Guest post by Bridget of Sunshine And Rainy Days

I spent hours creating an eBook called The Garage Sale Handbook. This was going to be it — the one thing that readers would love to give up their email address for.

Every one of my blog posts had an opt-in for The Garage Sale Handbook. It was also in the sidebar and the Hello Bar. I plugged it everywhere I could, even dedicating special blog posts to promote it.

What I didn’t realize is that my work wasn’t done with just one product, and that one opt-in was not nearly enough to resonate with everyone who visited my blog.

Monetize Your Blog… on a Shoestring Budget

If you have ever felt frustrated that you can’t figure out how to actually have a profitable blog…

If you’ve ever wondered how people make a part-time or full-time income from blogging…

If you’ve ever wished you could figure out how to quit your job and replace that income with blogging…

If you have a blog set up and running and you’re ready to start getting paid for your time and effort…

I’m here to help!

I get it — and I was once where you are. I was trying to figure out how on earth I could make a part-time or full-time income from home so I could stay home with my first baby.

The only problem was, we were living on a super tight budget and I didn’t have any extra money to invest in courses or classes or fancy software or systems. So I had to learn how to do it all myself and find creative ways to do things on our tiny budget.

Fast forward a number of years (14+ since I first started blogging!) and my husband is now home full-time, my blog earns 7 figures every year, we are completely debt-free (including our house!), we get to travel regularly, and give generously to causes we believe in.

All because of my blog. And I did all of this on a shoestring budget — without a college degree, without a marketing background, and without spending thousands of dollars on coaches, programs, or software.

I want to help you do the same!

Blogging Isn’t Dead!

So many people believe that blogs are no longer relevant or profitable. But I’m here to tell you that is just not the truth at all.

Let me be clear, since I first started back in 2005, blogging has changed a LOT. (Imagine trying to build a blog without Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or Instagram! Back in the day, we had to rely on commenting on other blogs and guest posting for people to actually find us on the internet!)

Yes, it’s a very different online world these days, but it is still very possible to make good income from blogging. In fact, advertisers and companies are spending millions of dollars each year in online advertising campaigns.

Plus, blog readers are even more willing than they used to be to buy digital products — because that’s how they consume much of their media now anyway!

There is no better time to monetize your blog than NOW!


Every week, I receive messages from my followers asking questions on how to take their blog to the next level. I want to help each and every person, but it would be impossible to offer one-on-one coaching to each of my followers. In fact, I could try, but I’d never sleep or eat or see my family!

But if I had the chance to sit down with you one-on-one, this course teaches you everything I would want to share.

It’s for someone who has their blog set up, who is regularly blogging, but who can’t figure out how to actually start making a part-time or full-time income from blogging.

It’s for the person who is tired of spending hours of time blogging and seeing no income for all their time invested. It’s for the person who doesn’t have money to invest in expensive software or programs and who just wants to figure out how to actually start making a true part-time (or full-time!) Income from blogging.


This is the most comprehensive course I’ve ever created. It’s packed with practical, step-by-step help and ideas, hands-on tutorials, and worksheets.

Every word was written by me — which means that it’s not going to be techie language you can’t understand. Because if you’ve been following me for more than a minute, you know I’m not a techie person!

In this course, I will teach you:

  • Why you need both passive and active blogging income (and how to set up both!)
  • What ad networks you should join and how to get started earning while you sleep.
  • How I effectively use affiliate marketing to earn thousands each month.
  • My best tips and strategies for effectively promoting referral and affiliate links.
  • Where to find real, legit sponsored post opportunities and my well-tested formula to determine how much you should actually charge for these.
  • Simple ways to create and sell ebooks — with very little cash outlay to create them.
  • Other proven income-earning ideas you should consider to boost your blog’s profit.
  • What types of affiliate disclosures and privacy policies you need to have in place to follow the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines.
  • How to track your blog income and follow legal requirements for blog posts.
  • My favorite affiliate companies — and the best ones to get started with.


When you purchase Monetize Your Blog, you’ll get access to:

  • 23 hands-on video lessons taught by me
  • Supplementary video tutorials where I show you a screencast of my computer and teach you how to implement what you’ve learned and how I do things on my blog
  • Our online course portal with all of the lessons and video information

Guest post by Bridget of Sunshine And Rainy Days

In the back of my mind, I knew there had to be a better way. There had to be one piece of software I could use for all of my graphic needs. Something that gave me the flexibility to create designs I could see in my head but couldn’t figure out how to replicate on any of the free software I had used.

When I started blogging in 2014, I really wanted to learn how to create printables. I dabbled in a few different free programs to create pins and printables for my site. Some were okay and others I had a hard time wrapping my mind around, but I pieced it together and made it work as best I could.
