As you all know, I’m a new blogger and I’m here to show you that you can start with just the basic blogging tools and very little money. I did a ton of research before starting and was still so nervous to actually begin the set up process. Finally, I told myself, “If your going to do it, just do it!”
Once I started, I realized I could learn a lot more through trial and error rather than reading a ton of stuff that ended up being extremely contradicting. One said this, the other said no, not this. It got confusing and frustrating all at once. Believe me, there was a lot of trial and errors when I jumped in. Still are at some points, like adding the Country Cabin Store, which I am still working on. It is up and working if you want to check it out, just not too many products yet.
It is also a lot of fun and oh so exciting to be on this new journey! I’ve had my blog up for a couple of months now and I’ve written some about making money with your blog.
Right now my basic (very basic) blogging tools include:
- HP 2000 Notebook PC
- HP Deskjet 2132 All-In-One Printer/Copier/Scanner
- Apple iPhone 4 (yes it is WAY out of date, but it still works and I can’t afford to upgrade just yet)
- Tons of paper, pens and pencils
- And last but surely not least, my Keurig! Gotta have that coffee to keep me going.
There are a ton of Apps on my laptop and on my phone that help tremendously as well. I very much want this blog to be a huge success so I treat it like a job, and one that I love! I try to be consistent with the time I “work”, like I would if I had a 40 hour work week and even the occasional over-time.
