New Year: Why Not Start A Blog?
The New Year is a great time to start new things. Why not start a blog?Maybe you are someone that is very creative, a great cook, or just a genius when it comes to being a housewife, and you have a desire to share your experiences with others. Have you considered starting a blog? The new year is a great time to take that leap and just do it. It's been a very rewarding experience for me as I've loved getting to share, write, and meet some awesome people.

If you are thinking of starting a blog (and I hope you take this as encouragement to do so) and don't know where to start, this eBook: Building a Framework gives all the information you need!
It has been a year since I began blogging and let me tell you, Charming Imperfections would not be where it is today were it not for the amazing information included in this book. I honestly knew very, VERY little about blogging when I started out. I just knew I had a dream to write and share with others online.
The first few weeks of setting things up were a disaster! I thought I could do it all on my own by Googling all my questions. Boy, was I wrong!!! By trying to "do it myself", I wasted tons and tons of hours, stressed myself out to the max, and almost gave up on the whole thing before even beginning.
Abby's book was a turning point, though. The step-by-step instructions were enough to save my blog, but beyond just the instructions for setting up, Abby gives all you need to know about building a thriving, money making online business as well!
Let's let the numbers speak for themselves.
- Last November, 114 people visited my site.
- This November, after having read and applied the concepts in Building a Framework, we reached 57,981 people!
Ok, but what good are a bunch of page views really? That's another lesson you'll learn in this book: how to use that audience to bring in a real income.
Obviously, last year we weren't making any money through Charming Imperfections.
This November our income was as follows (I'm not sharing this to brag, but to encourage you):
- Ad Revenue: $166.24
- Product Sales: $304.30
- Sponsored Content: $300.00
- OTBM Contribution: $25.00
- Affiliate Income: $46.38
- Total: $841.92
Obviously there are expenses that come with running an online business like this, but the profit has made a huge difference for a young family like ours. Especially, since I get to stay home with our little one.
It's not all about the money, though. Through blogging I have met the most amazing people and have built some incredible friendships. Those people probably wouldn't be in my life now were it not for the help Building a Framework gave to me.
I could sing the praises of this eBook all day long, but encourage you to check it out for yourself. Blogging is such an exciting career, and the best way to get started on the right track is by learning from those who have done it all before and were successful! Building a Framework will guide you to become a proficient, money making blogger just like it did for me.
So, it's a New Year. Why not start a blog?
