How to Start A Profitable Blog RIGHT NOW!

I don’t profess to be the most competent of bloggers, but while I’m not the best, I’m probably still better than most newbie bloggers. Which basically means I’ve got some life advice to drop on you for how to take your blog from a ghost town to a blog that’s brimming with reader engagement and happiness. Here’s how to start a profitable blog RIGHT NOW, start earning extra income, and create a wonderful place that readers love to visit.

Your Ultimate Guide to Blogging

There are a few things to consider when you’re trying to become a better blogger. First of all, what is your blog really about? What kind of posts will you write? Will you share sponsored content, affiliate links, or other brand-endorsed posts? Will you do product reviews? There’s also the matter of SEO and social media tactics which can be terrifying if you have no idea where to start (don’t worry, I’m gonna help you!).  So, here’s your ultimate guide to blogging – how to start one, what to do (or not do), how to grow your audience and keep them, how to pitch brands you love, and more.

Blogging Basics

If you’re still new to the blogging game, make sure you’re self-hosted FIRST ( I use Hostgator) and set up an email list with Mailchimp or Convertkit to begin collecting emails. Mailchimp is free and easy, but ConvertKit is better in the long run for scaling your list and growing your business.

An email list is SO important because it ensures your readers go with you wherever you are. That means you’ll never lose them to an instagram or facebook update and they’ll always get your content straight to their inbox. For tips on how to set up your blog, check HERE.

Blogging Life + Networking 

Much of building yourself up in blogging is created by connecting with others. You can do this by networking with other bloggers, networking with brands, and also building a loyal readership that truly trusts you.

Blogging Tips + Gaining Loyal Readership

Building up a loyal readership and figuring out the best course for earning an extra income that’s both effective and ethical are super important. Learning to make your profitable blog work for you rather than against you can lay the foundation for years to come.

SEO Tips for Blogging + Growing Your Audience

Don’t skimp on SEO! I thought I could ignore it for years, but I promise you that you can’t! It will cripple your growth and hinder more than help you. Good SEO can help you grow exponentially so it’s worth doing your research on.
