    Hello World :)
    I ve been developing for the last year or so and now I am ready to try to make a little cash on the internet. I am pretty good at a few web languages and technologies ( novice right now ) such as jquery, javascript, php, apache. I am currently working on my skills with mongodb and have been using the bootstrap 3 framework by twitter for the past 4 months. I want to start blogging and understanding how money is being made through marketing/advertising and stuff like that. Currently looking at A Small Orange for hosting and I just want a good knowledge base of how to create a good and profitable blog/website before I start building one. I plan on not using a CMS and build the whole thing myself. Any help and advice or direction would be greatly appreciated thank you.

    Hi letsJham,

    welcome to the forum!

    Content is king! Get good content like articles/opinions/reviews about a specific topic (niche product or topic with low competition preferably) and then advertise your blog.

    Why do you want to build everything yourself if you can take a CMS and focus on content + marketing? just my thought ;-)

    Why don't you work with wordpress and modify a ready made theme to a point where its exactly how you want it (and nothing like the original). You still get to play around with code but you will have more time for content and promotion too
