    "whether it takes 7months or 7 years to get going the blog you want.." or something. It has been about 17 months and I'm still stuck on some threshold between WordPress dot com or WordPress dot org and have an installer app that has crashed and I can't remove the wreckage. Don't know what to do next. Utter stalemate. I'm yet to find a video that even knows the two types of Worpresses. That part really does my head in. Hard to believe there is no strongly expressed advice on these topics. This video on blogging mistakes is pretty good, but i need concise advice without the endless repetitions on most Blog advice videos about getting a domain name that takes a laborious 7 minutes to get through usually. & I ALREADY HAVE THE DOMAIN NAME!!! Just a video with the simplest most simplest simplest ever blog will do me fine for starters please!! No add ons no fancy expensive frames. Just a blog! When???

    Thank you so much for this, I have been blogging on facebook for some time sharing my life as a traveling single dad to an ASD boy and have really not understood why I should bother with a website, nor how to direct traffic to it if I do. I have sat on point 10 and 11 for some time now…

    I am at a bit of a crossroads as to how I should continue as my facebook page is a eclectic mix of our journey together, tips on unschooling, general parenting and cheap ways to travel with kids / off grid camping. Have joined your facebook group and hope to get some advice from those of you more experienced! Off to check out your site now!

    Hello I really enjoyed your video but I do have a question. I have a interest in starting a blog, but I am not sure it is for me. You said don't use the free sites, but what about someone like myself that wants to try it but are unsure if it is something I will enjoy in the long run should I start with the free site? To see if I keep up the enjoyment of it?
    Also I watched your other video about finding your niche and one of the things I can't shut up about is mythology and supernatural though I don't know a whole lot about i enjoy the topics a lot would that be a possible topics for a blog?
