What you need to know before starting a Blog or creating a website in Cameroon


What is a blog?



When I first head of blogging, I thought it was only for news, entertainment etc. I created news blogs and it was not going well for me. I decided to write about what I knew best (mathematics) and it worked like magic. After my experience in blogging, I created 237blogjourney to also share about blogging tips which is now know best. You will find somewhere in this book how to choose good blog niche that pays.

So, you heard of these words and they scare you or you pretend to know like me?
When I first heard of these words, blog, Blogger Blogging, it sounded to me like something imaginary. I did little research and today I will simply all these for you in this article.

You may want to ask why I need a blog.
Here's the short answer,
You need a blog or website for any of your portfolio in the 21th century.
You can be a church, artist, organization, you can just for a hobby, you can make money blogging etc, I have covered why you need a blog or website in details in my other articles on 237blogjourney blog.

What's a blog?


A blog is a short form of weblog; it is where your post or articles are stored ready for anyone who searches it on the internet can get it. The internet will keep quality and best articles on the first page of search engines.

A blog is a website or section of a website, where a person (known as a blogger) regularly publish information about a particular subject or a topic that he or she has sufficient knowledge about or is passionate about. That is something like your hobby
For example, if you search what's a blog, you will get many answers from different bloggers.

Who is a Blogger?


Blogger is anyone writes quality post or articles in an organized, consistent manner and publishes them on a blog. This means you write what you know best or like best or maybe teaching people some stuffs etc.  For example the person write articles on 237blogjourney is a blogger

What's Blogging?


Blogging is the act of writing articles and publishing on your blog to the internet frequently.
You can blog about anything as mentioned above, do what you like best. Someone somewhere likes it. These are your audience on the internet. Is blogging good only for bloggers? Big no a blog is important for everyone; I will give you some reasons below and explain in relation to your line of business.

Importance of having a blog or website.


The are many advantages of having a blog as an individual or a company like e commerce company.

Importance of a blog to an individual
1


What is a blog niche?


To start a blog in Cameroon the first thing you will need to do, is to choose the niche of your blog. That is a blogging topic.
A niche is what you will be blogging about. For example, you might like to blog about news, sport, health, education and many other topics. There is something I call specific niche and it is what this article is all about.
Let me show you good examples of specific niche.

1 you might like to blog about sport and decide to focus on football, here is your specific niche.

2 you might like to Blog about education and choose Mathematics like me. Mathematics is a specific niche.

I am given these examples because some people don't really understand a niche. Some blog niches are already saturated meanwhile some are still untouched. Read the guidelines bellow to help you get a better niche that pays.



Here are the guidelines to choosing a good niche.


1. Choose a specific niche. As mentioned above, it's proven that blogs with specific niche easily get monetize. I personally had a news blog with more than one hundred post but was rejected; my AdSense account was approved for a mathematics blog with just 32 posts.
So, you don't want to be a jack of all trade.

2 Choose a niche that you have passion in. When I talk of passion, I mean what you know to your finger tips and also like doing all the time. That is something like your hubby. This is to ensure that you don't choose a niche and after writing about ten posts, you get stock.

3 Plan: Before chosen your niche, do forecasts about what you will be writing about. That is if I start a blog today will I be able to write unlimited articles without feeling bored?
This is the kind of question you need to ask yourself before choosing a niche.

Follow the guidelines above and choosing a blog niche will never be a problem to you.

How to select blog name and blog address.


Can you believe that when I first started blogging, I spend about one night thinking only about blog name? This was because I never had a guide like this one.
After doing some little research I put together these few tips that can help you select your blog name and domain.
  • Make sure your blog name is easy to remember.
  • Make sure it is easy to pronounce.
  • Make sure it is easy to spell.
  • Make sure it is easy make sure it is not too long.
  • It will be the best if your blog name is same as your domain name, unfortunately it is difficult to get same blog name and url( DOMAIN) on some free platforms.
This is why it is also good to buy a domain of your choice
You can form anything that sounds good and give your blog name.
For example your name can be   SERAPHINE BOH and you decide to give your blog name as SERABO. Cool right

What will make people to understand what your blog is about are the description and not the name even though some blog names reflect what the blogs are about.



What is a Domain name?


After you have chosen a niche (or decide on what topic or subject to write about), you will choose a web address for your blog.
A web address is the unique alphanumeric characters that we usually type in to our web browser whenever we want to visit a particular website or blog e.g. 237blogjourney.blogspot.com, munang.net, 237shobiz.com mimimefoinfos.com etc.

Practical example.

Go to any browser now and type www.237blogjourney.blogspot.com, you will arrive on my blog where you will find all basic and advance blogging tips. Sure you got it.
That’s the web address of this 237BLOGJOUNEY. Every blog needs a web address for internet users to be able to access it and read what has been published on it.

