How to create your own blog: step by step
Creating a blog by yourself is a good idea that we daily legit recommend daily for all our readers because asking someone to do that for you may be another challenge for you in the future. Let’s quickly make a scenario from Mr Samuel Monday King the CEO of the Success Way Media concept.
“ I’m Samuel by name from Osun State, Graduated from Osun State College of Technology Esa Oke, here are some challenges I faced when I started an online business”
“In 2017, I paid 30 thousand naira to create a blog in other to make some income, but after paying the 30 thousand naira, they asked me to pay another 25 thousand for Nigeria Adsense or 45 thousand for USA Adsense in other to make money on it”. You may not understand what Adsense means but I will explain that later
He continued “At this time, I didn’t have much money to pay for Adsense, so I started posting news on my blog for 1 YEAR till the blog expired
At this time, I didn’t give up, I decided to get another blog in wish I paid 25 thousand because I love blogging but anything you love to do that didn’t bring any income may collapse at any time” said Samuel Monday
He proceeded “After 9 months, Google gave me free Adsense and it is a great day, I started to rejoice that what I suppose to buy 45 thousand was given to me free of charge, Remember that I have 3 months left for my blog to expire after the 3 months I must renew it if I don’t want to lose it”
“I keep making little money with my Adsense but I couldn’t make 100 dollars before the blog expired So I decided to call someone who created the blog, to help me renew the blog so I won’t lose the money and Adsense, But unfortunately, when the guy saw Adsense on the blog, he has me to pay what I don’t expect. He said I should pay 35 thousand if I need to renew the blog. what a sad day, and I can’t renew it by myself since I’m not the one who created the blog”
I started thinking, if I started making 1000 dollars on this blog, this guy may even ask me what I can’t avoid or even block me and start controlling my blog. I decided to learn how to create a blog”
“That is how I become boss of myself, Now I tell you that I have made more than the money I spent today, I create a blog for people and collect my money I create this blog @ 5 thousand and sold it 28 thousand” said by Samuel Monday.
Now, you will see that, creating a blog by yourself, you will have full access and control of your blog in the near future, you may hire someone to do the setup for you but everything is still under you.
