Tell me about your Blog?

Previous experience in internet marketing, as well coaching and consulting become part of my daily life. My blog is focused on coaching , consulting on online or offline business,blogging, . It’s rewarding work and took me some time to chose right color and design to like it to get concentrate of writing articles. I created logo myself and spend 7 days to do so. I know you will laugh at me because of that, but I took time to make it work for me, and be very marketable. See yourself how I done it
What was your first blog?
I created my first blog few years ago on Blogger.com and was related to freight brokering. At that time I was focus on writing article for my readers, and students, as I created training program for Freight Brokers . I did not have time to set-up any advertising, but use only google adsence and made $ 100 /year. Wow, what an income LOL. Then you know my real attention was to give away as much knowledge I can to my readers, and did not worry about making any money on Goodgle Adsence or selling my ad space to anyone. I love connecting with people and share my experience with their ideas, and knowledge. I do not own this blog any more. I closed down, and to be honest with you, now I’m sorry I deleted. I learned great lessons , never delete any of your work even when if you do not need it any more. Save your work, learn from my mistake . Now, I save everything I wrote even if I personally do not like it.
