When I started my Resounding His Love website I had no clue whatsoever how to begin or where to start. As a matter of fact, I had someone do the whole setup for me because I knew absolutely nothing whatsoever. I just wanted to focus on my content.
It got me thinking about others who may be finding themselves not knowing where to begin too. So I wanted to help encourage you and make the process somewhat easier by creating a Blogging Resource Page.
On my sidebar, you will see HOW TO START A BLOG that has TONS of information for you and many of the courses are FREE. You can find that link below or HERE.
My only Prayer is that if you are a born again follower of Jesus Christ that you would prayerfully consider doing a Blog that would point others to the eternal Salvation that can only be found in Christ Jesus.
I personally want to do writing that honors my Heavenly Father.
I have a burning conviction in my heart to reach out to the lost hurting people of this world and to let them know that someone loves and cares for them more than they will ever realize and that person is Jesus Christ.
I have learned a great deal but still, have a long way to go. I am a work in progress even now.
I have also found out the hard way that it takes much effort resources and money to get all this started.
Many things are FREE to start but if you want to reach more people and have a cleaner more professional looking website you should invest in doing so from the beginning.
I have been in prayer on how I can reach more people and present them with items that are Christ-centered ONLY so they can learn about the hope, love, forgiveness, and acceptance that can ONLY be found in JESUS CHRIST.
My vision is sending Christ-centered Bibles, books, calendars, devotionals, jewelry, etc…
I’m choosing to display this information in my sidebar content area ONLY…NOT my actual blog posts because I feel that would be dishonoring my Lord and Savior. I am by no means implying to those who do so, but for ME I would NOT be comfortable doing it.
I want to use whatever I receive from the listed links below to pay it forward in gaining Gospel progress and reaching the lost, broken, and hurting people of this world and my full-time job is not enough to reach others like I want to be able to do.
I wish I had known about this resource when I first started my Blog. I have used money out of my own pocket for everything I have done. However, this is an excellent way to earn affiliate commissions on products and services without using my full-time job resources and the best part is it will NOT charge an individual just by clicking on the link it will ONLY take them to the information pertaining to it.
I wanted to create a list of affiliate programs (referrals) that I’m currently using. I have learned that each affiliate program has its own TOS (terms of service) and you must read understand and apply what you can and can not do with the links used.
Seek help from knowledgeable individuals so you know you are doing it correctly.
HERE IS MY LIST OF RECOMMENDATIONS

MonsterInsights– Great tool that displays google analytics to grow your website and reach more people.
