I teach people how to start a blog and turn it into a minimalist online business that makes money. No technical experience required.
What do you mean by “minimalist” online business?
I make a full-time income working part-time hours. I have no interest in working 40+ hours a week running an online business empire. I want freedom. If it’s a business empire you’re after, I’m not your person, but if you want to know how to run things lean, stick around. I teach what I do.
How exactly does a blog-turned-online business work?
Here are the basic steps:
- Start a blog and write really great articles (blog posts) about a topic you enjoy.
- Others interested in your topic will find your blog. You’ll get to know each other.
- Think of more in-depth help you can provide, like providing a service, teaching a course or writing a book. Some of your people will gladly pay for that help.
I want to be very clear. Making money blogging is not simple, quick or guaranteed. But if you have drive, discipline and time, you can do it, like so many of us have.
Do you really mean I don’t need to be technical?
Yes. Since 2010, thousands of people have followed my instructions on this site, from teenagers to 77 year olds (true story, her name is Louise). I’m confident you can too.
How is this site different from the thousands like it?
I specialize in minimal and simple. No ads, sponsored posts, daily emails, constant promotions, glorification of hustle or other noise.
Are you qualified to teach this?
Yes, but why should you believe me, right? I can only describe my personal experience. I started my first blog in 2004 and many others since; I built and ran an online community (old school style, pre-Facebook); provided client services including web design, blog coaching, consulting and virtual assistance; “retired” my husband (then unretired him because we didn’t like it).
Where do I go from here?
If you’re new, it’s good to start with the basics. On the next page, I talk about costs to start, free blogs, steps to get your blog up and running and more.
