from Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal etc. and when a reader clicks that affiliate link and make a purchase, you will get commission.
N.B. WordPress don't allow its users to post affiliate link in their blog posts. If any one violate it, WordPress will delete that blog permanently.
Thus you can make a passive income out of blogging. If you can write quality contents then the number of readers will increase and your income will also increase. There are many peoples who are making money online and some of them even quit their 9-5 jobs to become a full time blogger.
I hope you now have a basic idea of what is blogging and how one can earn Money with blogging.
