How do I Become a Webmaster/Blogger?

The Easy (Semi-Professional) Way to Become a Webmaster
Free Hosting with Publishing Tools
That way is not professional and the profit will probably never be enough to feed your children, but a good way to start and to see if you like this business.
You can use a free web hosting service with a free subdomain at a provider’s site for your first project. Some of them allow advertisements others just place theirs on your site and don’t allow you advertising. If your free project goes fine and you like the business, you can move the site to a paid hosting with your own domain anytime later, but keep in mind: the work you spend for that subdomain is gone then, just your content stays with you.
(For the pros: redirect 301 works partly, but not for everything).
At NaijaWeb, we use subdirectories for the user blogs, which makes it easier to promote your blog here than on a subdomain, and we would be glad to assist motivated bloggers.
The Long Way to Become a Webmaster
Study at a faculty where you get the basics in web development/programming, maybe internet marketing. Not everybody has the opportunity/potential to go that way, me neither.
(Ok, I got intermediate grade in web development and recognized the potential to create my own business).
If you have a higher education, you will find more profitable job offers than being a webmaster – for the first. In case you want to run your own business sooner or later, you might want to become a professional webmaster/blogger.

This way is based on learning by doing and can be started as a part-time business. Many of the most successful bloggers and website owners started their business as a hobby.
