Okay, here we go. The journey is set to begin. I take a deep breath … and jump in … I’ve taken my first steps toward making money with an online business by using blogging.
That’s kind of how I felt when I first came to the internet with the hopes of making money on the internet with blogging. For one thing, I didn’t know the first thing about blogging and was more than a little confused about how to do it successfully.
Thankfully, I found a program called Blogging for Riches which not only walked me through the basics, but helped me with the more advanced topics of using plugins, social networking and how to "monetize" your site.
Another resource I’ve found extremely helpful is a site called Niche Blog Marketing at Blueskybrothers.com. I check there regularly to find updated tips and tricks on how to use my blog more effectively. One of the site’s owners, Greg Meares, has tons of experience and willingly shares a lot of his secrets.
One of the things I want do with this blog is to record my journey of the things I’m learning as I go along. I used to be a teacher and one of the most significant things I learned through that experience is that the best way to learn anything is to write it down.
So that’s what I’ll be doing here. I’ll be sharing my experiences, including my victories and my frustrations, as I go through here and try to understand everything better. I welcome your comments and your questions as we go along. In fact, I look forward to them. Hopefully we can learn from each other.
And so we’re off … Wish me luck and … even better, come back to visit to say hello.
All the Best,
Tim "the big hula monkey"
