If you want to learn how to start a blog, this guide will help you create your blog the right way!If you want to learn how to start a blog, you’ll want to use this guide. It 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

Getting Paid to Do What You Love? It’s Not Just for Superstars

It's not only the rich and famous that make money doing work they love. You don't have to be a superstar to get paid for the things you enjoy doing. Here's what to look for.“Do what you love and the money will follow.”

How many times have you heard advice like that? Do you think it’s true?

People have a tendency to hear that saying and think “But no one would ever pay me to do the things I love.”

What do you enjoy?

I suppose it depends in part on what you love to do, but I’d like to point out that there are people who get paid to: ski, wave at cars, juggle, talk, do Google searches, dance, eat pizza, sell, paint, write blog posts, take things apart (and put them back together again), knock down buildings, plant flowers, make breakfast, type, say hello, etc.

Those are just things I can think of off the top of my head — I’m sure there are some more unusual occupations out there too. So chances are someone will pay you to do the things you enjoy.

It’s a matter of figuring out what you enjoy doing, and how you could get paid for doing it. Usually that involves some trial and error, brainstorming, a bunch of hard work, and some sacrifices. » Read more

For Love or Money: What’s the Strangest Thing You’ve Done?

So I’ve got to know, what’s the strangest thing you’ve done for love or money? Just keep your answers clean please!

For me, it’s probably a toss up, because I’ve done several slightly odd things in an attempt to make money. The very first “business” I started — back in the 2nd grade — probably qualifies. I tried to sell shiny perfumed rocks to the neighbor kids. I’m pretty sure only one person bought one, but you’ve got to wonder what their parents thought. (“Hi, do you want to buy a rock?” or “Mooom, can I have a dollar to buy a rock?”) » Read more
