Also keep in mind to choose a niche that is profitable.Before starting a blog.Do a comprehensive keyword research and register the domain with your keywords if possible.
Choose blogging platform:-
If you are starting blogging for money then your blog should look professional and i will recommend self hosted wordpress.
You can also go with blogger which is free.
Use custom domain:-
Using a custom top level domain such as .com .net .org is very necessary because if you are blogging for money then you should have top level domain because ad networks such as adsense etc will not approve your blog if you don’t have a top level domain.
Learn about blogging:-
Regularly read blogs that give different tips about blogging and seo because if you want to increase your traffic which meane increase revenue then you should keep yourself update with seo etc.
