Whatever you have decided to do, don't make any delay. I am not telling you because "blogs are free".

Before starts with your blog take some time and think about the title and URL of your blog. Use pen and paper to start up with a scratch. What kind of blogs are you going to publish? Is it for your Business or Personal ? What is the topic? Don't choose any topic that you don't know very much or you can't write a lots about it. If you can't find any topic, think about your interests, hobby, passion etc. Start reading various blogs and articles and gather information, knowledge, experiences about your interested topic.

And write your blog with your own words. Don't copy others, if you make some kind of copy-paste, you will get penalized by many sites. So be careful about that!
