Why I Started Blogging


The potential and power within a blog is valuable yet simple and inexpensive tool for getting your thoughts across.  Millionaires have been made, writers have been discovered and businesses have been built.  All through the medium of a blog.

Blogging can lead to countless opportunities both personal and financial.

With such a powerful tool combined with social media can create massive exposure unheard of before the internet.

Starting a blog will not only change your life but also help you to sort and analyze your thoughts and topics in a way you never thought possible.

My Story

After a long period of illness I started looking for something manageable that would give me a goal so I started creating and  running very basic websites and blogs and later on started a self-hosted website with Hostgator. and keep my mind off my depression.  That was when I stumbled across Hubpages that was when I started experimenting with websites and blogs.  I threw myself into content writing, using websites such as Hubpages.

As time went on I gained more knowledge, discovered ways to improve my blog and make it user friendly, customising it, along the way I was making mistakes and taking notes.  These were invaluable and meant I could go back to them if I needed to, that's when I started to discover my niche, which was "writing".

Along the way I discovered Google Adsense and Amazon Associates, to sell advertising on my blog and content writing pages.  Once my blog was created it was a case of maintaining and marketing my name online.

Everyone has there own way of making a blog successful, so "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again".
