Blogging is Dying, So Why Do I Keep at It?

Blogging

 

My business partner April Bowles asked me the other day: Do you think blogging is becoming obsolete? 

 

Here’s what I had to say (my answer might miss you off a lil’):

 

 

I obviously have a very strong opinion about this topic. Surprise, surprise. And here’s the thing about opinions: When I have a firm position on anything, I get attacked. And that’s fine, cuz I’m not confident in my stance unless I have extensive data + case studies + personal experience to back it up.

 

This was a pretty short n’ sweet video, but if you want to know my reasoning behind this conversation, you might want to check out this article I wrote a little bit ago – Is Blogging Dying? This Is What I Think! It’s one of my favorite pieces.

 

As always, thanks for visiting. Did you know that when you leave a comment an actual person (that would be me) does a happy dance? It’s true.

How To Make An Extra $1,000 This Month

How-to-make-an-extra-1K-this-month

 

Are you making a living doing what you love? Or are you funding a hobby?

 

Over the last weeks hundreds of you have raised your hands + spilled open + shared your BIG dreams + confessed your fears with me. It has been an absolute honor to be the keeper of your secrets (including your money fantasies) + the light in the end of your tunnel. 

 

I’ve woken up so many mornings thinking of you. I’ve sent you happy thoughts in countless prayers. I have talked about you with hubby. I’ve raved about you during my dad’s famous Pasta Nights.  

 

You’re the reason I get out of my comfy pajamas + put on waterproof mascara to film episodes week after week. You’re the reason I get over my fear of “what will people think?” + hit publish anyways.

 

I feel humbled to be part of your journey to the top of your metaphorical Mount Everest. You’ve inspired me endlessly to create things, small things, but MIGHTY things that can make a BIG difference. You bring out the best in me, and for that I will always be grateful.

 

Today’s episode was inspired by YOU, and the countless women who knock my door every day because they struggle to turn her multiple passions into a profit. They are seeking the “one thing” that will make all the difference… the “one thing” that will give them their big break… the “one thing” that will make things easier.

 

My advice? Stop putting so much pressure on ONE thing. Start test driving different eggs + placing them in other baskets. See what you like. See what your people like.
 

Here are 6 totally doable ways to diversify your revenue streams + maximize your earning potential + make an extra 1 thousand dollars (said like Dr. Evil) this month. Ca-shing!!!

 

 

Let’s recap all that we covered in today’s episode:

  • Turn your invisible product that’s only exist in your computer into a physical product.
  • Coach the next generation of superstars.
  • Sell subscriptions to a service.
  • Generate referral commissions with intention, also called affiliate marketing.
  • License your goods to go big without spending big.
  • Stop doing that project you suck at. 

 

There you have it, a handful of revenue streams to add to your money making repertoire. Try them. All. One. A few. And let me know how it goes.

 

Thanks for watching. Your support means so much to me, you don’t even know.
