The Blog Starter Scholarship

The Blog Starter was created by Scott Chow to provide simple tutorials on the highly technical subject of creating and designing websites and blogs.  The free guides available from The Blog Starter show readers how to start and design a blog without any prior knowledge.  Additional tutorials show users how to promote and make money from their blogs.

The Blog Starter is a place where I can share the knowledge from my experiences starting blogs and websites. In addition to my own blogs, several of my friends and members of my family have asked me to help them setup their own blogs. This happened so often that one of my friends jokingly began referring to me as “The Blog Starter”.
