    What do you suggest I do? I've been testing different bots to try the Instagram method, but I'm having issues with some of them. I can start a site but don't know what to write about. I don't want to steal articles either.

    I don't know if it's a good idea becuse my knowledge is very limited, but if you want to make a blog, find a theme that actually interests you and make that big. if you want to make money off your writing skills, make a marketplace thread.
    I'm very vague in my explanations, I know

    What's the point starting a site without knowing what the site should be? First you should focus on making a plan, then implement it.

    If you have the budget you can always hire someone to write the content for you.. check the marketplace. But yeah as @qrazy stated, first you should have some idea what you want to do.

    Find your niche, look at what's making money, and try and find a way to make it your own.

    Writing articles for affiliate websites is a skill all in itself

    The actual writing part is easy in my opinion, it's the research that you need to put in prior that sucks ass.

    I have just written 40 articles on a niche that I don't know anything about, and that I have zero interest in. All I do is simply take a pen and paper, open up the top 3 - 5 competitors, and take down all of the main points. Then, I rewrite all of that information into my own words.

    Not only does that make researching easier, it also means you are combining the information of all of your top competitors, so your article will more than likely be a) longer, and b) more informative

    It gets easier mate. Just keep practicing and you will be able to churn out a couple thousand words an hour easily.

    A blog is a place to put words to the images. It allows the potential for conversion beyond the limitations of say 140 characters or less that could fit undernearthe an instragram image and still be enticing.

    Home Page:
    1. Find and focus on a niche

    2. Develop an angle for that niche (this will make your blog different)

    3. Create a mission statement for your blog that should answer the following:
    - What are you writing about
    - Who are you writing for
    - What are your readers gaining from your blog

    The mission statement should help you keep focus.

    4. Start a content calendar
    - example: create a word document with 10 questions that your readers might have (this will do for 10 articles to start with)

    WRITING ARTICLES:
    5. Develop the tile - helps focusing your content

    6. Develop 3 or 5 subheadings

    7. Write 5 to 10 sentences for each subheading

    This should help you create articles with a length between 500 and 1000 words.
