After blogging for 8 years, I started this blog in 2016 with the intention of showing people how to start their own blog, how to make money online, and how to use blogging as an essential part of your business strategy. Since then, thousands of viewers have read the posts and I have received hundreds of comments from thankful viewers who were able to start their blogs easily.
I know that the internet is fulled with tons of blog posts about blogging, and many of the posts don’t give enough information, are too technical and hard to understand, or contradict what you read on another post. That’s why I put together this easy reference page with the most popular and useful blog posts – all on one page for you to bookmark and easily reference! I hope this post will save you time and energy, and help you start your own blogging journey.
