Hi everybody! Yes, it is official. I have lost my mind and decided to start another blog – How I Make Money Blogging.
It is a brand new baby blog that has only just taken its first steps into the blogging world. It doesn’t have any beefy info on it yet, but I wanted those of you who were interested in making money blogging to be able to follow along as it develops.
My plans as they stand now are that I will be using HIMMB to blog about blogging more than I do on Budgeting in the Fun Stuff (yes, believe it or not, I am holding myself back). I will also be using it to give you a behind the scenes look at working from home full time, which I will be starting to do before the end of this year! Woot!
Budgeting in the Fun Stuff will still cover the personal finance aspects of my life, including how we will get by without my day job. But How I Make Money Blogging will get into the nitty-gritty details of what I actually do online to make money blogging and through writing in general. It will be where I can tell you all about my freelance work, online work problems, and how exactly I am growing my little blogging empire as I go. 🙂
I do hope you will enjoy it as much as I hope you enjoy BFS! I also would love to know what subjects you would like to see covered first!
My beginning plan is to write a general post about how I am making money online right now. I will then follow that up with a more detailed look at each section – like staff writing. I am sure I can come up with a billion things to say on the subject, but before I start gabbing away, I wanted to ask what you’d like to read about.
Can you think of something specific you would like for me to cover? What parts of making money online would you like to hear about next?
FYI: I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 per year. I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $70,000-$90,000 through blogging, professional pet sitting, hubby's reffing, and our rental home. If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you, PLUS a free custom header banner from me!). Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!
