I have decided to start one and maybe to niche blogs that I would like to set up to be able to add advertisers and for me to become an Amazon affiliate. My current not-for-profit blog is through wordpress.com. I'd like to go through wordpress.org I suppose. What are the first steps? Do I register a domain name first, or set up an account with wordpress.org? Also, is it pretty self explanatory? I am not versed in HTML or webpage design. I function now on templates and simplicity. I guess that's called apps? I don't want to get in over my head, but I do want to start doing a few things to bring in some income. I desperately need to help my husband with money, but I also need to be home with my children. Also, once I'm set up, do I contact people to tell them about my blog for advertising, or do I build readership first? Is the Amazon affiliate thing pretty easy managed?
I'd caution you first to build up a very, very solid readership and really begin to leverage social media before you put up blog ads. Will add more later.