Now, to start a blog in Cameroon, you will also need to register your own web address i.e. www. yourownwebaddress.com. It will cost you between 10 to 13 dollars( 6000frs to 10000frs) to register your own domain name (web address).
Hey don’t be scared, this is not the free blog I am talking about. You will get how to create the free blog below.

Web addresses are registered on websites known as domain name registrars. Godaddy.com is an example of a domain name registrar. Many people register their web address at godaddy.com. I have covered step by step on how to register your own blog domain in an article on 237blogjourney blog. This book is base on how to create your own blog for free.


What is Web hosting space and Web hosting Service?


Whenever you type the web address of any website or blog in to your browser, texts, pictures and videos shows up on your computer screen or android phone, Do you know where these stuffs are coming from? Well you will know today.
The business of leasing spaces on a webserver is called Web hosting service and the individuals or companies involved in such business are called web hosts or web hosting companies. Hostgator, Bluehosts, Ipage, Dream Hosts are some good examples of webhosts or Web hosting companies.

The web hosts or web hosting companies will host your blog on their servers and make it accessible to your blog readers 24/7 for a fee which range from $1 to $6 per month depending on the quality of the hosting service offered by the web host.

 The space on a webserver where your blog posts, pictures and videos has been stored (hosted) is called a web hosting space.

So after registering your domain name with Godaddy.com, you will also need to buy a webserver or rent a hosting space from a web host (pay for webhosting service) to host your blog (which is far cheaper than buying your own personal web server).

Once you have registered your domain name and paid for web hosting service, you can then set up your blog within 6 minutes and start blogging in Cameroon.
Hey this is not the free creation of blogs I am talking about, but it is also important to get paid domain and hosting when you are a master in blogging. I have explained these reasons on 237blogjourney in an article. For example if you are and artist or company, it’s good to have .com in your domain to show credibility.

How much does it cost to start a blog in on paid platforms in Cameroon?


If you read carefully, you will see that I mentioned somewhere that create your blog for free and make it look professional. On paid platforms, you blog will be highly professional without you editing anything while on free platforms you need to do some editing yourself before your blog will look beautiful. You will find in this book how to make your blogger theme look professional.

At this point you already understand that, a domain name and a web hosting space are the two different things you will need in order to start a or website blog in Cameroon. So basically on paid platforms, you will spend like 80 dollars for domain and hosting, and like 15 dollar for the person (I) you will higher to create it. You can do it yourself but it needs some technical advice.

Domain name registration at godaddy.com will cost you about $13 (6500FCFA).
Web hosting service will cost you not less than $50 for one year hosting, web hosting fees are paid on a monthly basis just like you normally pay your rent but if you choose to pay for several months in advance you can get a huge discount off your bill.
Web hosting companies (web hosts) like hostgator.com, blue host which is best with wordpress will give you a 60% discount.

If you are thinking to ask why do I need to pay this expensive amount to get my blog running live?
I have these quick answers for you.
Making money blogging is just like any other business. To start a business you must invest by paying rent, tax security etc.  This goes same with blogging; you have to pay for all this. The only different is that the later is physical and the present is digital.
Paying for this is relatively cheaper than buying a server.

Whether at the end you choose not to buy a domain, pay for hosting, your blog must pass via these stages to be live for anyone to access it from the internet.
There are companies that offer these services for free to people like you and I.
Before I give you these platforms, at this point you must have understood exactly how the internet works. Isn’t it? Now, let’s discuss about blogging platforms.

What is a blogging platform?


Like the place you rent and put your goods for sell, blogging platforms are same. Blogs are created on blogging platforms. In those days everything about blogging platforms was paid but Nowadays, I can say there are two categories of blogging platforms which include;
The Free Blogging Platforms and
The Paid blogging Platforms

The Free Blogging Platforms


 Free blogging platforms (sites) are web sites that will enable you to start a blog for free on their web server i.e. without you spending a dime. Those free blogging platforms (sites) will offer you a free web hosting space on their server and also give you a free sub web address so that you can create a blog without spending cash. In addition to that, the free blogging sites also provides free web design templates which makes it possible for you and I to use an android phone or computer to create a blog with just drag and drops and some clicks within seconds.

In this digital era, there are lots of free blogging platforms but the most popular and also the best free blogging platforms where you can start for free and earn which include;


Of all the free blogging sites (platforms) mentioned above, Blogger (blogger.com) is the best free blogging site due to the following reasons.

The Blogger.com platform offers a free web address like yourblogname.blogspot.com and also makes it possible for you to link your own personal domain name (yourblogname.com) to your blog i.e. if you don’t want to use the lengthy free web address yourblogname.blogspot.com offered by Blogger. That is blogger offers you and I free hosting but you can add a dotcom to your domain name at anytime without charges.

