I have been a blogger for over 5 years, but I have actually really turned it into a business for the last year. I had no idea how you could turn blogging into a business until I started researching, Googling and learning.
I am constantly asked about where to start, how to do this and that and it seems I am always giving the same advice so I decided I would put it all in one place.
Here are some of the tools that I have used to learn and grow my blog, affiliate links are provided for you convenience!
Web domains and Hosting
For the last 10 years I have bought my domain and hosting through Go Daddy. I have never had a site crash or have had any problems. I love that I can constantly call them ask them a question and they are so eager to help and walk me through everything. Some people might disagree but I am only talking about my experience because that is what I know.
I am constantly reading up on how to improve my site, improve my cash flow and just improve the reader experience in general.
