#Blogger or #WordPress: Which #Blogging Platform is Best for Making Money in #AffiliateMarketing?

Truth: Blogging should be a passionate side hustle that you do from the heart, not looking to gain riches from it in the infancy of your online marketing career as a newbie blogger. Content and building relationships through your blogging efforts should be your mantra while looking to the future.

A Quora user asks:

Q: How do I set up a subdomain on Blogger?

A: While amateur bloggers look to gain valuable blog writing experience and content marketing momentum using free blogging platforms, using blogger by Google is really not a good idea and here’s why. Not just blogger, but Tumblr and LiveJournal should be avoided. One thing they don’t tell you is if someone continually flags your blogs as objectionable despite the fact that you’ve written and published nothing wrong in your blogs, you still run the risk of your originally written content being deleted. This means if you don’t have your content backed up in a Google Docs document or Microsoft Word doc, you basically have lost your hard work and have to start all over again fresh from scratch. This can take the momentum out of new bloggers looking to use blogging as a means of starting and successfully operating their blog side hustle working from home or remotely from their laptop.

It’s not a good idea to create a blog on a free blogging platform. Instead, what you want to do as the first initial action step is reserve your online real estate by purchasing a domain name. Once you have a domain name secured, the second initial action step you want to take is reserving a dedicated server. Once your dedicated web hosting plan is reserved, then install a self hosted version of WordPress on your dedicated host-server. The reason you want to have a self hosted version of WordPress on your dedicated server is because you want to avoid getting deleted. With a self hosted version of WordPress on your dedicated server web hosting plan, you have 100% administrative control over the look, feel and content of your blog. No one can tell you to take your content down, unless you write and publish something that’s not supposed to be on there, such as making threats or inciting hate speeches against some authoritative figures. When you have your own server and domain name, then you can focus on creating content you’ll have a peace of mind about and won’t be deleted, because you’re a paying customer to that web hosting service.

Blogger by Google is a great place to have content shared from your self hosted WordPress blog in terms of using the free blogging network as a backlink to improve your organic SEO. If you want to make serious money in affiliate marketing by promoting affiliated advertisements on your blog, shell out the money and reserve are domain name and dedicated server. You can’t earn a five or six figure monthly passive income from promoting affiliate programs on free blogs because sooner or later, your blog will be deleted for no reason, and you don’t want to go from a full-time side hustle blogger-online marketer to going back to the 9-5 day job scene and working with people you don’t want to look at.
