I seen many newbie bloggers start using free themes, plugins and bad hosting and even after earning money they don’t upgrade the blog with better resources, and this tends to lose your professional level.

A successful professional blog doesn’t only believe generating traffic from search engines or from a single source. In fact he will always share their work socially to connect with more people around the world.
