This may be a ridiculous question. How can I get hands-on experience without having to come up right now with my 5-year business plan. Is it possible for me to set-up a “Practice Blog” officially? I’m a painter, so I need to get hands in there to see what works and what doesn’t while I continue to study about Blogs/Blogging/Programming/Java and all the rest. My apologies if this is redundant. I did a search for this.
