Sabrina: I’m not a writer. Writers are those who pen great books and stories like John Grisham, Carolyn G. Hart, Tony Hillerman and so many more. I’m just a person who writes about business on my business website and life on my Lifestyle Blog.

How much money can somebody make using this EXACT strategy? To be honest, I don’t have an answer yet. Using this strategy and my own 9-step Internet marketing plan using free methods, I’ve created several test Style and Fashion to see how much money I can actually make with them. This whole methodology came about when my friend Sasha asked me to show her how to set up a very, very basic online business that wouldn’t cost her any money. As a demonstration, I created my “Yoga & Pilates Lifestyle” blog while she sat right here and watched. On that first test run, it took about 90 minutes to get started.
Your first step is to select a blog platform which will host your blog. There are platforms that give their hosting services for free. Hosted blog platforms are recommended for first time bloggers. It is also a good choice for people who are not so technologically minded. They are easy to use. You just have to sign up and you can navigate through the next steps easily. Design templates are available and you just choose what you like. Publishing posts are also as easy as dialing a number on your cellular phone. But if you want to have more control over your blog, you can also buy or download software and host your blog yourself. With self-hosted platforms you get to have your own domain name. Your blog will also look more professional.
Open an account with a free blogging site. Or, if you already have your own website, download the WordPress software at WordPress. It’s free. And WordPress can be easily integrated with any website.
My advice to new writers: ignore or forget the fact that there are rules. Write as much as you can until you get comfortable with your ability to tell a story in your unique voice. Write regularly to discover what type of writing process works best for you: what time of day, in what type of environment, whether sitting down to a blank piece of paper or working from an outline. Get good at writing.
