But when I didn’t get results after a month, then I decided to delete the blog and leave blogging. ( I felt the pain).

After that, I recovered the blog without wasting any time. I updated every article ( done research), you can’t imagine I started getting results within month.
So, learn new thing daily and be consistent.

The logo uploaded will be larger in size (width). Go to design option 🡺 Max. Width and decrease the width.
Let’s design right column
Now, for navigation I would like to add menu in right column. For that, you have to firstly create Menu.
Go to Appearance 🡺 Menus 🡺 Add categories, posts or pages 🡺 Create Menu ( I have already created). Now Click on Menu option from Module in the right column.
Now , I want that the menu to appear at the right side of the column. See, How to do it.
Something is missing. Hmm, Yeah it’s search icon. Go to Content Section 🡺 Elements 🡺 Enable Search Icon
If you want to add the background then just Select the Row Settings 🡺 Background 🡺 Add Background Color or Gradient.
If you want the row to appear forwards then Go to Design🡺 Box Shadow 🡺 Select the shadow that you like.
My Purpose is to give you direction. Explore all the options and make its look better. ( Design your own way).

Build Custom Body
Now, it’s time to build custom Body. The Process is same
Click on Add Custom Body🡺 Start Building🡺 Click on plus sign 🡺 Add single column🡺 Add Post Content module
Why we selected this Module? Because we want the content that you write in the “WordPress posts” to appear in the Body section.
But I want the content to appear different in mobile and desktop. But How we do that?
Do you want your post content to appear in a box like this-
Let’s do it-
Firstly we will optimize the post content for desktop. Before that, if you want to change the Text font Just,; Go to design option🡺Text option 🡺 Select text font ( Similarly change all heading text font if you want)
It’s simple to make the post content appear in a box.
Go to Post Content Module Settings 🡺 Design 🡺 Box Shadow 🡺 Select first shadow.
But Content looks too much wide. No worry, Just decrease the width.
The best option that I like in Divi is that you can optimize sizing and other options differently for desktop, tablet and phone.
It’s done. Now, Let’s optimize the post content for mobile.
What if you want the box shadow to appear in desktop but not in phone. ( Box shadow looks good only in desktop).
For that Design🡺 Box Shadow 🡺 Box Shadow Spread Strength 🡺 Select Phone option🡺 Decrease
Explore more and design it in your own way.
I think you have got an idea of how to design your blog with divi bulder.
Similarly, Build Footer ( I think now it’s not a big deal).
Similarly Build Homepage header, body, and footer. Keep in mind that in Body section ” Select Blog module not post content module”
Writing Posts using Divi Builder in WordPress
Go to Posts section in WordPress dashboard🡺 Click on Add New 🡺 Select Either Divi builder or default editor. ( I generally write posts in default editor)
If you select Default editor, What you can do is add Divi layout between writing in Default Editor ( It’s great)
The Attractive buttons that you saw above in posts are build using Divi builder ( Divi layout 🡺 Build New Layout🡺 Start Building🡺 Fullwidth🡺Button Module).

