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. […]

3 Game-Changing Activities to Supercharge Your Blog & Business

3 Game-Changing Activities to Supercharge Your Blog & Business

  As I’m sitting down to write this post, it’s been almost one year since I launched Blog Beautifully – my little baby – out into the world.   And what a year it’s been!   As anyone who’s started an online business will tell you, the first year certainly hasn’t been easy. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t also been fun, rewarding, and exciting all at the same time.   Looking at the past year in review, there were three things that stood out to me as being HUGELY successful and beneficial for my blog and business. Without these three things, I can honestly say I wouldn’t be anywhere near the wonderful and amazing space I’m in right now. […]


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 […]


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

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

  In the spring of 2016, Pinterest made a big announcement: They were allowing DIRECT affiliate links on pins again.   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 […]


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 […]
