When it comes to finding success in the world of blogging, there is nothing better than having a mentor to guide you along the way. What we take for granted as established bloggers, would take a brand new bloggers hours, if not days to understand.
For instance… let’s take the simple task of registering a domain name, setting up hosting and installing wordpress. I’m sure many of us with a blog already could do this in our sleep — however, do you remember the first time you had to go through this process? It was probably something like this…
- Why do I need a web host? Who is the best and cheapest?
- What type of domain should I get? Where to register it? Why are they all taken?
- How do I connect my domain name to my hosting?
- What is WordPress and how do I get it? WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org?
- I have a domain, hosting and WordPress… but now what?
It’s probably quite funny to read through the questions above and think about when you went through this same process, but the truth is that hundreds if not thousands of new site owners and bloggers are going through these same questions everyday for the first time…. each of which costing them hours and hours of time on research, learning and comparisons.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and that’s why I created the Blogging.org training course and community — to help bloggers and online marketers of all sizes, no matter what transition they are currently in. It’s not only about having access to quality course material and saving time, but also about connections and getting to know the right people.
Just take a look at some of the people I’m now good friends with and have been able to meet as a result of having my own blog at ZacJohnson.com.
