in my recent exploration and travel in the internet, what really motivated me to learn more about internet marketing was it can earn you some money, not in pesos but in dollars.

SO i explored different platforms of a blog free and paid. Blogger is great for creating links and other articles creating backlink to you main site, but you don't have control over this. google can eradicate all blogs in just one click and you won't have any say about it. They are your mercy.

I explored other free platform, joomla and drupal but their interface and design is not user friendly. Then switched to wordpress that's when everything fall into place.

Have you read the pros and cons of having self-hosted and free blog? if not, better yet search it in google.

I too come uneasy feeling that I'll be using my credit card online as my payment method and dollars currency, just imagining the exchange rate will stop you from venturing and successfully starting your first blog. But my gut always tells me that I can do it, do not be afraid. Heck, if I can buy branded shoes then I can also buy this shtty webhosting and learn the ins-and-outs blogging thingy, this was way back 2008 or 2009 I can't remember exactly the date.

little did i know that this will come handy in time of financial constraints. some times I'll be short on my monthly budget then a project would pop-up. Some friends of my friends were asking for help to develop their website since before I'm asking their feedback on the site previously created. some sites that i created were sold, some were discontinued due to lack of interest on that field. This experience taught me well in which niche you will venture. Money doesn't matter always in venturing to any niche, its about the passion. If you lack and interest and will to do some research better stop now. Its not good and a waste of time.

Also take note I'm not a programmer or web site developer but my experience in my own website, in a self hosted, I can say that I offered website dev for some basic site that my friend is asking. Of course my asking price is much lower than the average in the market which is around 30k pesos for custom dev. my technique, however, is to use other premium templates (I paid for them) then edit/customize it to their like. Bwala! I didn't even touch a single to make a website. This is the power of self hosted wordpress site.

Also when i'm registering the hosting of my client i'm using my coupon code so I could earn another commissions.  Yeah baby  $100 bucks/sale. Easy money right?

The only problematic on my part is, I'm not a good writer. So I don't put up my own personal blog, so I apologize if this write-up is not making any sense to you. Opportunity doesn't show up when your not ready.

Lastly, the current sites i have right now and active is - a tech blog (not really active, seldom post updates [need a little help here]), an arcade game website (for killing time specially waiting in line) still active though and a pinoy 9gag version (active but updates is seldom [if your willing to post your funny pics i'd be happy to show my link]) :D

I wish i could tell you more guys but need to get home now.

Wow! That's very interesting! I'm glad that you have the courage to pull off something like that and made money, you've given me an idea, thank you for that.

Just an advice you don't have to initially be a good writer if you're blogging because there are ways that you can "ethically steal" blog content . But you should study copywriting because it's very crucial in the long run especially when you're writing blog titles.
