Your Own Determination Will Impact the Success of Your BlogBy Ashley Hardway

Did you know that on average a new blog is created every one-half of a second? That’s a lot of sites being developed daily. A large portion of them are developed by people like yourself that are looking to make a few extra dollars each month.
