  1. I thought about starting a blog, but if I have to go though all of this, blogging is not for me. I have no money and the sites provided here require $60 or more. Being on disability, I don't have that kind of money to spend. Plus, I would hate it to spend that kind of money and find out blogging is not for me. Thanks for the video. It was very informative.

  2. Just made mine! Anyone want to go check it out?

  3. i started a christian blog its in spanish and english go check it out please

  4. 1. Believe dumb garbage
    2. Tell people you believe dumb garbage
    3. Try to get others to believe dumb garbage
    4. Ask for money
    5. Make loud swallowing sounds throughout your video.
