am infamously known for telling creatives that they don’t need a blog or website like everyone is telling them they should have. The internet is clogged up with worthless blogs and adding another is a waste of time if you are unwilling to put in the time and effort to make it worthwhile.
Starting your own self-hosted blog can be overwhelming and many don’t know where to start. There can be confusing information on the web or well-meaning people giving you bad advice.
Has blogging as usual ever worked, except for selling courses on how to make money blogging? It’s time we thought about the things we are teaching others about the world of blogging before we doom another generation to failure and destitution.
I don’t consider myself a blogging “expert,” but I do know enough and have over 20 years of experience. Do you know how often someone asks me how to make money blogging or how an average person can make money with a blog?
