I am planning to make a blog site of my own. Since, It would be my first one, therefore I really need suggestions n advice in this regard to successfully launch n run the blog.
Though earning through blog is not number 1 on my list, but I would not mind earning few bucks in process. That is why I have decided to purchase a .com domain.
Now, I have two routes to purchase a domain, either I buy it through to someone from my city dealing in websites or I buy it online.
If I buy it locally, is there anything special that I should keep in mind n should check about ? and If I buy it online, which site would you recommend me to buy domain address from? Should I use pre-paid UBL visa card or open an account in UBL permanently (for later use)? Should I make payment for single year or more?
Another thing that confuses me and I want to ask about is, will I need to keep paying for my domain address, every year and forever or will this end at some point.. after 5 or 10 years ?
Should I also purchase hosting along with domain ? Do I need it while I use wordpress for blogging? and is wordPress a fine option for a person like me, who is not so good at languages?
Once the Blog is up and running, which Site would you suggest me to go for ads, adsense or something else? Which earning method to choose? especially, Tips for payment routes and its procedure for a Pakistani.
Thats a whole lot of Questions all together. But, I really need answers to them, since there are not much help on these topics available on net from a Pakistani perspective.
mmm.. and If there is anything that I have not asked about, which you think anyone in my position should know about, then please tell it..
