Hi friend, I’m John and my journey in blogging started in 2007. I had the idea to start a blog one day but didn’t know what to do. I turned to the internet but everything seemed to lead me in circles. So I created this guide as the resource that I wish existed when I was starting out in blogging.

Everything you find on my free guide is based off years of trial and error knowledge that I gained from blogging.

There is no technical knowledge required. So don’t need to learn how to code.

Are you ready to dive into the world of blogging and create a change in your life?

I am here to help you throughout the entire process so you never feel alone. By the end of my guide you will have a fully functional blog you can share with the world.

The blogging platform you will learn how to use is open source. This means that it is free to use for personal and or business purposes. Out of the over 150 million websites online, around 60 million of them were created using this same blogging platform.

WHY AVOID FREE BLOG MAKERS

If you want to start your blog for personal or business reasons. Free instant blog makers are something you should avoid. I have personally been there and can vouch that these are not a viable option. Here are a few reasons:

#1. LACK OF CONTROL – The webmaster of the service can close your blog for any reason. Since you don’t own the domain or hosting. All the content you create and post is really in the hands of someone else.
#2. ANNOYING ADVERTISEMENT – Nobody likes this but to pay for costs. The owner’s of these free services will usually place ads on your blog. Since they own the service they can place ads because it is technically their property.
#3. NO POTENTIAL FOR GROWTH – There is no longterm future with these free services. You will put hours of your life into making your blog look nice only to discover it might one day it disappear for any reason.
