The main purpose of this start page is to set you up with the core components that you will need to...

1. In the first step of learning how to make money on a blog, you must choose an interest that you know you won't get bored with. This could be anything such as golf, remote control nano drones, health and fitness, classic cars, travel and tourism, sports or anything else you have an interest in. This will be your niche. A niche is a segment of a market that you will target.
2. The second step is to get a domain name and build your website. Choose a name that is more obvious for your niche, for example, with golf you could choose golfing-for-retirees.com (if it is available). It's obvious from the name that it is a golfing site aimed at golf fans, more specifically, golf for retirees. In this case your site would be targeting older golfers.
3. Now it's time for step 3 which is attracting visitors. This is done in many ways, SEO, Social Media, Posting a link to your site in forums, paid advertising such as PPC, and Solo Ads etc...
4. This is the fourth step where you get to generate revenues from the products you promote on your site. Going back to the example of the golfing niche, you could choose to promote golfing accessories from Amazon.com. There are thousands of affiliate programs in addition to Amazon.
You have to adopt the mindset of an entrepreneur to make it. Real Work is Required from here on. Successful bloggers all have to do the same as what you're about to do. It takes patience, determination, willingness to fail many times, and the ability to learn from those failures and push on regardless.
If you give up 2 months into your journey, you will not make it. If you don't like the idea of hard work, frustration, failure, making mistakes, waiting for what seems like "forever" to achieve any goals you have, then this is not for you.
I recommend that you spend at least 3 hours a day on building your business. More If you can. I recommend you keep learning, and keep implementing new things daily. Over time as the pieces start coming together you can start doing less work for more profits.
The idea is to work hard at learning and implementing everything you need to so that you can one day have more time freedom. In the beginning, you're going to feel like a slave to your blog and in the mid term you're going to start seeing results. Eventually you'll work less to earn more. Make sense?
If you stray from the path, I cannot be responsible for the outcome. If you go on the path but you don't put in the work that's required, I cannot be held responsible. If you do things half-hearted, I cannot be blamed.
There is a lot of work to be done if you want to achieve your goals and if you stick to the game plan you're already setting yourself up with the best chance of reaching them.
Please don't continue from this point if you are not able or willing to do all of the things I mentioned above. You'd be wasting both your time and mine.
