I began blogging in November 2009 as a means to market the internet business I owned at the time. I was told blogs are good for search engine trafﬁc, but that is all I knew about them.
As I continued to publish my blog and began my journey in the blogosphere I came to realize that blogs, while certainly fantastic for search engine trafﬁc, are much more than a mere search engine marketing tool.
Am often told how obsessed I am with small scale business ideas, no wonder starting a blog that guides business owners how to navigate around complexities of running a blog as a business comes naturally to me!
Blogs are outlets for creativity. Blogs inﬂuence people. Blogs are communication devices, educational resources and sources of entertainment. They connect people, spread ideas, foster friendships, sway political opinion and report news.
Blogs can be almost anything you want them to be, but what I came to experience as a result of blogging, is a new way of life.
Every day I indulge in a hobby and communicate with like-minded individuals, and best of all, I get paid to do it.
How do I get paid? I monetize my blog.
