There are 7 steps to start blogging in 2021:
1. Identify Your Blogging Interest
People are confused about starting a blog and banging their heads against walls to find the right mentor.
According to them, blogging is just one way to make a lot of money which they can only do with the help of the right mentors.
Instead, the first thing you need to find is your knowledge, passion, interest, or enthusiasm in any topic.

Whatever stage of your life you find yourself in, we all have some special skills and passions that drive us.
2. Find a Domain Name for Your Blog
A domain name is the name of your website. So, once you have decided on your blogging topic, next is the domain name.

Therefore, you will need to open any of the websites mentioned above to find the perfect domain name for your business. You can also use some domain name generators to find good domains.
3. Find a Good Hosting for Your Blog
Hosting is an online server that helps you store your data.
So, your domain name will be the name of your website, and all data for that website will be stored on the server which is called hosting.
Since data is very important for your blog, you should select your hosting company very carefully.
