Welcome to the Blogging guide for beginners.
The goal of this section is to give you an introduction to Blogging, how to setup a blog, which content management system to use, how to get traffic to your blog, how to monetize your blog and answer various questions which may arise in the mind of a “Rookie blogger”. A rookie blogger is someone who has decided to start a blog but has lots of questions on blogging, the objectives, outcomes, the problems, the methods, the future and how to actually do blogging. (Don’t worry, I have had all the questions and doubts myself which I overcame one step at a time).
I created this section because I could not find a comprehensive guide on the internet which can answer basic questions of newbie bloggers all at one place. If you have a specific question which is missing from this list, please let me know through the contact page and I will add the question here.
