Be a webmaster
A webmaster in my own language is someone who runs a website successfully. He manages and maintains it growth, failures and successes.
This means that for you to be a webmaster, you must have basic knowledge about the following topics
- Website design

- Search engine optimization
- Webmasters account
- Hosting related issues
- Site optimization
- Content writing and marketing
- Tracking and analytics
So you see that its not everyone who put up a blog that is a webmaster. It’s a skill you can learn. Reading and reading numerous courses and eBook’s can achieve this. Relating with top content providers is a good way to begin. Do not get discouraged because of the share volume of things to learn. I never knew that I would be one. Never had a plan for it. Over three years, I had learned a lot. Finally I can set up sites and watch them grow. Go for this job if you are ready for it.

Yes eBooks writing and publication are always on the increase. The rise of self-publishing on amazon has put a powerful tool in the hands of authors and publishers. Many people are publishing their books online each year. They would need logo designers and book cover designers.
