Starting your first Internet business using a blog is a great idea. Especially when you consider the start up costs, which are virtually zero.
Having your own blog gives you the opportunity to ramble on about anything that takes your fancy, And if you’re lucky.
Your ramblings could end up being seen and read by millions of others.
Thanks to today’s technology you do not even have to write the content for your blog, it can all be done automatically. Blogging is fun,easy to do, and best of all its “FREE”
“OK, its time for me to give you a reality check.”
Running your own blog is not as easy as I’m trying to make it sound. some work is required. Sometimes a lot of work.
You can forget all that crap about blogging only 2 hours a day, “or is it only 2 hours a week to making a hundred grand a year.
Actually, it is possible to earn the sum that I’ve just mentioned above, doing only 2 hours a day blogging.
But for you to acheive this, your blog has to hit critical mass.
“What does critical mass mean?
Basically it means that your blog has grown so much that it is almost beyond your control.
Critical mass means that your blog has become so popular, you no longer have to pay for any advertising cost.
You no longer have to check on a daily basis. How many people are visiting your web site, because you know that your traffic is guaranteed.
And finally, you don’t have to worry, or wonder about.
If your website is making you money,
because you know that it is
If your lucky, you’re blog can snowball by accident, but in most cases it will require some hard work by yourself.
So, if after reading this.
You still fancy blogging your way to a fortune.
My advice to you is to treat it like a Business right from the start.
Don’t fall into the mindset of 95% of bloggers online.
Who only see it as a hobby. Taking that approach is a sure fire way to ultimate failure.
Just because you can blog for FREE.
It doesn’t mean that you should be un-professional.
I use a fREE blogging service provided by Google called Blogspot.
Which I highly recommend that you use if you are just starting out online.
You can get advice on how to get the best from this wonderful service by simply visiting YouTube.com and watching a few videos.
WordPress.org is another popular “PAID” blogging service that I use and love.
But it took me a number of years before I got the confidence and experience to blog consistently.
This is why I am recommending that you use a free blogging platform first.
You can make mistakes using a free service that will not cost anything to yourself except time.
I’m not saying that “TIME” is not important. Of course it is.
“It is probably the one thing that everybody in the world needs more of”
Speaking in monetary terms. I am pretty sure that you would rather lose time than money. There is a old saying “patience is a virtue ”
You need to remember this when you start blogging.
Because it will take a lot of time to make your blog a success, and even longer before you see any real profits.
But, if you Focus your time and energy into making a blog built on quality rather than trickery. You will be rewarded in the end.
