There are a ton of resources out there for anyone who wants to start a blog.  Some are paid, some are free, in any case, you get what you pay for.  I am not interested in competing with any of those folks with a paid course, hell, I’ve probably purchased it and gotten great information from them.  I’m not going to regurgitate what some guru is telling you about how and why you need a blog, they’re probably right.  What I am going to show you is how to begin when you don’t have a clue. There are practical steps and there are thinking steps.  We’re going to start with […]
