What do you want for yourself or for your family? Are you ambitious and yet you feel that good lives are only meant for a privileged few? Now, blogging is for you if:
1. You are Short on Capital
How many times have people been telling you that one way to get out from the rat race is via owning your own business? But do you have the capital? To start a blog, you just need a pc, an annual fee of $10 for domain leasing, and around $ 100 for hosting. I don’t think you need financing for this right?
2. You don’t know what Business to Start
Imagine yourself as an ornamental fish enthusiast. How much do you think is needed to set up a shop catering to fish lovers? You don’t even know whether hobbyists will even come to your shop and whether would they spend enough to help you break even.
Start a blog….about goldfish, fighting fish, etc. After a year, decide whether the niche is profitable.
3. You have only the next DVD to look forward to after Work
We are tired and we need that relaxation after a hard day’s work. Unless you just want to lead remnants of what you are capable of, start blogging while watching your favorite movies.

4. You start to Feel Envious of your Friends who are Entrepreneurs
They have lots of time at their disposal. They send their kids to school in the morning and go for a dim sum afterward. A great life isn’t it? Don’t just settle for wishful thinking. Take action and start blogging.
5. You Realize life is Short
There is a saying in Cantonese. “How many 10 years do you have in your lifetime?” Take action ladies.
6. You can write Pretty decent English
You know when to use the past tense and when to use the present tense. In addition, you have a vast vocabulary in your arsenal to construct a decent sentence.
7. You enjoy Seeking and Building on your Existing Knowledge
When you blog, you want to share what you know with your readers. In order to do that, you must expand your knowledge…to the point where you start exceeding what you already know. Slowly but surely, you break the tipping point of your current efficiency.
8. You take Pride in Building on your effort
Building a blog business is difficult and the process is slow. The rule of thumb is to be targeted. Again I have to repeat this. Focus on your niche and topic. Try not to sway from your niche. For example, if your blog is named ‘ How To Blog ‘, don’t write about ‘How To Cook”. That’s bad for the user experience and bad for search engines.
Good news for you. I have got Mr. Shane Cultra of DomainShane.com to be a guest for the next post. The first step in making money blogging is to register a top-notch domain name and Shane would be here to tell you that.
