I posted an article a while back that I think fits this community well as you've been expressing interest in knowing more about my full-time blogging journey.
I know many of my readers here are writers themselves, and as such, I felt that sharing how the life of a full-time blogger is can be of assistance to others and give you an idea of what some of you are trying to become. I also have a few tips I can give you to get there, and I guarantee it’s hard work but it’s worth it.
First of all, there’s one thing I think you should understand. We bloggers are creative people, and as such dislike routines and love coffee… which is fine until you realize you must make blogging a routine.
Granted, there are days in which you don’t want to write, and when you reach critical mass you can skip a few days — but up until that point, you must simply grind using all the willpower you can get.
I remember when I was starting my blogging career, it sure as hell wasn’t easy. I was just 21, still living with my parents, and they were constantly nagging me to have a real job. I did get “traditional” jobs, but it was a disaster.
My father would nag me every day, stating empirical knowledge like:
“ — You’ll never earn money sitting at home!”
“ — You think your life will fall on your lap?”
You know, the worried “parent talk” you give your kids when they just won’t move out.
I was writing every single day and spending all of my days trying to learn several skills like:
Searching for Success Stories (you have to keep on motivated).
…among other things.
What did I get for it?
Less than $1 per month, some really good months I’d get about $5.
It was on a sunny day that I was working in my parents’ Art Shop to help them out. I was checking the statistics and then I saw it.
I broke the $100 barrier for that month… I earned over one hundred dollars in a month.
Can you believe how I felt after all that time?
I jumped around in the shop and I told my parents full of pride.
My father said: “That isn’t enough to pay a third of the rent”.
I anchored myself in reality again, but now I had something I never had before — the knowledge that IT WAS POSSIBLE!
It was just a couple of months after this had happened that I saw I broke the $500 barrier. Why? Because all of those days of writing and grinding gave me a huge stack of content… and I only needed to get found out for all that content to be accessed.
My parents didn’t believe me as I told them, but I took my father to the bank and showed him the proof. The money wasn’t virtual, it was real, the slip of paper the ATM gave us confirmed it for him. He started supporting me.
I had a fairly accessed blog now, but a sound business strategy is to only get in businesses you can scale. I had the time to scale it, as I only needed to write an article per day for the blog, so how did I scale it.
I got other blogs started, and I now have a couple of different properties. Even though I claim to be a full-time blogger, I am more than that. I started out there, but I eventually expanded into other content.
I have a couple of blogs, then I expanded into YouTube where I have a couple of channels of those informational videos that are read by the text-to-speech voices (low budget, I know, but that will change in time as I scale), plus I have some Android Apps I’m monetizing with Admob.
^This is me not regretting leaving the blogs of others, don't know if I match what you pictured Max would look like :P
What’s the core of this article? What do I find to be the most important knowledge piece to impart upon you? It’s this:
It gets easier with each passing day.
You start out having to put tons of effort and hours for little to no reward, but each and every article you publish compounds with the rest of your content and with the article you’re going to post tomorrow.
With a trickle of views to each one, they multiply the eyeballs on your pieces and in whatever you monetize.
The more you work today, the less you have to work tomorrow. I now spend my life thinking about ways to diversify my income streams, to get money flowing from other places in order to avoid sticking every egg in the same basket. That’s why I joined Read Cash in part too, I’m hoping to grow here and make this another income stream to diversify my Internet stake.
I hope this article helped you in your writing/blogging journey. It IS POSSIBLE, but you have to be disciplined and pass through the initial roadblock, which can be quite long. It gets easier as you go, post by post.
