Now after sharing the importance of choosing a proper niche. It comes to the question how can I choose a suitable niche for myself? So keep up reading you will find all your answers for sure.

People reading my article this moment might have a number of skills but still, they are unaware of their skills.

And what if you have so many skills and passion but have no focus over your skills and passion then it is just useless.

So I am going to share some useful tips by which you can easily choose your niche.

In the process of finding the niche for your blog, start questioning yourself:

  1. What are your hobbies?

    Activities by yourself in free time.

  1. What things do you like and enjoy doing?

    Remind those things by which you feel pleasure and relaxation.

  1. How do you spend your free time?

    Your activities that give you satisfaction.

  1. What are your favorite topics to talk about?

    Search for the topics in which your interest is naturally built and you love to have long conversation or debate over that topic.

  1. What do you enjoy reading and learning about?

    Reading and learning is something that seems a little bit boring but reading the topic that gives you pleasure and for sure you learn something by that read might be the topic of your niche.

  1. What topics do you know more than most about?

    Search for the Mentors that are expert in your area of interest. And trust me this is the best ever way to polish your skills by their experiences.

Now after asking all these questions to you, most of my readers have selected a suitable niche for themselves surely.

What is a Domain Name:

After selecting your favorite niche for your website, the next step is the selection of your domain name.

Domain name is simply the identification or a link of your website like RehmatBlogger.com is my website domain name.

Some people might get confused between URL and domain name. So let me clear your confusion. URL is like RehmatBlogger.com/create-professional-blog-beginners/ while only RehmatBlogger.com is your domain name. So URL is your full web address and a domain name is actually the identity of your blog or website.

A domain name should be short, simple, unique, eye catching. A domain name is a simple way to access your website. A Domain name defines your brand.

How to Choose a proper Domain Name?

Now I will provide you some tips and recommendations that must be kept in mind while selecting a domain name:

  1. Your domain name should be like a unique brand name.
  2. Make sure that your domain name is concise and short.
  3. Your domain name must be easy to write.
  4. Your domain name must be easy to pronounce.

Web Hosting:

After selecting a nice and easy domain name for your website or blog, it comes to web hosting.

Web hosting simply means storage for texts, images, files, videos etc of your website.

Select the best web hosting provider company. Because not all web hosters are good and the services provided by them don’t really prove useful for you.

This is the most important step in blogging because it is the base of your website.

Most of the web hosting servers have issues and make your site loading slowly. And when someone visits your website, he or she faces the issue of slow loading so they just do a click back and leave your site just because of this loading issue.

This could create a negative impact of your website on your visitors and they might don’t visit your site again.

Blogging Platform:

To create a professional blog in 2017, you need to choose a platform for your blog like WordPressJoomlaBlogger etc. I (Rehmat Ullah) will recommend WordPress as it is the easiest and most flexible platform in the market.

There are a lot of developers of WordPress due to which thousands of themes and plugins are available for WordPress to make your blog more functional and professional with a great look.

Website Design:

After selecting a suitable domain and hosting, it comes to the look and design of your website.

While designing your website, do remember that first impression of your website will be the last impression.

The content of your website and the physical appearance of your website are included in the website design.

It determines the layout, colors, and styles of text, structure, graphics, and images of any website.

The more your website looks professional, the more you will appear credible to your viewers.

You can use the different types of free and premium themes that make your website look professional.

Creative Mind:

Now you have given your website a custom look. Now you have to make yourself fully creative because you are the owner of your blog and this blog will be successful only and only when you are creative and sharp minded person.

Let me explain you the term creative minded in this field:

A creative minded person is that person that sees information in each and everything present around and then very tactfully relates that information to his or her experiences and into the existing knowledge in order to create something new.

The more you think the more creative you will become.

How to become a Creative Mind Person?

  1. Learn something new on daily basis.
  2. Keep your vision big.
  3. Try hard and become dependent on yourself.
  4. Never stop thinking.
  5. Enjoy your life in a great way.

By applying all of the above points in your life, you can become creative for sure and think in a great manner for the success of your blog.

Create quality content:

Make sure that you are posting the quality content on your site. As we all know that Google not only demands the content but it demands the quality content to rank your blog.
