I want my page to look something like this (using \documentclass{article}):




but I can't get it right, it puts my title on the next page leaving my first text paragraph on separate page. What should I do?

Could you please provide a more detailed (formatted) mockup of what you would like to achieve? It may narrow down the possible solutions. –  Peter Jansson Dec 9 '12 at 15:25
I have some text at the beginning of my article I defined \title{Naslov Prvog Zadatka} \author{} \date{} \maketitle and some text after this but when I compile it, title begins on a new page leaving text on first page.. –  Emir Dec 9 '12 at 15:28
This also works for moving my title lower on the title-page. \vspace*{...} before \maketitle actually moves the title now, instead of just inserting a blank page before the title :) –  Judy Dec 11 '13 at 18:40

\maketitle inserts a \newpage since the title is usually meant to be displayed at the top of the page. To avoid this, you can make \newpage a "no-op":


Placing it inside a group {} makes the change local. Here's a quick view on what the outcome of this modification is using a minimal working example (MWE):
