Trust me, I am just as surprised as you are at this title. When I started my blog as a food and fitness blog in March 2017, I never would have imagined starting over with a whole new niche in September 2017. My life and priorities took a major flip and I decided the blog should come along with me (even if it meant I had to give up on the idea of making money from it.) Well, to my surprise, the blog did the exact opposite; it sky-rocketed and started making money. Now, this doesn’t mean that if you start trying to make your blog just like mine you’ll be successful. Quite the opposite. I say make your blog as unique to you as possible. Put the statistics and worry aside and stick to what you know and who you are. After that, let me share with you the strategies and techniques I used to tell you how I increased my blog traffic from 10K to 125K in 3 months!
I have seen huge success from my blog in a short amount of time and all it took was getting seriously organized when it came to scheduling my time and social shares. If you are hoping to get organized in your day to day life, I highly recommend the Simplify + Planner and you can read my full review on it here: Organize Your Life for the New Year. If you want to know what it takes to get seriously organized when it comes to your blog’s content, then read on. This post has all the best things to consider when creating your blog as well as how to organize your blogging schedule itself.
Blogging for money was an idea I heard about many years ago and I just didn’t think it was “for me.” Yet, at the same time I continued on feeling like writing was going to play a huge part in my life. To me this meant I probably was supposed to write a book. So, I tried writing books. I tried writing a lot of them and wound up deleting them all. Nothing ever felt right. Then somehow, BAM, I just knew I had to start a blog. After we downsized our house I gave up my photography business, Tom’s job got crazy inconsistent and I knew I had to make something work where I could still homeschool our kids while also making money and setting my own hours. That’s not asking too much, right? Now, after 10 months of seriously hard work, I finally figured out how to do it, I figured our how to turn a blog into an extra income.
