Frequently Asked Blogger Questions

I get frequently asked blogger questions all the time and thought what a better way to share with others then to outline the questions and answers in one blog post.  Often I find people don't understand blogging.  I'm going to eliminate a lot of confusion when it comes to blogging and really help strip away any confusion when it comes to blogging as a profession.  My hope is that you can walk away after reading this post and have a good idea of how blogging works and what it looks in the day to day and YES I'll be answering the famous question- how do blogs make money! 🙂

Before you keep reading I wanted to let you know that my friend Kate just opened her Six Figure Blogging Academy!  It's only open until Tuesday January 19th.  I took Kate's course and it completely changed my business! 

I couldn’t think of a better person to share with my audience than Kate.  She created a six-figure blog herself and then created a course that shares all of her knowledge.  I took the course and my blog has never been the same!  Even as a seasoned blogger I learned so much. I wish I would have had it in the beginning of my blogging journey.  

Kate only opens up her course once in a while, so don't miss out!

Sharing all the frequently asked questions I get as a blogger!

 

Ok, let's dive into the frequently asked questions about blogging that I get!

 

Question #1: How Do You Know What To Blog About?

 

I think knowing what to blog about should come naturally and easy for you.  I think it should be a passion of yours or an experience you've had, or even something you're really good at.  It's really what you find interesting and will keep your attention.  For me it was easy to want to blog about natural living and natural beauty because I loved it so much!  It was easy for me to research more about the topic because I would do it even if I wasn't getting paid.  I know people who blog about Lyme disease and how they live a healthy lifestyle despite it, people who blog all about how to keep their home and life organized- the list is endless!  I always encourage people to make a list of what they're good at and comes easy to them and also a list of their passions.  This can really help them to see what to blog about.  

 

Question #2: When Do You Start Making Money From Your Blog?

 

You can start making money the first month you create a blog- really!  It might not be thousands of dollars initially but you can literally start creating income the minute you push publish on your first blog post.  With consistency and getting affiliate links(products you promote from brands who give you a small percentage of the sale), you can start earning money right away.  As far as making a consistent income from your blog it's up to you on where you want to take your blog but it's totally possible to start making a living off of your blog in even a year if you work hard.  I've known people who've done it and read so many stories.

My wish for you is that you start the blog you've been thinking about in 2021!

 

Question #3: Don't You Ever Run Out Of Ideas To Blog About?

 

Never!  If anything I have to many ideas.  I always keep a running list of ideas I can blog about so I always have content to share.  In the beginning of blogging you want to establish some core posts as I like to call them that can really help you form the basis of your blog.  For instance, if you're blogging about Lyme disease, you could share things that have helped in your Lyme journey, share some of your favorite resources, and products.  You could also start a monthly series where you spotlight someone you've met that is living their best life with lyme disease and healing protocols they've used.  Then you could also have a whole section on things you could do to help protect yourself from contracting Lyme disease.  You're then able to capture a bigger audience because people who don't have Lyme would want to read.  See how the list just keeps going?!  As you are consistent your audience will also tell you what they want to learn more about too.

 

Question #4: Do You Have To Be On Social Media To Blog?

 

No!  You don't need to have a following at all to start blogging.  I didn't!  Although a lot of people look at social media as the end all, be all for a blog, it's actually not.  Your email list is far more important and your blog itself.  Instagram and Facebook change all the time, and can make it hard for everyone to see your content all the time.  With your email list(an email list are email addresses from your audience. You have them all on one email marketing platform where you can email them all at once) you're able to directly connect with your audience this way!  You can share with them the latest information right to their inbox about a recent blog post.  Social media is a great tool in your blogging toolbox but it is not the thing I would focus on in the beginning if you're wanting to make blogging a career and earn an income.  It would be something I would tackle later once you have a blog and email list in place.  

 

Question #5: How Do You Make Money From Blogging?

 

This is the #1 one question when it comes to frequently asked blogger questions!  I get it, I was the same way before I started to blog.  I didn't understand how it all worked.  I'm going to share with you how I've made money blogging.  There are SO many ways though!  

