Blogging

It is amazing how quickly the world can change. Just a decade ago, no one had ever heard of blogs or blogging. Now there are more than 31 million bloggers in the United States alone. Worldwide, that number exceeds 100 million. It seems like everybody is suddenly blogging!

And why wouldn’t they be? Blogging is fun and exciting. You get to share your thoughts with people all over the globe, interact with many other people who share your passion for the subjects that interest you, and you can even make money by blogging. 

As you shall shortly see, getting started blogging is super easy and 100% free if you use a blog hosting site such as WordPress. Even if you choose to buy your own domain name and lease space on a server to support your own personal website, it can cost just pennies per day and can result in a steady reliable revenue stream through advertising, affiliate marketing and other business models.

There are no limitations on what your blog can be about. Any topic that interests you is fair game. And odds are, there already is an entire community of people who share your interests and will look forward to your next posting. Once you begin writing your blog regularly, it’s easy to get dozens, or even hundreds, of regular readers who will frequently leave comments and engage in an exchange of information and knowledge with you.
