Hi, my name is Pete and I blog as a second job.
A while back I started a WordPress blog about personal finance. I started writing the blog because my wife and I were taking a class called Financial Peace University, done by finance guru Dave Ramsey. As part of the class I kind of wanted to track what we were learning so that I could refer back to it later. After writing for the site for several months I started to realize that a lot of other people were reading the site besides just me – and I quickly realized that you could turn a blog into a cash making machine if you did things the right way.
Here we are almost 3 years later and my blogs are now almost equaling the income from my day job, and they have long since eclipsed the income my wife was making before she became a stay at home mom. Having a blog is an amazing way to create a side income, build a little extra financial security or even create your own ideal full time job.
What Will This Site Be About?
On this site I will be writing about a wide variety of topics surrounding the topic of blogging – and specifically focusing on ways to make money blogging. It took me a long time to figure out a lot of this stuff, and now I want to start sharing it with others so that they can shorten their own learning curve. I’ll be looking at things like how to have good SEO on your site, blogging tools that can help you to optimize your site, best practices for using Google Adsense, monetization strategies and more.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey, and comment when you have questions – or always feel free to contact me via the contact form linked above.
Also, if you want to jump right in, I do have an ebook available right now that goes in depth on how I created my money making blog, and how you can duplicate my success. The ebook has the same name as the blog, “Blueprint For How To Make Money With A Blog“. Just click on the banner in the right sidebar to get more details or purchase it now!
