What do you need to become a blogger?
To become a blogger, you need a topic to write about, a computer with internet access. Time to write blogs, time to advertise your blog, dedication and motivation to keep it updated and some money to buy training, equipment, software, materials & products. You will also need a monthly budget to advertise your blog. However, for this book, you just need a pen to complete the exercises, a calculator, a printer, scissors, glue and a computer linked to the internet to do some research.
Successful Blogging on a day to day basis is 10% of your time researching & learning, 20% actually writing blog posts & creating products and 70% Advertising and marketing your blog. Many unsuccessful bloggers do it the other way round spending 70% of their time writing blog posts, 20% searching the internet for answers and 10% dabbling in unstructured advertising. You need to understand what you are doing and why you are doing it.
