Today’s guest is the beautiful Melody Beliveau who is a Blogger. Before I introduce her live on the show here is a bit about Melody
Melody is a Content Creator/Web Publisher at The Social-Commentary.Com who’s passion and purpose is writing thought provoking articles that can create discussion and changes in our society. Melody created a blog to share with others, food for the soul. I had an opportunity for a column in a magazine that wasn't a good fit, and the mentor I had told me I needed to create my own website. The passion and drive were strong enough to get past my limited technology challenges and TheSocial-Commentary.Com was born.
Melody wants to have an impact on the world by helping people see that they matter and that they have a purpose. Her favorite quote is “We are all in this together”

What is blogging? Notes - a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style, blogs can help you develop an online presence, prove yourself an expert in an industry, and attract more quality leads to all pages of your site.
The history of Blogging according to Hubspot - 1994, Swarthmore College student Justin Hall is credited with the creation of the first blog, Links.net. At the time, however, it wasn't considered a blog … just a personal homepage. In 1997, Jorn Barger, blogger for Robot Wisdom, coined the term "weblog", which was meant to describe his process for "logging the web" as he surfed the internet. The term "weblog" was shortened to "blog" in 1999, by programmer Peter Merholz. In the early stages, a blog was a personal web log or journal in which someone could share information or their opinion on a variety of topics. The information was posted reverse chronologically, so the most recent post would appear first.

Can you make money from a blog? Yes How do you do this? Notes – 1. money from ads, (adsense, adthrive) pay per impression and paid per click and its paid per 1000 impressions. 2.
