Blogging For Beginners + $149 worth of Bonus Imagine a job where you could get paid to share your opinions about things that you're passionate about, a job that you can do from your own home on completely your own hours that takes almost nothing in the way of upfront financial investment. For many people, that job is blogging. It's no wonder that close to 1% of American adults make at least a portion of their living by blogging. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 2 million people profit from blogging each year in America. Of those, about a quarter (452,000 people) use blogging as their primary source of income. If you want to become a blogging success story, this information is both uplifting and depressing. It is possible to make money blogging; lots of people are already doing it. But like with other creative professions like actors and musicians, the famous celebrities earning millions of dollars are far outnumbered by the people who don't make enough to quit their day job. I won't lie and say it's easy making your living as a blogger, but it is true that anyone can do it, so long as you have a subject you're passionate about and enough dedication to stay the course. Each chapter in this book focuses on a different element of blogging, from setting up your domain name to diversifying your income streams. At the end of each chapter, you'll find some wisdom from a person who started at nothing and has found success through blogging. But while blogging is a possible profit opportunity for anyone, let's first clear up some popular misconceptions about blogging. You will also get a $149 worth of bonus at the end of the book to help you starting out your blog.
How Using Today's Technology Can Bring You Back to Deeper Relationships, Real Conversations, and the Age-Old Methods of Sharing God's Love

If God’s desire to enlarge His family matters... If the church of the future matters... If the gospel still matters... We must embrace the changes that are happening in our world. There is no going back. Our world is changing at an unprecedented rate. We are connected with people all over the planet through technology that didn’t even exist ten years ago. The world around us is having a conversation about life, meaning, culture, and eternity, and we have an amazing opportunity not just to join the conversation but also to lead it. But too many in the church are struggling to keep up with this cultural shift and failing to use these communication tools to their full advantage. In Rewired Brandon Cox demonstrates the real, connecting power in online social networks, showing you how to connect and tell God’s story relationally and creatively in our social, digital age. Because the thing is, social media isn’t an escape from the real world. It is the real world, whether we are ready for it or not. And this shift we are seeing toward a more mobile, social environment is actually a return to the form we were created for: to be in relationships, to have conversations, and to share our stories--and God’s--with each other.
