- Blogger – This is one of the more popular widely used blog hosts. Litterally millions of users !! They are free , offer heavy customization as well as themes. Just google the term “Blogger templates” and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Almost forgot to mention that they have street cred to since they are part of Google!
- Xanga – This is another popular online blog host which caters to a younger audience such as late teens. It is not as customizable as blogger which may not be such a bad thing if you want to write something quick and easy without worrying about re-arranging this and that.
- LiveJournal – This is another great quality blog host that does not charge you a penny. I have personally used it and liked it a lot but it is similar to Xanga that it is not 100% customizable but in my opinion is a notch above Xanga.
- WordPress – WordPress is the the mecca of blogging origins. If you go on their site and look on the bottom, you can see well known media company names that depend upon wordpress like the New York Times or Yahoo. The great thing about wordpress is that it allows you to host and customize virutally anything. Any first time users will really want to create an account with them to get things rolling.
- Tumblr – Now I have not used Tumblr so I would be lying to say that I have first experience. But from what I have noticed most recently is that a lot of great websites out there use the Tumblr platform for blogging. It also looks to be quite as versatile as WordPress. Check it out!
- Weebly – Next up is a website / blog-host called Weebly. It is not well known but it does look promising as it offers free blog hosting and other tools to support you with.
- Blog.com – Such an original name , and blunt to the point. I like that , don’t you ? At least it doesn’t sound like a weedwacker compared to the others. This website also follows the suit in offering free webhosting as well as support to help you create your own blog. Setting up an account doesn’t take too long either. So take advantage now !
- Thoughts – At the eighth spot I listed Thoughts as another blogging hosting provider. I haven’t checked it out too much. This is definatly great for those of you who want something a little less mainstream.
- Experience-Projects – Here is another provider for a person to start blogging away.
- Free-Blog-It – Seems to be another promising website to lend bloggers a helping hand.

Welcome to Ebay and Tons of Income Opportunities!
If you’ve ever read an article about Ebay, you will have seen the kinds of incomes people make – it isn’t unusual to hear of people making thousands of dollars per month on Ebay.
Next time you’re on Ebay, take a look at how many PowerSellers there are: you’ll find quite a few. Now consider that every single one of one of them must be making at least $1,000 per month, as that’s Ebay’s requirement for becoming a PowerSeller.
Silver PowerSellers make at least $3,000 each month,
Gold PowerSellers make more than $10,000,
Platinum Powersellers make more than $25,000 and
Titanium PowerSellers make at least a whopping $150,000 in sales every month!
The fact that these people exist gives you come idea of the income possibilities here. Most of them never set out to even set up a business on Ebay – they simply started selling a few things, and then kept going. There are plenty of people whose full-time job is selling things on Ebay, and some of them have been doing it for years now.
Can you imagine that? Once they’ve bought the stock, everything else is pretty much pure profit for these people – they don’t need to pay for any business premises, staff, or anything else. There are multimillion dollar businesses making less in actual profit than Ebay PowerSellers do.
Even if you don’t want to quit your job and really go for it, you can still use Ebay to make a significant second income. You can pack up orders during the week and take them down to the post office for delivery each Saturday. There are few other things you could be doing with your spare time that have anywhere near that kind of earning potential.
What’s more, Ebay doesn’t care who you are, where you live, or what you look like: Some PowerSellers are very old, or very young. Some live out in the middle of nowhere where selling on Ebay is one of the few alternatives to farming or being very poor. Ebay tears down the barriers to earning that the real world constantly puts up. There’s no job interview and no commuting involved – if you can post things, you can do it.
Put it this way: if you know where to get something reasonably cheaply that you could sell, then you can sell it on Ebay – and since you can always get discounts for bulk at wholesale, that’s not exactly difficult. Buy a job lot of something in-demand cheaply, sell it on Ebay, and you’re making money
already, with no set-up costs.
If you want to dip your toe in the water before you commit to actually buying anything, then you can just sell things that you’ve got lying around in the house. Search through that cupboard of stuff you never use, and you’ll probably find you’ve got a few hundred dollars’ worth of stuff lying around in
there! This is the power of Ebay: there is always someone who wants what you’re selling, whatever it might be, and since they’ve come looking for you, you don’t even need to do anything to get them to buy it.
So you want to get started on Ebay? Well, that’s great! There are only a few little things you need to learn to get started.
