According to my terms blogging means using a website or software means to express what you know or whatever you wish to say. For example : WordPress is considered as the best blogging platform and we bloggers use it to express our views in the form of articles of our interest.
The initial step involves setting up a blog. We would suggest you to choose WordPress. Then comes the big point of choosing domain name and hosting. Choose the best available domain name based on niche on which you are going to write stuff. And then look for cheap and best web hosting available to you.

Niche is the main category or your primary domain on which you will be going to write stuff. Niche based blogging is considered very good as you drive your concentration in learning a subject thoroughly then implementing it to your articles.
It is not that you cannot pick more than one topic but the main question is you should be able to write sufficient stuff on whatever niche you wish to choose. For example if you have lots of experience with Google Adwords or Online Marketing you can choose a niche based on that and start adding your views in the form of articles.