Choose a Niche for your Blog
This is the part where many newbies stuck.
Just ask these questions before picking a niche-
Can I write quality content regularly on this niche?
Is there enough room in this niche to grow?
Are people interested to talk about the topic? Can I build a community?
What is my purpose? Guys, Promise me that while selecting a niche your first purpose should be to provide value (the second purpose can be money).
How I will make my niche unique? What is uniqueness in my niche?
Note: Build your blog to solve the pain problems of the people. Your niche should be around a problem (back , neck pain etc.) not around a product. Choose a niche in which you have experience or want to learn about.
Here’s a special gift for you- If you want to see ‘How to pick a profitable niche’ then Get my Live Niche Research Ultimate Guide E-book for FREE with a 100+ blog niche list (Bonus).
Ultimate Niche Guide
Find your niche and start your profitable business now.
Short- Keep your domain name short. Short domain names are easy to remember and pronounce.
Numbers– Don’t use numbers. Avoid using numbers in your domain name as much as you can.
Keyword- Google doesn’t consider keyword in your domain name as a ranking factor ( but it will always be a plus point). For e.g. if your niche is around blogging and you choose a domain name ‘startablog.com’ then it’s not that your website will rank on top related to that keyword. But, the keyword in your domain name gives the audience a signal about your blog.
TLD extension- Prefer .com domains because it’s for globally. If not then you can choose .net and .org also.
Expired Domains- It will be great if buy an expired domain. You are getting some site authority without any work.
Let’s find a domain name-
Let’s find a domain name around a niche ‘blogging’.
Just go to LeanDomainSearch website ( Domain Name Generator) and type the keyword- ‘blogging’. See the results that appear and pick a domain name that is short and look brandable.
What is view of ‘Flashblogging.com’. Tell me in the Comments.
My domain name finding journey
First of all, I see that many bloggers are promoting Semrush affiliate program. So, I decided to include a Keyword of Semrush and buy ‘rushblogs.com’.
Then I came to know that Google is not considering keyword in the domain a ranking factor. Also, only writing about SEMrush won’t help me to grow and rank.
My domain name was small but not understandable (can’t be easily remembered). So, I just randomly search domain name and found hackblogging.com ( randomly putting words in front and back of the keyword ‘blogging’),
You can also find domain names by finding synonyms of a word and attach with your keyword.
In short: Buy a domain name that is short, brandable and gives idea of your business (E.g. windowcleaner.com)
Congrats, for choosing your ultimate domain name.
Choose a Ultimate Hosting for Your Blog
Every newbie has this question in his mind- “Which is the best and cheapest hosting?”.
Firslty, Let’s see ‘What is Web hosting’
In short: Web hosting is the process of renting or buying space to house a website on the World Wide Web.
There are tons of hosting providers out there, But What is the best WordPress Hosting for you? Any guess.
I personally recommend two hosting providers. Siteground and Greengeeks.
Why cheapest hosting is not good for you?
Low Site Speed
Not Good Support…..list is endless.
When I started blogging I also made a mistake by buying a cheap hosting to save money. ( I just wasted my time).
I made a great decision by investing some money in Siteground hosting. But, When I buy Siteground Hosting the price of plans was-
But after 30 Days the price increases and became this-
I was happy because I already bought Siteground for 1 year at low price but at one side I was also sad because I was recommending this hosting to everyone.
But Still, This is the best hosting for beginners.
Then, I started researching ” What are the best alternatives of Siteground Hosting out there”. After researching for many days I found that the best alternative is Greengeeks Hosting. See, the Proof (Strong Competition)
It’s clearly seeing that Greengeeks is the winner of this Poll result.
Follow these steps to purchase hosting and to setup your blog.
Go to Appearance. Click on themes and Then Click on ‘Add New’
After that Click on Upload theme and upload the .zip file you downloaded after buying a premium theme.
Note: Don’t try to get everything for Free. Invest some money and get high returns.
Important Plugins For WordPress
Here is the list of some important plugins that I personally use-
Rank Math SEO– This is one of my favorite SEO plugins. Firstly, I use Yoast SEO but when I see that rank math provides more features fro Free, then I switch to it. SEO is very important to rank and drive traffic.
Resmush.it-For loading site faster, it’s important that your images are not large in size. This plugins help you to optimize your images effectively.
Updraft Plus– It simplifies backup and restoration. This plugin backup your website daily (backup of site is necessary).
Monarch- It is a social sharing plugin, If you have already purchased divi pack then you just need to upload the .zip file into plugins. If not, then get divi pack now.
Bloom- The Ultimate E-mail optin and lead generation plugin for WordPress.
Sucuri Security- This plugin keeps your website secure. Security is the no.1 priority. (what if someone tries to hack your website).
Nitropack- It’s a free plugin to boost up your website. If your site doesn’t load faster than the user frustates and bounce back. This plugin will help to optimize your website and make it load faster.
How to install a plugin?
Go into plugins section in the WordPress dashboard.
Click on Add New button.
Search plugins or if you have .zip file then Click on Upload plugin.
Click on Install Now and then Click on “Activate”. (so simple, right).
Write your first ultimate blog post and Publish It.

Before Publishing read the complete article yourself. Check if there are any grammar or spelling mistakes ( Use Grammarly ).
Then, Click on the Publish Button.
After that index your URL in Google Search Console.
Now, give your blog post social signals ( Publish on Facebook, Instagram, youtube, quora, twitter, Pinterest and many other platforms).

Smart ways to make money from blogs
Note: Making quick money is dangerous
But, Here I will not tell any quck-rich schemes.
Ads- Google Adsense is just a motivation. Join premium ads network (ad thrive, info links, etc.)When massive traffic starts coming. Write a sponsored post ( if you have time) and conduct giveaways.
Affiliate marketing- You can a large amount through affiliate marketing. Many bloggers main income source is affiliate marketing. Join affiliates, search and promote products, track sales, and earn a commission.
I made my first dollar through Affiliate marketing. It’s so powerful.
Products- Sell e-books, online courses, softwares, professional services and physical products( go a level up). Build trust with your audience. E-mail marketing is a great way to build trust.
Conferences- Don’t miss conferences and interviews. Meet with people and grow your network.
