Blogging Your Way to Financial Freedom

Blogging your way to financial freedom. Is it really possible? Personally, I’m rather sceptical. Unless you’re giving full-time attention to it and have a vast network of blogs and websites, then it’s hard I reckon. It’s possible, but it’s hard.

Being a blogger is just another job. You can create some side income with it like what Kenny Sia and a few others have done but I doubt that one can classify that as a passive income. It’s not really an investment-like venture. The reason is that if one neglects his blog, not much money can be made. Also, a lot of efforts need to be put to market your blog. Blogging professionally is more business-like I think.

Blogging as a Business? What’s a blog anyway?

Blogging is one of the things that I actually enjoy doing. It has been an interesting journey so far. Apart from sharing ideas and thoughts, I also hope to earn some side income from my blog to keep me going. I treat my blog as a business.

Anyway, what’s a blog?

A blog, or a weblog is a website maintained by a person called the blogger. He/she posts interesting materials, his/her journal entries, pictures, videos, and more. Visitors are also usually able to leave comments and share their thoughts on the blog. I guess I can say that a blog is a more humanised version of a website. You are able to interact with people on a blog.

How to blog?

A blogger uses a blogging platform to maintain his/her blog. He uploads posts, materials, pictures, videos, musics and loads more through the blogging platform.

Blogging Platforms available out there?

There are many out there but I think the two common ones are WordPress and Blogger (Blogspot).

A wordpress blog’s URL is usually in the format of NAME.wordpress.com while a blogspot’s blog is in the form of NAME.blogspot.com.

Sometimes, people use either one of this blogging platforms and couple them with their own domain names. That”s when you are able to get something like www.nadlique.com to go with your blog. Unfortunately, this costs money. You’ll be spending on domain names as well as web hosting.

Recommended Reading(s)

A really good book that I’d recommend is Start Your Own Blogging Business by Entrepreneur Press and J.S. McDougall . This is the book that got me going the first time around.

In the future, we’ll look at things like how to profit from your blog and how to market your blog.

Should I change my blog theme?

I have been using the current theme since the blog came into existence close to 2 years ago. I am starting to get bored of the blue bird at the top there.

Should I change to a new one? Hmmm…

For those who have changed blog themes before, how easy was it to change over everything?

I’ve made some significant changes to the current theme and to transport that over to the new one will take a pretty long time I suppose. The word lazy comes to mind đŸ˜€

Anyway, I’ll scout for some nice blog themes first.

Siri Klik Untuk Kaya: Blog, Blogger, Blogging (Rosli Jamal)

Title: Siri Klik Untuk Kaya: Blog, Blogger, Blogging
Author: Rosli Jamal
ISBN: 983-2334-83-7
Number of pages: approximately 208 pages

This is another book on blogging written in Bahasa Melayu by Malaysia’s very own Rosli Jamal.

The book is rather basic, in a sense that it pretty much covers the same thing as what other similar books for bloggers-to-be covers. I guess, main advantage is that it is in Bahasa Melayu. Definitely a plus point for folks whose first language is not English.
