Making money online is a challenging prospect to those with no experience. As someone who only started their own journey in making money online less than two years ago, I can relate to that fact. As such, I try whenever possible to address common issues amongst Leaving Work Behind readers in my posts. This is one such post.
I receive more emails about this particular issue than perhaps any other. It also happens to relate to what I consider to be the most important part of making money online (at least in the way that I have gone about it).

How to Start Blogging
I am of course talking about starting a blog and everything that is involved in the initial process: from purchasing a domain name, to getting hosting for your new site, to installing the WordPress content management system and publishing your first blog post.
In the video below I take you through the exact steps necessary in order to start your very first blog. Enjoy!

As I said at the end of the video, there is of course much more to blogging than what I have covered in the ten minute setup tutorial. However, you now have all the necessary knowledge required in order to publish content on your very own website — you don’t need to know anything more.
Having said that, I have no doubt that you will be hungry to further your experience and develop your blogging skills. With that in mind, I’d recommend that you start with all of the blogging posts I have published here on Leaving Work Behind. You’ll also find some related posts listed below.
And as always, if you have any questions or comments whatsoever, please do not hesitate to voice your thoughts in the comments section below!
