Build it with your interests and strengths

Obviously, you need to use your hobbies and strengths to develop the content and products you want to share. For example, I am an inbound guide from the South of Vietnam, so the main content of my site is tourism and culture in Vietnam. If you are a pet lover, you can build on your own experiences, using photos, videos to cater to the content that your site targets, perhaps pet care tips, pet therapy, homemade pet food etc.  
If you focus on things you have experience in and especially your interests and strengths, it will also inspire you to write more understandable and specific content. If you sell a product or service, you must be someone who understands the features, advantages and disadvantages, creating trust for your customers. This is a very important step in “how to set up” your own website.
