1. Make a site or blog

A blog:
A blog is an easy to use website in wich you can share your ideas and thoughts to the rest of the world. Setup takes about 5 minutes and you can practically begin posting right away. A good blogsite is and it is absolutely free to use.
Readers can leave their comments providing an easy communication between the writer and the readers.

A usefull tool is "Blogger for Word", a free add-in for Microsoft Word. This add-in allows users to save a Microsoft Word Document directly to a Blogger blog, as well as edit their posts both on- and offline. A blog is the most user-friendly site you can make and you can put advertisements on it. More about this in next posts about making money with ads.

For making a website there are two approaches, you can either build one yourself, or you can partially make one yourself. The difference between the two is that making a website on your own will cost you a lot of time and work because you need to understand the use of html. A good site to learn this is

To make a website you need a host. Rather then using a free host for your site you should make your own domain ( There is a reason why some hosts are free and that is because the support is just awful. Believe me on this one, I tried it and there was little to none support.

A web host, one that is not free, provides you tools, space and good support to help make your site succesful. These host will charge you a few dollars a month depending on how much space you need and what services they provide. When looking for a host search the web and evaluate them. The price range will be between 1$ to as much as 250$ a month

You can search for a host right here or look for one yourself

Price, reliability and costumer support are the key words. Also the tools they provide for making your site can either make it easy, or give you headaches.
