I must say Blogging and Affiliate Marketing is the best way to make money online.

Q. Advice for other aspirants who want to get started online or are just starting out?
Blogging is becoming difficult so you need some solid strategies to stick here and earn passive income.
Many bloggers jump into blogging because they think blogging is a get rich quick scheme and after struggling for a few months they decide to quit.
My advice for new bloggers who are starting out is to start a blog in a single niche and work there for some years and you will definitely see exponential growth for sure.
