How To Start A Stunning Photography Blog That Will Make You RICH
to start a photography blog you must need these things !!
listed below all things are most important to start afresh photography blog.
that’s it, if you have these three things then you are good to go.
as you know before starting any photography blog you must need a domain (www.___.com).
I shared this article into two different sections.
sections about what you need to do before buying a new domain and what you need to do after buying a new domain.
so you can effortlessly manage your photography blog or website and it also creates less trouble in the end, wait a few minutes and you’ll know the trouble.
this all things are most significant because it’s all about time if you spend a quality time for your photography blogs then at the end you get really good and quick result.
Before Buying Domain for your Photography Blog
These points are very important to grow your website, yes you can’t see result too quickly, as I said before it takes time but believe me it’s the most important thing for your website.
if you want a short answer then WordPress is the platform which handles your website, using WordPress you can create your own theme or even find some cool themes and other kinds of stuff to grow your website.
First, find a good theme, make a prototype of your dream photography blog on WordPress.
when I started my journey for this site, first I searched lots of photography websites to find better design and prototype.
I found lots of different sites which are too good but speed is too low because those sites are not well optimized, so before choosing a good theme, first, see that theme is SEO and mobile friendly(responsive) or not.
learn basic SEO
yeah its little bit tedious but you must need to know this point.
if you have enough money then you can hire a good SEO expert but it’s helpful if you learn it by yourself.
Because SEO is the thing which makes your site more popular at the end of the day.

Make some pages Related to your photography blog
and read thereabout us, disclaimer, contact us pages and make your personal pages for your site (do not copy !!! ).
this is another important part of your photography blog.
these days social media is the best way to promote your articles.
if you write some really different and quality stuff then it must get social shares and likes without any paid advertisements.
Create Instagram, Pinterest, facebook, google plus and twitter these all accounts are enough right now.
it also increases the Domain authority of your site when you attach a link to your accounts.

Pinterest is the Golden key for my website because before Google starts indexing my pages I just published my article on my Pinterest account and I get a good amount of traffic and shares.

data from Google Analytics
traffic I get within 6-7 months which is totally awesome.

Capture some awesome photographs
this is another important part of your photography blog.
you need to capture at list 30-40 good quality photographs with some different locations and create some good article on how you capture that photographs.
also, some stories related to that photograph or which DSLR camera you use, why you use that DSLR camera and other stuff like your camera lens etc just share it.
and use some good tags so after 6-7 months you get good traffic (6-7 months ??? WHY ?? because Google takes that much of time to index your page (or even less time) ).
share your posts on all your social media platform.
once you post it on your social media accounts you get good traffic if your article is unique then other people.
these things are enough to get a good start.
After Buying Domain for your Photography Blog
you completed around 60-70% of your work and believe me, next steps are too easy to follow.
now you need a good and stable server to store your photographs or blog content.
buy good hosting. (for my site I am using Linux hosting because it’s good and very fast).
so if you are asking me then for my site I personally using HostGator’s Linux hosting with unlimited storage capacity.
after buying hosting…
if you don’t know how to install WordPress then follow this tutorial to install WordPress on your server.
The turning point
Normally most of the 90% people first buy domain and server then find good themes and create some pages.
these all things take at list 10-15 days and also after making a good website but wait remember there are no posts yet !!!.
that’s the reason I divided this article into two different part, now you have good quality pages with some great posts.
Wait a Minute… Here is the Big Bonus for you

then set up your website and just post the pages which we already created.
and upload your content with good CSS and images.
