Really. Blogging is a real online job. It can be for moms, dads students. Anybody can do it if they enjoy writing, but don’t be desperate for money now. This is something that you’re going to build up over time, and sometimes it takes like six to 18 months to really start making good money. So you have to put the work in and I am finding it’s really that way with any online business. You have to put the work in before you’re, going to start making a lot of money.

Everybody starts from the bottom. The neat thing about blogging is that it’s an online job that you can choose any topic that you’re really passionate about so start playing around. I’r going to give you a site later in this article, where you can find 12 different companies that actually hire people to write. If that’s something you would prefer to do, instead of starting your own blog and a lot of them are different niches, where you can go in and write something that you’re passionate about.

There are four main ways to make money when you’re blogging and that’s in advertising you can get paid for putting ads on your blog. Can you believe that so you get to enjoy writing and then you get paid by just putting some ad advertising on there. You can make money with blogging as an affiliate marketer. This is when you get paid a commission for any products that you can sell on your blog. So basically you would talk about blogged about different products.

People want them, they will buy them, and then you get a commission. So that’s basically how fillion marketing works, but your main job could be the blogging. If that’s what you’d love to do, digital products can be sold. These are products like ebooks or courses, and things like that, and actually you can even write ebooks for other people or write courses for other people. If that’s something that you enjoy doing, you can also get paid as a blogger by providing services.

If you’d like to work one-on-one with people you can, a blogging is a great way to generate leads for coaching or consulting, and things like that.

I’r going to provide it for you, underneath in the description where you can get paid $ 100 plus just for writing.

So if you don’t want to take the time to set up your own blog, then go in here and look at these different avenues of income. One is for writing for a family fun magazine, you get paid a dollar 25 a word for your post, so you get to enjoy writing and get paid for it. Another one here, her view from home. They just want you to write things about topics that happen in your home. Just talk about your own life experiences.

How cool is that and get paid for it? A hundred dollars for 4,000 views yummy mummy club, if you like, to talk about food and nutrition for your children. So these are a lot of mom sites, but this just gives you an example of other ways that you can make money with your blogging and again I’ll put that site down there below, for you here are all the five different ways that you can earn an Income, if you want to start a blog, you need to pick a niche that basically that means.

SIMPLE Writers Bullet Journal | 2019 Set Up

I’r also going to be giving you Guys a little recap, because I do bimonthly goals on this blog of how I Did on my goals for November and December, and what I am looking to do for January and February alright, so first thing I did when setting up my bullet Journal for 2019 was to make sure I had all the materials I wanted, and so I’m Just going to briefly list them here, and they will be in the description below as Well, if you want to check them out, but first of all, I love using the Sharpie Fine lighter pens that they are my absolute favorite and you’re going to see.

That they just write really well and really stick out on the page. And then my Favorite highlighters are the mild liner highlighters and you can see they come In a variety of colors – and I actually use them for most of my banners and Different things like that, so you’ll see what those look like. Then I have some Sticky notes that I wanted to get in sort of matching pastel colors to my Notebook a ruler and last of all my notebook, which I originally got from Barnes & Noble, but I did find on Amazon.

So if you’re looking to get something Like this, they have a bunch of different patterns. You can check that out again in The description below ok, so, let’s see what is inside my bullet journal, so First thing: we’re going to see it’s just a simple 2019 welcome, page I eventually want to put my word of the year here, which I’m still trying to Figure out, if you guys have any suggestions, let me know in the comments But one thing I do want to say, as we proceed, is I’m pretty minimalistic when It comes to and below journal I like it to be really clean.

