We will go through the above points in detailed for better understanding. As every one should understand content is the heart for your blog. So to write a good content first you should be familiar with the topic you want to write.
Topic selection: Select the topic which you know very well it’s not that you must know every thing, but atleast better than few. If you are confused in selecting the topic just do some research, see what people are searching for, their are many tools like google trends. Before you start to write your first post learn a lot about the topic you want to write. Read books search on Google gather some information and then start writing the blog. As i said content is heart of your if write good content then definitely people will visit. Don’t ever copy and post some other’s content it’s not recommend. When you are ready with the topic think how can you make it reach to people differently. As their are many blogs with same content so think in a unique and innovative way. We can have a full blog post about content. But for now I minized it with covering all the basic points. So before you go next step be ready with good topic.
Know your Audience: Identify your audience for example if you have flower shop your targeted audience may be youngsters who are in 20’s – 30’s. If it’s a sport shops your targeted audience would be kids, youngsters, or players. So first you need to identify your audience because they are only the people who are going to read your post. Every time try to interact with more people add comments box so that people may tell their opinions and views. Read the comments and respond to them by this your interactions with them will be improved. Use the social networks to share and make friends ask them to subscribe if they like. Share on every network the more you share the more you learn and the more knowledge you gain.
Domain Name: Domain name is the URL of your site, so select the good one which is simple unique and relevant to your topic. As this is the first thing your customers would notice so select the one which is easy to remember. Don’t select lengthy domain name some time it’s ok but it’s not preferable. Mostly select the domain name in the length of 10 to 13 characters, top site are below 10 characters in length, like Amazon and flipkart.
Hosting Providers : Select the best and reliable with least down time hosting service. For more information on selecting the hosting you can read my article Free web hosting providers.click on the below link for more information about Hosting providers.

But in free you have lot of drawbacks and it’s not technically owned by you. As many of them like you would be sharing the same space. You can’t monetize the free blogs.