  • I make money through ads on my website.  You can sign up with an ad network once you have so many page views and start making ad income.  You can also start making ad income right away when you're just starting out with Google Adsense.  There's no page view requirement so you can literally start making money right away when you start your blog.  
  • I also make money through affiliates.  This is income as I mentioned earlier that I make from promoting a product or service, and then the brand gives me a commission on the number of sales I have for that specific product.  
  • Another form of income is through sponsored posts.  This is where you work directly with a brand to promote their products whether it's a sponsored blog post where you're sharing how you use the product, or a video, etc.  
  • I also sell my own products or services and make an income off of that.  This could be an ebook, course, guide, group coaching program, membership, one on one coaching, or even a physical product.  There are so many options!  
  • I also make money from consulting for businesses and brands.  Whether that's testing a new product or helping them before they even create the product.
  • Speaking at events.  Once you've been blogging for a bit and have established yourself as an expert you often start getting invitations to come and speak at events.  
  • Freelance writing for large publications.  From magazines, to other blogs, to books and more.

*I'm sure there are other ways people have made money from blogging but I'm sharing my specific ways I've made income.

 

Affiliate marketing is one way I make income from my blog.

Question #6: Should I Design My Own Website In The Beginning?

 

No! Absolutely not.  Custom websites are expensive and you want to make sure you're actually going to be consistent before you start shelling out thousands of dollars.  In 2021 getting a blog up and running has never been easier!  You can literally have it up in a day and you don't need to know how to code or anything.  Instead of a custom theme you can search for blog themes and just pick one you like.  They even have FREE blog themes.  If you do pay for one it's often pretty inexpensive still- anywhere from $10-$60 dollars.  The themes they have already made are still super great and offer a lot of benefits.  

 

Question #7: What Is Your Biggest Piece Of Advice For A Beginning Blogger?

 

I love this question!  My biggest piece of advice would be to invest in a course in the very beginning of your blogging journey.  I cannot tell you how much it helped me and that was after 3 years of blogging!  I wished I would have known about blogging courses or experts that could have helped me.  It could have saved me so much time and overwhelm.  I realized blogging is like any other business, when you start a job you get trained, or you go to school for that specific career choice.  Blogging is no different.  If I would have known what I know now I could have 10x my results a lot quicker and avoided so many pit falls.  

 

Question #8:  How Much Does It Cost To Start Blogging?

 

I get this question a lot too when it comes to frequently asked blogger questions. It literally can cost you around $35-$65 to start your blog and that's for your first year!  This is also the current stat for 2021.  It's the most inexpensive business model out there!  You don't need product, or huge inventory, a building- it's pretty awesome.  If you've thought blogging was expensive- think again.  It's definitely a good business model.

 

Questions #9: How Much Time Do You Spend On Your Blog?

 

This is something that has changed over the years.  When I first started I spent my daughter's nap times, and at night when she went to bed blogging.  Anytime I could get.  I would also spend time on the weekend when my husband could watch her.  This continued for several years before I had any child care.  In the beginning I would spend roughly 20 hours a week on the blog.  Now I spend anywhere from 5-30 hours depending on the season and if I'm working on something specific.  But then I also have a virtual assistant that spends a lot of time helping me, so I have to take that in to account as well. 

That sums up my post on the most frequently asked blogger questions.   Have a question I didn't answer?  Ask below!  

As you can see there has never been a better time to start blogging!  From getting all the help you need, to virtual being the wave of the future, to creating the life you want and loving it.  Blogging hits all the marks and more.

There’s Never Been A Better Time To Start Blogging

There’s Never Been A Better Time To Start Blogging

There's never been a better time to start blogging and I truly believe that!  I'm continuing my blogging series that I started last week.  Today I'm sharing my thoughts on the job climate in general and why I think there's never been a better time to start blogging.  

If you didn't read last week's blog post, be sure to check it out here.  I am sharing how blogging changed my life.  I walk you through 4 of my top reasons.  I'm also sharing some personal stories in hopes that you might realize I'm just an ordinary girl who decided to go for it.  

Before you keep reading I wanted to let you know that my friend Kate just opened her Six Figure Blogging Academy!  It's only open until Tuesday January 19th.  I took Kate's course and it completely changed my business!

Ok, let's dive into why there's never been a better time to start blogging!

There has never been a better time to create a life that you love!

