You will surprise you that people today ask me, how is that you can make money blogging? Does starting a blog and writing content all day is all it takes to make thousands of dollars. Eddie, come on; if it was that easy everyone would quit their job and start blogging to make a living.
I tell them of course, it is. But it takes a lot of work before you get to the point to make that statement. Many of the investments and expenses are often overlooked while starting a blog. There is the hardware cost, the software cost, the writing, the SEO and even the maintenance cost. It’s not a joke to blog, but it sure is gratifying.
