How do you start a blog
If you are still with me and fancy your own piece of blogging heaven then starting a blog is super easy! First purchase hosting I use Siteground they have been consistently great with support just recently I spent an hour with them trying to sort out what happened with my blog when WordPress upgraded.
Siteground is the way to go if you are starting out from less than $4 per month you can put your foot onto the blogging ladder.
In my blog resources section you will find out how to start a blog with tips including:
- How to decide what to write about
- Which hosting company you should choose and why
- See how to get online in as little as 20 minutes
- Design themes to pick
- How to install Google analytics and Google console plus much more
I started this little old blog in November 2017 but never really got properly started until January 2018.
I signed up for hosting with Siteground and managed to get a fab deal for 3 years- less than $3.95 per month plus a FREE domain name ( I have since upgraded to Growbig plan as I have more than one website)
So Start your blog for as little as $3.95 per month with the hosting company I use and still continue to use.
Blog Income Report November 2019
So I last published my report in October 2019 to my email list subscribers and here were my stats for then and now so yeh it’s great that traffic has increased!
All the Income I have earned for this blog has been through affiliate marketing I don’t have Ad’s on the site.

I have included Income that has not actually hit my bank account yet as some payouts can take 3 months so just be aware of this.
I will itemise what has hit my account.
I can tell which Affiliate programs I have earned money with in no particular date order:
- Awin £31.55 still to hit my account
- Ultimate Bundles this program is my most popular so far $38.80 hit my account in December earned in November
- Amazon Affiliates $10.56 this will be paid out once I reach my $50 threshold
- Viglink $1.58 still to hit my account once I hit threshold
- Sendowl $11.90 and $26.80 still to hit my account
- App sumo £8.84 still to be paid once I hit threshold
- Momsmakecents $11.10 hit my account in November
- Topcashback £17.79 hit my account in November
Some of the commissions are from both my websites for these accounts
Because I have two sites some of the links are shared across them as in I can use the same link these include:
So one of the easiest things you can do is add Viglinks to your website you join up and add a plugin and a bit of code and it will automatically add affiliate links to your posts that you haven’t monetised.
It really is a great passive income generator you don’t have to do anything to start earning I can’t quite believe I am earning from them without much effort.
