Do you want to start a blog, but have little to no money to spare? Are you overwhelmed looking for free blogging resources? Do you know which ones will work and which ones are a waste of time? I know exactly how you feel because I was in those same shoes until just recently!
Since I had very little money available to start, I tried to stick to free resources in the beginning. I scoured the internet looking for help and quickly realized I had absolutely no idea what I was doing!!!
The research took me several MONTHS; starting a blog is not as easy as it sounds! If this was going to be my new career, I wanted to do it right.
I read TONS of articles and wasted hours upon hours with nothing to show for it. Eventually, I found a few helpful blogs (more about those below) and was able to start my blog.
But, if you are anything like me, then you want to see results quickly! Starting a blog isn’t free, and I needed to recoup my money as soon as possible. I chose to invest a little money (under $300) to get my blog supercharged and bringing in cash almost immediately.
Now I know $300 can sound like a lot of money, but how many other profitable businesses can be started with so little? Not only is blogging profitable, but with these free blogging resources, you can start making money quickly!
I’m going to tell you about 5 free blogging resources I have found to be extremely helpful. I will also show you an available upgrade for each one to help you turn your blog into a money making machine!
Five FREE Blogging Resources
Domain Name / Web Hosting: WordPress.com,
While great for hobby blogs, using the free platform wordpress.com does have its drawbacks:
- There will be ads placed on your site that do not bring you income.
- These ads may not match your blog’s branding.
- You cannot customize your site.
- Your site can be taken down at any time if you violate the terms of service (or if it grows to be too big).
- You do not own your site!!!
What I use instead and why:SiteGround
