One of the best ways to make money from home is setting up a blog. You will need to choose a blogging platform and WordPress is the #1 choice of new and experienced bloggers all over the world.
Why is WordPress blogging the most popular blogging platform in the world?
There are many good reasons for this and we will look closer at a few of them in this article.
Easy to use. You do not need to be a professional Internet marketer to use the WordPress blogging platform. As a matter of fact there really are not any technical skills needed to set up a WordPress site and add content to it. Anyone regardless of their current level of experience can do it.
Adding content. It’s easy to add content and publish it online with a WordPress blog. You can also get as fancy as you want by adding images and graphics to give your blog more life. If you want to set the publish date in the future you can do that as well. Some bloggers prefer to sit down and add one month’s worth of content on a free weekend. Just change the publish date to when you want it online and WordPress takes care of the rest.
Free themes. There are many free themes available depending on the purpose of your blog. These can be installed quickly on almost any hosting account. Many website hosting accounts have the Fantastico program which makes it easy to install your WordPress blog with the click of a button.
Paid themes. In addition to the free themes there are many unbelievable paid themes available you can purchase for under $100.
Personal blogs. Some people are happy to set up a blog and use it for personal reasons. They enjoy the personal satisfaction of blogging at their own pace and adding meaningful content without any monetary purpose in mind. Before there were so many social networking sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, blogging is a way to stay in touch with people. You can still do that today and add content at your own leisure. Many bloggers link to their social networking sites from their blog and vice versa. You can then monetize your blog in various ways including selling your own products or adding affiliate products such as Google Adsense which is the most popular way people make money with their blog.
Local business benefits. Today many local businesses are blogging for many reasons. One big one is when you blog targeting local keywords that are relevant to your own local business, search engines will pick up your blog posts and rank them. Google especially loves to rank these type of blog articles as fresh information for their searchers. This leads to more traffic to your blog and ultimately can lead to more customers calling you or visiting your primary business website.
Make money. Today many WordPress blogs are set up for the purpose of making money on the Internet. One advantage WordPress has over the Google Blogspot platform is you can create a static homepage so it looks just like a real website. You can continue to add content as you wish, but your homepage remains the same. Then add Google Adsense to your blog and make money that way. Google teaches you how to easily do this after you join.
These are several reasons why WordPress blogging is the most popular format for both personal and business blogs!
