“The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.” Robert Kiyosaki
I started this blog for two reasons. The first is that I like to share information with people to help them, learn, grow, and remember who they are.
The other reason was that I wanted to create an online passive income stream for myself.
Plus I love the idea of making money from my home while wearing my pajamas.
I already had over a decade of research and study at my fingertips, but didn’t have a vehicle to express it.
I had read many insightful blogs over the years, and learned a lot of information and tips. I finally bit the bullet on January 4th 2011, and decided to start this blog.
Earning passive income through blogging
Earning passive income is a get rich slow process initially. I can tell you that I have already earned money with this blog after the first several weeks.
The first week was mainly learning how to set up my blog. I use WordPress for my blog, and HostGator for my web hosting. WordPress is what you will use to design, write, and manage your blog.
HostGator is used to connect your blog to the internet. So basically you will be using two services to manage and use your blog. WordPress is free to use, but you will have to pay a monthly hosting fee with HostGator.
It doesn’t seem to me that the internet is going away anytime soon. With people’s busy lifestyles, more people are connecting with other people, shopping, and reading online.
The convenience of the internet, and the affordability of owning your own website makes it a great business opportunity.
As opposed to a brick and mortar business, an online business doesn’t have all the overhead like maintenance, insurance and equipment costs.
Read all that you can about blogging so you will be familiar with the process. Also check out some popular blogs, and model what they are doing. The more you learn from others, the easier it will be to customize your own blog.
Right now it costs me $8.95 a month to run this blog. As my readership grows I may need to upgrade my service with HostGator. All of the writing that I do will earn me passive income in the future. This website will earn me money 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
A blog or website is a great way to earn money even if you have a regular job. I intend to make this my full-time career ultimately. Plus you can also branch out with your blog into other areas.
You could offer public speaking services, consulting, and there are tons of good MLM opportunities online as well.
If you are a stay at home parent, retired, semi retired or just wanting to create an affordable income stream, you could benefit from owning and operating your own blog or website. Plus you can brag to all of your friends that you are a legitimate business owner. 😉
Let’s face the truth. Job dissatisfaction is at an all time high and unless you are one of the lucky few; you hate your job.
Since quitting is not the smartest move at the moment how about creating an easy and low time commitment business like a blog? What are you waiting for?
We all want to contribute to society in some way, a blog is a great way to do just that. Just pick your niche or area of expertise and share your knowledge and insights with the billions of people who go online each and every day. There are tons of people who would love to hear what you have to say.
