I teach people about blogging and turn it into a Keep It Simple & Sweet online business to make money. No tech skills required. Starting a blog business is NOT a get rich quick scheme nor is it a Multi-Level Marketing business (MLM). I do not suggest anyone quit a job to begin a blogging business. It is a business that takes at least a year to just begin getting a small amount of side income. It can be done and is worth it if you have the determination to see it through. I hope this clarifies what it is not. Stick around to learn what it is.
I am a firm believer in transparency and do my best to fulfill the needs of my readers. So, you can always reach out to me and I will do my best to give you an answer.
Like a lot of people, I have no interest in working 40+ hours a week. So, I began researching different ways to start an online business. I want to be able to support my family, but I want time to enjoy time with them, too.
How exactly does a blog, turned online business, work?
First, I let's be very clear. Making money blogging is not simple, quick or guaranteed, but if you have the drive, discipline and time, you can do it, like so many of us have.
But since you asked how it works, I’ll give you the basic steps.
1. Start a blog
2. Research and write really great content (blog posts) about something you enjoy. Like cooking, DIY Projects, Crocheting, Knitting. There are lots of options, but you must decide for yourself or you will lose interest. Done right, like-minded people with find you. You’ll get to know each other.
3. Create Social profiles on Social Networks like Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook. These will help you market your posts and bring traffic to your website/blog.
Do you really mean I don’t need to have tech skills?
Yes. It used to be that you couldn't make a website without tech skills, but thanks to hosting sites like WordPress, that isn't the case anymore. Anyone can build a website, I'm confident you can, too.
Are you qualified to teach this?
Yes, but why should you believe me? I can only describe my personal experience.
I began my first blog in 1998 and since then I have had multiple blogs. Before this, I was a Technical Support Specialist and Desk Support Analyst for Fortune 500 companies in New York.
So, I'm confident I can help you.
So where do I go from here?
If you’re new, it’s good to start with the basics. On the next page, I talk about costs to start, free blogs, steps to get your blog up and running and more.
