What does it take to turn your hobby blog into a fully fledged business? You’re about to find out……


Making money from blogging

  • You’ve heard it a million times but yep it’s so important – CONTENT. How can your blog help people do something faster, cheaper or better?
  • Know what brands you want to work with & pitch appropriately
  • Treat your blog as a business from the start


Take advantage of those early months of blogging and try new things – see what works for you – what do you enjoy blogging about & what is easy. THEN blogging will never feel like a chore



I asked the ‘Who’s the Mummy’ blogger how can we really succeed in the world of blogging – how on earth did that mummy blogger down the road become so successful? Here’s Sally top observations from the thousands of bloggers she knows


  • They know who they are & what their blog is really about


  • The most successful bloggers HUSTLE hard – they treat their blog as a business from the beginning


  • Top bloggers have a consistent tone across all social media, the same style of images & are posting consistently


  • They guest post, they get themselves in the media, they get offline and tell people about their blog – they do everything they can do get people to read their blog

  • The little things – put your blog url in your email signature, get active on social media


  • Successful bloggers are themselves & invest in their blog


  • They realise that there is NO SECRET to being a top blogger! You need to work hard


  • Successful bloggers look at their analytic’s for social media & their blog & then TAKE ACTION on what their analytical data says


  • They DON’T WASTE TIME looking at what other bloggers are doing & obsess over it – they look at other blogs for inspiration but then work hard on their own blog


The difference between a hobby blogger and a pro blogger is that they are professional – they meet all deadlines, they are consistinet, they photos & writing are high quality and they hustle hard

Really want to turn your blog into a business? Then treat it like a BUSINESS
