Starting a blog in 2018 Couldn’t be any easier. Things have moved on so rapidly that now building a blog is easier than ever. Even so we all still seem to hit a brick wall when it comes to blogging. So I am going to show you how to get started in blogging the easiest and best way in 2018 for beginners. So grab a coffee or a cup of tea. Sit back and relax and have a read.


Starting a Blog for Beginners in 2018.

So you have thought about writing a blog?  Year after year month after month. You have even tried with the likes like Wix etc and just could get to grips with none of it. You couldn’t find the appropriate help to help you get through it. Even just started you just got confused. So you fail and give up. Don’t worry I have been there too.


So all your dreams of having something more than your 40+ hours a week job. Just went out of the window. The images that you have stored in your head and dreams.

The extra security for your family you think about. Those extra holidays you want.

Those dreams of travelling the world. That beautiful wardrobe of expensive clothes all just went out the window too.

So you are still stuck in the same old rut. Every day your dreams just keep fading and before you know it a year has passed and then another year.

You are still stuck in your same humdrum lifestyle and your dreams of a better life are stuck hidden away.

Blogging for beginners. 2018

Yet deep down you now. You can do this. After all, you see people everywhere living a better life. Just go into Google and type in anything you want. There are millions out there blogging they are doing well at it.

They are living the dream and the laptop lifestyle. You know in fact it can be a big life changer and not just for you but for those around you who are most important to you. Financial freedom is accessible to anyone and everyone. Don’t let success pass you by.

I am here to help you get started.

Why you? How Can You Help Me? Are Heard you ask!

I can help you because I knew nothing back in November 2016. I now have two personal Blogs and I have 3 websites/blogs I have built for other people. They are all now a thriving business in their own rights.

I started out back in November 2016. Not knowing a thing with a head full of dreams. The only difference is I did’NT give up. Which is! what I don’t want you to do. I don’t want you to give up.

What Can I Blog About?

You can blog about anything you want. You might have a knitting pattern that you would love to share. You might want to showcase your Photographs. Even that recipe you discovered and it tastes better than all the rest of the famous chefs out there. You could still be in school or uni and have some great ideas and want to get them out there in the world. Even though your teacher thinks it’s useless. Who cares.

Everybody is good at something. There is just so much potential out there and with over Millions of online users, there is something out there somebody wants. Everybody loves to read stories of other people lives.

Gosh, we pick up magazines to read stories of everyday people and that’s a fact. So you can even blog about your own life. Good or bad.

It’s the way to go in 2018 everybody should be blogging in 2018.

5 reasons why you don’t blog.

1: You are not a writer.

You don’t have to be a writer. You don’t have to be H.G. Wells or Mary Shelley. You don’t have to be anything. When writing something in a blog write as if you were talking to a friend. Explaining something explain as you would to your friend. Just write as if you were having a group conversation even. It’s so easy. I too thought the same thing. I am not a writer. Well, I am now because this blog post will be over 2,000 words when I have finished.

2: You struggle with Grammar.

Tell me who doesn’t unless you studied grammar the ins and outs then you are OK. Don’t worry if you can’t spell. I am not the best in the world and I haven’t been in school for over 30 years so there you go. Struggling with Grammar and spelling is not a problem in the slightest. Within our community, we have a blind lady who writes her own blogs. So there you go.

3: You don’t have a clue where to begin.

Don’t worry either did I. That’s why I am here to guide you every step of the way. I will show you how to get started with your websites on how to Build that website on how to generate traffic and show you how to make an income from it. By the time you have finished, you will be like me and running your own Lucrative business. It won’t take you years. Neither.

4: You scared to leave your comfort zone.

Tell me who isn’t!! Embarking on any new adventure can be scary. That’s why we all start off making this our part-time business. We know when its time to lessen our hours in our every day Jobs. That’s if we want to. Did you now every other big businessman or woman always have a sideline to their business.

5: How much will it cost.

I am an everything on a budget kind of girl. So getting your Blog up and running will not cost you a fortune. I started out as I said back in 2016.

I have implemented every bit of training from Wealthy Affiliate into all of my Websites/blogs.

They are the ones who taught me everything I am today. I personally yet have to pay for traffic which I have never had to do. Why not earn while you learn too. So much better than banging your head against a brick wall for sure.

You can get started for free and test drive the platform at wealthy affiliate. It’s free for a whole week and with that, you can get two free websites. I started with Siterubix and just so you know. I was earning an income using the Siterubix Domain. Within the first few months!!

Or you can start with Premium the link is at the bottom of this page that is $49 per month. Your first month after your free week is $19

To go yearly it costs $359

That’s a massive saving if you go yearly. Less than 10 cents a day. Think about it where else can you get that and start earning almost immediately.

My first paycheck came in after 4 months it worked out at That’ss Us dollars. $4,82.98  £3.500 .  Canadian dollars. $6,230.77 I have since gone from strength to strength and I am earning on all my websites/blogs all thanks to Wealthy Affiliate.

If I can do it so can you!!!



Why not have something that can constantly bring in Money 24/7 365 days a year and its just a partime little startup you embarked on. Something that even earns money while you are fast asleep. Ye,s I have that and I love it. Waking up to a payment that I never expected is the best feeling ever.

Anything is achievable at all. So get out your dream list and get those wonderful images back in your mind. Get out your bucket list. Because from today as of now I am going to help you change your life for good and for the better.