Obviously I love Colors, but I keep it pretty simple and I also keep it simple so that it’s easy to Update and I don’t have to spend hours and hours on each spread. So if that Sounds good to you definitely keep reading, because I just make it really Simple and really clean and really easy to keep up throughout the year, then, as We go to the next page. You would usually see an index here because you’ll usually Have just different spreads like daily and weekly and monthly spreads sort of Interspersed with all these other kinds of spreads, but what I actually do is I Put all of those different spreads in the back, and I start from the back and Go forward so I’m going to show you this at the end, but what I like to keep is Just my planning pages, my like monthly, weekly yearly kind of pages, I have to be Getting sort of going straight through without other spreads sort of going in Between so you’ll see how that functions in a minute, but first of all I have my Future log, and so I just have it the different months – sort of set up with Just major events or holidays, so I can keep track of the year.

Also on these Pages I have little markers for just tracking my social media stuff’s on Instagram YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and my newsletter, and I just want to track Throughout each month, how many followers or subscribers I have for each social Media platform and then next I have my first monthly spread and so you’ll see Here that I have this first page, that is just the events of the particular month.

And what I also like to do is use this as like a Thanksgiving. This was supposed To say Thanksgiving but, like I thinks, giving our gratitude page And sort of highlight the major things that happen throughout the month, so for Example on Monday put that I hit 900 subs on YouTube. So thank you. Everybody So much for subscribing and helping me get to 900 subscribers so fun, but those Are the kind of things that I sort of put in here and Different events, like my dad’s 60th birthday and all that Jess, then over Here on this page, I sort of separate my goals into author and, like business Goals because I do some side business stuff, but then also personal goals and If you’ve been on my blog for a while, you’re, probably wondering hey, don’t you Do bimonthly goals – and I do I just forgot to create that page first So it actually comes a little bit later, so I’ll show you that afterwards, but I Also take those bimonthly goals and separate them into the monthly goals.

So That’s what this page is: you’ll also notice that we’re about halfway through The month and I haven’t checked off a bunch of things, but I usually wait to Sort of go through and check off these things until I’ve been through the whole Month I go back here and I do like a little review. The next thing I include In succession are just the week’s spreads and I sort of do daily stuff, Within each week, so at the beginning of the week I will put my author fiscals Slash personal goals, sort of up here and then progressively as it fills out.

I Will do Monday and then Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Friday, it’s sort of Like whatever fits where so, I can do it progressively and I don’t have to like Waste space and then I just set up the next week – and you can see here again That I keep it super simple, I’m just using my highlighter to highlight the Banners and then I just use little circles instead of checkboxes. I also try To set my priorities so you’ll see here I have some little stars and I use those Stars to sort of mark the things that are top on my priority for either the Week or the day and to sort of say hey if I get nothing else done, if I get Those things done, then I’ve been a success today, so usually I’ll have about Two or three per day, and also if I don’t get to something I put a little line – With a little arrow, just telling me that I need to push it off to you, the next Day now, this next spread is my January February bimonthly goals and I wanted to Tell you guys what I did and what I didn’t do in November and December, but Before we get there, I did promise that I was going to show you what spreads I’m In the back here and so here again I have my index and then the following: Pages, I have different spreads so this spread.

I have spread ideas so, as I see Other bullet articles or get ideas. I sort of list ideas, Of spreads that I can do in the future and then the ones I’ve done so far are Like a writing and author calendar, so I wanted to sort of see the year at a Glance and see just different events that are happening that pertain to Authors or writers, and sort of either work my content around that or work. My Schedule around those things, the next few pages are for my author platform.

Mostly for content, brainstorming and planning – and it just makes it so much Easier for the rest of the year, so this first spread is my content. Brainstorming, Page and so obviously I’ve blocked a lot of stuff off because they don’t want to Give too much away, but I listed out a bunch of YouTube like article types that I Could do or topics I could do and then I also made a list of people. I’d love to Collab with this year and just general article ideas, there are like more specific Than these, and for any of you, all they’re tubers out there, if you’d, like Me to do a article that sort of lists out more of these kind of ideas, so that you Can get ideas? Definitely let me know – and I can do that.

The next page is a Content. Calendar for the year specifically for YouTube, but everything I do sort of Blogs and instagrams sort of revolves around what I do for YouTube. So I didn’t Want to give too much away again, but I did try to plan at least four ideas for Every month, so that’s what sort of penciled in in here and then I write Them in pen as I do them, the next spread is best of author to 2018, so this was Sort of part of my planning, where I sort of went back and looked at my top search.

