Wow! This is the 4th video on blogging I have watched and it is really the only one I needed to watch. I was taking notes like crazy! Plus the instructor's voice is easy to listen to. Thank you!

Great content! Very informative and clear. I just have one doubt: what if I want to make my blog profitable without having a product to sell? Like in a educational blog. Is it possible?
