I met with a friend earlier today. We talked about how I was and how she was. She mentioned that she was focusing on her blog since she was making around $1000 a month. “Whaaaaat?!” I couldn’t believe my ears. Then, she went on to say that in good months, she would actually earn more, around close to $2000. I nearly fell of my seat. The $2000 would probably be one contract for me that spans 6 months. And she quickly said that she was nothing compared to others out there who are earning way beyond what she is getting. “Whaaaaat?!”, I said again in disbelief. I would have sworn I said “Whaaaaat?!” quite a few times during that conversation, dubbing it my word for the day. I found it bewildering that I have been in this industry for the longest time and yet, I still learn new things!
This conversation got me thinking. Why didn’t I think about all maximizing monetizing my blog?! haha! And the other thought was, I need to tell the world (maybe not the world)… or probably just those who have a knack and talent for it, that yes, you can earn through blogging.
Talking about blogging and earning has been an issue for some. It was probably because some scenarios that involve discussing blogging and earning touched on ethics. But most of the scenarios, where pure talent, passion and effort come into play (which doesn’t involve ethics), shouldn’t be an issue. A person with unquestionable talent in writing, who uses that skill to create a blog,, should be given the opportunity to earn from it and make it his or her profession. To tell you honestly, I now at least have a handful of people (2 of which I am pretty sure) who earn a living by writing down relevant and useful content.
Hopefully now, the non-believers are believers, the more pressing issue (because we need to start blogging A-S-A-P) is where do we start? I suggest that you better start quickly and make things happen and to START, check out the WordPress Blogging Basics Course.
The WordPress Blogging Basics Course was created by my friend, Marv De Leon — a very skilled, talented, brand builder.

If you have the time and if you really want to make things happen next year, start now! Really, what’s stopping you? There are a lot of things in my life that I have said YES to. I never regretted saying YES. All of these are things that you learn from and learning is always a good investment.
I love how Marv placed this in his announcement:
THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR…
People who won’t commit to finish the training
Those who will not commit to taking action and apply what they learned from the training
People who who don’t have the patience and think that blogging is a “get rich quick” scheme
I know we are talking of thousands of dollars here, but blogging isn’t a get-rich-quickly strategy. It takes a lot of patience and perseverance. The name of the game is consistency. If you don’t decide to place time and effort into it, don’t even try. It’s a commitment. All of the professional bloggers I know will give you the same advice. If you place your heart into it, it is something that will give you fulfilment and financial success.
So again, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you start by enrolling in this course: WORDPRESS BLOGGING BASICS
