Quarter 1 in Review: How I Made $15,000 From My Blog, New Discoveries, & More

  I love reading other bloggers’ income reports, although I’ve never shared one of my own before. So I thought, “Why not kick things up a notch?” In this post, not only will I share how much money I made from my blog in Quarter 1, but I’ll also share…   • Highlights and “wins” from the past 3 months • Lowlights and lessons learned • My favorite tools and discoveries so far this year • The blog posts I shared on Blog Beautifully in Quarter 1 • What’s ahead for Quarter 2   Needless to say, this post is going to be massive – so grab yourself a fresh bevvy (spiced rum and coke for me, please) and let’s get to it.   *This post may contain affiliate links for products I love.

16 Eye-Opening Blog & Biz Lessons from 2016

16 Eye-Opening Blog & Biz Lessons from 2016

  …2016, you were one hell of a year.   When I compare my life today to my life one year ago, the difference is unreal. Like, cray cray.   Last December I was working a desk job I hated. I was living in a city that wasn’t the right fit for me and that was too far away from my family. And I was basically a sad ball-of-stress 24/7.   Take all of those things and flip them 180, and that’s what my life is like today. I work from home and have a career I absolutely love. I live in a beautiful home that’s less than a half hour drive from my parents’ house. Above all else, I’m happy. So SO happy!   2016 was an amazing year […]


Make Money with Pinterest Affiliate Links (Without Losing Your Street Cred!)

Make Money with Pinterest Affiliate Links (Without Losing Your Street Cred!)

In spring of 2016, Pinterest made a shocking announcement: They were allowing DIRECT affiliate links on pins again. WAHOO!   That’s right, you can now link a pin directly to a product or website you’re an affiliate for. This cuts out the “middle man” step of sending someone to read the product review on your blog first, and then hoping they’ll click on your affiliate link and make a purchase.   This is BIG news. Although affiliate links were allowed on Pinterest in the past, they were banned for over a year because the platform was becoming too spammy. But apparently those uber-smart people at Pinterest headquarters have spiffed things up a bit, and we can now use our beloved affiliate links again. Hooray!   Now, for those people thinking […]


What It’s Really Like to Blog Full-Time & My Daily Routine

What It’s Really Like to Blog Full-Time & My Daily Routine

  Since quitting my job in March of 2016 and launching Blog Beautifully in April, my life has done a complete 180. I went from working an 8-5 job that I had zero passion for, to being my own boss, setting my own schedule, and doing something I absolutely love every single day. Someone pinch me!   I wake up in the morning so excited to get to work, and a lot of the time I have trouble falling asleep at night because there are so many ideas for blog posts and projects swirling around in my head. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.   If it’s your dream to blog full-time, my best advice is to just go for it. Take a leap of faith like I […]
