I love running an online business, with all the opportunity and freedom it brings. I would like to see more bloggers follow that path, but the same few mistakes keep holding them back.
If you’re like most bloggers I know, you would love to make a living by creating genuinely helpful content on your blog.
You know it’s possible (you’ve read the success stories), but you’re not really sure how to connect the dots from here to there.
On a daily basis, your thought process might go something like this:
Should I create a new logo? Most full-time bloggers have those. Then again, maybe I need to focus on social media promotion, because I really need more traffic on my site. I know, I’ll update my Twitter bio! But wait… I should finish that half-written ebook so I have something to sell on my blog.
Not knowing where to start is an overwhelming―and frustrating―experience
I know, because I used to feel the same way.
I Started Blogging in 2013
From the very beginning, I wanted to figure out how to make a full-time income from my blog.
I was serious about building an online business, but had no idea where to begin.
It took me a year and a half to generate any kind of revenue, and I’d been blogging for three years before I had enough money coming in to quit my day job and become a blogger full-time.
That was an incredible day! But getting there was a long, uphill battle.
Along the way, I learned a lot about online business―mostly because I made a lot of mistakes.
Only recently did I learn that the mistakes I made weren’t unique to me at all―nearly every blogger goes through the same series of lessons from failure before they start making money from their blog.
You may be making these blogging mistakes right now.
Avoid the Mistakes Most Bloggers Are Making
The easiest way to avoid the mistakes myself and other bloggers have already made is simple―learn from our experience before learning the hard way yourself.
You may have a long journey ahead of you―but these lessons act like a shortcut, perhaps even cutting your journey in half!
Why would you waste your time learning lessons the hard way that a few paragraphs of text can warn you about?
In my first two years of marriage, I built an online business from this blog while working full-time at Chick-fil-A.
If I can build an online business from my blog, you can do the same thing.
This Free Guide Will Help Get You Started
I wrote a short, actionable guide to teach you about the three most common mistakes I still see bloggers making every day.
At just 7 pages, this guide is a quick read―and that’s entirely on purpose.
If I had room for mistake #4, I’d have put “More time spent researching than creating anything new.”

You’ll be better prepared for your online business than I was when I first started out.
