Find your The-One-Thing you like the most and blog about it!
Here are my step-by-step activities of blogging:
Just about 2 hours a day, You can blog your own specific thing easily.
1. The blog name
My intention is to create a list of several small niches that work both offline and online. So, I decided to pick up this blog-name (setprofitonline.com). But, you are probably little difficult in deciding your blog name and you can decide based on your specialization or what you like doing everyday, the most. After you have your blog name in mind, you can check it availability in Godaddy.com. If it is not, you may need to find another acceptable one.
Here is a post to show you how you can brainstorm your ideas and come up with a good blog name.
2. A blog hosting plan
After you have your own blog name or blog domain, you can find out affordable hosting company for your beginning to blog. Of course, there are many hosting companies out there or even you can host your blog with Godaddy if you buy your blog domain with it. For my blog, I chose Insty company although it is a little expensive but the service is reliable, and one option that I enjoy the most is that this company provides me a optin-service that I could save much amount of money if I start up my mailing list with other company.
Here is a post that I show you how to live up your blog with WordPress platform and why I chose Insty company for my blog.
3. A blog theme and plugins
A theme for your blog is like your home style. You probably like the simple style or the sexy or modern one that looks so much attractive. With this blog, I choose the theme from the Inkthemes company because it is affordable and I can receive a life-time update along with the fast support, especially the theme is seamlessly responsive to any devices.
After you installed your lovely theme, you need to install some useful and functional plugins for your blog, and you can use them for Free. Here are the plugins that I used for my own blog.
a. Akismet Anti-Spam: Your site is fully configured and being protected, even while you sleep.
b. Wordfence Security: Anti-virus, Firewall and Malware Scan.
c. WP-Optimize: With it, you can clean up your database easily and safely, without manual queries.
d. WP Smush: Reduce image file sizes, improve performance and boost your SEO.
e. W3 Total Cache: Dramatically improve the speed and user experience of your site
4. The blog content
It needs your hard-work to blog daily, weekly or monthly. It depends on your schedule. The content of your blog means so much important to tell the world about what you are blogging about. It should be much relevant from one to another and must be very useful for your readers. The more interesting your blog content is, the better interaction from your readers.
I wrote a post below about how to find interesting topics to blog.
5. Books I read the most
YOU WANT LESS.
You want fewer distractions and less on your plate. The daily barrage of e-mails, texts, tweets, messages, and meetings distract you and stress you out. The simultaneous demands of work and family are taking a toll. And what’s the cost? Second-rate work, missed deadlines, smaller pay cheques, fewer promotions-and lots of stress.
AND YOU WANT MORE.
You want more productivity from your work. More income for a better lifestyle. You want more satisfaction from life, and more time for yourself, your family, and your friends.

6. How the blog generates income
Please remember that nothing is Free in this world, I think. The bloggers also need income to support the cost of hosting service, domain and other payments. In this blog, I choose to work as affiliate with Google Adsense, Amazon, Click bank, JVzoo and some others. However, my most preferable platform is Google Adsense.
