10 Things I Did Right When I Launched My Blog

1. Investing in a good ebook cover for my free report.

You might argue this was a useless expense and I could have created a cool ebook cover without a designer (at least, I think it’s cool and since this is my blog, you better believe it).

Soon, I was helping my blogger friends fix their websites, and after yet another friend hired me to help I realized that I enjoyed this way more than my old job.
