Differences Between A Blog And Website

I think Many Of You Will Thinking That What Are The Differences Between Blogs and Website. If You Were Thinking This Then You Don’t Have To Think Much Because Here Are Some Main Differences Between A Blog And A Website:

1. A Blog Run By an Individual Person Or A Small Group While A Website is Run By a Company Or A Huge Group.

2. A Blog is Being Updated regularly with new content While Websites are not Being updated frequently.

3. Contents Of A Blog Is In The Form Of Blog Posts While Websites Are Static in Nature Where Contents Are Organized In Pages.

4. A Blog Is Created To Spread The Owner’s Knowledge, At Another Side, Website Is Created For Promoting The Owner’s Services & Products.


Step 1: Choose A Platform For Blogging

start a blog in 2021

Yes, Now You Have Understood The Basic Information About Blogging. Right?

Now You Have To Choose Where Do You Want To Start A Blog, On WordPress, or Blogger. If You Have Money To Invest In Blogging Then You Should Go With WordPress And If You Don’t Have Money To Invest And Even That You Want To Start Your Blog Then You Can Go With Blogger Platform Which Is Absolutely Free.

Having Problem On Choosing? If Yes, Then Here Are The Differences Between Blogger & WordPress.

1. Blogger Is A Free Platform While You Have To Buy Hosting & Domain Before Starting A Blog On WordPress. So If You Have Money To Invest Then You Can Go With WordPress & If You Don’t Have Money To Invest Then You Can Go With Blogger.

2. You Won’t Get Many Facilities In Blogger While In WordPress You Will Get Unexpected Facilities. Now Here, In The Case Of Facilities, You Should Go With WordPress.

3. Now, In WordPress There Any Many Plugins Available To Make Your Blog More Better But In Blogger You Cannot Install Any Kind Of Plugins To make Your Blog More Better.

4. In Blogger, You Won’t Have Full Control On Your Blog Means Google Can Delete Your Blog Whenever They Want But They Won’t Delete Your Blog Without Any Reason. While In WordPress, You Have Full Control On Your Blog. Now, If You Want To Have Full Control Of Your Blog On Your Own Then You Should Start Your Blog With WordPress.

At The Last, I Would Like To Recommend You To Go With Blogger If You Have no money for investing and If You Have Money To Invest Then Go With WordPress.


Step 2: Pick A Good Niche For Your Blog

Now, After Choosing Any One Platform For Blogging, You Have To Select A Niche.

But Wait, What is Niche?

Yeah So,  A Niche Is A Kind Of Topic On Which You Will Write an Article. For Example, My Blog’s Niche is Blogging, SEO & Affiliate marketing. Right? Now You May Have Noticed That I am Posting Articles Only About Blogging, SEO & Affiliate Marketing.

Because Blogging & Technology Is My Niche. So Same Like This, You Have To Select A Niche For Your Blog. There Are Many Niches Like Golf, Technology, Blogging, etc. But  I Will Recommend You To Select Your Interested Topic As Your Niche.


Step 3: Select A Domain Name For Your Blog

Selecting A Good Domain Is Very Important. You Have To Select A Good Domain Name. But What Is A Domain? So, A Domain Is A Kind Of Unique URL Where Your Blog Will Be Located.

It’s The Address Of Your Blog. For Example:  Whenever We Want To Visit YouTube. Then We Simply, Type www.youtube.com In Browser. Right? Now, www.youtube.com is the address of YouTube. Here Are The Quick Tips For Selecting A Domain Name:

1. Try To Choose A Domain Which Contains Your Keyword

.  Yes, If You Choose A Domain That Consist Your Keyword Then It Will Easy To Know The Topic Of Your Blog. But How? Now, If I Tell You “Blogging Techz” Now You Will Think That This Blog Is Related With Blogging & Technology. If You Also Put Your Keyword In Your Domain Then It Also Will Be Easy To Rank. Not Much Easy But It Will Help You Ranking The Blog.

2. Don’t Choose Long Domain Name.

Maximum Character Of Domain Should be 15.Your Domain Name Should Not Be So Long. Because It’s Not Easy To Remember A Long Domain Name. You Should Make Your Domain Length Short. Because It Is Easy To Remember And It Also Makes Your Readers Easy To Find Your Blog.

3. Don’t Use Numbers ( For Example: 1,2,3 etc.) And Characters Like: . , / , -, etc.

Now, You Have Seen Many Pro Bloggers Like Anil Agarwal, Chayan Chakrabarti, Sumit Sao, Etc. Don’t Use Characters Like .,/,-,\ etc. In Their Blog’s Domain Name. Because It isn’t Good To Put It. Why? Because Many Peoples While Searching Don’t Use This Type Of Characters ( . , ” , \ , etc. )

4. Make It Easy To Type

Yes, You Should Select A Domain Which is Easy To Type Also. Because When It’s Easy To Type Then Your Visitors Can Easily Remember Your Domain Name. And They Don’t Need To Ask Other For Your Blog. It Also Effect On Ranking. Because As You Know That, People Don’t Want To Type Difficult Keywords. If You Make Your Domain Easy To Type Then The Chances Of Beating Your Competitor Will Be Increased.

5. It Should Be Unique.

Absolutely, Your Domain Name Should Be Unique. It Shouldn’t Be Matched With Other’s Domain. Like My Domain Name Is “BloggingTechz.Com” Now It’s Unique. If You Search In Google “Blogging Techz” Then It Shows My Official Facebook Page & Group. Because It’s Unique.

6. Now, Choose A Domain & Check Its Availability.

Yes, Now After Completing The Above Things, If You Find A Perfect Domain Name For Your Blog. How? You Can Use Many Blog Name Generator Tools Which Are Widely Used. I Will Recommend You To Use The Following Tools For Finding Domain name Ideas:
