Start Your Own Blog – part 1

If you have a blog or website and you want to use it to generate part-time or full-time income, this series is for you.

If you’re wanting to learn how to clog, you made a typo when searching Google, this series isn’t for you.

I’ve been asked several times over the years to help someone setup their own blog or website. For many people this can seem like a daunting process. While you certainly don’t have to be a genius to install, customize and manage your own blog, it can seem very intimidating to anyone not familiar with the technical side of the Internet.

I grew up during the computer age of the 70s and 80s. I got my first computer, a Commodore Vic-20, when I was 12 and haven’t stopped using one since.

I’ve noticed that people who began using computers at a young age have no fear of experimenting and learning by trial and error. For me, this has always been the best way to learn anything computer related. When using the trial and error method you learn more from your mistakes than you do your successes. If you read a computer book it shows you the correct way to complete a particular task. Yeah, you learned how to do that task, but you didn’t learn other techniques along the way from making mistakes. Those mistakes may not have helped with the task at hand but through a process of cause and affect you learned techniques that may help with other projects in the future.

Even though I’m going to provide you with a step by step guide to blogging and monetizing your blog, I challenge you to step outside the process outlined here and experiment. I’ll give you some tips along the way on how to do that without compromising the work you’ve already done.

If at anytime you have questions stop by the Forums and post your question in the Blogging section.
