Have you ever thought of working from home or starting a side hustle for an extra stream of income? I’ve been doing it for years! Read my story.
How it all started
I went to college when I was 18, like most of my friends, and I always assumed I’d work a regular job. I picked music teaching because I love music, and I loved the idea of summers off. Who doesn’t want to have some time off and structure their own day? I graduated, got married, and lived that life for a couple years until I got pregnant with my first daughter. Did you know that daycare is EXPENSIVE? I would be handing over my entire teaching paycheck in exchange for childcare. No thank you.
I had started blogging as a hobby before having kids and eventually realized it was taking up enough of my time that I should learn to monetize it, or throw in the towel. Over the span of many years I learned that other people were making money working from home too. It’s definitely possible to turn your hobby into a money making machine.
How can you make money blogging?
People ask me me all the time how I create a monthly income from my side hustle. The answer? Have MANY forms of income going if you want to blog for a living.
- Sponsored posts- Seek out companies that will pay you to write about the things you already love.
- Affiliate links- Make a percentage of the sale of products you link to on your website.
- Ad networks- Have ads placed on your site that pay you based on traffic and clicks.
- Sell something- Create your own product or get involved in network marketing to build a business from products you use and love.
Is your head hurting just reading about these different ways of making money? Mine did too for a long time, but I learned all about it and wrote the basics down for you.
I have a free resource for you! No strings attached, I would love to share with you how I have gone from being a SAHM to a WAHM and am making great money doing so, using the four methods for making money above.
What is your free resource?
My free resource is a 50 page eBook detailing my experience with making money blogging. I’ve been blogging for 7 years, and blogging with intention to make money for about half of that time. In that time, I’ve dug into Pinterest, google searched, and more to learn everything I could about pulling in cash from home. I know what I’m doing and I’m glad to share that information with you for free. I’ve bought so many eBooks for hundreds of dollars over the years, and I’ll be honest…mine is at least as informative as those are. I cover everything you need to know AFTER you’ve nailed down your URL. I get straight to the point on how to nail down sponsored posts by reverse pitching and cold pitching, with real life examples.
If you’re like me, you likely have a ton of emails in your inbox on any given morning. I would like to keep the conversation going, but I won’t waste your time. I want to provide you with an amazing value because this audience (I mean you!) has been the vehicle that has allowed me to stay home with my children. It matters to me to give you great information that can allow you to do the same, if that is what you are seeking. I’ll be sending some follow up emails loaded with great information that I think you’ll really benefit from. If you enjoy them, stay on my list. If you don’t, it’s an easy one click to unsubscribe. This is a completely separate email list from my blog, so you won’t be receiving an update every time I post there…just when I have something to say that is pertinent to your interest in working from home.
