-Choose platform. Blogger, wordpress, other? - Decide what you're going to write on. - Do keyword research and get to know SEO, if you know both you'll see that writing about money making sites is pointless: too much competition, so don't do that. Failing to do that means your blog is one waste of time. - Are you going to monetize it? How?

I have been using wordpress, but blogger also is very good. I have to say that my word press blog is getting a lot of traffic as well, due to the fact that my friends enjoy reading what I like to write. Maybe that would be a good start for you, also if you do it make sure to visit other peoples blogs and have track backs. This will give you much more traffic.

There are many websites which allow you to start your own blog but the most famous and most used are blogger.com and wordpress.com. Both of them allow you to start your blog for free. I personally have a blog on blogger.com which I started 4 months back. I have not used wordpress yet.

FIRSLTY, i suggest not to register at blogspot or wordpress but in weebly. if you do in both, you;ll see how much customizable weebly is. previously i used to have 2 blogs each in blogger and wordpress respectively. but i always faced problems with them. weebly is the best place to create a free website as well as a blog. to start, head over to www.weebly.com

Do some research first, that is what you need to do to get started, once you have found your topic, do a bit of research on how to create an attractive site. Once you get the basics, then it is about how much time and dedication you have.

In internet, we can find different sites which offer websites for free. They are blogger.com,wordpress,yola.com I prefer yola.com because in this site we can find more templates. Yola site is very easy to create a website without any html knowledge.
