Blogging can be for profit or just for fun – it is your choice.
However I say this – If you are blogging publicly and are actively looking for an audience then why not set up your blog web design to attract an income at the same time?
I have a dozen different blogging business ideas I could share with you.
Old style blogs are really the new websites of today as the search engines started to favor those active websites (blogs) and this let to the massive growth of WordPress as a content management system for all styles of websites.
If you asked me to design you an old fashioned HTML/PHP style website, I would simply refuse, as it would be very bad advice to have one of those old sites.
So, with the power of WordPress your blogging website could be shopping orientated, be affiliate linked, do CPA and a number of other income generating business methods that work very well online.
But why are you still reading this when you could tell me your immediate needs from a web design point of view and I will help you ptoduce exactly the website or blog that you are looking for.