  1. Hi Deborah. Thanks for this great article. You make it look real easy. So you’re saying anyone can do it. Make real money? Who will pay me then? I mean how do I earn money? Just writing?
    So what’s the catch then? In my experience, there’s always a catch right at the end.
    Looked so good first and then you have to pay 1000s of $$, and its not so hot anymore. Please tell me it’s not another disappointment!

    • HI, Goran,
      First of all thank you for your comments.
      YES anybody can do this and no it doesn’t cost thousands Wealthy affiliate Start at $49 per month I get paid by them if you follow any of my links.
      You too can get paid with affiliate marketing if you check out my other posts all the details are there too. I have also popped in a comparison chart and it clearly shows. That Wealthy Affiliate offer so much more and they are the cheapest by far. Their training is awesome. After all earning while you are learning is the way to go.

      Regards Debs Thank you once again 🙂

  2. Great info. Starting a blog is a great way to work your mind and give it exercise. It also gives you something you can focus on to keep your mind from going stale. I did notice you said something about a problem with grammar.

    Just like they have simplified building a website there are other tools as well. There is a tool called Grammarly that will even help you out with writing. Your writing will be corrected and you will look like you are a seasoned writer thanks to this tool. So really there are no excuses to start blogging except if you procrastinate. Plus you are offering a great way to get started.

    • Hi, I am glad you mentioned about Grammar. We also have a tool that we use within Wealthy Affilite called site-content. I shall add some content in about that as I have used Grammarly befor and it tends to slow my writing down.
      However grammarly is still a good tool to use as it goes.
      Thank you for the reminder regards

  3. Thank you for a very informative write up on Domain Name. Do you know that, this does not need to be dot three letters word again. The Domain Name Federation now approved something like dot london. So its like with this, the death of dot com, dot net, dot org is near. Lol. Just to add this information to your useful article.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Lanu,
      Thank you for sharing. I shall Look it up. Its always good to be in the know in fact thats what keeps us ahead of the curve and the competition.
      Regards Debs

  4. this used to me also! But if i can do it anyone can also 🙂 it was definitely a personal challenge to write and share. I was always more about writing facts and figures than the personal things…. Commenting on blogs also helps with sharing 🙂

    • HI,
      Yes you are so right not only do we learn so much more I love reading other blogs. I dont buy magazines anymore. I have all I need on the web.
      Yes all comments does help to enhance our websites. 🙂
      Regards Debs

  5. I like how you said just write like you are explaining something to a friend. That’s something I never thought of and a great way of looking at it.

    • HI,Tam,
      Thank you I try to write as if it was an explanation or a question I might be asked. It just makes for easier Blogging.
      Thank you for your comment. Keep intouch as I will be writing lots more info.
      Regards Debs

  6. wow, what a great article, especially for new beginners. I was also a beginner sometime ago but still i gained a lot from this read. I have many friends who have just started working with wealthy affiliate and I am going to share this article with them.

  7. I think one of the most difficult things for new bloggers is consistency and sticking with it when they aren’t seeing lots of traffic or lots of money. That can get discouraging. Wealthy affiliate has helped me with that. The community members give me feedback so I can adjust things and attract more people to my website.

    • Hi, Melinda,
      If there is one thing I have learnt is to treat all my businesses as a business and not just a whim or something I want to do every now and
      again. Consistency is key.
      It can be too the hours that suit you. I always feel that if you enjoy what you do then the hours fly by. For instance. I was upa t 6.30. Took the dog for a run and have been on the nest since I have come back in.
      Thats over 5 hours yet that time past in a blip.
      I do however multi task many websites. I am now in the process of designing one for a client. In between I like to keep up with all the training within Wealthy affiliate.
      There is always something else I need to learn. Bloggers never ever stop blogging thats for sure.
      All the seo training I have implemented in my websites are all done without PPC or ADWord as of yet.

      I have used all the excellent training from Wealthy Affiliate. In my eyes its the only way to go.
      What with there excellent community what more could any one ask for.
      So happy you are with Wealthy Affiliate too. Ill catch up with you on the inside.
      Kind regards Debs 🙂

  8. Thanks Deborah. Your article resonated with me straight away. I did try wix and blogger and I failed twice at writing a blog because there is so much to learn online and Wealthy Affiliate offers you all the inside scoop, and at $50/month, that is a steal of a deal! The community aspect of the group is the best part. I’ve never felt alone once and there are literally thousands of people that will openly share their wisdom and experience with you. I am so excited because like your article refers to, I feel closer to success more than I ever had, and working from home is not longer a dream, it’s a goal that I’ve put down on paper and putting the time in and see success daily. This is a great article, I’m glad to see you are supporting Wealthy Affiliate so people know about this incredible program!

    • Hi, Lyndsay,
      I think thats why so many people fail in the beginning. There is so much more than just writing a blog. I am not one to dis other company’s and WiX I did try in fact I tried quite hard and it was like hitting my head on a brick wall full force.

      I now however spend some time helping Wix users out They dont have a clue and I feel for them always.
      Iam in the midst of setting up a group on facebookfor wix users.

      Thank fully I am like you and Wix didnt put us off.
      Thank you for your comment.

      Regards Deborah 🙂

  9. Hey there Deborah,
    Really great post and lots of information I never knew and now I know. Looks like you spent tons of time researching and writing all of this.. You done a great job and keep up the awesome work. I know it can take some patients and time to write a great blog. So I think you done a wonderful job with all the writing and research you done! 🙂

    • Hi, Daniel,
      Thank you so much for your comments. Its great to get some feedback. I am glad you like my Website. As we all know getting comments helps to enhance all our websites.
      Thank you so much. Heres to your great success for 2018 too.
      Regards Debds 🙂
