How To Get Started Blogging

Why Blogging is a Great Remote Job

Blogging is perhaps the best business you can start with very little money. Most new businesses require a significant amount of investment upfront in order to start.

For instance, if you want to open a restaurant, you’ll probably have to take out loans to pay for your first few month’s rent, staffing costs, food costs, etc. With blogging, you need $40 to pay for hosting and you’re off to the races.

On top of that, blogging doesn’t require the same time investment as most remote jobs. If you work remotely for your company at home, they’ll likely set your hours for you and as we all know, the standard is 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday.

On top of that, you may have to be on during those hours regardless of any inconvenient time zones you may be traveling/living in. With blogging, you work for yourself so you can make your own hours.