 

2020 Made It Clear-  

I don't know about you but 2020 taught me a handful of life lessons.  One of them I realized is that nothing is for sure.  Things can change from minute to minute.  It also made me realize how being online had never been such a great thing!  I say this lightly because I'm not trying to brag or sound arrogant but nothing changed for me when it came to my job as a blogger in 2020.  I didn't have to wear a mask at work- I work at home.  I didn't have to follow some new protocol, because I work at home.  My audience is made of amazing people that found me online and they were still there, if not more present because of everything being online once COVID hit.  It made me realize how convenient it was for people if I was online.  

What if my business was based on presenting the information in person, or traveling all the time?  My career would have been affected much more but since I was already online or should I say “virtual” my blog didn't miss a beat.  I was still doing the same thing, but had more of an engaged audience because people were more online than they had ever been.  

There's never been a better time to start blogging, because there's never been a better time to be online as a business!  It's made this transition seem, dare I say seamless in a lot of ways.  While I feel for so many who have been struggling with their job, having to learn new protocols and so on or lost their job all together, I haven't felt it because I had already positioned my business online as a blogger.  I'm telling you this again not to brag but to encourage you to start the blog you've always thought about starting- to create a business that will stand the test of time and where the future is going.  I'm telling you this because blogging has been a game changer for my family and I wouldn't be where I am today without it.

Create The Life You Want-

Another thing 2020 taught me is that life can be short and if you're not loving the life you're living than what's the point?  I see so many people keep working jobs that they aren't passionate about.  I get it, you have to put food on the table, but what if you could have both?  Work at something you're so passionate about, while earning a living.  It's possible and I'm living proof.  We live in a country where you can literally be and do whatever you want and you have the freedom to pursue your dreams!  It's pretty awesome.

Instead of wasting away working a job you don't love, why not create the life you want with a job you're passionate about?  What if you woke up each day excited to start your day?  To learn more about something, to share your knowledge with others?  Your whole outlook on life would change.  

There's never been a better time to start creating the life you want through blogging.  To have more flexibility, to enjoy your life to the fullest, to see your family more, be your own boss and love your life- you deserve all these things. If you're not excited about the life you created, maybe it's time to build a new one.  To do something you can feel good about and that makes you have a skip in your step.  2020 taught me that a lot can be stripped away but if I still have my job and love what I do, it makes life so much more enjoyable!

Being able to be virtual with my job has been the biggest blessing in the current climate.

 

Being Virtual Is The Way To Go-

It's never been more apparent that being virtual as a business has a lot of perks.  This last year really proved to be the year that made being virtual the best thing ever.  Most people that were virtual were still able to run their business as usual and not miss a beat.  It makes business so easy and convenient when you're virtual.  You're able to be wherever you want and still run your business.  You can still operate even when there's a pandemic happening.  It's also perfect because that's where the future seems to be headed.  

With everything virtual already, people are used to living their life online.  From grocery shopping online, clothes shopping online, ordering food online, you name it, the online world has taken over and it's not going anywhere.  People have never been more online than they are right now!

There's never been a better time to start creating the life you want through blogging, because it's a career that has only grown over the last 10 years.  Blogging will continue to grow as more people seek out information online.  It's the perfect time to start creating a job that can be virtual and is online.  You will be creating a job that is on the up and up.

 

There has never been a better time to blog with all the technology advancements!

 

Blogging in 2021 Is SO Much Easier-

When I started blogging 7 years ago the blogging landscape looked a lot different than it does today!  There wasn't tutorials everywhere on how to do things, there wasn't videos and blogs on how to blog.  It was a lot of trial and error.  Thankfully things have changed and today in 2021 you can find endless resources on blogging!  If you want information for it, it's available to you.  So many companies have created the easiest websites to set up, created countless guides, offer support and so on.  Your blog could be up and running right away if you wanted.  With technology advancements, new plugins, blogging in 2021 is streamlined and so much better.  It's the cheapest it's ever been to start a blog!  You can literally have a blog up and not spend tons of money out of pocket.  You can't say that for most businesses!  

There's never been a better time to start blogging than today because you're going to save yourself so many headaches compared to years ago.  You'll be able to get the help you need and bypass so many things that newbie bloggers faced back in the day.  You'll be able to plug and play from the very beginning.

As you can see there has never been a better time to start blogging!  From getting all the help you need, to virtual being the wave of the future, to creating the life you want and loving it.  Blogging hits all the marks and more.

