Start a Blog

How to start a blog

Since I started blogging over 6 years ago I have learnt a lot of new skills along the way. I often get asked by friends how they can start their own blog. I have decided to create a collection of blogging related tutorials that you may find useful.

Blogging for me started as a hobby but after only 6 months I realised that it was possible to actually earn a living from it. Today blogging is my full-time job and I love it! It’s great to have a job that you actually enjoy. Blogging has opened up so many new opportunities and experiences for me and I generally don’t  think I could live without it now.

I really hope you find my posts useful and if there is anything in particular that you would like to see a post about please do let me know.
