Finding the best place to start a blog all depends on what you want to do with blogging.
There is a future in blogging and the web, but not with display ads. For too long we have sullied our blogs so the 1% could benefit. No longer!
We may have been doing blogging wrong this whole time and it would not be good to enter a new age of blogging making the same mistakes.
Why should you keep blogging even if at the beginning everyone exaggerated just how much you would be making? Blog because you know you will be successful.
The common advice is to just niche down and pick a topic people are searching for. But you need to find a problem people care about and solve it.
Why would you start a blog or website when you do not need to? With so much noise on the web, why would you add to it if you don’t have something important to say?