How Blogging Changed My Life

How Blogging Changed My Life

I'm so excited to write this post on how blogging changed my life!  I have been wanting to share my experience as a blogger now for quite some time.  I have been blogging now for 7 years- which sounds crazy!  I started in the fall of 2013.  I wasn't consistent though until January of 2015.  I know the statement how blogging changed my life is big but I truly mean it and want to share with you how it has. 

Before you keep reading I wanted to let you know that my friend Kate just opened her Six Figure Blogging Academy!  It's only open until Tuesday January 19th.  I took Kate's course and it completely changed my business! 

I couldn’t think of a better person to share with my audience than Kate.  She created a six-figure blog herself and then created a course that shares all of her knowledge.  I took the course and my blog has never been the same!  Even as a seasoned blogger I learned so much.

How it all started…

 

I had wanted to blog for a couple years before I actually published my first post.  I finally just did it because I knew I would always find an excuse not too.  I had really changed my life over to a more natural lifestyle in 2010.  I read a book called No More Dirty Looks and it literally transformed my life!  I couldn't look at a tube of toothpaste anymore without wondering what was lurking inside.  I had already started to eat clean, but had no idea about all the toxins in our everyday products.  As I learned more, I wanted to share it with anyone who would listen.  Friends and family kept encouraging me to start a blog.  It seemed so daunting at first but I realized I just had to start- and so I did.  

Looking back at my first blog post I have a mix of emotions.  On one hand I'm so proud of how far I've come and the other hand I can't believe how little I knew about blogging. I was armed with passion and a desire to share with others.  This drive I believe helped me be consistent in my journey and not stop even when things got hard.

I want to share with you how blogging has changed my life.  I get questions all the time asking me how I got started, how much money I make and all the things. I get it, blogging can seem kind of mysterious in a way.  I want to demystify blogging over the next several weeks.  I'll be sharing a handful of blog posts that hopefully clear away some confusion and help convince you of the many benefits of blogging- because there are so many!  

Today I want to focus on how it's impacted my life in so many positive ways and how blogging has changed my life for the better.

Blogging has given me the flexibility I craved-

 

I really got serious about blogging after my first daughter was born.  She was 6 months and I knew I had to change something.  I had my own organic salon at the time and while I loved my clientele and job, I didn't love that I had to be away from my daughter so much and in order to make money I literally had to be working on a client.  It quickly got old as my hubs would get off work at 5 and then I would start work.  Then I would work Saturdays and even Sundays.  We didn't have any family time, or flexibility.  I didn't see my hubs hardly and I had to physically be working in order to make money.  I remember thinking how am I going to have more kids?!  I started to blog but it was sporadic at night when I wasn't working.  While I did it for a couple months and I know a lot of people do it as well, it was too much for me.  I knew I needed to change something. I told my hubs that I wanted to quit doing hair and start blogging full time.  He was super supportive.  We knew for this to happen we needed to move out of our current house and downsize.  I wasn't making any money from the blog and there was no way we could support our current living situation if I wasn't working as well.  

So we downsized.  We went from living in a house to living in a condo.  It was hard but at the same time so worth it!  I remember being excited about all the time I would gain to work on the blog if I moved.  Once we moved I spent all my free time on the blog.  I would spend nap times, night time and any other time I could get.  I told myself I had to post a blog post once per week and I did.  Slowly it started to grow.  Looking back I knew nothing, but had a vision of what I wanted.  I craved flexibility and a job that I would make that a reality and that I loved.  Well, I got both!

Now, I can take time off when I want.  I can work where I want.  I don't even have to leave my house.  

I can be with my kids all day if I want or have a babysitter come and work on the blog for 4 hours.  I set my schedule and my time and that is literally the best feeling in the world!  If my kids get sick or I don't feel well, I don't call in sick- I'm the boss.  I take the day off.  I can work on a trip if I need too.  Having flexibility with my job has been the biggest game changer in my life.  Blogging has afforded me that luxury.

Blogging as increased my income in more ways than I thought possible!

