It was in 2013 while I was reading a blog – Making Sense of Cents.
I was having a lot of knowledge regarding personal finance and lot many other things by reading Michele’s (the owner of Making Sense of Cents) blog. I was a regular reader of her blog.
At one point, I started having a great desire to start a blog of my own. So, I researched a bit about how to start a blog.
But, it wasn’t possible to have my own blog due to paying the bill of a domain and a hosting pack that is quite essential to start a blog.
Yes, wanted to start a self-hosted WordPrss blog because that was the best thing to succeed in blogging as per my research.
But the irony was that I was unable to pay the hosting bill online because I had no such payment method that could make me able to do so.
Though later on, I had opened a Payoneer MasterCard, it wasn’t available at that time.
My desire of starting a blog was almost dying when I suddenly came to know about microblogging.
Yes, you know that there are many microblogging sites available which need no payment to start a free blog for anyone.
Learning about that, I checked a lot of microblogging sites and found Tumblr as a promising one.
