In the middle 1990’s everyone started talking about needing a website. Now, the new “must have” is a web log or blog. While blogs can come in all shapes and sizes, a blog is just a very simple way to publish a journal, record of events, thoughts, ideas or whatever the author wants to write about. A blog sits on a website – whether that site is run by you or managed by a company that will “host” your blog.
A computer and an internet connection can be your source for earning income online through your writing talent. You have to find the right places to submit your work. This can make all the difference.
With blogs, size doesn’t always matter. If a blog has thousands and thousands of readers, that doesn’t mean it’ll be a slam dunk for you. Look at the comments section of the blog to see if people are actually providing feedback.
Flexibility – see how much I workout can be started and published by anybody with the basic information. This is because of freely available blogging softwares and services like RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds at your behest. All you need is to choose the subject for your blog and get going.
Some online blogs also sell ad space significantly like a magazine where payments are made every time the ad is shown or ads are displayed to get a monthly rate.
One main reason I say this is because any good blog that will help you indeed will have loads of great content to read. The other reason is that the person running the blog should not be too obsessed with cheesy graphics.
The quickest and easiest way to set up a blog (and it is free!), is to go to http://www.blogger.com and follow the directions. They say it takes five minutes. I admit that it took me a bit longer and I am still playing with it, but it is easy! Be sure to check out the many templates and also have an idea (or several) for the name of your new blog. Most of the common ones are already taken.
