      Your blog is full of information. I am reading the blog and then decided to start a blog writing in 2019.

    • Thanks for this great information.

    • Michael says:

      Good reasons. Take for example some business project. Each project that provides services should have a blog in its arsenal, Google will at least praise you for it. For example, a resource (website) provides a guide to writing a research paper on its blog, which will undoubtedly become useful information for students. Therefore, in conclusion, I would like to say that a blog is an integral part of any business. And just if you know how to write interestingly, why not show it to the whole world?

      1) What are the foundermentals of blogging? Like a comprehensive but concise blogging course/tutorial.

      2) Which domain is actually free and/or effective? I’m just confused about the hype about WordPress being free yet not really free.

      3) Clear details on the technical areas of blogging such as SEO etc

    • Lynn Allen says:

      Thank you for all this great information and inspiration about blogging. It’s been on my mind for a long time to blog, but what to say. Recent events could provide content in abundance.

      My life has just gone from relatively secure to completely frightening. I have been renting a house with my daughter and grandson, and since October, my daughter’s boyfriend. Living with family for the past 18 months has been wonderful for me. But that’s all changing because she and her B.F. are looking for a house and I am not invited to come along. I’m starting over – again – at age 69. The emotional and financial roller coaster of the past week has been devastating, but this has undoubtedly happened to others. I will survive this, but wonder how I will thrive.

      I am a technical writer and still employed part-time. I’m thinking this new life could be fodder for a blog about drastic change and renewal, even in semi-retirement or full retirement.


      • Laura Tong says:

        Hi Lynn – sounds like you’ve had a rough year. Hang on in there and maybe starting a blog could be the turning point. It certainly was for many successful bloggers out there. Our interview with Jon Morrow of Smart Blogger this Thursday might answer some of your questions.

      I have been blogging for years. This year I want to invest in my own domain and take it to the next level. I am really confused about affliate ads, and just having ads in general in order to gain a few dollars from my blog.

      • Laura Tong says:
