How You Continue to Decrease Your Chances of Making Money with Your Blog
I’m going to get a little personal in this post.
Not about my personal life but I’m going to pretend it’s just you and me sitting in a quiet bar enjoying whatever libations you like. I’ll have a dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives please.
Going through the history of this site it started off strong. I was banging out posts left and right because I knew I had to get a jumpstart on this “how to make money blogging” niche. After a bit I slowed down a little and focused on writing much meatier pieces of content.
After that, I stopped.
I didn’t quit on the blog but I set out on a mission.
From the beginning this blog was meant to go hand-in-hand with its sister health blog, Thrive/Strive and follow its progress. But as I continued to see blogs in other niches and people curious if you could make money with them I started up a couple of other blogs.
You see, it’s very easy to make money blogging when you talk about how to make money blogging. I’ll get into that a bit later in this post but for now, keep that in mind.
What I had to find out is what it takes to make money in other niches.
Because that’s how my mind works.
I see all of these people around me wanting to start blogs but they want to do so around things they enjoy. Plus, many of them think that they can’t start a blog on how to make money if they don’t have a blog on how to make money.
Sneaky side note: Go through the history of many how to make money blogs to see how they began. Don’t be surprised if a lot of them started as something else and when they got some traffic they pivoted over to the how to make money stuff. It’s hard to find some that actually have blogs in other niches that do well.
