First off I want to thank everyone that has contributed to all the information on this site. I have searched through so much and read so much that at times it felt overwhelming. However I am posting this question because I couldn't quite find the material I am looking for in some areas. If you know of a thread that I missed you can just paste the link for me and I will go back to reading. First before I ask my question I will tell you my current objectives/status or my vision if you will. Facts- 1. I currently have a blog through wordpress that is hosted by hostgator. 2. I currently have a set schedule so that I can put an hour or two in a day for the website (goal is at least 1 post 400-600 words a day) 3. I want to keep it simple and productive at this point and just develop the content of my site and make money in one or two ways at the most starting out. Questions- 1. Should I create a website or keep my blog through wordpress? My long-term objectives is to do affiliate sales or dropshipping directly from my website. I also want to create a donation tab on my website so people can donate to me if they really like/appreciate the information I present to them. I just read on paypal that it was only for non-profit through them (on the merchant section), how do I set it up so it can become my profit? I recently bought a video camera and do plan on putting self made videos/pictures on my website. 2. How do I actually setup a dropshipping/affiliate sales to my site? I want solid newbie step by step guide information as to how you go about all this. Any links to threads/websites that do this is really appreciated. I spent an hour today looking and couldn't find the information I am looking for. My current objectives is just to work on SEO (Which I found great information on) and providing the best quality content that I can. My goal is $500.00 a month at this point. I really appreciate your help in helping me reach this goal.
