There Is No Alternative For Truth!
People think they can earn lot of money in blogging, yes that’s true but not in the initial stages. The truth is it will take time to build your online blogging career. For some bloggers it has taken years to earn their first dollar online.
Normally people think once they set up their blog that’s it, job done and people will rush to their blog to buy what they are promoting. But that’s not the case. Setting up your blog is the very basic thing in your blogging career. In order to succeed you need to attract potential or targeted traffic. You need to work hard and blogging is not for those who want quick cash and want to be rich by overnight.
My Blogging Experience And My Story
Since 2008 I was trying different programs to earn money online. To name a few paid to click, get paid to, captcha typing, email reading, ad posting, data entry, surveys, watching videos, playing games etc I lost lot of money and my valuable time. Of all my efforts went on vain for example in one program I was working full time for nearly one month and later I came to know that was a scam program. In another program I was typing as per their instruction and they didn’t paid me.
And to be honest there are some genuine companies they paid me but the worrying part is the earning was very low (Paid to click sites). Working for the whole day also it was a struggle for me to make one dollar.
Started My Research
I do know people are making lot of money but I am not able to make money so I am missing something and I am on the wrong programs which is not getting me expected results. In my research on Google reading lot of testimonies, reading lot of money making guides, reading lot of articles and books I discovered one amazing program.
What’s that? Are you interested to know my findings?
Here we go… One of the best way to earn money online is through blogging. Here is the sad part you don’t wanna hear… It will take time to earn money via blogging, you need to be consistent and keep on working without giving up. So I thought anyhow I was finding new programs every now then and investing my time and money why not blogging?
I am aware of the importance of learning and training so I was doing my research on finding the best place where I can learn about making money online. I came up with one of the very best program which has Over 1.3 Million Aspiring and Highly Successful Internet Entrepreneurs and in the market teaching people over 10+ years.
I Am A Full Time Blogger
Since December 2017 I am working as a full time blogger working from home being my own boss and it’s really awesome. Started to earn gradually and now I am earning nearly what I was earning when I am working full time in a day job. Planning different things to improve and grow my online business. Continuous learning is the key.
To be honest for several Months I didn’t made a single cent and I made my first earnings in my sixth month it was $8 but I never wanted to quit because I know it will take time and I was working on my blog. Now I am able to make a full time earning from my blog.
After seeing zero earnings in the first five months and if I would have made a decision to quit I won’t be in this current situation, working from home and making a full time income at the comfort of staying at home. Thank GOD I didn’t quit!
Just shared my story to let you know it’s possible with strong determination and continuous effort. Still having doubt whether you can make money online? For more information read my article Is Making Money Online A Nightmare?
