Usually I schedule my blog posts to go out every week but seeing as how today is my birthday, I wanted to write a blog post on the same day.
I thought to myself that I haven’t updated my “Life As A Blogger” series in a long time so I decided my birthday would be a great time to do it.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to blog about to be honest but once I checked my affiliate earnings (as I usually do every morning), I immediately knew what to write about.
This morning, I received a birthday present from the Universe that put a great big smile on my face.
I woke up at 6am (it’s not usual I wake up that early, I just wanted to get the most out of my day) and to my delight, I see that I have earned close to $200 while I was sleeping!
Now $190 may not sound like much, and it really isn’t when you consider what top bloggers earn, but this was a personal record for me.
I’ve never made that much, that early.
As for my earnings, I usually make anywhere from $0-$100 a day but today, just before 7am, my Share-A-Sale account showed me that I had made over $193.55 in income from 2 sales that came out to $1935.46.
This is not income from this blog (aBlogOnBlogging) and not my case study either.
It’s just from one blog; my “main income” blog if you will.
Why Am I Telling You All This?
I don’t usually like to post income updates because a; it’s not that big of a deal and b; I don’t discuss finances, but I just had to share this moment with you today.
I wanted you to see that even though you might not be making money now, it doesn’t mean that you never will.
Online marketing gurus try to sell you by saying statements such as: “Make $1000 by tomorrow morning” and “Start making hundreds with this simple method“.
Those kind of statements are just not true. I wish they were, but they’re not.
See making money online doesn’t happen overnight. It takes months (and even years) to start seeing results and profit.
Also the reason I’m sharing this with you today is because I wanted you to see the power of online business in action.
I made $190+ while I was asleep! Where else can you get that kind of deal?
This is what can be achieved by blogging. If you work hard and dedicate consistent time to your blog, it will eventually reward you.
I have never met a blogger that has stuck by his/her blog for over a year and doesn’t make money off it. It’s just impossible!
How Do I Make Money Online?
I have many ways I make money online but my favourite has to be affiliate marketing.
The income I made was because somebody bought products that I recommended and I got paid for it (10% to be exact).
If you want to know more about affiliate marketing, I suggest you check out my free eBook: ‘How To Win At Affiliate Marketing“.
It will show you all the steps me and other money-making bloggers are taking to make consistent income from our blogs.
I am by no means an expert or a “guru” at this stuff. The only thing that separates me from the people that never make a cent in their life online is I got the proper training and I applied the necessary steps to start seeing results.
Trust me when I say; making money online is not that complicated.
I hope you enjoyed my post today, I’ve kept it short so I can go and celebrate my birthday now with a big smile on my face. 🙂
I hope this post showed you that making money with blogging really is possible. All it takes is some effort and time.
