In our opinion, people don't come to your site because of look and design. They come to you because of your content. So, if you are new, and planing to start your blog, you should concentrate on your content instead of design and functions.

Here are basic steps to start a blog

1. Select Your Topic

3  Setup Your blog

1. Select Your Topic:

This is the most important step. You must determine the goal of your blog. If you’re already part of an organization, company or product, this step will be easy for you. Your blog should be related to the organization, product or services. But, if you are an individual, you have the flexibility to choose topics.

1. Enjoy Your Topic : The first and most important. Blog about something that you enjoy. Don't go with the trend. Just select the topic which you enjoy. If you will enjoy, you readers will enjoy too. And you can make your blog more interesting because you're enjoying it.
2. Read Other Blogs And make your own identity: If you have chosen a blog topic to write, you're probably almost not the first one who thought about that topic. That topic may have been written by many other bloggers. You don't need to worry about that, but ask yourself "Can you write better than existing blogs."

This is the most important step for your first impression on your readers. A new reader, who don't know about the goal of your blog, will try to figure-out the goal with the name. And your good name can also help you to gain traffic.
1. Select.Com instead of any other extension. It really doesn't matter if you have quality content. We choose '. in' because we liked it.
2. Choose a name which should be easy to spell, and make it shorter. Which is easy to remember. So, you should choose a name which can directly refer your goal in short form.
3. Don’t include hyphens, numbers( 1,2,3... ). And, if you are in confusion, choose your name.

:- :- You can pick a domain name from anywhere, or if you want, you can buy a domain name directly from your blogger dashboard, just go to Blogger -> setting -> basic -> Blog Address section.

Note: You will get a free sub-domain name and you can change it, without paying extra money like many other platforms.
