starting a blogStarting a blog to make money is achievable for anybody that’s willing to try.

However, our negative thinking can keep us from greatness if will allow it.

Building a blog can be a REALITY if you have the right mindset and a positive attitude.


Here are 4 tips to help you succeed with your blog. 

1) Figure Out What You Really Want

When I first started my blog, I felt exited and motivated but I ALSO felt doubtful.

One side of my brain was saying ‘you can do this’ but the other side was saying ‘no you can’t, you’re gunna fail.’

It’s hard making a decision to start something new but you really have to dig deep and figure out what you REALLY want.

You have to figure out what makes you happy.  Being happy in life is so important.  How many people do we know that are just miserable and stressed in life?  That’s not the way life is suppose to be.  We can be successful and happy.

If you are miserable and stressed, it’s time you CHANGE your life.

I truly believe starting a blog to make EXTRA money can be a life changer for anyone that wants it.  I’m doing it and you can too.

The hardest part about changing anything in life is making the decision to change.  If you want to start a blog but are afraid, I’m here to tell you ‘you can do it.’

Here are 4 great tips to help you get starting in your own blog.

2) Believe in Yourself 

This is most important when starting a blog.

I know for a fact that YOU can succeed at building a successful blog if you BELIEVE in yourself.

In order to be happy and succeed, you have to have a positive outlook on life.  You have to think happy thoughts and stay positive as much as possible.  If you change your thinking, you will change your life.

Same thing applies to starting a blog.

I know you can do it, you just don’t BELIEVE you can do it.

It’s not hard.

Especially if you pick something your are truly passionate.

Follow the 4 steps to success and you WILL succeed.

Your passion and your positive attitude will NOT ALLOW you to fail.

It’s amazing how we let our self doubt and fears take priority in our decision making.

Starting a blog is not a risky business.  I actually started building my website for free.

Obviously there’s work involved but it can be fun and enjoyable.  Plus make money in the process is always nice.

So get rid of those negative thoughts and don’t be afraid to fail.  You won’t fail, you WILL succeed!

3) Just Get Started

It’s always hard starting something new.  It’s the UNKNOWN that freaks us out but if you wait for the perfect time, it’ll never come.

When I think back,  to 1997 when I DECIDED to start my cleaning business, I realize that was the BIG financial game changer for me.

I’m now realizing the day I started this blog was another ENORMOUS financial game changer for me.

I’m so glad I CONVINCED myself to get STARTED.

Think about all the financially successful people like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk.  If they didn’t make up their minds and GET STARTED, who knows where they’d be today.

It might seem ‘too hard to do’ but just get started.  It’ll work out!

4) Don’t Give Up

starting a blogThis is my last important tip when it comes to starting a blog.  You mustn’t quit when things get tough.

Trust me, it’s going to happen.  You’re going to struggle a little with your blog.  You’re not going to see results fast enough and you will want to quit!

Look at all successful people, did they become successful over night? 

Of course not.  Believe me, they struggled.  They made mistakes but they kept on going.  After they got knocked down, they ALWAYS got back up.

It’s the ‘never giving up’ attitude that’s made them a success story.

Statistics show that MOST small businesses fail within 5 years.  I don’t believe this number has to be so high.

I think the word ‘FAILURE’ is synonymous with ‘QUITING.’

Think about it, you only fail on the day you quit!   

When it comes to making money with a blog, you have to think long term.  It takes time and effort to create content for your readers in the form of webpages.

If you realize this, you won’t fail.  You just have to keep producing content and eventually you will reap the financial reward.

Your blog will generate free unlimited traffic from your content creation.  Successful boggers that make money understand this principle.

Think about all of the successful bloggers that have been around for many years. 

They weren’t always successful, especially when they were first starting out. They ALL started from zero.  Today they are successful ONLY  because they kept on plugging along.

They kept pumping out quality content for their readers.  Content that continues to bring them free search engine traffic every day.

They stick with the plan day after day and keep moving forward.  That’s all they do.   It’s what I do and it’s what YOU can do too.

Remember, it’s going to take time to grow your blog but there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

There is no reason why you can’t be the next blogger success story.

In Conclusion

Starting a blog can seem a bit scary at first but it’s all mental.  You just have to figure out what you really want, believe in yourself, get started and not quit.

A blog is a great way to earn extra income online from home.  In my opinion, it’s the ultimate home business.  Of course you have to work a little but EVERYTHING requires work.

It’s all attitude.  If you want to think of it as a chore then maybe it’s not for you.  If on the other hand, you see the potential in blogging and you’re excited to do it, then by all means just get started.

Having a blog is something anyone can do in their spare time.  It can be about your favorite subject and you can work on it at your own pace.  There’s no deadlines, no boss and no major start up costs.

You can even start for free.

A blog has the potential to grow over time and build into something great.  

If what I’m saying, strikes a chord in you, then I strongly encourage you to start building your own blog today.
