If you want to start your own web blog or business, there are tons of outstanding free resources and a great one is Pat Flynn’s website called www.smartpassiveincome.com. Everything on there is useful. But I think the podcasts are the best place to start. Click on the pocasts link at the top. Listen to the first five podcasts (1 thru 5) and go from there. The link to all of his podcasts is at http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/category/podcast/ .

The great thing about podcasts is that you can download the mp3s and put them on your smart phone or tablet and then listen to them in your care while your driving.
And the great thing about starting your own website blog or website online business is that it costs almost nothing.
To start your own website with maximum flexibility, you should get your own domain name and get an inexpensive web hosting package. The software you need to build your own website is WordPress and it is free. All the information you need to do all of that is available at no cost.
YouTube has tons of outstanding videos on every aspect of website building, and any aspect of programming that you want to learn. I think the best place to learn how to build a WordPress website is Tyler Moore’s YouTube Channel (even if you are starting from no knowledge). All of his videos are great, but my favorite, because it is the most complete, is Create a BEAUTIFUL Website in WordPress – Easy!. Any of his videos will have complete instructions–just follow the video, pause it, complete the step on your WordPress site (Tyler will show you how to do everything), then repeat until done.
The biggest reason to have your own website blog or website internet business is to have fun. Give it a try as you will definitely have fun and you may be able to help other people with their problems or with their passions.
