As far as I know, I have always had many interests and passions and I have hardly been able to focus on only one thing. I have never resonated with the statement that you need to decide for one thing only and I have struggled with it until I found out in 2014 that I'm a so called scanner personality (Scanner is the name Barbara Sher invented when she wrote the books I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What it Was and Refuse to Choose), also known as multipotentalite, multi-passionate, generalist. According to Emilie Wapnick from Puttylike, a multipotentalite can be described this way:
A multipotentialite is a person who has many different interests and creative pursuits in life.
Multipotentialites have no “one true calling” the way specialists do. Being a multipotentialite is our destiny. We have many paths and we pursue all of them, either sequentially or simultaneously (or both).
Multipotentialites thrive on learning, exploring, and mastering new skills. We are excellent at bringing disparate ideas together in creative ways. This makes us incredible innovators and problem solvers.
When it comes to new interests that emerge, our insatiable curiosity leads us to absorb everything we can get our hands on. As a result, we pick up new skills fast and tend to be a wealth of information.
You might me a multipotentialite if you can say "yes" to all or many of the statements below:
Please be aware that saying "yes" to all these statements doesn't necessarily mean that you are really a multipotentialite. These statements are just a basis for further researches.

Purchase webhosting and domain. For your blog to be accessible on the Internet, you need webhosting and a domain. Webhosting is the home of your blog and the domain is the address of your blog. You can purchase webhosting and domain within the same company but I recommend to purchase webhosting and domain name with different companies. If you need to change your webhost for any reasons, it's easier to move your domain to your new webhost.
I host my blogs at InterServer and purchase my domain names at Namecheap. What I love about InterServer is the option to pay monthly for webhosting instead of paying for years in advance. I pay 5$ per month for my webhosting at InterServer and about $10 to $13 per year for each of my domains. InterServer has a very great customer service. Whenever I have had an issue, I have contacted them and they have answered immediately and have always been very helpful and solved my issue.
Another great webhosting provider is Siteground. It is especially recommended if you want to host a WordPress blog.
Now you need to install a blogging/content management software or website builder on your webhosting server depending on the type of site you want. Most people recommend WordPress because it is the most flexible content management software and it has many features. However, there is a learning curve with using WordPress and it has a weak point - it can be hacked easily due to the MYSQL database. For this reason, you need to be very careful and invest in a good security. Personally, I don't use WordPress because I prefer a content management system that is not so complex and vulnerable. I use a so called flat-file content management software called Typesetter that has no MYSQL database. It stores data in files that are organized in folders instead. It has a similar user interface but it is way more simple than WordPress. I find it's enough for my purposes. If you want to use WordPress or any other CMS, most webhost provider offer an easy one-click installation for WordPress and many other CMS. Just follow the instructions of your webhosting provider to install WordPress or your preferred CMS.
Once you have created the framework of your blog, it's time to fill it with content. Though you could find many information about blog content creation online for free, I recommend the Pajama Affiliates courses from Robin Cockrell and Lesley Stevens since they are affordable and include a free live support in their Facebook group. After purchasing any of their courses, you are not left alone but get help whenever you need it. No other Affiliate Marketing classes offer that kind of expertise and group coaching like the Pajama Affiliates do!
