Start Your Own Online Blogging Business

Starting an online blogging business is crazy confusing. There are so many pieces and parts that have to all come together, and it seems like every time you decide on one thing, you have to go back and revise something else to make it fit. 

If that’s you, the frustration you feel is normal! It took me months of trial and error to figure it out, and the same is true for almost every online entrepreneur I know. 

Suzi of Start A Mom Blog has created a free Blog Plan explaining all the working parts of starting and planning a blog.

Suzi’s Blog Plan and Blog by Number are the best instructional courses on starting a blog. But don’t let the title Start a Mom Blog fool you. The image below will take you to the signup for her free plan for any niche or blog you may want to start. Once you have studied this free course, I highly recommend signing up for the more detailed course “Blog by Number Course.”

Below are the tools I use to keep this and my other sites running. I highly recommend these products to start your blog or website. Testing all the tools and services, even free, takes time. But time is not the only problem. You are also putting your newly created blog at risk every time you install a new plugin, and fixing the technical issues is not the best way to spend your time as a new blogger. You will find only the tools and services I used in this curated list, and I can 100% recommend them to you.


They have a free plan for up to 1,000 subscribers.


What does the free plan include?

No need to invest loads of money or waste valuable time figuring out how to start your business at the beginning. All you need is a platform and the ability to grow your audience.

  • The Free plan includes:
  • Unlimited landing pages
  • Unlimited forms
  • Unlimited broadcasts
  • Audience tagging and segmentation
  • Sell digital products & subscriptions
  • Community support


I use SiteGround for this website. They flawlessly migrated this site and two other sites I manage.
