Well, assuming you don't have a blog already, be it with Blogger or Wordpress, then the obvious first step is to create one. There are a few blogging platforms out there, but Blogger and Wordpress are the main good ones.

• Skills as a service
Use your own natural attributes and skills then promote it through your blog.

You can check Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms for specific keywords such as #bloggerrequest, #prresquest, and #bloggerswanted for opportunities like sponsored posts or other collaborations that you can apply for.
