Having a personalized domain that includes a keyword helps your blog standout from the other free blogs and it helps add to your credibility. Sometimes visitors to your free blog might not take your advice seriously, even if it is good advice. So having a domain can help build confidence with your visitors.
2. Jazz up your site with a customized banner.
If you really want to convert your blog's visitors to loyal followers, it is very important to create a memorable impression. Part of creating a long lasting impression is making sure that your blog's design is professional and unique.

3. Share your expertise in a fun and creative way.
The absolute most important thing about a blog is the content. Share helpful information that answers your visitors' questions. If you are comfortable doing so, share personal anecdotes. Include pictures and if possible videos to help capture the attention of visual learners.
If after a few months, you find yourself in a writing rut, invite a few guest bloggers to post. Guest bloggers are always nice treat for your readers and it is a nice way for you to take a day or two off from blogging.
4. Have fun! Blogging should be an enjoyable experience.
It is a great way to give back to the community and help others. So don't get bogged down, if you are not getting tons of traffic in the first 6 months or even the first year. It takes time to build up traffic. The most successful bloggers will tell you that it took them at least a year before their blog became successful.
