First of all, I know that not everyone is interested in blogging. But blogging is my actual job now (I’ll never ever get tired of saying that!) and I’ve gotten so many questions about how I made it happen, that I thought it would be appropriate to share about how to become a fulltime blogger. I recognize that this journey is different for everyone, but if you’ve ever been curious, this post is worth a read.
Sometimes life can feel a little monotonous. We drive the same commute wearing one of the same 5 shirts over and over. We sit in the same cubical, make the same jokes about Mondays, sit in the same meetings and eat the same frozen meal for lunch. Our drive home is the same and when we get home we change into our favorite sweats, sit on the same couch and eat the same takeout while we watch Netflix.
Then we go to bed and do it all over again.
And if you’re anything like me—it feels like your soul is dying.
I remember graduating from college and starting my first real job. Six months in, I was exhausted. I woke up one morning and thought, “is this really it? THIS is what I’ve worked toward the last 18 years?”
I stuck it out in the corporate world for 10 years, because that’s what I was “supposed” to do. Meanwhile, I had a secret dream. I dreamed of a life where I could work really hard doing something I loved for 3 days a week, then take off 4 and go on a road trip. I dreamed of doing work I truly loved and felt passionate about. I dreamed of living a life made of adventure and breaking out of my decade-long rut.
So I started a blog, back in 2012. My intention with it was always to turn it into a full-time gig.
(if you’re wondering how to start a blog, it’s easy! Here’s how to do it in a few easy steps!)
And I LOVED it. I got to use my creative muscles and my writing abilities and take pictures.
But where I had plenty of creative ability, I had very little business savvy. So I treaded water with my blog for three years on nights and weekends while working my corporate job. And finally, I decided I was sick of it.
I was tired of spend 30 hours a week blogging and getting nothing in return. I was ready to throw the towel in and resign myself to cubical life.
Then I saw a blogger I really respect post about Elite Blog Academy. I was a little skeptical, but I decided to go for it. If the class worked and I saw good progress with my blog, I’d keep blogging.
Otherwise I was ready to quit blogging forever.
As you can probably guess, the class changed my life. Within 6 months, my page views tripled, and I started making a very decent living off of it.
A year later? In December of 2016, I was able to quit my corporate job and take on my dream job of a fulltime blogger! To celebrate, my husband and I spent a month in Europe (I literally took 13,000 photos and am still culling through them—post coming very soon!).
I wake up every single day, excited to work. I wear what I want, travel when I want and spend time with people I love on my own schedule. Don’t get me wrong—it’s a lot of work. But Elite Blog Academy gave me a very clear, very easy to follow roadmap.
Elite Blog Academy opens the doors for enrollment one time a year. If you miss it, you’re stuck waiting another 365 days to get in.
