Hi. A lot of questions in the post there. There is some good info about how the blog in cq works here : http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/5-3/administering/social_collaboration.html#Blogs

It's very easy to use OOB and there is also information about how you intergrate it with pre-existing blogs via RSS feeds and so on.
There has been some changes between 5.5 and 5.6 in the blog (and some other social collaboration tools) so it can be good to check those out as well if you are in a migration process.
Then there's also (after consulting with the adobe support) some migration tools for you to use.

Good luck

 7 easy and magical steps to start blogging in 2021

Here are the 7 easy and magical steps to start blogging in 2021:

  • Pick a niche for your blog
  • Find the perfect domain name for your blog
  • Employ a reputed web hosting service provider for your blog
  • Manage and run your own WordPress blog
  • Find an eye-catching theme for your blog
  • Install WordPress Plugins
  • Write your first blog post and take it live
  • Start earning from your blogs

I have made a detailed guide of all the above steps to get you started on your journey on how you can start with making a blog in 2021.

So without further ado, let’s jump into the article right now.

Steps of making Blog in 2021 Step 1: Pick a niche for your blog

The most important part is to pick a niche for your blog. Niche means finding a topic for your blog. So, finding a topic doesn’t mean any random topic you choose.

A perfect niche is one where people have a keen interest in reading your blog, and also, you have a keen interest, passion, and knowledge to write about it.

How to choose a perfect niche?

  • Think about your passion, interests, talent and write it down whatever topics you come up with.
  • Choose the niche from a list you are passionate to write.
  • Think and find whether it will interest your audience or not. If yes, then you are ready to write and if not, then again go back to your list and find another one.

Finding a perfect niche is one of the first and foremost factors for starting a blog as it will determine the rest of your website’s future and also from where you will make money.

Step 2: Find the perfect domain name for your blog

The next step is to find the perfect domain name. A domain name is the URL of a blog or you can say the name of a website which users will visit to see it.

Few good tips to keep in mind while buying the best domain name:

  • Keep it short: Keep the domain name short. As short names are easy to remember and type.
  • Easy to pronounce: Keep blog names simple and easy to pronounce so you don’t have to repeat for people when you tell someone about your blog.
  • Don’t buy numbers and hyphens in a domain name: Number and hyphens make domain names difficult to remember. People may forget numbers and hyphens to add. So avoid it.
  • Choose .com or .net extension: Always prefer extension .com or .net because it’s for globally.

In order to examine if the domain name is available or not, you can use Bluehost domain, name.com, godaddy or other domain name suggestion features. Enter any domain name that you want for your blog and it will also show you available domain name suggestions.

Step 3:Employ a reputed web hosting service provider for your blog

After selecting the domain name, the next step is to find web hosting. Now, you will think, what is hosting?

Hosting is an online server where all files (text, image, video, and other things )of your blog are stored. Select the hosting company carefully as your data is a crucial thing that will be stored on it. There are many hosting service providers but I recommend you to choose Bluehost. Its plan costs $2.95/month only which is the best part of this hosting site.

Hence, It is the best one for your blog as it is easy to use, trustable, provides unlimited storage and bandwidth and has a reasonable price.

Step 4: Manage and run your own WordPress blog

Every website needs a content management system (CMS). It helps to create content on blogs.

WordPress is one of the top cms and is widely used by people. Most web hosts offer a one-click install for it. Follow the below-given steps to install WordPress on Bluehost:

  1. Log into your Bluehost account.
  2. Open My Sites on the side menu.
  3. Click Create Site.
  4. Enter your blog’s name and tagline. Click Next.
  5. Then Choose the domain on which you want to install WordPress .
  6. Now Choose the appropriate directory you want to install it on, and then Click Next.

Step 5: Find an eye-catching theme for your blog 

After you have installed WordPress, pick the theme according to your blog. WordPress has a lot of themes available, find the best one for your blog. Whenever you change your theme, your site will also change but your blog content stays the same which makes it easy for you to have a great design.

Step 6: Install WordPress Plugins

To enhance your blog’s functionality, WordPress gives freedom to install plugins. Through it you can add extra features on your site without having to code anything yourself. There are a lot of plugins on wordpress, be careful while installing them. Because if you install hundreds of plugins on your blog, it can cause a lot of problems later on.

Here I have mentioned the list of only those plugins which you should install from day one on your newly created WordPress blog:

There are many more plugins, but the above plugins will ensure that you have all the basic plugins installed on your blog.

Now, your blog setup is ready. It’s time to add the content to it. So, let’s move to the next step.

Step 7: Write your first blog post

Now start writing your blog from today itself. Your blog will grow only when you will start writing.

Few tips that will help you to make your first post an epic one without making any mistakes:

  • Use Grammar tools like Grammarly to write error-free content.
  • Whenever you write the content, use words ‘I’ and ‘You’ to connect with the reader.
  • Write your content in such a way that it covers all the details of the topic.
  • Add some images to your content for making your article more comprehensive. Try not to use images from Google, always use copyright free images
