Hi there, my name is Carol Manser and I’m the owner of this blog called My Second Million. I live in Sydney, Australia, and My Second Million is my first ever blog,
My Second Million is where I am documenting everything I learn on my journey from Total Beginner, to online Mega Stardom and an Early Retirement….It’s a work in progress, OK!?
My Second Million has now become a huge Resource of valuable Information for Beginner Bloggers who want to set up a blog for the first time. It starts off right at the beginning, on Day One, which is where everyone has to start. And it has progressed! Yes! It has grown, and has now become a huge Resource for Beginners, and Beyond.
My Second Million started off earlier this year, with only one Domain Name, a Host, One Post, Welcome Friends, and a few ideas about how to get started. That’s all. But My Second Million has grown quickly, and has already built up into a big Resource for Bloggers from Day 1 Beginners, to more experienced online entrepreneurs.
I give you tips and information in easy to understand, and easy-to-follow steps. That’s because, as soon as I learn something new, I blog about it – while I still remember all the small steps I had to take, when I was doing it myself for the first time. Just as my readers will be doing it for themselves for the first time.
In that way, i don’t skim over important details, which could easily happen if I were to write a ‘How To’ article after I’ve already done the job a hundred times before – and have forgotten exactly how I did it the first time. In fact:
I do the hard work, so you don’t have to.
There is an old Chinese Proverb which says, “Even the longest journey starts with just one step”. That was what I was telling myself many years ago, when I was standing on my own with just my rucksack, on the platform of our Local Railway Station, waiting for the train that would take me away from my family home in England, and start me off on my journey to travel overland through Europe, Africa and Asia.
I had almost no clue about how I was going to get there. I knew what my first two steps would be (first go to London, and then go to Amsterdam), but beyond that, I knew nothing and had no plans.
But I did know that the important thing was to take that first step, and have faith that it could be done – and that I could do it – that I would do it.
And I eventually ended up in Australia! I didn’t know that when I started out…..and became a real life Medical Doctor! – I certainly never saw that coming! That was many years ago, but the Proverb still applies in my life today. It can apply in your life too.
The decision to set up a Blog starts with an idea, or a dream. But to make it happen, you have to take ACTION, and take that first step.
My Second Million shows you exactly how you can do that. Because it covers all the steps you need to take along the way – the same steps I took myself when I was starting out. In reality, it isn’t a big step to set up a Blog, it’s a small step – it just feels like a big step.
If setting up your own blog and make money from it is your dream, you must take that first step to make your dreams come true.
That is the power of that ancient Chinese Proverb: It’s message is: Just Do It!
Don’t ‘not do it‘ just because you think it’s seems too big and daunting a task. It never is.
They were Smart Cookies, those Ancient Chinese philosophers – they certainly knew a thing or two about Life, alright:
The first small step leads to the second small step…and hundreds of small steps later – you have a thriving Blog and a regular income – if that is the purpose of your blog. Or… you end up in Australia! Both outcomes are good outcomes.
So if you’d like to tag along for the ride, Welcome! There will be bumps along the road, but when there are, I’ll tell you how to avoid them, or what to do if you’ve already crashed.
Of course I don’t know yet if I’ll ever make it to ‘My Second Million’ but I intend to have fun trying. Everyone is welcome to join me on my journey.
