  1. Hi Ravijit,

    As simple as these steps may seem, you’d be surprised at how many new bloggers don’t know about them. Many will just choose for the free platform like wordpress.com but they won’t have much success as it is very limiting.

    They also don’t promote their content and think that the gods of traffic will do that for them. This article is very helpful to new bloggers.

    Thank you for sharing!
