First, identify what you want to blog about, second research on other bloggers with similar content to help you identify the best ways to present your articles and thirdly begin writing and sharing with those who know you first. The feedback received will help you identify what is working and what needs improving, once you have identified your style then confidently begin to share your blog articles on all social media forums.

Bonus Tip: Pay for the domain name for your site so all your writing royalties earned mainly go back to you and if it grows bigger you can be able to sell it off. Get in the habit of collaborating with other bloggers, because the cross promotion could very well lead you to attract their followers to become part of your fanbase. You could be the next big Kenyan Blogger, like Joy Kendi who’s blog has led her to partner with brands like Samsung, Ciroc and Dior Makeup.
