If you want to learn how to start a blog, this guide will help you create your blog the right way – so you can get started on your goal of earning an online income. And don’t worry, learn the basics of how to start a blog just takes a few simple steps.
Why Start a Blog?
Blogging can be a highly rewarding activity. Bloggers in every niche make hundreds or thousands of dollars a month through their blog alone. I’ll be the first to admit that blogging is an investment of time and creativity, but it has opened many doors to make money online.
Whether you simply want to learn how to start a blog to start a new hobby, earn passive income by recommending products you use, share your expertise with others looking for wisdom, or build an online business that will eventually replace your current income stream, blogging is an excellent option that can literally change your life.
You don’t have to be an English or Communications major to start a blog. The only two requirements are the ability to write clearly and have a passion for what you write about.
For example, if you enjoy woodworking, you can create a blog that shares tips with other wood enthusiasts. Your blog can also double as a marketplace to sell your creations if you want to monetize a hobby.
The possibilities are truly endless! » Read more
Visiting Disneyland is on the “must do” list for many households. It can be an entertaining and memorable experience for children and adults of all ages.
When it comes to budgeting for Disneyland, follow these pointers to let both you and your wallet smile before and after your trip to “The Happiest Place on Earth”.
Visiting Disneyland on a Budget
You can visit Disneyland on the (relative) cheap or you can do things up big, and so either way you’ll need a budget. Every Disneyland visitor has a different spending limit, but you can have a whole lot of fun no matter what. (Just be sure to get plenty of rest during your trip!)
Once you’re in California, your two largest expenses will be lodging and tickets. There are ways to save on those, and you can also save money once you get into the park itself. Here are some things to keep in mind when budgeting for Disneyland. » Read more
I love DIYing things around the house. I also love investing. So is it any surprise that I daydream about investing in a fixer upper?
I picture lovingly redoing older homes, and then selling them for a tidy profit (if I can bear to let them go).
There’s one big problem with that:
I don’t have a spare $150K+ laying around to invest in even one house. I can’t go out and buy a house nearby for cash, spend months renovating it in my spare time while it sits empty, and then sell it. No part of that dream is feasible right now.
It turns out, it doesn’t have to be.
There’s a completely different way to invest in a house flip, and that’s pretty great if you ask me. » Read more
I love to travel, so I always get sad when I hear someone say things like “I’d love to go to _______, but I could never afford that”.
I always want to shake them and say “Yes you can!”, especially when I hear the longing in their voice.
Instead, I restrain myself and just ask them why not.
Surprisingly (or maybe not so surprisingly?) they usually give me a kind of shocked, blank look before muttering something vague.
Challenge your assumptions
It’s pretty clear that most of the people I’ve asked that question have just kind of assumed that travel to faraway places is out of reach.
But it’s not, so long as you’re willing to be a little flexible. It’s true that it’ll be extremely hard to stay at a 5 star resort and eat every meal at the priciest restaurants if you make minimum wage, but that’s where the flexibility comes in. » Read more
