You can’t write anything without hosting and domain, exactly like that, you will need some item when you start a new blog and this is what I’m about to tell you. I have divided these item lists into two categories, one will have all the physical items and second will have all the items which you will need when you write the first article.
Before I talk about those items, if you’re new with blogging then I recommend you to read this article because it will give you some insides about the blogging world. Okay, so first let’s talk about physical items…
Good Keyboard & Mouse
Having a good quality keyboard & mouse is very important because it will give you writing speed and good feeling while writing an article. So make sure you invest some money in these items. Now, I have mentioned the keyboard and mouse which I’m using and some others as well.

You have a good website but where you gonna write an article, to do that you will be needed a good laptop and I have recommended Apple Macbook because it will last for long and it won’t hang too much, so it’s a good investment for blogger. So if you have money then do invest it in a good laptop, if you don’t like MackBook then I have also given some of the Windows laptops which is available down below.

Some of you may not like monitors but I love my Samsung 27 inch monitor because it gives me an extra screen to do some more work and it looks much better than a 13-inch laptop. So yes it’s good to have a big screen, as I have it’s not for everyone. I have a monitor because I don’t need but I wanted, so it’s up to you, yet I will provide my monitor link down below, so feel free to check out…

Hard-Disk and Camera
Hard-Disk is a must-have item for bloggers because storage where you can store all of your data, so make sure you invest some money in SSD or in Hard-disk. The camera is an option item, you’re a travel blogger then you must need to buy a good camera but for normal blogger its not that important item unless you love to capture movements.

If you’re comfortable while writing then you can write anything and for that, you will need a good table. First thing, don’t buy a table online, go to any store and see the tables and build a new table according to your needs. Now I’m not saying, you can’t buy tables online, you can but it’s good to build a table as per your needs.
Now let’s talk about the software side of things because it can make your writing experience very easy and simple. There is something which you can use when you start a new website, so let’s take a close look…
When you start a new website, you have two options to monetize the website, first, one is Affiliate Links and the second one is Donation Page, I’m also going to talk about affiliate marketing latter but for now, let’s talk “How you can apply Donation Page on website”.
If you have purchased a premium WordPress theme then you will get some Pre-Made templates, so here you don’t need to do much but if you have a Free WordPress theme then it can be a little bit difficult to make a dedicated donation page. So if you’re serious about your blogging journey then I would suggest you invest some money in a good premium theme.
Now to take Donation, you can use PayPal or InstaMojo or you can also use Stripe which is recently launched in India.
Affiliate world is well known and almost every blogger is using it on their blog but if you haven’t used this income stream then start right now because it’s way bigger then what you think. By the way, I have already written a dedicated article about Affiliate marketing, so I won’t say much about it, to know more you can click right here.
One of the most important things about blogging is planning because if you don’t know what you gonna write next then how you gonna run a website. So what you can do, make a plan and write down all the topics which you want to cover in the coming months and select dates where you want to start an article and finish that article.
In this way, you know what you gonna do next month, so you won’t waste your time in some other activities.
Now to plan your time, you can use Google Calander or make a diary.
Building a strong email list is very important for any website owner. For example, you have launched your first Ebook on Amazon, now if you need to do marketing and for marketing, you need to spend some money but if you have five thousand Email list then you can just write beautiful Email and hit enter and that Email sends to those five thousand people.
So with a strong email list, you will save money and you have your audience where you can share your thoughts and provide something new every week.
That said, if you have subscribed to our weekly newsletter then do it now because you will get Free Ebook worth ₹299 and some amazing content every week. Now you can use, Mailchimp or Optin-Monster to create an Email list.
There is saying “A picture is worth a thousand words”. That line is actually applied to the blogging world because now people don’t want to only read black letters they want images that can give them an idea about the article. So make sure to add some image but optimized image because you also need to rank a website in search engine.
So add some nice graphical images on your every article, if needed.
Social Marketing World
Social media is becoming very powerful day by day, so make sure you have an account in every social media platform and of course, be active on all the platforms. Now I don’t think, I need to tell you, how to use facebook or even twitter but you want me to talk about that stuff then do let me know in the comment box below.
That’s it for now, if you have any question regarding your website then do let me know.
