Can You Make Money Blogging? Life as Mom

I’ve been blogging for almost nine years. In that time, I’ve helped my family get out of debt, build savings, and even travel the world.

What was once a joke about folks blogging in their jammies in the basement has become a bona fide career. If you’re looking for a way to build a career you love, blogging just might be for you.

And Building a Framework: The Ultimate Blogging Handbook can help you make money blogging.

One of the best resources I’ve read recently on how to write a blog is Building a Framework: The Ultimate Blogging Handbook by Abby Lawson. I read through this back in April and was amazingly impressed. I WISH this book had existed when I started my blogging journey. Seriously, if you’re starting a blog in 2016, this is the book to read.

Now keep in mind, Abby is “selling the dream” in terms of the money she says you can make. I do not make six figures but I also don’t have the time to make this my full-time job, either. That said, you can pay some bills with a successful blog — and I think this is a valuable resource to help you do that.

This handbook is a great one to get you started. It contains helpful tutorials on how to set up all the things you’ll need for your site to work well and attract readers, how to manage social media, how to use wordpress, etc.

(Even if a six-figure income isn’t your definition of success, this book can help you get your blog off the ground.)

(This is an affiliate link, so I’ll make a small portion of the sale from everyone who purchases through my link. So thanks for your support of Life as Mom!)

Other Helpful Resources:

Last year I purchased the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit and was amazed at all it included. Seriously. AMAZED. I’ve been at this business a long time and seen a lot in my time. I learned a TON from last year’s blogger’s bundle. So much so that as soon as this year’s bundle was available to affiliates, I jumped at the chance to buy it early. That is not something I do lightly. Trust me.

Now keep in mind, anyone selling a business resource is selling you a dream. They cannot promise that you will see the same success as they have. And they may exaggerate the success that they’ve had.

As with all things, we have to filter the wheat from the chaff. Chaff aside, there are some great resources in this bundle that can help you grow as a blogger if you’re willing to put in the time.

I like learning and I like improving my craft. I do not make six figures but I also don’t have the time to make this my full-time job, either. That said, you can pay some bills with a successful blog — and I think this is a valuable resource to help you do that. The bundle is only available for a few more days, so snatch it up here.

    I am so glad that we are able to talk and chat as much as we do — you continuously make me laugh and smile. Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to share my new book! I hope you’re having a great week so far.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
