In case you didn’t know: you can make money blogging!
If you recently started a blog (I show you the exact steps to start a profitable blog here) the next step is setting it up for bussiness!
In the past, I always used to see all those famous bloggers making tons of money every month, but I thought you needed thousands of followers in social media and hundreds of views in order to generate an income from it. Of couse, I didn’t have that amount of followers (I currently have less than 500 followers on Instagram) and my blog traffic was very low (less than 800 monthly views), so I just let it go and thought I wasn’t good enough to make money with it.
I started my old blog 6 years ago, and it wasn’t until 2 months ago (when I switched to a self-hosted blog) that I realized you could actually MAKE MONEY as a small blogger too!
In just 30 days I had made my first $160 blogging. I felt so extremely proud of myself, and it also motivated me to keep blogging more and more because I knew if I put effort in what I did it would pay off.
While I certainly don’t know everything, I’ve learned a lot since I started, and I can tell you it is possible. Everyone can make money blogging.
In this post I’ll be sharing with you the strategies I used to turn my little blog into a little income-producing business.
I feel like 2017 was a good year in terms of reading.
It was also a year of growth and lots of new experiences (both good and bad, but mostly bad), so I felt like I needed some help -or at least some answers-. Something to show me what path I should follow from there on.
As a bookworm that I am, I recurred to books.
PS: never underestimate the power of a good book.
Valentine’s Day is slowly approaching, so it’s time to start getting ready for it.
To be honest, I’m not really into the whole romantic spirit of it, but I do love chocolate! And Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to spoil yourself and the ones you love with chocolate and other goodies.
Since most stores tend to offer disccount codes and promotions on this special day, it’s a good occasion to look for stuff you need or send a gift to someone you love. Show them you really care and make them feel loved!
January has been my second month blogging, and the month I’ve made my first affiliate sale!
Now I can totally prove that you not only CAN make money as a new blogger, but you SHOULD be making it!
Because honestly, it’s the easiest thing ever. It just takes a little effort and absolutely everyone can do it. If you want to start a blog, I show you how to do it here. Two months ago I would have NEVER believed that I’ll be making money with my blog, but here I am!
In general, January has been a good month for me and for the blog. Traffic kept growing since I put more effort on Pinterest and writing new content. I wrote a long list with post ideas to have me covered for the next week (college classes start again!).
I also turned 20 years old on the 18th and it was the day I made my first affiliate sale. Guess it was the best birthday present!
But to be honest, I don’t think it was a gift, but the result of hard work and constancy.
Us, college students, have a really bad reputation when it comes to eating habits.
Basically, we’re not famous for having the healthiest diets.
Let me tell you one thing: it is possible to eat healthy when you are a college student.
“I don’t have enough time to cook” is something we’ve all said at some point of your lives. But it’s 2018! This is the era of fitness and veganism, so that’s not an excuse anymore.
You can eat well and even SAVE time! There are tons of easy and healthy recipes out there, just one click away from you.
When I started college I made the promise to myself to never eat “bad” again, or at least try to eat as healthy as possible.
This doesn’t mean I haven’t eat pizza in two years. OF COURSE I had (pizza is queen), but not on a daily basis. I mean, you can treat yourself occasionally (treating yourself is a healthy habit too) and still eat well.
Here are some of the tips that work for me to stay healthy while attending college:
Red is definitely one of my favorite colours. Sadly, you can’t see much red in Winter (unless it’s in shop windows), so I’m anxiously waiting for Spring to come. I may not see too many flowers these days but I still can wear them thanks to Sammydress!
