Are you starting a blog for your business?

No one should doubt the power of having your own blog when starting any kind of online business.

It’s definitely a powerful and effective way of letting people know what your business is, what you stand for, and how you can be of service in the big wide world.

When you run a successful blog you can obviously attract a lot of business, and create various streams of passive income, for example through affiliate marketing and advertising revenue, which is pretty cool too.

The best blogs are way better than the  static websites of old as they have regular fresh content that keeps visitors engaged and coming back for more.

But here’s the thing that I recommend if you want to start a blog today.

If you are not technical I really get someone else to set it up for you.

Honestly I learned the hard way that jumping in there and trying to work it all out yourself can be a royal pain in the butt.

Sure I’ve picked a cool Genesis theme, that is mobile responsive and SEO optimised so more people will find it in the search engines.

Yes I know my way around Adobe Photoshop so I can throw some graphics and images together. Sure I have a good idea of how i want it to look, but heck I just spend hours trying to get my head around what I thought was going to be a very simple set up process.

A few Google searches later on how to set up my WordPress theme, and I’m wading through lines of CSS and HTML code!

Aargh NO!

All because I wanted to do it myself.

Well time is money and this is a waste of time.

Honestly unless you are really on top of the technicalities I would suggest you concentrate on steering clear of being the WordPress hero and just go to an expert on one of these sites:
