This is the first thing you need to choose,you should choose such a niche for which you are passionate and you are well familiar with.If you’re getting confused among two or three niche and can’t decide which one to go with then we would recommend you that niche which is more popular,have large number of audience and quite profitable too,such as technology,blogging,health,fashion,sports,celebrity news,review etc.
Next thing is to choose the platform you want to use for blogging purpose.If you’re a non-techy person then WordPress is better for you than blogger due to excessive availability of plugin WordPress provide and if you do want to blog with free platform then blogger is better for you cause blogger provides more customization option than WordPress when it comes to free.There are also some other blogging platform out there like Joomla, drupal,webs etc. which are not so popular.

If you choose to host your blog by yourself then there are various hosting services out there,like hostgator, bluehost,even WordPress offer hosting service for their user,but when it comes to blogger you don’t need to have any host cause blogger doesn’t permit you to hot your blog yourself.
Next comes theme or we may call template.There are various templates available for wordpress or joomla within their system. Blogger doesn’t provide so large ranges of templates like them but you can get templates for blogger in various sites even in EXEIdeas.So if you are a non-techy person you can choose any of them or can hire any webdesigner to build a template according to your niche.
A tag line is really important for any blog as it represents the blog niche. Tag line not only helps you create a slogan but also helps you represent your blog in online sphere with more confidence too.
