How to Start a Food Blog & Make With It! Because that’s what you really want to know, right? Okay – maybe not everybody starts out hoping to make money but most bloggers either start out with hope of earning income or get there eventually.
As you might have guessed, I’m not an expert. Like… not at all. I’m a cake blogger with a math degree and I’m a fast learner – so I do what I can, but I am making a steady part-time income from blogging (and I’m hoping that part-time income becomes full-time income sooner than later) and I’ve learned a few things along the way.
Let me first tell you a little of my story. I started blogging at a frugal/coupon blog way back in 2009. I was heavily into extreme couponing (before that was even a thing) and shopping all the deals and I was reading tons of blogs about those subjects so I figured I’d start my own to help out local folks getting in the coupon game.
It was fun, but I was on the computer all.day.long. with not a lot to show for it. I was making a fraction of minimum wage and I was burning out fast I think I made around $3 my first month and by the time I stopped blogging at Adventures in Savings in 2012, I was still only making maybe $200-300 per month (I had high months and low months – that’s my best guess average).
That was all fine and dandy and I was thankful for the extra income, but it wasn’t enough. I was investing way too much time for so little income…. this blog post was way too long, so I switched it to a page and you need to click here to keep reading!
