  • WordPress is a very big platform where millions of sites and blogs are residing and due to a large number of plugins and other facilities available many people have chosen it as their first choice for blogging. You want to start a blog for poetry and naturally you will like to build a community of poets and visitors who come to your site regularly so that you can have a good traffic in coming times. So to start with what I would suggest is that as basic WordPress blogging is free of charge just like many other blog sites or blog platforms, it makes sense to put your blog there in free zone for some time till you feel the pulse of the visitors and the poets to whom you would allow to publish their poems in your blog or if you want to go solo that is also an option possible and in all these permutations the most important thing is traffic and once you are able to attract the people who are interested in reading and contributing poetries then you can think of joining some premium plans where WordPress will provide you many facilities and special plugins for expanding the horizons of your blog site. One should think of paying annual charges for the site only when a respectable traffic is built up and only then you can link it to some revenue sharing program like Adsense or some other likewise advertising site. If you are interested to know more about it you can just make a small blog site on trial basis in WordPress and they will give you all the information and tour of their plans etc and you can take a conscious decision after going through all that preliminary information. Meanwhile I will also advise you to read some good resources on how WordPress operates and what are its main benefits to the users so that your decision making in this regard would be more appropriate.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Starting your own venture is the best thing one can do. To begin with, WordPress is the best platform one can choose as it being the most user friendly as well as the most popular choice for most bloggers and websites.

    It is not necessary to make your own mistakes and learn, learning from others mistakes saves time and energy. So, you must keep in mind the following things before starting your own blog/website. I am assuming you also have some technical expertise in maintaining and setting up a blog.

    1. Book a good single word domain matching the theme/content you wish to put there on your blog. It is good to book a domain at the very first as later on when your blog does become a little popular you don't have to promote it afresh with the root domain. If you use a free blogging service then it would look something like http://ryyupoetry.wordpress.com but if you book the domain right away it will be something like http://ryyupoety.com. You can make out which looks better.

    2. You must know how to use the plugins available on WordPress to make it look more beautiful and more functional. Also, choosing a theme will be very important that suits your blog content. Many free themes are available on WordPress but paid/premium themes get better support and functionality.

    3. SEO and marketing is as much important as producing quality content. You must devote equal time to marketing and promoting your content if you wish to make your presence felt on the web. You may even have to do some paid advert to promote your blog and create a niche.

    4. Be consistent and follow Google policies thoroughly to remain relevant on the web.

    5. You can even monetize your blog later on if you are able to generate good traffic and quality content and earn for your efforts.

    If you want a hosting plan also for your blog then you can go for a shared plan which is cheap and provide enough space for hosting your content. WordPress itself provides hosting plans and that being with Rs. 200 per month which as of now is Rs 160 on offer. This hosting is for personal use only but if you want more features like advanced design tools, custom CSS, Google Analytics support, etc., then you can opt for a premium plan which is Rs 350 per month and on offer, for now, its is Rs 280 per month.

    I think both these plans are good enough considering your requirement. Do keep in mind the cost of domain booking, designing if not done on your own, and hosting plan as mentioned above. The yearly cost would hover between Rs 3500 to Rs 5000 provided you do not fall into some technical glitch in between and the marketing cost apart.

    Take note that when you spend some money you work even harder to recover it and make some premium above it. So, choose as per your spending capacity and your zeal to make your blog a success.

    Live before you leave.

  • WordPress may be a very good blogging platform and lots of companies use WordPress to form their official website. WordPress World has the most effective Self Hosting Login Tool. On WordPress, you'll be able to create two forms of blogs, Free and paid. Free WordPress blog may be created a bit like Blogger. But to form a paid WordPress blog you would like some things.

    Wordpress.Com
    On WordPress.Com you'll create a blog absolutely free. For this, you are doing not need any web hosting and domain. WordPress.Com works the identical way you create a blog on Google's Blogger.Com.
    WordPress.Org
    You can create an expert Website or Blog on WordPress.Org. But it's a Paid Service because to create a web site on that you've got to shop for Web Hosting and Domain. Only then you'll work thereon. All the massive blogger's work on WordPress.Org only. The cost of making a self-hosted WordPress blog is in keeping with your requirement. And it will be $ 100 to $ 1000 p.a. or perhaps more.

    I might recommend you begin a blog on a low budget and later add more features to your blog.
