HostGator is offering 25% off of webhosting for a limited time only.
If you would have told me five, heck even two years ago that I would become a professional blogger and webmaster, I would have laughed in your face.
I have always been an avid reader of both books and blogs since I got my very own PC back in 2000.
I have an insatiable hunger for knowledge of all kinds and blogs have been the easiest way for me to satisfy my cravings.
There is more information than your mind can handle right from your home computer.
Becoming a blogger is easy and cheap now a days, so basically anyone can do it.
All you have to do is find your niche. Mine is personal development with sub-niches of health, metaphysical studies, and blogging.
But you can have a niche about anything that you might be considered an authority in. You could blog about food, traveling, sports, computers, knitting, anything.
There are enough internet users available to support any niche website.
Another great thing about blogging is that it is passive income. When you publish your latest blog on the web it can be seen by people on the other side of the planet, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, even while you sleep.
When it comes to reading about personal development, I highly recommend Steve Pavlina’s Blog.
His blog gave me the inspiration and courage to go and start my blog. I am still an avid reader of Steve’s blog and I am also an active member of the Steve Pavlina Forum.
I definitely incorporated some of the things that I had learned by reading Steve’s blog into my blog.
After I began my blog journey I had to learn about things like RSS feeds, e-mail lists, SEO, WordPress, plug-ins, and a lot of other things related to blogging.
When I get stuck or have questions in these areas, then I check out my man John Chow over at johnchow.com.
John is more than willing to share all of his knowledge on how to set up and market your blog. John also provides his readers with some of the latest tools that you can use to improve your website’s performance.
I model a lot of my blog’s marketing strategies after John Chow as well.
My point is when you are new to blogging; do not try to reinvent the wheel. Model successful bloggers and do what they do.
After a while once you get the hang of it, you can branch out on your own.
My blogging experience with HostGator
Now blogging is my reality and it could be yours to.
I didn’t have anyone to hold my hand throughout the process and it was a bit of a challenge to say the least.
But now three months later after intense immersion in the world of blogging; I could help you to set up your own blog.