Terms and presented readed and different things like that. To help me Plan for the new year, then, I am also a Christian and I very Much believe in the power of prayer, so I wanted to have a prayer request spread Here and then you guys saw this in a previous article, but I just made my General 2019 goals here I also did a spread about just my routines daily Weekly and monthly that pertain to author stuff and more author platform.

Stuff and then my last fret here is my TBR and log for the year, because one of My goals is definitely to read a whole more and so obviously I have a bunch of Other books that I want to read, but I just started off with a few and I’ve Already completed cinder this January, so that was a really good read and I’m Excited to sort of add to this list and keep reading as well sort of check them. Off as I go and sort of log how long it’s taken me to read as well.

Finally, as Promised I just wanted to give you guys a little recap. I do this to keep myself Accountable, but also to inspire you guys for what I got done in November in December and what I want to get done in January in February, And obviously this is from a different bullet journal, so you couldn’t just Ignore this is supposed to be for November and December of 2018 yeah. These Are the things I got done? I won NaNoWriMo.

I started working with my cps For my work in progress for draft, I wanted to read at least one book a month. I’r actually read for I wanted to post one YouTube article a week and I actually Checked this off, but there was one week that I didn’t cuz. It was just a little Crazy during the holidays, but for the most part I did that we hosted the Nanowrimo house Cup in the plotter life writers, Facebook group, which was so much Fun I released one newsletter each month and I also launched my author website.

Services what I didn’t get done, I didn’t get to prepare for betas that I wanted To in January, but I’ll give you an update over here in a second, I wanted to Hit 1000 subscribers by New Year’s on YouTube. I didn’t hit that, but, like I Said before I just passed 900, so I think maybe this month, maybe next month that Would be awesome, and I had certain Instagram, Twitter and Blog goals, but just with everything else, I wasn’t as consistent with that.

So I Definitely want to get better at that for this next round for this January and February, these are my goals, separated into categories so for writing. For January I want to finish rounds with my cps and then in February. I want to edit My draft, based on that feedback and prep it for betas, hopefully to start that in March, yes, I still want to make this then for reading. I want to read at least one Book a month and in here I will put the two books one for January, one for February here so I can log that then for author.

I want to do at least one article A week one live stream a month, and that includes my secret project with Bethany Which, hopefully, I will be telling you about soon Never so media stuff. I want to keep up with The plotter life Reuters Facebook group, we have some weekly threads going on to Help you guys plan as well and succeed in your right early goals and we want to Do one event over the next two months, I want to plan a year’s worth of content.

Which actually already did so? I should be checking that off. I want to figure Out batching routines, so maybe batching enough content for two months at a time. Ooh, that’s a big one. Then these were the other things that I didn’t do the last Two months that I just want to do at least one post on Instagram a week, but I Do stories like pretty much every day, Twitter, at least once a day, and I want To blog at least once a week with a Pinterest post, then for my website, Newsletter, I want to do one newsletter a month.

How to write technical blog posts – talk by Quincy Larson

We got some energy, Alright awesome That that lunch is digested and you’re ready to learn. Okay, so…, I am Quincy and I’m going to talk about how to write technical blog posts that people will actually read That that “, actually read” part, is important. So umm, you may be wondering. Why is this developer talking about writing? Well, I worked as a journalist for about three years after college and I would say that technical blogging was absolutely critical to people actually realizing that freeCodeCamp existed and to our early community growth We’re a small nonprofit.

We don’t have like a lot of resources for advertising or for public relations, so we turn to trying to write articles worth reading, So I’ve been writing very actively on both Medium and on Quora, and I also edit freeCodeCamp’s Medium publication, which publishes a whole lot of Articles on Development, Design and Data Science, So my goal is for all of you to walk out of here with both the confidence and the tools that you need to be able to write technical articles, that people will sit down and actually invest the time in reading.

