I enjoy trying new things and hope that these tips will help you also make a great full time blogging income in 2019

Starting your blog

Pick the Right Hosting (Self Host)

I have used three hosting services during my over ten years of blogging. This year I made a switch again and have been very happy with it. My blog receives a fair amount of traffic and though I’m not a big name blogger I was finding my old host just would not keep up. 

Hosting your own blog is important if you really want to make money. Most companies will not work with you if you are on a free hosting service like Blogger or WordPress.com. Hollybee Tells is hosted on Site Ground Web Hosting using WordPress. 

There are other host out there. I suggest site ground because I have been so happy with them. I have had no down time and they have been great to work with the few times I had questions.
