5 Thrifty Ways to Start a Blog

It’s been quite some time since the last time I published an organic post in this blog. And this time, I want to share some blogging tips to help you get started. I’m a thrifty blogger, so the cheap ways to start a blog are more like my jam to share today!

In case you didn’t know, I’ve been blogging for as long as I remember. I had my first blog when I was around 13 (or 14?!); at the time I used Livejournal to share my random cringey teenage stories. And then I transitioned to Blogspot long before Google bought the platform before settling with Tumblr in my early 20s.

My source of income is mainly from some remote works that I’ve got. I work as a freelance copywriter for some local Indonesian brands while I’ve also worked as Social Media Strategist for some local celebrity.

These jobs work well for me to at least pay my bills on time. But compared to my previous 9-to-5 job, it’s more than half of my usual income. And the only good thing is that I no longer have to pay for the rent as I now live in my parents’ house.

And one of the things that have turned out alright for me after I moved back in is this blog. Why? Because unexpectedly, this blog helps me to get some extra income every once in a while.
