I used to wonder why anyone would have a blog. Now that I’ve had one for several months I am playing quite a different tune. Having a blog is a must!

You would be shocked how many people write make money Follow me. Make money online is an interesting topic and everyone who makes money online has an opinion about how to do. Unfortunately, it is a very crowded niche. I have had more success by building smaller blogs talking about subjects that are far less interesting.
