Blogging is a money making source of profit and blogs are straightforward to line up and maintain. Imagine a life where you are paid to pen on stuff that has interest for you, when you need, wherever you are.

The simple suppleness of blogging makes it simple for you to just kick back, relax and go on a holiday if you feel like it. In this piece, we're going to take a look at the profitability of a blog and set up a blog of our own at no charge! Interested? Read on! First, we want to acquire a blog. There are a few options host a blog on your own domain or get a free blog. To start, let's chat about the free blogs.

You can get a free blog at www.blogger.com or the newer ( and better ) www.wordpress.com. If you're a techie, you've got to have heard about WordPress, a free blog engine that's tough and infinitely expandable. Blogger.com is basically owned by Google, so it is going to be noted on Google's radar quicker and you'll be indexed quicker. WordPress.com nonetheless, is a comparatively new option so I haven't any comparison on the velocity of getting indexed by search websites. But WordPress is better in that it has more advanced features like Track backs and Categories. You may manage your sidebar links better ( more about this later ). Get a free blog at either Blogger.com ( http://www.blogger.com / signup.g ) or WordPress ( http://wordpress.com / signup / ).

Then, become familiar by posting your first post on your blog and tinkering around with the options and templates. Here are one or two common blog-related words to help out :

One ) Permalink

Permalink stands for permanent link, which is a URL ( uniform resource locator ) that leads to an individual post that you make in your blog.

Two ) Trackback

When you post about somebody else's blog post some place else, your post will show up in their trackback section. This feature nonetheless, isn't available with a Blogger.com account.

Three ) Pinging

Blogging looks to be coupled with pinging nearly each time either one is discussed these days. Pinging is really the action where a certain aggregator is told whenever your blog is updated, so the aggregator may show the most recent post of your blog on their internet site. This is a helpful way to gaining traffic, which we shall debate later on. For the moment, I shall leave you checking out your new blog and the features that come included with it. In the following articles, we shall talk about the some ways we will gain profit from a blog alongside pointers on the best way to write posts that keep visitors fixed and keep coming back for more!
