This article will show you step-by-step how to make your own blog site, and make it creative, beautiful and interesting so people come back over and over! Make Blog Site – Stand out from the rest! If you have a good blog site, you can earn a substantial income from it also! The best part is it’s super easy to do, and I can show you how!
Let’s start with imagery. The use of images is critical to keep people engaged! Here are a couple of pictures I chose to display the “stand out” theme.
Let's start at the beginning
You may be looking for the nuts and bolts of making your own blog site, and so I’m going to walk you through the very simple steps, but along the way I plan to teach you how to make your site absolutely fabulous! Don’t have a site like everyone else! Make your site stand out!
Step 1 - Acquire a website
Here is a quick video that shows how extremely easy it is to create your first website:
Step 2 - Research for your awesome blog
The type of research will vary slightly depending on what you choose for your niche, obviously. In today’s age, we are lucky when it comes to research, because we have the internet at our fingertips. How cool is that? Back in the day, I’d have to trek to the library or pull out my encyclopedias (which really had very little information as much as they used to cost).
I want to give you a word of caution, though. The last thing you want is to have a website full of regurgitated information. The search engines won’t like you, and neither will your readers. You need to be unique and interesting and share information your readers will find valuable!
Take a trip to a retail store or professional that centers around your niche. If you are a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate, you will have other marketers in your niche you can bounce ideas off of.
Do some searches online in your niche and take a look at some of the other blog sites. What is happening in your niche? What are people talking about? What types of products and services are these other blogs promoting? I am not, in any way, suggesting you copy other sites. What I am suggesting is that you let others inspire you to create your own amazing site!
Step 3 - Write content
This part of blogging is my favorite part. I love putting my thoughts down in writing, and I love helping other people! Do you know that is the key to making money? Helping others? Zig Ziglar said it best:
"You can have if you will just help other people get what they want."
- Zig Ziglar
I want you to really process this quote. Think about it. Zig Ziglar did not talk to hear himself. He spoke to impart words of wisdom, and these words are full of wisdom for sure.
Make your blog all about helping people. Figure out what it is people in your niche need, and provide that for them. This can be information, products or services.
When you first begin blogging, you always want to begin with information. Do not immediately promote any products or services. That comes a little later in the process.
Help writing content - Do not fear!
I can’t tell you how many of my readers and students come to me with fear in their eyes telling me they just aren’t very good at the English language.
I tell them to fear not! Wealthy Affiliate has a writing platform that is going to save you all that worry, and a ton of time, and help you put out quality content with proper spelling, grammar, sentence structure and punctuation!
What?! I know! Let me show you how it works.
The content on your blog is what it’s all about! I teach all my students to always choose a niche they love! I tell them to find something they are passionate about! If they really commit to your blog, they will spend a lot of time immersed in their niche, so it really needs to be something they want to spend that much time and energy on!
I love my blog. I have met so many people and helped to teach people how to make money online and improve their lives. This includes college students, single moms and dads, couples, and retirement folks. Blogging is not only a great outlet, but it is a way to generate a substantial income online from home!

Step 5 - Share your content
How much you share and to whom you share will all depend on the purpose of your blog. If you are blogging for yourself, family and friends, you’ll want to share new articles with them on your social media. If you are blogging to earn income online, you want to blast your posts out all over all your social media, personal and business!
