How it all began and what it’s all about
It all started innocently enough with a single question. “What do you think of advertising and sponsorship on blogs?“
I had no idea what I was starting and where it would lead! It quickly became the most read and shared post on my blog – which was a modest blog about beginner sewing and learning to sew over at So Sew Easy. Readers answered a poll and I published the results here – “My blog earnings update and Blog Money Making Download”
And the response was astonishing with a LOT of readers downloading the notes and signing up for my ‘Blogging Advice Newsletter’.
Looking back, it was a rather ambitious project. My blog had only started in Dec 2012 and by the first week of February 2013 I was offering blogging and money making advice to other bloggers ! Well, I was planning to share what I was learning, not setting myself up as an expert. So that we could all share in the success – and mock my failures!
The mailing list for the newsletter grew as word got about and I decided in Feb 2013 to set up this separate website where I could share my ideas by way of a permanent record, rather than just in a mailing list. This way I hope to reach an even bigger audience and show all bloggers, old and new, young and old, male and female, whatever the subject of the blog – that earning money from your blog is not only possible – it’s fun!
Each month I’ll be sharing what I earned and where I earned it in my Income page – I wouldn’t be surprised if this became the most visited page on the site. I’m not making thousands, I’m not working full time on my blogging and I don’t pretend to be some internet guru. I’m just a crafty person, doing a bit of blogging and making what I can from it – and I will help you to do exactly the same.

I can only tell you that in the long term, where bloggers stick at blogging and do it for some years, grow their sites etc they wish that they had started out using their own self-hosted WordPress because its much harder to start all over again later on with a new domain name. I think if you can afford a few dollars to invest now in the domain name and hosting, its a god idea to do so, and then you also know that Google won’t be able to just delete your Blogger account too.
