Blogging As A Side Gig: Get Help Starting Your Blog


This post contains affiliate links however I was NOT compensated for this review. 

I have been blogging since February of 2007. That is nine years of writing on a total on three blogs. I’ve done it casually and run ads here and there, but probably have made a whopping $50 in the first eight and a half of those years.

I know a few people who have made blogging their full-time income, or used a blog to launch a successful writing career. I had a full time job for most of my blogging years, but when I left it this past May, I decided I needed to get serious about it.

A successful blog needs two parts: content and an audience. I felt I could handle the content part, but finding an audience and marketing myself, well, that part was a little more difficult. I majored in nursing, not marketing.

I’d heard of Elite Blog Academy through a few bloggers and when a sale rolled around, my husband and discussed whether to try it or not. Paying money to learn about the marketing side of writing a blog does not sound very frugal, but I will tell you this, I am someone who is cruising into her tenth year of post-secondary education, and I have never yet regretted learning something new.

I took the leap of faith and it was worth it.

I am not one to recommend a product unless I use it myself. I don’t blame anyone if they just want to figure it out themselves, but I like to have a little guidance. Since I am in grad school, it has taken me three months to really sit down and work through all of the steps.

I am still tweaking things (I still am working on my “elevator pitch”), but I am finally starting to see increased page views, more comments, and a little bit of ad revenue. This month’s income should be small- maybe $10-14, but that is almost a quarter of what I made blogging in almost nine years!

Blogging can be a viable side gig, and if you have something you can talk about, you may be able to make it into something that brings you passive income. Ask yourself: is there something you are passionate about that you are never tired of talking about?

I’ve been blogging about money since 2009. I am always thinking about pennies to pinch, frugal recipes, side income, and how to be free from the need to work full time. When I think of my friends in my Facebook feed, I see people who are passionate and knowledgeable about so many things: baking, sewing, sports, running, rescue animals,  photography, real estate, science fiction, art, fashion, politics. Blogging is one way to turn that passion into a little (or a lot) of side income.

This course promises to produce measurable results, and comes with a 100% money-back guarantee, which means you’ve literally got nothing to lose. However, you should know that enrollment for Elite Blog Academy is extremely limited, and will only be open for five days, beginning on February 22nd.

The good news is that before the doors open, Elite Blog Academy is offering a FREE training series called Blogging Made Simple. It includes three powerful video lessons intended to help you eliminate the overwhelm and instead focus on the tasks that will help you make the biggest impact. If you are a blogger or have even just thought about blogging, you will NOT want to miss it!
