You’ve joined all the other mom bloggers and now have a blog. Congrats! Your blog can help you make money so that you and your husband can stay home for good. Both my husband and I work from home as bloggers! It’s amazing mamas and I want to help you too! One of the things I hear from a lot of my subscribers is that they started a blog but it’s in a competitive or over-crowded blog niche. They lose confidence in blogging all together and have no idea how to stand out. What happens when the niche you decide to pick – lifestyle mom niche, make money niche, parenting niche, food niche etc.. – is over crowded and over saturated with the same topics? Can your blog still stand out and make money? Yes! It can. Blogging In An Over Crowded Blog Niche The idea of blogging in a crowded niche isn’t anything new. Many new blogs start in saturated niches. Why? Well there are blog niches that make money. Those are very popular to people that want to make money…blogging! The one thing to think about blogging in a popular niche is try not to follow what other bloggers are doing in the same niche as you. Instead, carve your own path by doing this one thing: filling the empty space Fill the Empty Space You started your blog with the intention of making money later, so finding the right path to get your blog noticed is important. But, I’m not saying don’t listen to other bloggers! The crux of your blogging journey is learning from others who have done it before you. You learn the strategies and tactics for success, but it’s ultimately up to you to come up with your blog plan and ideas for content and products. And many bloggers just end up copying other bloggers. But, this won’t help you stand out. Instead of focussing on following what other bloggers are doing, you fill the empty space by creating a new path, new ideas and new ways of presenting similar information. For a new blogger…

2018 Blog Income Report Roundup

  How much money can bloggers make? When I started my blog, I had no idea you could make a part or full-time income blogging. After a few months, I started reading income reports and became pretty inspired. I love reading income reports because they demonstrate how real people can make money by monetizing a blog and/or using it as a platform to launch a business. After reading a good blog income report, I often feel motivated to keep working hard on my blog and focus on specific areas of my strategy. Not all blog income reports are helpful, however. The ones I like are specific and show readers exactly how the blogger is making money. I like income reports that reveal certain strategies to try and assess what has and hasn’t been working. Ultimately, readers also like to see a summary of expenses as well. If you’re trying to monetize your blog, it’s important to have realistic expectations. Most serious bloggers are willing to invest in their site and will have expenses to cover for different services and programs. Below are some of the blogs with the best income reports of 2018. Believe in a Budget Kristin started her blog Believe in a Budget back in 2015. Shortly after, she started experiencing with Pinterest marketing and used Pinterest to boost her page views to over 6 figures. After sharing a case study detailing her results, she started picking up Pinterest virtual assistant clients and further monetizing her blog. Kristin teamed up with another blogger Gina Horkey to create a 6-figure-earning course called Become a Pinterest VA Today. Her blog income reports are reports date back to April 2015 when she earned $61.83. Her highest income month to date was April 2018 where she earned $109,878.70. That’s a HUGE income jump to make in just 3 years. What I like about her income reports is how she explains all the tools and resources she uses and breaks her income sources down so it’s very understandable. Check out the latest income report on Believe in a Budget here. Millennial Money Man Bobby…
