Are you a space enthusiast like I am? Do you spend hours a day researching on life on other planets, does your room look like space, do you think aliens may live among us? If the answer to all this is yes, then you should start planning on starting a space themed website so that you can share your ideas and theories with the world. Don’t worry about the fact if everyone will believe it or not, there are always some people who may disagree with what you have to say. However, you will also be able to discover those who may have the same mindset as you do.
When I first started my very own space themed blog, I struggled a lot, so here I am writing this article so that someone else may learn a thing or two and benefit from it.
Finding A Niche
First on the list is finding the right niche for your website. There are so many things you could touch on when it comes to space but picking one main theme enables you to set a better goal and focus. You could talk about what you like the most, what’s trending or you could even start a research website where you come up with answers for things that people may have questions on. You also want your niche to be outstanding, by doing so you will be able to set yourself apart from other websites that talk on space and aliens.
Once you have your niche, you may want to brain storm on a few layouts for your website. Try to come up with several designs and pick the one which would suit your website the most. Naturally when you think space there are so many thing you may want to include such as the colour green, aliens, planets, a dark background with stars and putting too many of these things on website will make it seem too cluttered, so always plan several designs before actually finalising your website. If you are unable to do this on your own and if it seems like a difficult task for you, feel free to get in touch with a web developer as they will be able to help you bring your visions to life, they would also give you advise if they feel your ideas may not work.
Once your blog is created you may want to include a few sections on your blog that enables your visitors to engage and communicate with you. For example you can include a mapping software on your website. When you have an interactive map on your website, you can use this tool to show your users where you are and they can also interact with you while you’re n the move. This will make it fun when you are hunting down crop circles or locations that may have had recent alien sightings. Other fun ways to interact on a website includes comment sections, videos and pictures. Design your website in a way where you audience will be able to get closer to you.
Generate Original Content
It is very important to create your own unique content when you own a blog. So many people have different views when it comes to alien life, outter space and the planets. This is why it is so important for you to share your own perspective on these topics. Copying content from another person would just make you look unauthentic and you may not be getting much visitors to your site once people discover that your content is not so special.
These basic tips will be able to help you get started on creating your very own space theme website, also if you may want to sell space artifacts, space themed souvenirs or anything else; you can definitely use your website to do so, in some way or another everyone has interest in space related news and objects. I guess it’s because space will always be a mystery and there is always something new you can discover upon conducting research on space. Additional tip: know your target audience. This tip will ensure that you know exactly what kind of content to include on your blog.
