“As this is really beneficial to everyone, hence I’m sharing this in my blog… Or course for my future posts, I will still sharing more about travel relevant posts. However, please take times to read at least this post:”
You may curious about blogging platform…
How to make money via blogging?
How to transform blogging becomes a business platform?
However, it all takes time to see the results and outcome.
First thing first, you must have your own blog website. Trust me, I was using many free blogs when I first started (just to test the water). Ended up, I “migrated” 3 times to create and have my own blog website.
For the newbie, do not repeat the same mistake as me.
Because when you are using a free blog website, there are many restrictions on the free blog.
You might not able to put the advertisement on your free blog – which means indirectly you’ll reduce many potential ways to work with some top brands and potential companies.
Find niche theme for your blog
When you have decided to start a blog, please ensure that what type of topic that you want to focus on writing or sharing.
I understand everyone likes to share many things. Sometimes, I like to share about travelling, sometimes I like to share other topics like sports, movies etc.
However, based on my research online. Most of the bloggers encourage to only FOCUS on one theme. I totally agreed with that. Just imagine when one reader searching for a topic about travelling. When he/ she comes to your page and read one of the relevant articles, and the readers might interested to know more about other travelling ideas or stories. But since you have so many different themes on your blog, it might lose the attention or interest from him/her.
It is the same thing as you want to buy a genuine watch, you will search and walk to a few shops who selling only watches. Imagine the shop is selling many other different things including toys, clothes and jewellery. How would you feel?
You need to have your own domain & web hosting
In order to own a blog, you will need to register a domain for your blog website.
First, brainstorm a good name for your blog. For example, if you like to have a blog for food, I will suggest a name which will be relevant to “food”.for example, the well-known brand “foodpanda” in Malaysia, this is quite straightforward and readers will be directly related to food. Isn’t it?
Next, choose a reliable hosting company.
Depends on your target audience, if your main focus is the local audience in Malaysia or somewhere Asia. Here are a few companies that I want to suggest:
This is one of the most hostings company recommended by most bloggers. Yes, I have looked around online and read most of the other bloggers’ review about each hosting company.
It is one of the oldest web hosts started in 1996, Bluehost has become the largest brand name when it comes to WordPress hosting. They are an official ‘WordPress‘ recommended hosting provider.
Again, as mentioned, if your target audience is international readers. I would suggest this.

This is the blogging platform that most of the bloggers are using. I have tried many other blog platforms as a start, it is not saying wordpress is the best user-friendly kindly of a platform. However, there are many functions, plugin, widgets that you can install in wordpress.
I am still learning to improve better in terms of blogging and using WordPress.Each day I have been learning something new either in writing or resolving technical issues.
Whenever I have problems with WordPress, I try to google search online and it is not hard to find solution online as WordPress is commonly used by most bloggers!
Remember, everything should start from somewhere.If you think blogging is not risky to start with, why don’t you give it a try?
Despite I have just started my own blogging lately, I truly have faith in this industry.
It is not all those sorts of traditional business or multi-level marketing where you need to approach people to join you. But it is only sharing your knowledge, skills and experiences to beneficial for others.
