I'm the author of The Blogging Road Map, an expert resource that explains every step in starting a blog from scratch and growing it to a successful business.
I was once in your shoes, I knew I wanted to start a blog but I only had a rough idea of how to go about it, I didn't have all the pieces lined up conveniently, but today, I have grown all my blogs to several thousands of monthly traffic, and I earn a living blogging. In fact, I grew one of my blogs (owogram.com) to about 100k monthly traffic in less than 12 months.
I want to show you how to work towards similar results and how to replicate my strategies and tactics to start your own blog, and build a side business that makes you money.
Blogging can help you find a new source of income and craft a new future-proof career
This blogging road map summarizes my 7 years of experience in building and growing a blog. Check it out, it's FREE!
“I started my blog about 4 years ago, and I learned from the master. Give or take, I’m doing about 125k traffic every month, millions of impressions, which translates into a reasonable income monthly.”
Yes. There really is not much more to say here … you really can learn how to start a blog and then execute on that knowledge by yourself.
Plus, the final effect won’t necessarily be any worse than if you had a pro designer or developer on the payroll.
The tools have evolved a lot over the years – they’re very user-friendly and easy to grasp nowadays.
You need a computer and a fistful of dollars (Please note that you're not paying me, but you'll be paying third-party service providers like hosting company, and a domain registrar). All the other stuff is optional.
There’s no coding knowledge required, no website-owning experience, and no design skills or whatnots. The reason why this is the case is because of what I mentioned above – we simply have more functional and easier-to-use tools that we'll recommend..
In a word, yes. But that’s not the best path to take. While there are blogging platforms out there that allow you to build a blog entirely for free, they do carry a number of limitations: You’re stuck with the platform’s subdomain and can’t get your own domain name without paying a fee.
More so, you’re often not allowed to do much in terms of customization or installing new features. Your options to monetize the blog are limited – not all platforms allow you to sell your products or promote other people’s stuff via ads. You can be forced to host the platform’s own ads on your site. At the end of the day, if you instead choose to shell out a modest fee, you can do away with all of the above issues and create a fully functional blog on your own.
No. Blogging is not dead. Many people have been saying this for years now. It’s hard to even pinpoint when the phrase appeared for the first time.
There have been a number of supposed killers of blogging. First there was social media, Twitter and Facebook, then YouTube, live streaming services, and who knows what else. But! The data says otherwise. Raw data has one advantage, it doesn’t take sides.
Let me show you two things: According to WordPress.com, more than 400 million people view more than 21 billion blog pages each month. On top of that, users create nearly 90 million new posts and nearly 50 million new comments each month. WordPress – undoubtedly the biggest blog and website engine of them all – now powers more than 30% of all websites. Again, that’s all websites. So, NO. Blogging is far from dead.
Yes, of course. Just look at what we’ve done here with this very blog. When we started, the blog was making $0, understandably. But within ~12 months, we’ve grown it to over 100k monthly traffic, and thousands of dollars in monthly revenue.
How does it make money exactly and how have we achieved it? We’ll get to that later on. But let’s just say that it took us some trial and error to get to that level. We try to boil it all down in this guide and present you with a structured, systematic approach.
The sooner the better is quite simply the answer as the sooner you get online, the sooner you can start to mold your blog as it is an organic process.
Your blog will take time and will build as you add posts and content. Remember; the barrier to start blogging is low but the barrier to success is quite high
