My first experience with a blog was back in 2005. A friend of mine told me that I needed to check out this celebrity gossip blog called, Pink is the New Blog. After reading a few posts, I was hooked. Not only did I enjoy the daily gossip, but I loved the casual and personal nature of his writing. Reading this blog became my morning ritual and it soon got me thinking … Is this his full-time job? How is he making money off of his blog? And how did land big time TV interviews?
Fast forward to 2007.
After the birth of my daughter, I quit my full-time job as an RN Clinical Research Coordinator and became a full-time stay at home mom. But after 9 months of play-dates, mommy and me classes, and a dwindling bank account, I felt the urge to make some money and exercise my brain. I looked online for different work at home jobs, but the majority of my time was spent weeding through scams and sifting through websites to find all of the information that I was looking for. It was at this time that I decided to create my own a monetized blog.
Fast forward to 2009.
After 15 months of doing research, creating content, and having a designer create a custom theme for me — I was finally able to launch in March of 2009. It took me 3 months to get my first advertiser and from there it has continued to grow and is now my full-time career. While I’m unable to disclose how much I make due to non-disclosure agreements with clients, I can tell you how I’m making money blogging and that yes, you can make REAL money blogging. (more…)

Did you receive a free diaper bag at the hospital with the name of a baby products company on it? Or maybe you were given an ink pen by your insurance agent with his logo on it?

Tell us about Money Crashers and your functions as head of marketing.
Money Crashers is a personal finance website. It’s goal is to educate its readers and followers on ways to better manage money, including articles on saving for retirement, investing, cutting monthly bills, and budgeting, among many other topics. I’m responsible for all general marketing responsibilities including content marketing, creating strategies to boost online traffic, and improving SEO. I’m also head of our website’s guest posting campaign.
How were you able to bring your current position home?
I connected with the CEO of Money Crashers in the past when I was at my previous position through a guest posting relationship. I decided I was looking for a role with more responsibilities, and after a few conversations, I was able to do just that. Both positions were work from home, so I really didn’t have to do anything regarding that.
Are there any tips you would recommend to people who want to do the same?
If you’re currently working a traditional career at the office of your employer, try to identify some of the tasks you might be able to complete from your home office rather than going in each day. (more…)
