Monetizing your blog

I’ve been sharing more and more about the business of blogging over the past few months and today I’m going to share my story plus a fabulous opportunity for new bloggers who want to make blogging a career. For all of my amazing readers who aren’t bloggers, don’t want to be a blogger and have no interest in this topic, I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun post.  For those of you who are interested, this post is for you.

I know a lot of readers are either new to blogging or want to start a blog and don’t know where to begin. I get a lot of emails with questions and I love to help others with the knowledge I’ve gained over the past five years.

Making money blogging

Some of you have read about my transition out of the corporate world, but I want to share a bit about it again today. Quitting my corporate job was a long time coming, but I had worked very hard to get to where I was, so it wasn’t easy to leave. I worked in a well-respected department in a large successful company. I had great colleagues and what most would consider, a really good job.

But, what has stuck with me since I attended the Making Things Happen Intensive in December of 2010, was this quote that Lara Casey shared that day.

A year from now, you will wish you had started today. -Karen Lamb

It took me a while to realize it, but it’s 100% true for me. I had been freelance writing, doing some photography, events and blogging for years! Bit by bit, my skills got stronger, I got more confident and more work started flowing in, but I couldn’t really grow in any of those areas while working full-time and still get the time I needed with my husband and new baby.

I left my job and started working my tail off on the three days a week when I had childcare and during all of Bodhi’s naps. Bodhi was just one year old when I left.

After a few months of putting myself and my dreams out there, I had a successful business that was growing every single day. Did it happen overnight? No way! But, hard work pays off.

I am a big believer in working hard to make our own dreams come true. Dreams can come true, but no one ever just gets lucky. Everyone I know who is very successful in their industry now, especially entrepreneurs, started small and worked incredibly hard to get where they are. You do have to start somewhere. Start now!

I actually stumbled a lot in the beginning when this blog became a big part of my career. I learned a lot of blogging lessons the hard way and was slow to adopt new strategies for creating revenue. I’m hoping those of you who want this as well can skip learning some of blogging lessons the hard way like I did. Today I’m so so excited to share this amazing opportunity with you.

As I said above, I’m working with Blogelina today to offer you the 4 Week Online Blogging Class for less than $1. Sign up here.
