How to Start a Successful Blog When You Are at College

SEMrush

Starting a successful blog while you are still at college is a great idea since you can have enough time to grow your audience, perfect your content, and transform the blog from a hobby into a fully-fledged income source.

Furthermore, having a personal blog automatically means that you are your own employer and content manager; you get to decide on your schedule, vacations, and “office location”

Now, starting a successful blog might sound overwhelming because of just how much work you need to put in. However, if you approach your blog step by step, the process will be smooth and natural. Here are some ideas that will give you a head start.

Come Up with a Niche

How to Start a Successful Blog When You Are at CollegeWhen considering a writing job (and having a blog is exactly that), it is important to settle on a niche for your future blog. You can go for lifestyle, traveling, everyday life, health, personal development, aesthetics, or basically any topic you feel passionate about.

With a blog, you will need to create regular content, both visual and verbal, so make sure you have a lot to share on the area you will settle for. In case you struggle with deciding on the niche, you can always do some research and read articles that will help you choose an area that will make a perfect fit for you. There are a lot of “how-to” articles with tips on the subject.

Make Sure Your Niche is Relevant

Before you start setting up your blog, you need to make sure that the niche you chose is actually relevant in the current market.

To get there, you need to conduct extensive research on the subject, check your potential competitors, or simply find a good essay writing service to do the research for you. As an option, you can also create a survey to see what it is people actually like reading about.

In any case, even if you choose a very competitive niche, you can still get your blog to be successful as long as you make sure your content is innovative and of high quality.

Decide on the Name

The name of your blog has to be unique, creative, and easy to memorize. Firstly, make sure that the name you choose for your blog and the domain name you get when setting up and registering the blog is the same.

Secondly, you need the name to be easy to remember for your readers to locate you with no effort. It’s also crucial that the names of all the social media pages you will create later on to promote your blog have the same name. That way, you will promote a single brand rather than confusing your audience with seemingly unrelated information channels.

Get Technical

Once you are done with brainstorming, and you have a clear idea of what it is your blog is going to be about and how it is going to look, you need to get your hands on the technical side of it.

To start a blog, you need to get a domain name, which you can either buy or choose for free on some platforms that gives you the option. If you go for a free domain, the name of the platform you use for the blog will be mentioned in your domain name, which is fine, but it’s not the best option.

It’s much better to purchase a domain name that will, on average, cost you about $50 per year, depending on the provider you choose.

Spread the Word

Once you have set up your blog, chosen a theme, and posted some content, it is time to spread the word and let people know about your unique channel. There are a lot of marketing options for you to consider: you can promote your blog via Facebook, Instagram, Google, Twitter, and other social media platforms.

You can pay someone to promote your blog (like get it mentioned on some other blog), which doesn’t cost much. But if you are not open to financial investments, it’s also possible to promote it free of charge, provided that you familiarize yourself with relevant marketing strategies.

Overall, creating your blog is an exciting experience that will give you a voice and a chance to share your vibe with a wide audience of readers. You will have multiple opportunities to discuss the topics you find most exciting and get feedback on your ideas.

It’s also a great option for those who wish to have a very flexible job when they finish college since blogs usually make a very solid source of income. In any case, make sure that passion is the main thing that leads you in this journey, and then your blog will definitely be a success!

To start a blog, there are 2 brooad steps

1/. before starting the blog
Plan, choose a niche, select a domain name, what will be the blog topic and content, how will you get it(buy or write) etc.

2/. the most important publish the blog.
here consistency is important, for a new blog it will not start making money in the first day, so you should be patient and be consistent. publish valuable content. try not to copy, but copy write
