1. Build a Strategy
Obviously, you want to talk about your pet. That’s a good place to begin. But, what do you want to say about your pet and is it going to be a personal pet lover’s blog or are you aiming towards a more informative strategy? Perhaps you’ve had trouble finding information online and you’d like to share the benefit of what you’ve found over the years. For example, a new body of research is available for the use of CBDs in pet care. Since the average person doesn’t understandand how they act on certain receptors in a cat or dog’s body, you want to offer what you’ve learned along the way about this increasingly popular alternative canine therapy. In other words, first you need to define why you want to build a blog, then you can move on to the more practical matters.
2. Everything Techie Is Next
From finding a suitable theme to getting the right web hosting plan, there are a lot of technical issues to work through. If you’ve never published anything online, this might take some getting used to, but with user-friendly Content Management Systems (CMS) likeout there, you can have a blog up and running in just a single afternoon.

The one thing to understand right from the very beginning is that in the digital universe, content is king. Unless you invest heavily into paid advertising, most people will find your blog through what is referred to as an, and so if you rank highly with Google, you can work your way up to the first page of the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) and that’s how people will find your blog.
5. Begin Monetizing Your Blog
There is one other thing you should understand right from the very beginning. Although it can be fast and easy to set up a pet blog in just a single day, it does take time (and sometimes money) to keep it up and running. You probably don’t have time to take on a spare time job to fund your blog, so why not monetize it so that it pays for itself? Some pet bloggers even make a living from their blog – and a very good one at that!
It really is easier to start blogging than you ever imagined and you really can earn an income from it. The key is, how much time and effort are you willing to give? Setting it up and going live is the easy part. However, loving your pet as you do will make all the work well worth the effort. In the words of WordPress, “Hello World!” Here is my blog.
