I started my first website and blog in 2011 when I started my first business. At the time, blogging was already very popular for businesses. In fact, some "experts" said that blogging was dead. That's so funny to me. People make these outrages claims all the time. When I started my personal blog in 2015, it was exactly the same. "Blogging is dead! Social media and video is where you need to be!" Really? My social media activity is close to 0. And yet, my articles reach close to 250K people a month. My whole strategy is blogging. Nothing more. Nothing less. So no, blogging is far from dead. In fact, over the past year, I've been getting at least 4 emails a week from people who want to start a blog. I noticed that there's a need for practical information about the business of blogging. Hence, I'm starting a new website where I will be sharing everything I've learned about the business side of blogging. It's called Business of Blogging. And I just registered my domain at Bluehost: businessofblogging.net. It's not live yet. That's because I want to take everyone who's interested in blogging on the journey—from the start. I'm very excited about this next step in my career as a blogger. Life is about forward motion. And this definitely feels like a step forward for me. I hope I can help new bloggers with the lessons I've learned in the past seven years. I'm also starting a separate newsletter where I will be sharing content about blogging. Since there's no website yet, please join my newsletter on: http://dariusforoux.com From there, I will keep you posted on the progress. In case you also want to start a blog, I'm hosting mine on Bluehost. I've partnered up with them a while back to give my readers a discount. Coincidentally, they are now celebrating their 15th birthday with a special rate of $2.65/mo for 36 months (July 16/17). That's the best hosting deal I've ever seen.
