    Hi Alex
    Last night my wife and were going though you tube looking for videos that will help us understand the online world of blogging.
    We had been watching several videos and found that we were both learning things and getting confused. Then I came across one of your videos and was struck by how well you broke things down to help make them more understandable. (all be it with very fast talking)
    We found ourselves stopping the video and going back to pick up on what you were saying, and the names different websites and companies that you use or recommend.
    Today I have subscribed to your channel and notices. We look forward to learning a lot more from your channel and others that make sense to us.
    We have a few years on you and the technology is a very steep learning curve, but we are in-bracing it with a determination to be successful!

    When you describe the meaning of something it's best to describe it without saying the target word you are describing. This would be more understandable if you used synonyms for the word 'blog'. So I've worked out that a blog is just a text, sentence or paragraph of words/comments/info describing something on the Internet on a Web page. Is this correct?

    • Create and Go
      Create and Go  4 महीने पहले

      A blog is written content (generally meant to instruct or be informational in nature) on a website. We go into more details on the following with article, providing examples: createandgo.com/what-is-a-blog/

    Well it just proves to me the the word 'Blog' is causing confusion - otherwise there would be no need for this video. It also tells me that the word has different meanings and different contexts. There is obviously a need for new words to be generated so as to separate and identify the different uses. A bit like the word 'fruit'......'I ate some fruit', 'I like fruit', 'I hate fruit'. So you can use apple, orange, kiwi, cumquat etc to be more specific and separate one from the other. I am learning WordPress at the moment and the word 'Blog' is used in the video I am watching so I needed to clarify it a bit more.

      @Create and Go Thanks. But there are blog posts which could not be called 'websites' and there seems to be 'blogs; within a website ............?

      Blog is simply the broad term for a website that has regularly updated content. From there, it's broken down into all the niches.

      A blog is written content on a website. A vlog is video content on uploaded to either a website or video platforms like INclip.

    I felt that the part about Portugal served as an example of the freedom blogging allows once you start making serious money. True...it does nothing to further the question of how to start a blog and what is it...however, it does help to create motivation for those just getting started. Thank you

    QUESTION: I seen a few videos about blogging and I myself would have more then enough content to talk about since I have a business and in the process of starting a way overdue you tube channel, HOWEVER, there is still some in between the lines, you can say, info that is not being clarify about blogging. For example:
    You focused your explanation in regards to doing personal blogging (which I honest to God don’t understand how do ppl make money just talking about things they like).
    2. You mentioned about using platforms like Blogger to do so, how does that work? Why not just a regular website? How do new ppl get to see what you write and how does that create any revenue?
    3. I have a cleaning business for example and since it’s still pretty new I been meaning to start a blog section for a while but had no time to even research about and had other priorities at the time but now I really want to start with something small every week. I have the option to creat a blog section in my business website but how are ppl going to ever know that such blog exists other then going directly to my website?
    Plus I want be able to do a different blog eventually regarding a completely different subject, how would I do that?
    How will that blog increase the amount of traffic being sent to my website and what are the ways of making extra money with it?
    4. It’s creating a website that has mainly blogging content consider a Blog it self or is there a difference? I’m really confused. I will appreciate the answer to my Qs! THANK YOU 🙏🏼

    • Create and Go
      Create and Go  साल पहले

      Hey Francesca!
      Here are the answers to your questions:
      1) By affiliate marketing (commission-based work) and creating products that solve your audience's problems
      2) You are creating a website, but a website is stagnant. A blog is not. So, it needs to be updated frequently with new content. We recommend WordPress as our preferred content management system
      3) You would need to drive traffic through social media or search engines. Pinterest is a great place to start! You should start a different blog if the topic is starkly different.
      4) Yes, a blog about blogging is a blog.
      Hope this helps!

    You talk about blogging in terms of a business venture. How would you classify Peter McKinnon or Roberto Blake? They provide entertainment, and training. Selling a product or service is secondary. *8 Passengers* and *April and Davy* is about their family's life. They don't sell anything.

But why in the hell did this kid decide to tell us all about his vacation to Portugal for nearly two minutes? lol I don't get it, because the rest of the video was pretty well done, clear, concise and helpful. It's just that very first two minutes of digression to get passed. lol anyhow thanks dude... Cheers!

      Think about it. He was able to go to Portugal. How many people are place bound due to low income? Some blogging and websites generate income. Will the approach always work? Likely not and so what. For me a blog would likely a way to organize my thoughts and share them. I certainly would try to have links that give small kick backs for resulting paying customers who came in by the link. As I see it, for all thought and comments I've left all over the web, it would be nice to be rewarded for such efforts.

    Thank you for answering that question in great detail, which I was looking for. I'm an educator, writer, and technology enthusiast. I'm currently building my blog which I intend to use for writing about art, culture, and politics. I'm hoping to start by first getting my family and friends to read and respond to my posts and eventually, I hope, through word of mouth I will get more visitors. I have to say, honestly, that I'm not very focused at this point. I would like to make some money by blogging. But I'm not sure how to do that. I do have one Idea but I know it's going to require a lot of work, and I already have a part-time job that occupies about 30 hours a week of my time. I'm thinking about writing and selling ebooks on various topics, mostly about writing. It's just a thought. I'd like to know more about your story. How did you make the transition from working full-time to blogging and make a very admirable income in the process? I tip my hat to you, my young friend.

    • Create and Go

      We worked for many, many hours after our normal jobs and then we decided to quit our jobs prior to actually making any money to dedicate ourselves to the blog. After a few months and some hard work, we gradually began to make more money. The income reports on our site show the progression. Hope this helps!

I set-up a theme that displays an outdoor picture on the entire front cover, as I want to high-light our outdoor photography on the cover page, then you click on to the blog tab from the option's to open the blog. Do you think this works? Or do you think the blog material should be part of the cover format? Thank you for your consideration, and any comments you have! David B.

      No, we don't. You won't make more than a dollar or two a day if you don't have much traffic. Getting content up and starting to drive traffic through social media is a much better use of your time. That being said, if having that dollar or two a day gives you the motivation to keep going with your blog, then by all means, go for it!
