How I started my blog and you should too.
I started my blog of march 2017 with no idea what I was doing. I knew only two things. First- I wanted to have an outlet, something I could do as a stay at home mom to express myself a little. Second- I wanted..no needed to figure out a way to help my family financially while being at home with my little ones.
Reading about blogs and bloggers in the past is something I did on a regular basis for about six months to a year before I started this blog. I loved the idea of doing it and new I could make money. But I didn’t like that it would take so long to do so. Yep. most bloggers take at least six months to a year before they start to make the greens. I wish now that I had taken their advice and just started. If I did by this time I would have been making more money and know a lot more then I do now.
So if it is something you are considering. Don’t wait. Its not worth it. Start now.
The First Step.
My first step on this blogging journey I don’t regret at all! In fact I would recommend it to all who are thinking of starting. It has helped me out immensely. I decided I would take some advice from a blogger who is already making it work great for her and her family. I purchased a course and E-book from Suzi.
BLOG BY NUMBER! Is the course to take! It is amazing! It has helped me step by step through a beginner blogger process. I love it! Suzi goes into everything you need to know when starting a blog and how to start monetizing from day one. I would highly recommend her course to anyone who doesn’t know where to start.
If you want to go about things the right way. Yup, I am going to say it again. I would recommend taking this course and going through someone who has already been where you have been. I plan on saving up and taking some more courses, they are so worth it.
What I have learned in my second month as a blogger.
There is so much to learn. I learn something new everyday I blog. I think this month I have definitely focused on gaining subscribers. They are your go to audience, your supporters, ,who you blog for. I am so thankful to all who have subscribed and all who will subscribe. I also use a great website and tool for subscribing. And that is convertkit. Most will tell you to go with someone you don’t have to pay for at first. Boy do I understand that. But I also wanted to go about things the right way from the get-go, and that’s why I went with Convertkit. I guess you just come to realize that those before you know what they are doing. and are trying to help.
I have also learned that when it comes to blogging to write about things you are truly passionate about. When I started this blog I already knew my kids where my entire life, they are my passion. Coming up on two months I have also realized I do have a passion for blogging. I get to write about things I love and because of this it grows my passion for it everyday.
How have I started to Monetize my Blog?
This one is a big one. Most bloggers want to make money while doing something they enjoy, and why not? So I have done a few tricks that have been taught through the course BLOG BY NUMBERS. And have implemented some on my own. So let me give you a small list.
- Start from day one! I have read some postings to beginner bloggers that say you should build your following and subscribers before you plan to make money. Sure that is a great tip. But I get a little impatient. I started to sign up for things like adds and affiliates the day I launched my blog. And it has all worked out for me.
- I don’t make a lot. Yup, not very much at all. Pennies really. But I know its a start and I can become awesome. I can make money. So many I have seen started right where I am and now make thousands a month. If they can do it. I can too, If I can do it, YOU can too! Basically don’t give in. Push yourself for it.
- Put in time. I put in several hours a day to make this blog work. I try and do most of it when the kids are sleeping. However I have started to put some time into it when they are awake too. They are awesome kids and I find I can still engage with them while putting a little more work in.
- Enjoy what you write. Kinda common knowledge? Yeah I think so too. If you want to put an effort into it, make sure its a niche you enjoy. Simply and short.
You can Make Money Blogging In Two Months Too.
I know that if others before me have made this work and have helped me out, I can make the same effort. I hope that reading this has helped you out in some way. If you just believe in yourself that is enough, you too can make this work. Start now instead of later. You wont regret it. Leave me a comment or contact me for any questions. I would love to help.
Lots of Love
