Journal Online To Make An Income
It’s been a while since I have written any posts to this blog. I actually maintain a handful of other online blogs where I ‘journal’ about various aspects of my life. It’s a good way to take your hobbies that you enjoy, share them people online, and make a side income doing it.
In order to get started with an online journal and get blogging you need a website. In this day and age that’s pretty easy. In fact you can get a website setup and hosted for free over at Wealthy affiliate: click here to get started.
Setting up and blog to journal is going to be a simple thing for anyone who has a little word processor experience, such as using WORD, or for anyone who has spent any time messing online with social media. If you can handle fiddling with any of those two things mentioned above, you are going to have an easy time with your website and using Word Press (content management system that is the backbone of your website).