So there are really three elements to this. First, you need substance. Second, you need to package that substance for consumption And Third, you need to go out and publicize it. So before we get into that, though, I want to see why people are blogging. I saw a lot of hands go up earlier for people who are blogging, I’m just going to go up right now, Who is blogging because they want to impress future employers.

Ok, quite a few. All right, who wants to apply recently learned knowledge. One of the best ways to reinforce your own learning is to turn around and teach it to somebody else and to technical blog post is an excellent way to do that All right and who just wants to share their insights with other developers and kind of pay. It forward Quite a few of you,… And . Maybe nobody will raise their hand, because this is a little immodest, but who is interested in becoming a thought leader in a specific domain? All right Yeah! You want to.

… So you want to get on the conference circuit…. You want to get on podcasts like “ CodeNewbie”, and you want to raise awareness of your area of expertise Great. It does not matter like, regardless of your reason, it does not matter Really. The goal should be to just get people to read your articles. If you set out to achieve that one single goal, it will help you with all four of those objectives.

Let’s start with substance, You need to write something that matters And…. I will tell you that people quickly, they have all these kind of rules of thumb about blogging like oh, it should be 600 words and uh. You know just quickly get it out there and and blog every single day. I don’t buy any of that stuff. I really think that it’s all about substance When you have something to say that’s when you open your mouth and you say it And you can really hone in and take that substance and turn it into a whole lot of blog posts.

This is a guy named Peter Paul Kosh. He is the author of the popular “ Quirks Mode”, blog and “. Quirks Mode” is really awesome because it’s focused just on the quirks between different browsers and different versions of browsers, So he’s…. He totally geeked out on the difference between how JavaScript is processed by Internet Explorer, 10 and mobile, Safari and Opera, And his blog will show you all the different intricacies of those for when you’re trying to develop cross browser applications,.

.. And those considerations. So what did he do? He did his homework. He learned a whole lot about this one subject and he went really deep on it. Then he turned around and figured out ways that he could write about it in novel ways and that’s what you should do. A lot of people may lament that, ah everything’s been written, it’s all been done. Every flavor of breakfast cereal has been tried. Reality is there.

Are always new ways, new permutations, that you can toggle and switch around to make new original spins on old topics? A lot of blog posts are written either from a hello world, absolute beginner perspective, and then a lot of them are written from “. I’ve been coding for 10 years”. There aren’t enough articles that are kind of in the middle, for example, so experience levels, one dimension of which you can play around.

Then there are a lot of opportunities for taking something. That’s been written in a different language and blogging about how to do it in another language Or introducing humor right Humor makes your blog post palatable, so use it liberally, and you can even write joke posts that are basically parodying something but teaching at the same time. So here’s the quick case study. I want everybody to meet Amber She’s, a Seattle-based marine biologist by training.

She got a master’s degree in marine biology and she worked at Disney surveying the animals and doing science related to the animals that the Disney had in its parks and, unfortunately, marine biology is a field that a lot of people want to get into people love animals…., It’s very competitive Around the holiday season. She found herself with her contract, not renewed To cheer herself up. She was really pumped.

She was like “ all right, I’m going to go, see the new Star Wars. Movie”. Did anybody see the new Star Wars movie, “? Rogue One” Okay awesome, so she was really excited because, like the first time it looked like a Star Wars movie where the protagonist was female, But when she walked out of the theater, she had a weird sense that maybe the protagonist wasn’t the female character And sure Enough she did the math and she counted up all the words and she found that the main character actually didn’t didn’t speak as many lines as some of the other characters, And she also noticed that there were far fewer female characters in that movie than there were Male characters.

.. And she was like well, this seemed like it was marketed as a movie, you know to women to try to get more women into Star Wars, So she looked at all the other blockbuster movies, like the top 10 grossing movies of 2016. She built a bunch of data visualizations. She wrote scripts to dive through and count all the dialogue and assign the gender to the different characters, and she built this beautiful series of data visualizations, and so she had the substance.

