WordPress.com or WordPress.org, which one?

Now on my 20th day of my blog, I’m planning to attempt moves (original plan is after 2 months :)) to start monetizing it even in a very little way, but the platform said ….. oops! Not possible buddy. Here are the following reasons:
1. Most monetizing tools will come from plug-ins. And my free hosted platform
    WordPress.com is not allowing any plug-ins.
2. Free hosted WordPress.com is not also welcoming affiliate links, in which affiliate  
    marketing is one great way to monetize your blog.
What’s gonna be the move for a 20 days old starter blogger like me? Here’s what I found and planning to do:
a. Find a commendable web hosting company and move to WordPress.org platform
    where plug-ins are welcome.
b. Or, I will create new blog for WordPress.org platform and let my current blog continue in
    WordPress.com platform.
c. After choosing which of the 2 previous options, I will start installing commendable
    monetizing plug-ins.
I knew, this will be a very long way to go. A process must take in. Let’s have this journey moving little steps at a time. Along the way, we will take advises from the well crafted people in the industry. Any thoughts? Your comments are much appreciated.
Be with me. Let’s keep exploring buddies.

 

How we will earn in blogging as newcomer in WordPress?

drownedI felt overwhelmed and tired after 2 days of research on how to earn in WordPress but inspired to go on. Now I realized, the question can’t be answered exactly within a week or months but years of exploring this medium. I believe that this will be a long but profitable journey.

The options to earn are plenty or I might say approaching limitless as I go over to read some of the articles about making money in WordPress. Here are the following that came to me:

Selling Products, advertising, affiliate links, paid memberships, theme development & designs, plug-in development, consultancy, customization, support, training provider, writing, selling e-books, and lots more. It’s an ocean of online treasures are there!

But stop newcomer, don’t get drowned. The ocean is deep, very deep. Let’s start learning first how to swim. Familiarize the WordPress platform, I found this basic step guidelines very helpful.

We can’t yet swim deep now. Keep practicing. Let’s study diligently this platform. It will take time. Let’s try swimming it one deep down next 2 months. Let’s do it together fellow newcomer.

One advise I can give now, keep posting and writing. I will do it at least 3 posts a week. You can do it more buddy.
