I am not only going to show you how to become a blogger in 2019, I’m going to show you how to do it for free. And it’s not a scam and it’s not a fly by night operation.

It’s a legitimate way for you to start blogging today and make money online in 2019 (or not make money that’s up to you).

Are you ready to start?

Two Types of Blogger

There are two types of blogger - one that wants fame and one that wants fortune. Maybe sometimes the two can be combined but generally most people who are considering blogging want to do it for one of these two reasons.

Which one are you?

Do You Want To Be An Influencer?

Perhaps you fancy yourself as a fashionista and you really want to share your thoughts with the world about mixing boots and skirts or the colours purple and green. You may have a burning desire to help people feel better about themselves by learning how to dress beautifully.

There are plenty of bloggers who simply do it for fun and because they love to share their knowledge or thoughts with others.

Building a blog is a sure foot in the door to starting to build your brand as an influencer. 

Yes you will still need social media, but social media is not the be all and end all when it comes to influencer marketing and here's why.

For a start it is actually someone else's platform and they can shut you down at any minute. One jealous report of spam or nudity and bam your page is banned and all your hard work has been deleted! They may also have their own terms and conditions on what you can talk about on their platform.

With your own site you call the shots. You  make all the decisions about what will appear and how it will look.

Building an influencer brand is all about consistency, both of message and of aesthetics. You need to have control over those things to be successful.

Or Do You Want To Make Money?

So what if you have a passion or a hobby and you want to make money out of it as well? Then blogging is definitely for you.

The process of making money from blogging is called affiliate marketing. It works like this:

  1. You have a website
  2. You blog about issues or ideas that can help people
  3. You recommend a service or product that people want and/or need
  4. Your website visitors buy and you get paid a commission by the product owner.

This is the cheapest and simplest way to make money online because you don’t buy or hold stock, you don’t process payments and you don’t send out the product. You are paid for marketing the product or service and sending the visitor to another website to buy.

Sound simple enough?

So first things first you need a website.

Getting Your Hands on a Website?

It’s actually really simple to get yourself a blogging website and to get started making money online in 2019. I am going to show you the easiest and quickest way to get started, and as an added bonus you can do so for free.

The way I am going to show you is how I started off and I love it because:

  1. it’s completely free which means you can try your hand at being a blogger without any capital outlay
  2. there is step by step training to help you build your blog
  3. there is an awesome community for added support and advice should you need it

This is without a doubt the very best way to to become successful either as an influencer or as an entrepreneur making money from your blog.

There are 4 simple steps:

  1. Join up with the platform I am going to recommend (for free)
  2. Build your blog that takes all of about 5 minutes to set up (again for free)
  3. Work through the 10 lessons to get your blog optimised for the search engines (all for free)
  4. Start writing and monetising your blog (free but does take your time)

You might already have an idea about what you want to blog about and that’s great. There is literally nothing you can’t blog about and make money from.

How Will You Make Money?

There are millions of products and services which you can receive commission on. Even if you believe your chosen hobby or idea doesn’t have any products at all you can still earn money by placing adverts on your site and never market or selling a thing.

The platform I use and recommend will guide you through choosing the best products to market on your site, signing up for affiliate partners, how to get your blogs on Page 1 of Google, using social media the right way and so much more.

How Will You Know What To Do?

You need quite a bit of correct information to have a successful blog. Either a blog that makes money if that’s what you want or one that is being seen by hundreds of thousands of visitors if it’s influencer status you are after.

There are plenty of bloggers who blog every day and no-one sees their work. Maybe they just love typing and getting their thoughts out on the screen, and that is fine for them and they are happy.

Personally I like to reach my goals and one of them is to replace my full-time wage with blogging income so I can quit, be my own boss and life the laptop lifestyle. To do this I need a blog that gets seen by as many people as possible.

This doesn’t happen by accident and you do need to know how to write your blogs, what keywords to use, how to optimise for SEO etc.

The training I am suggesting will guide you step by step through each process so your website will perform the best it possibly can. It is all practical based so you learn and then you put it into practice on your site.

There is video training as well as the task based outcomes. It is an easy to follow process to get your site set up the right way, I'm sure you will love it.

I am going to try and keep this blog short today (I know it’s a miracle!) but you now have two options you can get started and build your blogging website or if you would like more information on how affiliate marketing works you can check out my free, no obligation Ultimate How To Affiliate Marketing Guide. Links to both are below.


Starting a blog has been the best decision I have ever made towards making me extra money and working towards being my own boss. I’d love to help you on your blogging journey also.
