When you will try to search about this word on Google, you will find the answer as!
“A regularly updated Website or Webpage, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational Style “
If I try to explain you in my own words, it is a piece of writing-related with
User interest and as well as writer,

It may be related to anything,
it is related to earning money or investing, traveling latest fashion, career, education technology, books, hobbies, mom care, Parenting,
Health and fitness, Yoga, or lifestyle blog
I do agree with all this information is provided by the website of the related topic also but
They are static information and do not update frequently.
In blogs, all these pieces of information are regularly updated.

Another interesting fact about blog that I wish to discuss here is related to earning through blogging!
Are blogging can be a earning option?
Blogging is not only about your writing passion but it can be a livelihood option also!
You may not become rich in a day,
As blogging is a continuous process but it is a sure-shot way to make money and grow your wealth,
To start blogging you can use free sites like wordpress.com or blogger.com.
These free sites will help you test waters, get some free practice and showcase your talent.
But these sites offer limited options when it comes to designing, developing, and promoting a blogging site,
Hence once you get hands-on experience in setting up a free blog I suggest you should build a good professional website.
I will try to explain to you in a few steps how you can be a professional bloggers,
The First Step is finding your niche or Finding your Area or Getting the subjects in which you have knowledge & experience:-
It is defined by what you are going to share with the world,
it comes from your area of interest, Passion, Experience, it may be related to traveling, medical, Photography, food, fashion, etc
There are four basic categories also in which all the niches come under,
The second step towards being a professional blogger,
Published your blog:-
In setting up a professional website you might have to pay a bit but the cost is nothing when you look at the benefits.
It is recommended that you use wordpress.org to set up your own website, WordPress.org has themes for various topics, has powerful features like customizable designs,
SEO-friendly pages, tools to manage media, and helps to build sites that can suit your desktop/laptop/ mobile phones, etc. along with good security measures.
You can add galleries, analytics, forums or you just name it.
Worpress.org supports it all. Your website is your property and so I am sure you want to make it beautiful and priceless.
You will also have to select a hosting site. Now, these sites are many and based on your budget you can select.
Some of the good names are GODADDY, Blue Host, Hostinger, etc.
The third step towards being a professional Blogger ,
Promoting your blog:-
After publishing the blogs, the next step would be a blog promotion
This can be done in various ways the simplest and cheapest way with the help of Social media either by self-promotion to your network or by paid promotion depending on your budget, this is the shortest way of popularising your blogs
The other way is Building your community, it is a long process but once you build a community then the whole process will be easy and you will keep improving in your blog writing with regular feedback.
For example, I am providing 3 -4 Backlink here, surprise for you people that you have to find out backlink in the post, this will give you a bright picture of how this works,
If you want to learn digital marketing
then I am giving the link to my mentor Deepak Kankaraju link also DigitalDeepak.com
The Forth and important step towards being a professional blogger
Monetizing Your Blog:-
Your blog is gaining traction.
Shouldn’t you plan to monetize your blog now?
Sell your space to advertisers directly,
This can be difficult as you might not be able to contact advertisers directly
Instead, in the beginning, you can think of approaching ad networks.
These ad networks are helpful and,
Provide you with some ready-made ads, although you will have to share profits with them.
Selling banner advertising space can start the process of monetization for your blog.
Every click on the banner can earn you some commission though it might be a small amount.
While you sell your blog space for banner ads,
You can consider promoting affiliate brands through your website.
In affiliate marketing, you promote others’ products and/or services by placing their link on your website.
This ensures you earn some commission whenever the product is purchased using the link placed on your website.
Today almost all e-commerce platforms have affiliate programs of some kind.
You can also start writing content for the affiliate product/service you are promoting.
This will ensure that people start using your affiliate links more often and if the content is good, then you might end up being paid by the affiliate company for the content too.
When you are writing content for the affiliate product/service see that you give an honest opinion about the product or service.
Your content should encourage buyers to buy only if they really need the product/service. Your website will gain a good reputation if your reviews are honest.
Final thought over Blogging that as digital marketing is growing day by day and people fed up with the regular social media posts, TV inputs
they look for a new source of information, which is interesting and informative
I am seeing a very bright future for blogging and bloggers in the coming days,
It may be any form of content like articles, videos, images, etc
This is my first article about blogging many more will follow in this series,
