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. It’s Gmail, letting you know that you just earned $60 from an affiliate link on your website. Sweet.   Bartender, another round please!   This is the beauty of affiliate marketing, and the reason I love it so much. If done correctly, you could be receiving emails like that every single day. $60 here, $25 there, another $10 – day in and day out. With affiliate marketing, you can make money on autopilot while you’re out living your life.   Sound good? I thought it might! If you’re like, “Yes please, teach me the ways!” you’ll definitely want to stick around. In today’s post, I’m breaking down […]

17 Top Tools for Making Money Blogging (That Won’t Give You a Tech Headache!)

  I’m all about keeping things simple when it comes to my blog and business.   In other words, why take 10 steps when 3 will do? Why use a super-confusing software when a simple one will get the job done?   Since starting Blog Beautifully, I’ve tested out dozens of different tools, programs, and platforms for bloggers and online business owners. Some I instantly fell in love with, and some – not so much.   In this post, I’m talking about the tools that “stuck”; the ones that are now so ingrained in the day-to-day management of my blog and business, that things would undoubtedly fall apart without them.   These 17 tools made the cut because:   a) They’re easy to use once you master the learning curve b) They […]


These 11 Mistakes are Stopping You From Making Money as a Blogger

These 11 Mistakes are Stopping You From Making Money as a Blogger

  According to a poll of Lifehacker readers, over 50% of bloggers are earning less than $100/month from their blogs.   In the same poll, only 13% of respondents said that they made over $1,000/month. Keep in mind that these stats are likely skewed, because the reality is that most bloggers quit before they earn a single penny.   Blogging is tough – we all know that. But blogging for a profit is even tougher.   Despite these stats, I’ve made it my mission to help as many women as possible achieve financial freedom through their blogs. I’ve done it – and my life is 10x better for it! – and my biggest goal is helping you do the same.   Over the past year, I’ve helped countless women set […]
