How to Build a Blogging Business

I launched my blog in 2019 and scaled it to a 7-figure business in under 2 years. I want to share everything I learned along the way.

To Grow Your Blog in 2023, You Need to Scale.

I created this blog to show you that you can start a successful blog – you just need to treat it like a real business from day one.

It’s a fact – over 95% of blogs fail. Traditional blogging advice tells you to start with a passion, create consistent content for a few years, and eventually monetize it. The problem with this strategy is it lacks one major component: monetization. If a blog isn’t treated as a real business from day one, revenue is put on the back burner, content churns out for years without a clear direction, no money is made, and the blogger quits or says their blog is “just a hobby.”

Why do blogs fail? It’s not from a lack of passion. It’s because bloggers can’t transition from writers to business owners.

They find that engaging in a passion and writing about a passion for years are two entirely different things.

That’s why I flipped the script and started treating my blog like a real business from day one. I took what I learned in the Austin tech world and scaled my blog’s systems like a startup. I went from tortured writer to CEO. I stopped writing and started scaling.

And I grew my blog to 500,000 monthly readers and over $250k a month in revenue.
