So you have read all the fascinating stories about Millionaire Bloggers , who are either making regular money through their Websites or ones who created a Blog, accelerated it fast and then sold it for great money on websites like Flippa . You are now thinking or rather fascinating about lots of cash, luxury cars, beach houses etc etc ,
hey hey but you need to stop and think about it in the way explained here.
There are lots of Website who teach you about How to become a successful blogger and their first Article starts with buying a perfect Domain, going for paid web hosting, buying those Plugins, getting that paid wordpress theme and you will be successful. Unfortunately it does not work this way. I am not saying you should not buy a domain or Hosting, which eventually you will have to do one day , only I am saying is your website design or those paid plugins have got nothing to do with the success of your blog in Initial days.
No matter how good your website design is , People will not stick to it if You do not have quality content. Please do keep in mind, no successful Blogger paid a single penny in the beginning stage. Its only once your blog has decent traffic , you work on other aspects to automate the process and add multiple channels of income around your Blog.
Every successful blog, once started as a Hobby, they never looked at it as a medium to earn money but to give information and add value to others life. It was only later they learnt that It can be converted into a full time Income. Be it MMAJunkie, Cheezburger, Perezhilton or even Techcrunch, It all started as a hobby to do some meaningful thing in Life.
So the Mantra is , Write, Write and Write Quality content, be consistent and persist. In the end its all about
2. Providing Value to others
3. Be Yourself and
4. Please please Don’t Run after Money
