Want to start a blog? So did I when I graduated college.
When I first started this blog more than 5 years ago, I had no idea that it would grow into what it is now.
Because of the work that I put into this blog, I was able to use the extra side-hustle income to pay of over $32,000 of credit card debt. (You can read my story here.) Then each month my income continued to grow.
First I consistently made $500 a month.
Then, I saw my first $1,000 month and again and again I reached an extra thousand dollars per month.
After that, I looked for ways to increase my income and hit my goal at the time which was to earn $5,000 per month. That would allow me to leave my full time job and work for myself.
That happened after the 4-year mark.
All of that came from the blog and what I learned from it.
