I know I've been there, but luckily you can learn from me and avoid years of failed strategies and frustration.
I started blogging back in 2011 and much like you, I had no idea where to start. No one in my social circle was blogging and all I had to compare my work to were the big named bloggers at the time. No one was selling courses and learning how to build an audience wasn't easy because the information wasn't made readily available. After seeing just how profitable a properly constructed website could be I set out to learn everything I possibly could about turning my passion project into profit.
I created The Essential Guide To Blogging because everyone deserves to make a living doing what they love. As my following grew I was able to cut down my hours at my 9-5, little by little. The more I made online the less time I had to work an unfulfilling job that didn't serve me.
The Essential Guide to Blogging is a course that will change the way you look at blogging forever. Blogging has come a long way from being a hobby, it's one of the most lucrative work from home job out there.
