One tip I do have, very important, DON'T LIMIT YOURSELF. I am not just blogging, I am looking into and doing everything possible - multiple blogs for different niches, affiliate programs, seo for the blogs, clickbank, adsense, etc.
I am starting this blog as I enter the world of internet marketing. I am not looking to get rich but, rather, replace "reporting at work from 9-7" with "working at home 24/7." Good luck to all that find my resources helpful. Links to come!
