How to Start an Eco-Friendly Blog in 30 Seconds with GreenGeeks
1. Pick a Topic
The first step in starting an eco-friendly blog is to pick a topic. You can write about anything!
Think About What You are Interested In
Maybe you are interested in fitness, cars, or crafts. Perhaps you enjoy movies, music, photography, technology, sports, or DIY projects. Or maybe you like to travel, cook, bake, read or play video games. Think about what excites you and what you are good at.
Whatever you choose, make sure it is a topic that you can write about for a while. It usually takes time to build an audience and a community. Your passion, knowledge, and enthusiasm will show and your readers will thank you for it.
No Matter The Topic, Your Blog Will Be Eco-Friendly
And don't worry, no matter what topic you choose your blog will be eco-friendly. That is the beauty of using GreenGeeks! More info on that is below.
2. Pick a Name
Now that you have a topic, it is time to pick a name for your blog. In our opinion, the name should clearly indicate what the blog is about and match the content.
Luckily, there are a few routes available.
Broad Names vs. Niche Names
You can use a broad name or focus on a niche. Broad names can cover a variety of topics whereas niche names are usually about one topic.
For example, this blog, SustainableBusinessToolkit.com, has a broad name. It covers a variety of topics related to sustainability and business. Whereas another blog, CompostGuide.com, has a niche name and focuses on one topic.
Neither is better or worse, they are just different.
Alternatively, you could use your own name for your blog!
For instance, some people write personal blogs about their lives or topics they are passionate about. These people often name their blogs after themselves (e.g., JamesClear.com or MonicaSwanson.com). This is an option for people who want to build a personal brand. However, there are other options too.
Resources for Picking a Name
If you are still unsure about picking a name, then ideas from the books below could help.
