Starting a blog can be overwhelming, especially when you already work full time, are a parent to small children and have a to-do list that never seems to end. To make matters worse there is almost too much information on the internet about how to start a blog. The thing about blogging is that it is a marathon, NOT a sprint. It is also not a get rich fast (or maybe ever) scheme. It is a TON of work. So, if you are not considering blogging as a long term project then quite frankly I would strongly consider whether you want to start a blog in the first place. But since you are still reading this I’m going to assume you really do want to start a blog . And I’m so glad. Because I love blogging and I love talking about blogging even more!
Amazon is a great affiliate for new bloggers. Just this morning I rolled out of bed to find that I had already made $42 while I was sleeping (not much, but like I said, I’m still new). It is passive income and it is consistent. Which means that I am making money no matter what I am doing that day.

I want to make it super easy for others to start a blog. So if you are an aspiring blogger like I once was, continue reading to see how easy it is to set up a blog of your own.
Blogging can be overwhelming and confusing for a new blogger. When I was just starting out as a new blogger I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I searched the internet for information for months. Then, I became overwhelmed because there is almost too much information. Who is a new blogger supposed to trust? Now that I have an established blog up and running I am often asked for recommendations on different tools, training, and other resources available for new bloggers. These conversations encouraged me to put together a list of recommended blogging resources that have been instrumental in my success as a new blogger (I will add to this list as I continue to try new things!)
