WordPress Speed Up Service | WordPress Website Maintenance Packages Hello! My name is Allison. I have basic questions about starting a blog. I wanted to write daily about my views and opinions. That is why I started the blog. How would I invite others to write or post on the blog? How does a blog make money? I tried and tried to create a blog on WordPress.com but I was confused on the choosing the colors, and background. Would anybody like to help me?
