LRS 086: Easiest Way to Start a Blog Today

Easiest Way to Start a Blog Today the lets reach success podcast

I just created a massive guide on how to build your own blog the easy way and with the best tools, and realized I never discussed that on the show. So here’s an episode for that on the Let’s Reach Success podcast.

If you’re familiar with the blogging scene already, own a self-hosted site and are now experimenting with different ways to monetize it and improve your brand, this episode won’t give you much information.

But if you’re still looking for a reason to get that blog that you’ve been thinking about for so long started, today is the day.

I’ll now walk you through the process of starting a blog and having your very own site in a matter of hour or so.

It’s important to do it for the right reasons though, and to know that stuff like that takes time.

But there’s no other way to begin your journey to starting an online business, or do anything else in the digital world, without first creating a platform of your own.

In the blogging guide I linked to you can find more details, but all that matters in the end of the day is whether you started your blog and hit publish on that first page.

So that’s what I wanna help you do today.

I’ll stick to the essentials in this episode, and probably cover other aspects such as marketing a blog and monetizing a blog in future episodes.

Let’s begin.
