The ULTIMATE Affiliate Marketing Guide for Bloggers: Make Money While You Sleep!

The ULTIMATE Affiliate Marketing Guide for Bloggers: Make Money While You Sleep!

  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 […]

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 gets 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 […]


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

  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 […]
