What is a blog?
A blog is an online platform used by content writers to express a thought, share an experience or an idea or simply find an online space where they can write about the things they would like to share others.
Knowing what a blog is, your purpose for blogging should fall in between the lines of its meaning to be able to create a blog. You blog for a reason, and if your reason for blogging is because you want to make money from it, you have a few things to consider;
The niche of your blog
A niche in blogging dictionary is an environment your blog has, the universe you intend to create in your blog. By simplifying it, a niche is an area you are familiar with or a place you would like to create. If you would want to create is a blog about dogs, then your niche or your blog’s universe is about dogs. To make something so big simplified and unique as well, you can blog more specifically, like a blog about dogs used for hunting. The more unique your blog is, the more unique and compact your target audience will be
Target audience of your blog
Before creating a blog, you need to have a target audience. A blog about dogs used for hunting will definitely target dog owners who have dogs that accompany them during hunting trips and not dog owners who carry their dogs in their purses. Write articles about topics you like for the people you would like to be reading your articles. In blogging, you should remember that you are not only writing for yourself but also for a reading audience, especially when you intend to make money from it.
Your target advertisers
Your blog is about dogs for hunting and your readers are dog owners who have hunting dogs, so what are the advertisements that a dog owner with a hunting dog would possibly view? Dog accessories, protein supplements for their pets, vitamins, training services for hunting dogs and the like are the possible advertisers you will attract.
To make it short, to monetize your blog, you need to have three things, a target advertiser, a target market and a creative brain to be able to create a content worthy to be read.
