What are people’s “secrets” about working from home

You have read the posts of people who are claiming to make thousands of dollars per month or even week, and you wonder how they are doing it.  All I can do here is use the quote again from my home page:

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation,
hard work, and learning from failure.”
(Colin Powell)

There you have it in a nutshell! I have been looking for over 10 years for legitimate work from home on the internet. If you check out my comments under “Working from home” you’ll see what I had found, what worked and what did not work. (for me anyway)

At this point I am convinced that Blogging and Affiliate Marketing is the thing that works on the internet. If you are in a hurry to make money this is not for you! If you are tired of the rat race and are willing to invest some time then this will work for you. The good thing about blogging is that there is no start-up cost, no products to purchase and store, and no phone calls to make!:) It is you and your computer and much learning. I have found some really great websites where you can find help with easy to follow instructions.

  • The very first thing you will need is a domain name and a provider to host your website. There are a lot of Hosting Services available and you can just google this subject and read about them. HOSTGATOR was highly recommended to me by someone who has a successful blog, so I went with them. I must say that they have a great customer service and I can also highly recommend them.
  •  You can click on their banner here and go directly to their site, check them out, and then register your domain name and let them host your site.
  •  Once you have your website, you will then need a blogging platform. This is free, and again a site called WORDPRESS.ORG was highly recommended to me and I can only agree. Even though I have created websites in the past, blogging was foreign to me and WordPress is an excellent platform, and it’s free!:)
  •  I have found a website called ineedhelpwithwordpress.com, and the owner, Paul Taubman, offers a 28-day free course which has been a tremendous help!

You really have nothing to lose and a lot to gain, so I hope that you will have fun with blogging:) and in time you will earn money like so many others do.  If you have any ideas you would like to share with us here, feel free to leave a comment.
