It takes a lot of work to set up a new blog
Setting up a blog involves a lot of decisions.
When you start a new blog from scratch, your first task is to decide on the topic of your blog.
If you are planning to monetize you should choose a highly focussed subject area that will get you organic traffic from search engines.
On the other hand, if your intention is to start a blog that will be a hobby or a social project, your choice of blog topic theme is not as important.
There are many blogging platforms available for both blogs and websites. Choosing the right one for your needs is important.
But you should also consider whether your choice will allow you to develop your blog in the future.
