Jodi Carlson has been running her blog LeaderConnectingLeaders.com part-time since 2014 and has slowly built it up to $5-6k a month in revenue.
The earnings come from a combination of mostly digital product sales, as well as advertising, and affiliate relationships.
The surprising thing – to me at least – is that she’s done this in a niche that theoretically doesn’t have any money.
Brett Lindenberg is the founder of FoodTruckEmpire.com. A part-time blog that generates $60k a year with just 15 or so hours a week time investment.
Why did Brett start a blog about the food trucking industry?
“I started the blog at a time in my life when I was looking at just a whole bunch of different business ideas,” Brett said.
“Go big or go home, that’s kinda my whole philosophy with SEO,” Matt said.
And his results speak for themselves.
It’s been more than 200 episodes since I last spoke with Matt Giovanisci. Back then, Matt was explaining how he was growing his authority site SwimUniversity.com with epic content and strong SEO.
Could a part-time blog really bring in that kind of cash? Rosemarie swears she only works 20 hours a week!
Yes, The Busy Budgeter is back for her 3rd round on The Side Hustle Show, and it’s a good one.
Since we last spoke, she started posting consistent $100k months from her blog, so of course I had to invite her back to hear what changed.
If you guessed creating her own products and driving paid traffic, you’d be the big winner.
You might know Michelle Schroeder-Gardner from her super-popular blog MakingSenseofCents.com where she gets hundreds of thousands of readers and makes 6-figures a month.
The bulk of her revenue comes from affiliate marketing, and Michelle now has a course explaining exactly how you too can build a profitable blog at MakingSenseofAffiliateMarketing.com.
If you’ve been by SideHustleNation.com lately you might have noticed the site just got a long overdue facelift.
This is the 3rd major redesign of the site and the first since January 2014. I remember that date because I worked on it over the holidays and wanted to get it done before heading off to my first New Media Expo, which was the first weekend in January that year.
In this post I’ll share my ideas and goals behind the latest theme change, what’s new with the site, and how I was able to complete the redesign process myself on a limited budget.
