Want to start a celebrity gossip blog and website? Sit, relax and read this guideline and most importantly, be ready to implement the ideas and suggestions.
When I first started my own gossip news blog, I made some initial mistakes and I was struggling for the first 6 months; however, I will share what was not working for me that time and what is really working for me now.
One thing you should know for the blog or website to be successful is that you will need to work really hard, invest and spend some money upfront before you can start reaping the benefits.
Four points you should know
- Have a solid plan
Draft out a plan, don’t just buy domain name and hosting. Take out your pen, bring out your diary, calculate how much you need to get started (stated below), the time frame to get back your invested money, how you will run the site, are you combining gossip news with celebrity contents e.t.c. be purposeful!!
- Make Research And Pursue
Make adequate research about this niche. To be fair and honest with you, if you are an entertainer or someone in this industry niche already, you stand a great chance of achieving success within the shortest possible time.
Because you already know how the industry works; it is also easy for you to grant interviews from celebrities, artists, musicians, actors etc.
Connect with like-minded bloggers and website publishers, go to events, music shows, interact with celebrities etc.
- Be the first to report breaking News
Running a gossip blog is all about sharing and publishing news, trends and updates in the industry. The easiest path to being popular and becoming an authority is being the first person/website to announce or publish a breaking news or latest updates.
- Monetize From Day One
Making money from day one gives you inspiration and motivation to continue; it also gives you hope that you can turn it to a career path. I am giving this advice based on my personal experience.
So, after setting up the blog or website, start displaying advertisements on the blog. Recommended money making company or strategies to use includes:
This is the easiest and most popular; you can apply at Google Adsense.
This is the best and where the real profit lies. You can join the following company: Shareasale ( search for related merchants and apply to be an affiliate marketer).
This is the best model; however, it takes time; if your celebrity blog is not getting anything less than 100,000 visits per month, advertisers may not want to do business with you.
Now, that I have explained the above points, let us get down to the main business on how you can build and actually get started.
The following are steps you need to implement:
- Getting appropriate Gossip girl website templates
- Getting the right Gossip blog name ideas
- Getting a domain name
- Hosting of the blog
- Configuration and set up
- Publish blog posts
- Promotion/Set up of social media
The following are brief explanation on each:
- 1# Getting appropriate Gossip girl website templates
The first step is to think about the design concept and how the blog will look like. I am recommending the use of WordPress software and corresponding WordPress themes. All what is required from you is to buy the needed premium themes, download them and install it. Examples of these templates include:
The above templates are just examples of design themes you can use for your project. You can get the above themes and more others at this listed types and also from:
When you get there, just type in gossip themes or celebrity themes; you will be presented with lots of different designs.
- 2# Getting the right Gossip blog name ideas
Name matters; have you checked the names of top leading celebrity websites and gossip blogs? You will discover that the names are unique, brandable, short, memorable and interesting!!
So, you got to be creative and come with a pleasant name for your blog.
- 3# Getting a domain name
People cannot just search for the name of your blog on the internet just like that. What you need is the domain name. So, after thinking of the name you want to use, you need to search for the availability of the name and buy it immediately.
To do that, I recommend you use the below form from Bluehost ( on using the form), if the name is available, I suggest you register the name as your domain name and buy it outrightly.
- 4# Getting webhosting for the domain name
When you use Bluehost to get the domain name, you are recommended to host the domain name with them because by doing so, you will not pay for the domain name again (it becomes free).
Bluehost is recommended bacause of its reliability, consumer satisfaction and fast loading experience for your website.
- 5# Configuration and set up
For the configuration, set up and all technical know-how, I recommend you check out the this post I published for that purpose (it contains video and full tutorial, it is important you read it!!).
