When you do something hard...and are able to measure somewhat it's effectiveness and keep track of how you did it...eventually someone/s will ask, "How'd you do that?"

Yup. Folks are asking, "How'd you get this forum going?"

Getting it going is not as difficult as keeping it going. That's why I need you. Thanks for participating. Thanks for your contributions. Thanks for questions. Thanks for sharing your answers.

Thanks.

I'd like to start by learning how to blog. How often does one have to post a blog to be effective and get traffic? How many hits does a blog need before you can sell advertising for it?
Thanks

@shahin

Those are great questions.

The answer is a question - how much traffic do you want? enough to sell advertising.

If you are going to sell Google Adsense or something similar, you need a LOT of traffic = several hundred or more organic visits daily. To achieve that level of traffic, you need a big market to appeal to.

The sooner you can blog MULTIPLE times DAILY, the sooner your traffic will start ... as long as you are relevant to your audience and are writing well.

does this help?

Yes, thank you. But I'm not familiar with Google Adsense.

@shahin

Google adsense is an ad server. Don't worry about it yet.

First things first. Get good traffic from people really interested in your topic.

What's your topic?

I'm still wondering about what would be a great topic to generate a lot of interest. It's the hardest part of doing a blog. It must be something I know about and enjoy writing about.

@shahin

If you have interest, you can be sure others do as well.

Don't write about what others are interested in. Write about what you are interested in. And write about it so well that others become interested in your topic as well.

Hello!

@Belew I'd like to create a blog about nutrition and health and I wonder what is the best system, for example wordpress? because there are many options on the internet and I'd like to know your opinion

@ivelisl

Use Self-hosted WordPress.

Buy a domain name and basic hosting ... www.bm2hosting.com or some such place.

You can install WordPress for free. Their customer service is great and they will walk you thru it. If you have trouble, reach out to me via the inmail.
