How to start blogging with blogspot blogger


Before I would start my explanations on this topic i want you to pay attention on keywords because I would be teaching you basically what you need to start out your Google blog spot blogging, I promise to be detailed and I won't leave any stone unturned.

Before going into blogging it would be good I explain to you that blogging is something you must have desire for before going into it. Most people start blogging with the wrong mindset and with time they dump the career due to lack of passion. Must people start blogging because of the financial gains, most people feels they want financial freedom and blogging seems to people as a career with a promising financial returns, 

Most people venture into blogging because they see others making it big through blogging, because they see most bloggers acquiring luxuries and materials things they feel it's the next game to financial freedom.

I would advise, before you start blogging create passion for it, it's makes it easy and less stressful, you can build your passion for blogging first before you launch your first blogging site, take your eyes off Money because it might not come as expected or it might not come at all. It might require alot of effort to create cash flow through blogging. This is the sole reason you must take your eyes off Money if you want to succeed in blogging.
