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".
