    I found your video helpful. At the moment, I am doing research for the blog I want to start once we are settled. I know you say "don't wait, start now" but we are moving (to a wheelchair accessible apartment) in a week and I really can't take on a major new project right now while trying to close up one location and start over in a new location. Thus I am just using my rest periods to watch videos and read blogs to educate myself on the process of blogging in 2017 as my last active blog was over a decade ago.

    Txs for the post.
    I want to open a WordPress account but I've got some little confusion. I'll appreciate if u can answer, in clear terms these questions:
    1. How does WordPress differ from Bluehost?
    2. Do you necessarily need both of them (or just any of them)

    great advice and went straight to your blog too! I am finally going to take the plunge and write that blog and I really liked the advice about buying your platform as many other advice series say free blog sites are great but I was always a bit skeptical especially as they are not always the best design s0 will definately take up your offer.

    I liked your no b.s. approach…no inserts of happy and sad faces, no extreme emotive noises and trying to hype the viewer up by saying 'how much you're going to love what we've got for you.' etc etc. Thanks. Very helpful.

I wanna post creepy horror / weird stories, movie like that I think of but I dont know which blogging platform is best for these kind of stuff, btw I want my work to be secure and not stolen for any use without my rights.

    YOU DON'T NEED PASSION to be successful in a niche.

    I profit in two different niches daily without any passion.

    Profit isnt in passion it's in popularity.

    THAT BEING SAID, #2 to #11 are right on the money. 🙂
