c) Premium hosting  Hostgator is the best. [NOT FREE]

Note:- I would suggest you to opt for BlogSpot if you have less budget for your site,but it has some disadvantages though it is very good for newbie. WordPress also provide hosting services with a great cms for blogging. Free hosting is not recommended as they doesn’t provide 99% up time also the loading speed is very slow.

Some people have this business intuition, they just get ideas for niches based on their web experience and they start like ten or twenty commercial blogs at a time and in most of the cases 60% of them are successful. But if you are not one of these guys then you need to focus. If you are going to write your own content then the niche should be something you like or have knowledge about.  Most of the people are usually specialized in 5-20 niches. Start with one blog as it is a strenuous job to maintain them all in the beginning. And remember – the more competition there is in your niche, the harder you will reach good positions in the search engines but the more visitors you will get once you are there. It takes 6-7 months sometimes to get to the first page of Google and that is if you are working with a SEO professional.

And hire a SEO professional and write some unique optimized articles on your blog every single day or thrice a week. Once you are getting thousands of visitors which is fairly simple with SEO techniques then you need to monetize your website and make some handsome money.

It is that simple. You can create many of such website or blog and make money.
