The first thing a blogger needs must do is decide on a niche. This is an area of interest, something about which the blogger feels that he or she can speak with authority.

Bloggers give advice, make recommendations, and answer frequently asked questions they find in search engines and research tools that relate to their particular niche.

After a short time, a blogger can begin to monetize their work through commissions they earn when a reader follows a recommendation and makes a purchase.

You don’t need to have your own product, you can earn an income by discussing and directing people to what is available.

Toward the end of this article is a video tour of a typical start to a blog session.

Finding a niche

This a matter of zeroing in on something of interest to you and working out an angle that is relatively unique, so that you don’t get lost in a huge crowd of people saying the same thing as you.

A tremendous tool that will help you here is Jaaxy, which is available for free for Wealthy Affiliate members.

You put your self in the shoes of somebody looking for information, and what they might type into a search engine. This may be in the form of a question, a tutorial title, or an advertising slogan.

Let’s try “Best value mountain bike”

The Jaaxy tool is telling me that this phrase is typed into Google’s search engine 125 times a month and that listings on the first page can expect 22 visitors per month.

It also tells me that there are 100 other articles that answer this inquiry which is deemed great by the Keyword Quality Indicator. The SEO score out of 100 indicates the chances of high rankings.

This all means that this is a scaffold for the title of an article worth writing, say “The best value mountain bike: light, durable, and inexpensive”.


You have an interest, an angle, not too much competition, now all you need do is some research.

You gather some hard facts that become part of your presentation of opinion and review.

You then tell your story, in a personable manner, in around 1000 words, and publish.

A blogger is a problem solver

The beauty of being a blogger is that you aren’t selling anything, you’re just giving advice and have no need to be involved with any merchandise.

Essentially a blogger is a problem solver.

Wealthy Affiliate

The largest platform in the world that people blog from is Wealthy Affiliate. This platform has a series of video tutorials that will walk you through all the things I have discussed so far and much more.

Below is a screenshot of the first 10 lesson menu of “Bootcamp”. There are 50 lessons in total. After that, there are several other courses.

The point of convergence

Whatever you do, you need passion on one hand and hard work on the other to get to a point where these two things converge.

Getting to this point of convergence will open the door to success.

There are many things that have happened in your life, to set you up in the position that you are in.

You can use them.

Helping people has a reward of joy as well as financial.

A typical start to the day

The following is typical of my activity as I begin a blogging session.




Getting started is free. For seven days you get full access, after that, you still have access to several features, on which there is no time limit. This includes training. No other platform will give you this.

If you upgrade your membership within the first 7 days there are several bonuses. One of the owners will contact you and welcome you personally, and you’ll get a 59% discount on your first month’s subscription  ($19) – which is usually $49 US.
