Give advice to someone who wants to start blogging:
1-Start your Blogging website self-hosted because It can be a big hassle to achieve your Blogging goals, eg; If your primary goal is to earn money so you can’t join Skimlinks and Izea because they need self-hosted website.
2-Engage as much as you can by joining other Bloggers online (Facebook groups helps a lot) to exchange ideas and support each other.
