Since we’ve heard from so many of you who are enjoying the peek behind the scenes of the blogging business in this week’s podcast episode (so glad!) we thought we’d point you guys to another resource on that subject: our 3-part series on how to start a blog, grow your audience, and earn money.
It’s something we actually wrote a few months ago, mostly to have a single spot to send anyone who asked about it (it’s one of the most frequent questions we get asked, even to this day). But since we never published it to everyone’s feeds as an actual blog post, it’s admittedly not the easiest thing to find, and we realized most of you probably haven’t even seen it. So for anyone who wants to dive in, just click this link or the image below.
And if you still haven’t caught this week’s podcast episode (#8), we had a blast talking to Emily Henderson, Justina Blakeney, and Nicole Balch about sponsored posts. Paid content is a big part of the blogging world these days, both for blog writers and blog readers. So we had a candid chat with these three professional design bloggers, and they cleared up some misconceptions by peeling back the curtain on topics like negative feedback, transparency, and yes, even how much money there is to be made. We’re so grateful to Emily, Justina, and Nicole for their honesty and we learned A LOT.
Psst – For any podcast newbies, there’s a detailed tutorial for getting started here. It just takes a few clicks and it’s free!
