Part 1: How To Start A Blog | Part 2: My Favorite Tools & Resources | Part 3: How To Monetize Your Blog
So there are SO many ways to monetize your blog or website. Don't have a blog yet? You should seriously do it. Like Right now. See my post HERE on how to get started on setting a blog up. Now when I started my blog as a brand new wife and mother, we were living on a super tight budget, in a tiny cabin which barely had running water on my in-law's property. My blog really started as a creative hobby, and my heart was to give things away for free to other people who couldn't afford to spend money. I was making stuff for myself, so why not share it? This focus on "giving away" things that I could otherwise sell ended up being a blessing, because it gave me an audience, and platform that I otherwise wouldn't have had.
I've been blogging since 2012, so about 4 years, and it's funny to look back at the first time my blog made actual money. It was around $100 for a month's worth of content. It really wasn't enough for all the hours and effort I put into it, but it was money... I was getting paid to do my hobby. I was so excited. Now I look back and chuckle. ;)
I just want you all to know that this isn't a get rich quick thing. You need to develop quality content, be strategic and patient.