 

Blogging has increased my income-

 

Often people don't want to talk about money, even though I know it's on everyone's mind!  Let's be real most people can't blog just for the sake of blogging.  Great if you can but eventually everyone want's to get paid- me included.  I never realized the vast opportunities and income possibilities that blogging would bring to me.  Like most people when I started I had no idea how bloggers even got paid.  Little did I know that you could actually make a decent earning from sharing your passion and helping others.

Blogging has literally helped my husband and I financially so many times.  I don't know where we would be if we hadn't had it for specific life events. For example, my husband got laid off in 2018.  My blog supported us for literally a year while he built up his business and found something new.  We weren't stressed about the future like we could have been since we had the blog to help support us during that time.  It was also huge this past year as my husband ran for a political office in our county.  He had to step away from his job for about 5 months and during that time he wasn't getting paid.  My blog was able to help us out financially during that time when he was campaigning and give us incredible flexibility.  The amount of money I've been able to make compared to my previous job, while also having the flexibility has been the real winner.  I could have had a 9-5 job but with the life events I just shared that would have added more stress to our lives.  The magic for me has been having the earning potential, plus flexibility.  It's the best of both worlds!

It also has given me the income to be able to get help when it comes to cleaning my house, and babysitting.  I can create the life I want.  I can take Fridays off because I want too and not be worried about whether I'll get paid for those hours.  My income has increased more than I ever imagined and I feel like I'm not working harder but smarter.  I don't equate hours worked to hours earned.  Not that I don't work hard, because I do but I'm not clocking in 8 hours everyday to get paid an hourly wage.  The sky is the limit for how much money I want to make.  There is no ceiling!  As a stylist there were only so many hours in a day and only so long I could work.  With blogging there is no cap on earning potential.  You really are your own boss and creator of your life.  I couldn't love this more.  

 

I didn't realize I could make more money doing something I love, while at the same time having a flexible schedule, getting more time with my kids and creating the life I love.  

 

I have been able to work with so many amazing brands and make some awesome friendships because of blogging.

 

Blogging has brought the best relationships into my life-

 

I can't even begin to tell you the amount of relationships it has brought into my life.  From meeting fellow bloggers and having them become some of my closest friends, to creating dream brand partnerships- I've met some of the best people blogging!  It's amazing when you step out and open yourself up to possibilities all the things that come your way.  I've had the opportunity to work with some of the top brands in the natural industry, consult for some of the largest corporations and meet some of the coolest people on this blogging journey.  It's more than just a job to me.  I get to share so many amazing brands with my audience and work alongside other bloggers who truly are passionate about seeing their world change for the better.  Sometimes I pinch myself that I'm able to be a part of it all!

I remember thinking that being a mom was amazing but often felt a little lonely in the beginning.  Then blogging entered my life and really changed that perspective entirely.  Even though I work from home, I never feel lonely.  I have this amazing community I've built online.  It's afforded me the chance to have adult connection and interaction, while still caring for my kids.  Whenever I talk to other bloggers they always say the relationship piece is something they weren't expecting to be as great as it has been.  I couldn't agree more.  It's like co-workers for any other job.

I am always learning and growing since I've become a blogger.

 

Blogging has created an environment where I'm constantly learning-

 

I'm learning all the time!  This has been such a fun aspect of being a blogger.  I'm always growing in my knowledge.  My passion for natural living and natural beauty has only grown these last 7 years.  I've had to pivot and learn new concepts and stay up to date on all the latest.  It's a little like honing your craft and becoming the best you can be when it comes to your skill or job.  They say if you are in an industry for 5 years then you are an expert.  I couldn't agree more!  The more I'm surrounded by like minded people, the more I learn from them.  

It's clear to see that blogging changed my life.  It made what was once was a passion of mine and turned it into a full fledged job that now helps others on their health and wellness journey.  It's amazing what one step can create.  

I'm so glad I branched out, took the first step and didn't wait.  Today there are so many more resources and tools you can have that can really help accelerate your blogging journey.  I wished I would have had these resources when I started off, it would have helped me so much and sped up my growth.  One resource that is my friend Kate's blogging course.

I wanted to let you know that my friend Kate just opened her Six Figure Blogging Academy!  It's only open until Tuesday January 19th.  I took Kate's course and it completely changed my business! 

I couldn’t think of a better person to share with my audience than Kate.  She created a six-figure blog herself and then created a course that shares all of her knowledge.  I took the course and my blog has never been the same!  Even as a seasoned blogger I learned so much. I wish I would have had it in the beginning of my blogging journey.  

