Create your own blog

Majority of people have failed woefully in blogging why? because they went into blogging because of money .it's obvious now 97% of people coming into blogging are blogging for money ,sooner or later they will quit blogging once AdSense bans them.

People are quitting blogging day by day why?  they can't face the challenges in blogging and competitions .

What makes you a successful blogger is not giving up ,tackling challenges and competing with the best .
I have spent more than $1000 on blogging,have never earned a dim from my blog.

If you put money first certainly you will not last long,Google AdSense must surely disable your ads some day .

For you to make it in blogging,be ready  for the worse you may encounter low traffic,poor AdSense earning,no money for internet data,you may not have a laptop,alot of challenges to encounter.

I personally have been blogging for 8months now without making a single penny from my blog.i have AdSense but I decided not to place it on my blog now because I want to build my blog SEO first.bloggers nowadays are blogging for Google AdSense which is bad,they quit once Google disables their account hahaha that's blogging for them.
