How I Make Money eBook is FINALLY LAUNCHED!!!

How I Make Money Blogging

Holy moly – it is finally published!!!  I finally finished “How I Make Money Blogging: The Beginner’s Guide to Building a Money-Making Blog”!!! Woot!!! It hits the shelves today!!!  Yippee!!!

The official page can be found here, but here is what you probably want to know the most:


I started Budgeting in the Fun Stuff (BFS) at the end of February 2010 and grew it into a site that has made more than $42,000 as of the end of June 2012.

I also used 2011 to start several other sites, buy six additional sites to co-own, and I found other ways to make money online. I went from making a salary of $35,500 a year in a cubicle from 2005-2011 to working for myself from home by July 2011!

Since then, I have brought in $6,000 – $23,000 a month from my online endeavors!!!

  1. Congrats! Let me know if you’re looking for other people to report on trying it. I have a baby blog right now and I’d love to!

  2. Just finished your ebook. Nice to find all that info in a condensed, easy to follow format. I’m excited to get started and hopefully can get a site up and running by the end of the year. I said it, now I have to do it!

  3. @Lance, thank you! I see you already jumped in!

    @Kathleen, woot!!! Thank you!!!

    @Steve, I was actually surprised by several things – the writing is not as hard as the editing and publishing…

    @Jenna, thanks!

    @Andi B., thanks but I think we are good – I have 5 or 6 challengers so far…I went a little nuts…

    @Geoff, way more work than I thought but I am so happy! Thank you!

    @Buck, hahahaha. Ummm, I suck at crafts… 😉

    @Motivated Madison, thank you!

    @Kim, yay for finishing!!! Let me know how it goes when you jump in!!! I will hold you to that end of year goal. 🙂

  4. Congratulations Crystal!

    An eBook is going to take you to the next level, which is the stratosphere. I predict that you will have to update this book to cover launching an eBook to supplement site income.

  5. Since most of your business is based on link sales for your clients, how stable is this business model considering these panda and penguin updates. I have seen your traffic has dropped along with your PR.

    (Please can you email me with your answer if you don’t wanna display this comment in public, I don’t want to affect your sales but I would certainly like to know the answer, thanks 🙂 )

  6. @Marie, thank you!

    @Funny, lol, thanks!

    @Deep, my eBook covers direct ads that were affected by Google more than other stuff, but it also covers the other ad types and other ways to make money blogging. I tried to make sure everyone would know to diversify.

    As for BFS, my traffic dropped 20-25% and my PR is a 0 as of April, but I still have brought in $2600 with BFS from April-June. I figure that making more than $500 a month with direct ads from a single win is the goal of most beginning bloggers and I have not brought in less than $500 from BFS since August 2010 (I started BFS at the end of February 2010).

  7. Just bought the book this morning and devoured it already! Congrats on launching an informative, no geek speak book on a topic that seems insurmountable when you’re starting out. You are an inspiration and hope one day that my GDI parnter Julie and I will be as successful at this as you have been!
