This is the second of our 2-part series on starting a profitable blog.
In Episode 3, we talked about the four questions you must answer if you want to start a profitable blog.
In Episode 4, Susanna gets into the nitty gritty of the technical side of things — what you need to know to set up your blog in the right way, using the right platform and host, to make the “profitable” part easier and more streamlined.
Did you know that some hosts and platforms make it harder for you to earn money with your blog?