Blogger.com offers unlimited bandwidth; which means that even if 1 billion people visit your blog per day or per month, you won’t be asked to pay a dime. Other free blogging platforms (sites) like WordPress.com will ask you to upgrade from the free plan to the premium (paid) plan after your blog starts receiving huge amount of web traffic. After you have upgraded to the premium plan, you will be expected to pay about $4 per month for WordPress.com to continue hosting your blog on their web server even if you are not making money from your blog or your blog is just a hubby blog.

The Blogger.com platform makes it possible for bloggers to customize their blogs while other blogging platforms like wordpress.com doesn’t allow bloggers to make any changes on the design or appearance of their blogs. That is you use only plugins.

Blogs created on the Blogger.com platform are more search engine friendly than blogs hosted on other free blogging platforms (sites). Since the Blogger.com blogging platform is owned by the Google Company, your blog files (your blog posts, pictures etc) will be hosted on Google server and will be easily indexed and quickly displayed in the Google search results. This is as compare to free hosting on other platforms and not paid hosting. 
Blogger.com also makes it possible for Cameroon bloggers to make money online from their blogs through the Google Adsense pay per click advertisement partnership program. Other free blogging sites like WordPress.com won’t allow you to monetize your blog unless you upgrade to the premium plan. Instead the WordPress Company will be the one making money from your blog by displaying ads on your blog while you do all the hard work of blogging and driving traffic to your blog.

It’s extremely easy to create a blog on the Blogger platform. This explains why there are thousands of blogspot.com blogs today. With just few clicks of a mouse anybody can create a blog at the blogger platform for free.

Paid Blogging platform


Not to explain much, you will need to pay to start a blog on the paid blogging platforms.

To create a blog on the paid blogging platforms, you will be expected to register a domain name which will cost you about $12 and also rent a hosting space to host your blog as mentioned above. Generally to create a professional blog on paid platforms can cost you about 40000FCAF ( about 73USD) annually if you read this guide and decide to create it yourself. To hire an expert like me, you will spend about 55000FCFA.

The main software (CMS) which is used to create blogs on the paid blogging platforms is WordPress found at wordpress.org. Take note that the WordPress software which is used to create blogs on the paid blogging platform is still the same wordpress software that is used on the free wordpress.com blogging platform. However the WordPress which is used in the free wordpress.com platform is the restricted or demo version of the popular WordPress blogging software.

The unrestricted or full version of WordPress which is used on the paid blogging platforms to create blog is arguably the best blogging application. About 60% of the Cameroonian blogs were created on the paid blogging platform using the unrestricted WordPress software.

Why you should create your blog on paid platforms like wordpress

The WordPress software is extremely flexible i.e. you can create any kind of website with the WordPress software using the available WordPress Themes and Plugins, be it blogs, social media website, eCommerce website, forums etc, without typing any code.

WordPress Themes are far more beautiful and sophisticated than the Blogger templates.

It’s very easy to master the WordPress software.
Creating a blog on the paid blogging platforms is as easy as switching on the lights in your house.

The good thing about these two categories of platforms is that you can migrate from one to another anytime without stress. Now, you know about the two platforms, and if you like to start on the free ones, I will give you the basics.


Blog templates (also known as Themes) are ready made (pre-built) designs of websites or blogs that you can install on your blog to give it a completely new look or beautiful to your test. Oh no when I first started blogging, I use to edit my blog theme or design to look beautiful in my eyes. This was a big error, your blog theme when editing, thing of the visitors, in fact after editing, ask someone to visit your site and give you feedback.
Creating your own blog is one thing and making it look professional is another thing.
As you and I know, everything about blogger blog is free but you can agree with me that, anything you don't pay for might not be the best.

Editing your blogger template to look professional can be complicated if you don't really master some css and html codes. To save time, I recommend you buy a Blogger theme or contact us to do it for you.

I will not go without given you how to edit your blog theme to look beautiful.

Before I get they, have these key things in mind:
 You are editing your website or blog theme to your visitors.

Some blog themes fit only for some particular niches.

For Google to accept your adsense account, your blog theme must be extremely neat, easy to navigate via.

When editing your theme at least three colors are okay.

I have given you the clue so let's get to how to edit your blogger template.

Login to Blogger, Select the blog you want to edit, top left corner.

Click on theme, you will see customize, edit html. You will also see back up or restore, top right corner.

Click backup, this will backup your present theme for security reasons. That’s if you can't edit the theme well, you can restore the previous.

Now, click in customize, this will take you to a window where you can do the advance settings. You can adjust colors, length, widths, layouts etc.
This will depend on you. From here I know you can create your own blog, on that note, let us do the practical work now.

CONGRATS!



After you have clicked on the Create Blog link you will arrive at the BLOGGER DASHBOARD as shown in the screenshot below.

