HOW TO START A BLOG AND MAKE MONEY FROM HOME; A FREE STEP BY STEP COURSE FOR ESTABLISHING PROFITABLE BLOG FOUNDATIONS

HOW TO START A BLOG AND MAKE MONEY WITH IT: 

Anyone can start a blog, yes. But how to start a blog and make money with it? That’s a whole different question – and it’s a little (a lot?) more complicated!

I’ll tell you right now, the best way to start a blog to make money is to have a PLAN, and to understand just WHAT actually makes money for blogs.

As with most things, there’s a right way and a wrong way to start a blog, if you want it to be profitable.

Despite everything you (may) have heard, you can’t just jump in and start writing whatever you want and hope the readers will come. (They won’t!)

Psst – I recently updated my how to start a blog and make money post with a step-by-step tutorial video (see below) on the technical steps to get your blog set up fast. Trying to do this on your own can take a LOT of time, so definitely give it a watch if you haven’t completed this step!  (Please note the following video is now outdated and I will be updating it ASAP! It’s very simple to set up a blog, so don’t distress 🙂 Just click the “get started” button on this page and choose the cheapest plan. You can always upgrade later!) 

There are literally millions of blogs on the internet, and only a fraction of them are earning any income.

(It’s hard to get exact statistics, but I’d guess that that less than 10% of bloggers ever become “full time”. I heard somewhere that 90% make less than 1$ per day – but don’t worry. I make over 200$ each and every day, and I will show you WHY I earn money with my blog, so that you can start your own blog and make money too.)

So why are so many bloggers failing?

This isn’t because blogging for money is dead – far from it! It’s because people don’t want to accept that learning how to blog and make money is just like learning how to do anything else to make money.

If you want to be a doctor, you go to medical school. If you want to be a photographer, you read about lighting and practice photography.

When you’re working towards establishing a career, you put in the effort and you accept that it’s going to take time.

You treat it like a JOB. Same thing when you want to be a blogger.

Many people want it to be an “easy money” thing, and they don’t want to put in the effort that starting a blog for money requires. They get bored and give up when they won’t see results quickly.

THAT is why so many bloggers don’t earn much.

It is well worth the effort – in the end, you get to have the best freaking job on the planet!

And not to mention, the most flexible job on the planet.

(Seriously – imagine this: I went into the hospital with an appendicitis just before Christmas this year. Both myself AND my husband missed 2 days of work. BUT, while I was way from my “work” it still brought in the same amount of money as it would have if I had been “working”.)

WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME HOW TO START A BLOG TO MAKE MONEY, I TELL THEM THERE ARE A FEW REQUIREMENTS.

Surprisingly, you don’t need to be super “good at computers” to make a great income as a blogger – I’m certainly not “good at computers” – I actually never took a single computer course in high school. (And yes, I do make a GREAT income as a blogger. I was making $5000/month one year into blogging.)

But you DO need to be dedicated and stubborn enough to make the computers do what you need them to do. You need to be a self-starter, you need to be willing to not give up when you run into snags.

You need to be a problem solver. I’ve had people email me (in response to something I’ve written here or there and say things like… “well, I don’t even know what a URL is”.

And, believe it or not, that’s fine. What’s NOT fine is that they didn’t just think to google “what is a URL”. You MUST be a problem solver.

You also need to be a decent writer – with a good grasp of whatever language you want to write your blog in. OR you need to be creative enough to figure out how to get away without writing much. (That IS an option! You can pay others to write for you, for example.)

Starting a blog to make money requires that you are willing to learn and learn and learn. And then learn some more. (Many people don’t want to hear that – because they want blogging to be the thing that solves all their problems easily… but if there’s a way to make a living blogging without gaining any knowledge about blogging, I haven’t figured it out yet.)

You need to be unafraid of trial and error – and of failure. Sometimes, the best way to figure out what DOES work is to figure out – systematically – what does NOT work.

You need to be willing to invest a little bit. But don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be much of an investment. It actually costs very little to start a blog – about 4$/month for a GOOD blog host, and then IF YOU WANT you can spend another $60 – $100 on a blog theme. That’s totally optional, however. The cost of starting a blog, compared to the cost of setting up a traditional brick and mortar business is PEANUTS.

This is one the least risky (monetary) ventures you will ever take.

I DO suggest that you consider purchasing some good blogging courses in the first year; remember, you want to treat this like a JOB you are training for.

And lastly, before you begin, you should know that blogging is hard work. Sure there are a few of those “overnight successes” out there – but don’t let them fool you into thinking it’s easy. Even they worked hard to get where they are.

Now, if I haven’t scared you away – if you’re still ready to learn how to get started blogging for money, well then…

STOP WAITING. START WORKING!

I wish so much that I had just started my blog 6 years ago when I first had an interest in it. I wish I had let go of all the fears and pushed aside all the overwhelm. I can hardly imagine where I would be now NOW if I had just started THEN.

You have literally almost nothing to lose. Starting a blog for money is one of the least risky “businesses” you can tackle on your own.

I believe that with hard work, you can start and grow a successful, money making blog.

I believe this because I did it. I am in no way more qualified to be a blogger than anyone else out there.  

One day I just thought… why NOT me? (And why not YOU? Why not you?)

Just do it!

I’VE COMPILED MY BEST BEGINNER BLOGGING POSTS INTO A SERIES OF 13 LESSONS DETAILING HOW TO START A BLOG AND MAKE MONEY –  THIS FREE COURSE WILL WALK YOU THROUGH THE BASICS – STEP BY STEP.

This is not a comprehensive blogging course that will overwhelm and confuse you. This is how to get started with your blog and understanding what it takes to make a blog profitable. (That part is SO important. Many people start with no understanding of what it takes to earn an income with their blog.)