Kate only opens up her course once in a while, so don't miss out!

I make smoothies in my Blendtec nearly everyday!

 

Giveaway Day #8 – We are giving away a Blendtec Blender!

I don’t know what I would do without my Blendtec blender? Seriously. I use it everyday- sometimes twice a day.  I make my hub’s smoothie and my smoothie every morning.  Then I also use it for sauces, blending pancake mixes, juicing, making nut butters- the list is endless!  And now you can have the chance to win one too!

Check out all of Blendtec Blender here!

*Read below for more thoughts on the Blendtec Blender:

A high powered blender is a must in my book.  I’ve had this blender for over five years now and I love it!  It works so well.  I had a Bullet before I had a Blendtec but felt like I was limited to what I could put in the blender and it wasn’t as high powered.  This blender can shred kale, and anything else until smooth and creamy.  I use it every single day.  Yep, you heard me right.  Sometimes a couple times a day.  This thing definitely gets a workout.  

I make a smoothie for my husband and I every morning in it.  I can’t recommend getting a high powered blender for smoothies alone.  Honestly, in my opinion it’s worth it.  The amount of money you save from making your own smoothies and the nutrients it provides your body makes such a difference.  It works for my lifestyle too as I mentioned earlier.  I’m a busy mom of three,  I work and try to balance it all.  Which we all know doesn’t really happen- balance is a nice thing to say but hard to achieve. 

The Blendtec GO is my favorite jar for making a smoothie or quick sauce.

Anyways, I love the blender for smoothies because it provides me a quick real food option.  It fits right into my lifestyle of wanting real food but also not having all the time in the world to make it happen.  I also love using it for making so many recipes.  Batters, puddings, really the list is endless.  I have the smaller Twister jar too, for making nut butters, and sauces.  I love it.  Since it’s smaller it makes it so easy to whip up a quick sauce or nut butter.  The larger jar just doesn’t allow for it in the same way.  I also have been using the Blendtec GO jar and it has quickly become my favorite!  So easy for on the go smoothies or making a quick sauce. If you’ve been on the fence about a high powered blender, allow this to be your invitation to get one!  It’s changed my life. 

And, as always, don’t forget to check back tomorrow for Day #9 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Giveaways.

Giveaway Day #6 – Purity Coffee 1 Year Of Purity Coffee($480)

 

I have been drinking Purity Coffee since the start of 2020 and I’m not about to stop anytime soon!  As a fellow coffee lover I never knew coffee was such a complex topic.  When I found out about organic coffee I started to buy only organic.  Then I soon realized that there was so much more to the equation than just buying organic coffee.  Purity coffee is true to the name- so pure.  They take it to the next level when it comes to sourcing.  Best of all, you can win ONE YEAR’s worth of Purity Coffee!

 

Below is more detail on what Purity Coffee offers, because even if you don’t win the giveaway, you are going to want to try this coffee!

 

Purity Coffee offers coffee in several different ways.  

The Pocket Purity Coffee sachets have been a game changer!

I get the decaf blend on a regular basis since I don’t handle caffeine well.  It’s literally the best decaf coffee I’ve ever had!  The flavor is rich and not muddled down like many decaf coffees I’ve tried.  I’m obsessed!  It tastes great as hot coffee and iced.  I use the beans in my espresso machine, but I’ve also done it with my Chemex and loved the flavor of the coffee from it as well. 

My husband has done the medium roast and dark roast and is a fan of both.  He will do the Chemex typically, and sometimes uses the espresso machine to make espresso shots.  He also has tried the Pocket Purity..  These coffee sachets are everything for those on the go and traveling.  They are essentially like a tea bag but filled with coffee instead.  You put it in a cup, add hot water and then let it seep for 3-4 minutes.  My husband loves these and so does my mom!  I am excited to try these myself as they just came out with a decaf option.  Now you can enjoy all the benefits of a good cup of coffee with Purity Coffee’s sachets!

As you can see I’m pretty much obsessed with all things Purity Coffee!  This isn’t just a coffee company.  They are literally changing the coffee industry and adding health benefits to a coffee cup every morning.   Read my full review of Purity Coffee here!
