Learn to Blog For Money!

Learn To Blog For MoneyLearn to Blog For Money!

Do you have a blog?  Why did you start that blog?  I am fairly active in  several blogging groups and there is such a diversity of people of various ages, backgrounds and motivations who call themselves bloggers.  Precious few make any money blogging.  Most of those would say that they don’t do it for the money.  Yet, with a few tweaks here and there they could actually learn to blog for money.

Is there anything wrong with just writing for the pleasure?  No, of course not!  In fact if you start a blog and it gives you no pleasure, then you will likely soon abandon it.  I have abandoned a few myself! I believe that one of the secrets in learning to blog for money is choosing your niche well.

I know a person who created a website with over 350 blog posts and never made a cent. Nobody writes 350 articles unless they are truly motivated and honestly love what they are writing about.  Still, we all have to make an income and as long as you are not compromising your ideals in any way then there is nothing wrong with learning to blog for money!

On the other extreme are the people whose blog is one commercial after another.  They receive free goods and write about them.  That’s one way to get paid but then you have to keep on doing it over and over again.

Maybe I’m a little old fashioned but I prefer the cold hard cash!  And I’m not talking about someone paying me to write an article, again that is trading my time for dollars.  I’m talking about learning to blog for money in a way that pays you over and over again for years.

Almost three years ago an ad came across my newsfeed on Facebook.  That ad showed a woman who lived in a make money blogging at homemobile home and she had just upgraded to a cute little bungalow.  I was intrigued by it because I was being bombarded with ads that showed people who earned money online and were apparently buying mansions and driving big black fancy cars. I had even fallen for some of those ads and paid for expensive courses and I still didn’t make a cent!

Robin’s Pajama Affiliates course was the polar opposite of these.  There were no promises of easy money and lavish incomes.  She shared what she was earning and said she would show how she did it.  It was so opposite of what I had already been exposed to that I thought it had to be real!  I am so glad that I took that chance!  Not only was Robin Cockrell very real, I was soon earning actual dollars.  And there were no monthly fees and upsells and now you need this $1000 item or that $500 tool.  Robin keeps all her courses at an affordable level and I have even heard that she lets people who are struggling buy on layaway!  She holds crazy sales and sometimes her courses are cheaper than a Starbucks drink and pastry order!

I have been in Robins small Facebook group for almost 3 years now.  In that time I have made tens of thousands of dollars as a direct result of things she has taught me.  Just yesterday I went and paid cash for a new $700 clothes dryer using my ‘Amazon money’.  Three years ago that would have not been possible!

If you are not sure about taking this plunge even though the course prices are so low, then why not come into the Facebook group and just check us out for awhile?  The group is free and even just being there you will probably learn something you didn’t know. It would be nice if you let them know I sent you but if not, that’s ok too!

I can’t finish this without mentioning Robin’s new partner, Lesley Stevens.  She is the icing to Robin’s cake.  I have always called Lesley the Amazon Queen! She makes more Amazon commissions in November and December than most people make in a regular job all year. Lesley has done the content for the Amazon Masterclass and some of the Blogging modules and I learn something new every time I look at it!

This link will take you to Robin’s site where you can get an idea of the courses that are available.  Looking is free, the Facebook group is free.  And the courses are really affordable. And there is no pressure.

Who knows, maybe you will look back in three years and be writing a thank you article just like this one!

Thanks Robin and Lesley, I’ll always be grateful!

    You get me so well with these other blogging groups too and I don’t want to knock anything they do for free stuff but gosh, cash is so much better. And I don’t compromise who I am because I’m blogging about something I like blogging about. I have almost 300 blog posts myself and you don’t stick with it unless you like and you might as well make some money while you are there doing it.

    It just seems so simple to me.

    I see people blogging for free tampons and pringles and its killing me!! They are getting maybe a free gift card? I mean trading time for gift cards and free products is not my idea of a good time. I don’t mean to knock anyone either, these are hard times, I get it, free product and gift cards sounds awesome – but cash is better and will pay the bills.

    So well said Anita.

      Thank you Lesley! I so appreciate how you share exactly what to do. I mean it’s up to us as individuals to follow through and do it but you so freely give the information. Anybody with desire can do this.

  2. moonvine says:

    Oh I totally agree with you! I just got started in Pajama Affiliates this past summer and it has been such a blessing to me — in friendships in the group — and in lessons learned about my on line business. I keep learning new things! What a joy!

    • Anita says:

      Joan you are such an asset to the group! I just love how you are in there every day keeping things so positive and uplifting! Thank you!

  3. vinma says:

    I almost cried reading this post Anita. There is brutal honesty here which is hard to find these days. I am also a member of Robin and Lesley’s group. I adore both of them and the group is certainly a keeper! I do make most of my money from sponsored content but I am on the road to learning this affiliate business with the courses offered. It is affordable to purchase and it will be on of the best decisions you will ever make!

    • anitabreeze says:

      Oh Vinma, so glad you are in the group too! You are capable of great things and I look forward to see what you do! And remember, it’s multiple streams of income so nothing wrong with sponsored content as long as you diversify! Thanks for commenting!

  4. Lois Alter Mark says:

    Okay, I have to check this out. I’ve always been intimidated by the whole affiliate thing.

  5. Helene Bludman says:

    I’m intrigued. I would love to learn more about this.

  6. Rebecca Bryant says:

    Ok i’m intrigued. I have been blogging for 6 years and haven’t made more then about 100.00 in a year. Plus every program out there requires more money then I make so I would be interested in learning to earn a little cash.

  7. Mama to 5 Blessings says:

    Sounds like a great way to earn extra money. I just requested to join the group.

  8. Saving Common Cents says:

    I started writing for fun and it has morphed into a nice (little) income. I do wish my state would let go of all their tax regulations so I could do more with affiliates.

  9. Lorane Rhoden says:

    How much is the actual course? I read the post but I did not see a price. I will definitely check this out. Extra money is always good money

    • Anita says:

      It is several courses and sometimes when they are on sale, a course can be as low as $20 bucks! Join the facebook group and you will see announcements for when they are on sale. She also has a gifting program where a person can buy one half price and gift to another person. I have done this before and it’s very gratifying to me to see that person move along in their progress and actually start making money!

  10. Liz Mays says:

    Her course must have been so helpful! I’m glad you were able to increase your income so much! It’s awesome when you can start making a steady living online!

    • Anita says:

      Yes, I have taken all of them that are currently available. Repeat business is a good sign that you are doing something right!

  11. TheNewClassy says:

    I have heard that courses like these can be very helpful. Blogging for money can be very fulfilling.

  12. Tonya Blackstone-Coleman says:

    Thanks for the info! I’ve been looking for some help with affiliate marketing on my blog!

  13. Carol Bryant says:

    YAY for blogging for money – that is what I have been learning at BlogPaws. Great post.

  14. Athena Nagel says:

    I am definitely going to share this with my daughter. she wants to learn how to blog and needs more than what I can offer her in terms of a course.

  15. Laura Funk says:

    I wish that we could work with Amazon in Colorado…they do not allow affiliate relationships here 🙁

  16. Great tips! Thank you for sharing! We can all use a little more coins!
