How to Start a Blog With Launch That Blog

Starting my blog three years ago completely changed my life. I went from being a high school band director that hated his job to working from literally anywhere that has an internet connection and choosing my own hours.

Because of this site and the skills that I picked up from blogging, I outperformed my monthly teaching income within 3 months of quitting my job. Now just three years later, this site brings in over $50,000 per month (and my best month so far was $155,000!).

I don’t have a degree in writing, and there’s nothing “special” that I have which led to my success as a blogger. I’m just a former teacher who worked hard and figured things out along the way.

And since I get emails and private messages every single day asking how to start a blog, I decided to put my teacher hat back on and show you exactly how to start your own money-making blog right now!

I just recently switched over to ConvertKit from MailChimp to handle my email campaigns and am very happy with it. If you are wanting to sell courses or products – this is a really good service. They’ll even help you embed forms if you need it, and there are all kinds of “automations” that can help you create a professional email sales funnel.

PIC MONKEY

I use PicMonkey for all of the edited photos that you see on the site. I am NOT an artsy person, and I am still somehow able to use this very well. This is a must have if you share photos on social media or need better featured pictures on your blog. There is a free version with a  bunch of ads, so I use the paid version for about $2 a month.
