Ok, so you have decided, for whatever reason, that you are going to embark on the journey of blogging. Or, perhaps you simply want to see how this whole system works. For myself, it is a combination of many different things. I need to tell these stories because I cannot hold them in. I also know how frustrating it was to look towards the entire world wide web and not be able to get clear answers to some very basic questions. Plus, I am not going to lie, as I already work from home, I am always looking for a way to expand my income without the need to actually change out of my pajamas! As far as the reasons to blog, I suppose I hit about all of them to some degree so the why is nowhere near as important as the what. To this point, I have read numerous “how to” blogs on blogging. I have reviewed countless blogs to look at format and categories. I learned the difference between categories and tags (broad versus specific), I found how to start this free wordpress blog, and I have composed my first blog. It is important to note that, although this blog is free, I have discovered that there is some truth to the limitations on free sites and that, once I have mastered the format and began to monetize, it will be necessary to use of hosting service such as Bluehost which, from my reviews, appears to be the most highly recommended service. I will keep you all updated once I reach this point in my journey and let you know how the transition went. Of course, please feel free to provide any suggestions as this is not a journey of one.