To view your newly created blog, just click on the View blog link as shown in the screenshot below.

At this stage, you are already a blog creator, congrats. Can you call yourself a blogger?  No because you have not yet published your first post or article. The next thing is publish your first post. If you will like to bypass all the steps above and get a professional looking blog, hire me, I will not charge you much.

Before you publish your first blog post, let us first talk about the blogger dashboard.

It should be noted that every blog created at the Blogger platform is made up of two sections which include;
 The front end section (your blog) and
The back end section (also known as the Blogger DASHBOARD or Admin Area).

The front end section

The back end section



The front end section is what your blog readers will see when they type yourwebaddress.blogspot.com in to their browser. Your posts will be displayed at the front end section of your blog, for your blog visitors to read and leave their comments.

The back end section (The dashboard of your blog) is the Admin area of your blog where you will be writing and publishing posts on your blog, customize your blog, change the theme (design template) of your blog. In fact, your blogger dashboard is like the backyard of your blog where you will be carrying out your blogging activities. Your blogger dashboard is only visible to you (the owner or Admin of the blog) while the front end section of your blog is visible to every internet user.


How to switch between the two sections of your blogger blog.

When carrying out your blogging activities one of the things you will be doing frequently is switching between the two sections of your blog.

For example after you have written and publish a post on your blog (from your dashboard), you may want to see how the post looks like in the front end section. To do that you will need to switch from the back end section (dashboard) to the front end section.

To switch to the front end section of your blog, this is what you will need to do…

Simply click on the View blog link in your dashboard and you will be able to see the front end section of your blog.



Another easy way to view the front section of your blog is by typing the web address of your blog in to your web browser.


Blogger editor is the area of the blogger dashboard where you will be writing and publishing posts on your blog. The blogger editor is very similar to the Microsoft word editor program. So if you already know how to format a document in Microsoft word then it will be very easy for you to use the blogger editor.


Congratulation! You are now a blogger.


 At this stage I will advise you to write about 20 quality unique posts on your website then surprise your friends and family member, this will make them stay on your blog when they first visit it.

NOTE!

I used the word unique because many people always like to copy and paste at the first stage of blogging then regret after. Read 10 mistakes of bloggers on CAMABIZ
Share your first post on social media so that your friends and family members can know that you have become a blogger.

Now at this stage have you turn your passion to income?
Will you start earning immediately?
The big short answer is no
You need to make people know about what you are doing.

How to send quality traffic to yourwebsite or blog in Cameroon


For your blog to stand out or rang high to search engines, you need to send quality traffic to your website.
How to send quality traffic to your website.

After creating your blog and must have written and publish some good number of articles, you need to make your friends know about your work, you need to start sending visitors to your blog or website.

Before I get into details, I want to let you know that your friends might not be your blog visitors, some will ignore the links you will share to them, some will discourage you, but some will always encourage you. To cut things short, don't share too many times to your friends.

There are many ways you can send traffic to your website, it can be organic traffic or from social Medias. I will teach you in details the various ways you can send traffic to your website or blog. The main two ways to send traffic to your blog are organic traffic and social media traffic.

Let's talk about organic traffic.

Organic traffic is traffic that comes from searches. That is, if for example before you landed on the blog, you had searched How to send quality traffic to a blog and Google shows you this blog, you followed the link to this post and you are now here, this is what is called organic traffic.

To put it simple, it's traffic that comes as a result of people searching something on the internet.
This is the best form of traffic to a website because it comes from those who actually needed the information they were searching.

 How to send organic traffic to your site.

In marketing they say Costumer is King while in Blogging we say content is King.The best way to send organic traffic to your site is to:
Write good quality post: Good quality post can be a post with about 6 paragraphs and 500 words. The articles must be unique and have no grammatical errors.
When you do this, your post will rang in the first page of Google.
Warning: Avoid copying articles from other website.

Write articles frequently and consistently: You can write 2 articles daily, weekly or monthly. This depends on you.

How to send social media traffic to your blog.

Social media is one of the best ways to send traffic to a website or blog
When I talk of traffic from social media I would tell you with no doubt that Facebook is King.
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest WhatsApp YouTube etc, can be use to send visitors to a blog.
Facebook is the biggest place you can get visitors to your website.
I am writing this from my personal experience your own can be Twitter or YouTube for me my highest source of traffic from social media comes from Facebook.

How to get traffic from Facebook.

Before I go about talking how to get traffic from Facebook keep this on your mind.
If you are a newbie in Blogging, you may be so anxious to share your links as many times as possible on Facebook groups or pages. I bet you if you try it your link is going to be blocked by Facebook as spam and you will be frustrated.

So, this is what you need to do.
Create a Facebook account and page for your website so that your audience can follow you.
Create a Facebook group or join some existing groups.
