My Top 3 Automation Tools for Bloggers That Will Save You HOURS Every Single Week

My Top 3 Automation Tools for Bloggers That Will Save You HOURS Every Single Week

  I thought about titling this post, “How I Work 15-20 Hours/Week While Travelling Full-Time”, but I decided that it sounded a little too douchey (you’re welcome).   The reality is that it doesn’t matter if you’re travelling full-time, part-time, or not at all: We’re all on some sort of time crunch. Whether you’re a digital nomad like me, blogging on the “side” of your day job, or just a living-breathing person in today’s day-and-age – you’re BUSY.   One of my biggest suggestions for growing a successful blog while a time crunch is to automate, automate, automate. You should be automating as many things in your blog and biz as possible, so that when you do have time to work on your blog, you can focus on the things […]

7 Myths About Making Money as a Blogger That You Need to Stop Believing Right Now

7 Myths About Making Money as a Blogger That You Need to Stop Believing Right Now

  Have you ever read something online and thought to yourself, “But that’s simply NOT true…”?   I feel like that a lot of the time, especially when it comes to my two zones of genius: blogging and Pinterest. I’m not saying I know everything about those topics, but what I am saying is that it’s important to filter and analyze the sources you glean information from. Because sometimes, that shizz just ain’t right!   As I’m sure you know, when you’re constantly hearing so many different tips, strategies, and opinions (some of which are completely opposite of each other), it becomes impossible to know who to believe and how to separate “fact” from “fiction”.   This is why you should take everything you read online with a grain of […]


My Story: From Broke & Unemployed to Full-Time Blogger & Digital Nomad (in Under 2 Years!)

My Story: From Broke & Unemployed to Full-Time Blogger & Digital Nomad (in Under 2 Years!)

  There was a point in my life when I was painfully unemployed, reeling from a heartbreak, and hella, hella broke.   Every day seemed worse than the last, and I felt like I was running out of options. I remember thinking, “Is this it for me? Is this the ‘big plan’ for my life? To wind up alone, bitter, and working at a minimum wage job for the rest of eternity?”   Thankfully, the Universe had other plans for me.   Today, I’m proud to say that I’m my own boss.   I work from home as a “full-time” blogger, and I earn great money that more than pays the bills every month. In a few short weeks, I’m leaving my hometown behind and spending a year travelling around […]

The ULTIMATE Affiliate Marketing Guide for Bloggers

Picture this.   It’s Saturday night and you’re out having drinks with some friends at a local pub. “Ding!” Your phone goes off.

Sweet.   Bartender, another round please!   This is the beauty of affiliate marketing, and the reason I love it so much.
