Web Development

In January 2009, at the age of 15, Alex Fraiser used his web design know-how to start Blogussion, a blog about blogging. As the year went on, Blogussion thrived – bursting not just with insightful articles but also with an ever-growing, increasingly enthusiastic community of subscribers.

In January 2010, Alex and his business partner, 24-year-old Seth Waite, launched their first product – a web theme modeled after Blogussion’s unique style – to immediate success. With an Alexa ranking under 20,000, Blogussion is now the highest ranking blog by a 16-year-old on the Internet.

After months of just scraping by, Andrew hit it big with ad revenue from his website, MySpaceSupport.com. He was pulling in $100,000+ checks every month. But after a few years of living the high life, the money stream from the site dried up and Andrew went from being a millionaire to being in debt.

A blog is a place where you can express your opinions and share your knowledge, but it is also a great way to showcase your skills. From what I’ve found, it’s fairly common for start-up bloggers to receive requests for freelance work because of their blog.
