Project "How to make money as a blogger"
June 21, 2016 4:47am CST
I'm really new in this so I tried to make a research about blogging. Most of the pages were talking about having a theme for your blog which is something I don't understand. I always thought that being a blogger is about different discussions. From what you did today to which is better amd or intel. But the patterns are there. Most people write about a specific topic. I personally find that a little tiring to read the same things over and over again.

For starters.... what do you like? If you like music, you can post news about your favourite band. Or you could go for arts and handicrafts. You can make how-to guides about origami or make a video of you painting. It's best if you start with one thing than posting about a wide range of genres. If someone searches for your "theme" (arts, for example) then your website will show in the list. When you've had enough visitors, then you can add something else in to the mix. Just make sure that it's related to whatever is already on your blog.

@Valantis If it's on mylot, I think it'll be alright if you checked other discussions too. You get paid here if your comment (even on others') is commented on, too. But if you want to make a website and then blog, then the advice I and the others that you have read about would be good. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your interacting experience here.

If you have your own domain or sub-domain of course you have to stick with topics related to your domain. If your website is i.e. you should only write travel tips. If your website/blog name is i.e. www.exoticfoods.blogspot.com you should only write about exotic foods. Now if you do not own a domain or sub-domain and want to earn thru blogging about any subject, you can join paying sites like bitLanders, etc.

Crazy as it is a blog can even be about how to write blogs. Blog challenges do include repeating the same material. I suppose if intel brings out a new chip or someone blogs about their new computer they are making, its still readable.

The way i see it im guessing its something similar to making youtube videos.. you need something that people would know you for so it should be something you love or mostly concerned or passionate about after all you write to spread the word or let other people who what you feel or think and to get people to care about it right? You need to atleast build a community or gather a group of people to read or watch your stuffs then and only then you can write about other things.. but as far as i know succesful bloggers have their own thing.. like gaming.. food... or make-up even politics etc. They all have 1 thing in common tho.. they focus on that certain topic.

@Valentis Call your blog "Melange" or "Medley" or "Collage" or anything that means assortment.That way you'll be sticking to the blog's theme and still be writing different things. Having said that , I haven't blogged so I don't really know.

Having a theme for your blog is important. All successful blogs are specialist publications they pick a subject and publish regularly on that topic, I have a blog called "GobbledeGoox" about the challenges of writing and blogging. You question about which is better AMD or Intel, there is no reason you need to go that deep, you can make your blog about chips and the choices available, this gives you a reasonably wide scope, it allows you to write one week about a particular AMD chip and another pointing out the advantages Intel offers, it can demonstrate your expertise in the field without being too specific. Darren Rowse is one of the most successful bloggers yet he has two different blogs and two diverse subjects - you can do this, but you have to be aware that you will have a different audience for each.