She just needed to sit down and write about it and that’s what she did. I coached her through it and we wrote a Medium publication and her article was huge. It got picked up by Mashable, it got picked up by IGN a whole lot of International Press And it raised awareness of this issue, So she was able to use her scientific skills from being a marine biologist kind of poured it over to doing data visualization and Data science and, as a result, a whole lot of employers and prospective freelancing contracts came her way from this article.

So there’s just one blog post right. You only need to write one good blog post if it has good substance. So it’s a lot of hard work. Expect to invest a lot of time and energy Good blog posts don’t come easily, Not good technical, blog post. The second lesson I want you to all walk away from is that packaging is important. The way you take your substance, the way you package it and present it to the reader is very important.

This is the most expensive vodka in the world, I’m not a vodka connoisseur or anything, but when I saw these bottles I was immediately sucked in and I wanted to learn more about it right,.., It’s packaging. Well, what’s the packaging on a blog post, You got your headline: You’ve got your lead image, You have the formatting of the text in the subheads and the pull quotes, And then you’ve got the platform that you publish it in All of those things are considerations that You should keep in mind when it comes to packaging, your technical blog post.

I want to talk about headlines specifically, because I want to point out that that is all that about 95 percent of people are going to read. They are scrolling through their their Twitter feed, while they’re sitting on the toilet or while they’re holding the handle on a bus and they’re. Like do I want to read this. Do I want to read this? They read your headline and it’s up to your headline, to entice them to read the rest of your article.

So… Has anybody heard the old adage by Abe Lincoln about chopping down trees. So If I had eight hours to write a technical blog post, I’d spend the first six sharpening the headline. It’s true. The headline really is Empires have been built on the backs of headlines. Has anybody heard of BuzzFeed, You know and there’s a science to it? There’s a lot you can, you can read up on and you can A/B test your headlines.

You can show them to your friends and just try to figure out if people will click on them. It’s really that important and then the images Humans are highly visual creatures. Like our our visual cortex is one of the biggest parts of our brain, So you’ve got ta cater to that You’ve got ta, show people images, 86 % of the top blog posts, have images in them and on average, they’ll have at least one image.

Every 350 words Some of you may be like “. Well, I can’t afford a license. Really good images”. Well, there’s great news: there are so many generous photographers out there who take their images and turn them to “, Creative Commons” or even “ Creative Commons Zero”, Which doesn’t even require attribution. You can just splash their photo up on there And this website “ Pexels”. You can search around and find images that are public domain or Creative Commons licensed on a number of platforms.

So in terms of formatting, you need to be sure that you don’t get the Picardian “ wall of text” right. People will bounce if they see English comp. 101 eight sentence paragraphs Remember: Reddit, is only an alt tab away So be sure that you show them nice short paragraphs, nice short sentences,…, It’s not a matter of sounding… Like like dumbing it down A lot. People look at it. That way, You can express the exact same concepts in much simpler words, And you can use short paragraphs and you can use white space.

You can use subheads you can use pull quotes all those things to break that up. The platform you publish it on makes a big difference. These are some of the most popular ways that people publish their technical blog posts. So I’m a big fan of “ Medium”, It’s ad free, It’s it’s user supported and it allows for easy export of your content and it has a built-in audience. That’s quite big. They get like 86 million visits a month, And then you can also post on blog on your own private blog.

You can just use a Github pages blog and Create get your own domain and set it up that way too. There are trade-offs associated with all these. If you happen to have a whole lot of friends on LinkedIn or if you happen to have a whole lot of friends on Facebook, that might be a good place to publish too Notice a lot of celebrities have been blogging on directly on Facebook. So here’s another case study.

This is Ohans. He is a web developer in Lagos, Nigeria and he created this amazing guide to Flexbox. The only problem was he just created markdown files and folders and pushed it to Github and left…. He left it at that. Well, you can go one step further and actually write an article, a proper article and that’s what I convinced him to do. So, if you look at this, he has a nice headline that accurately describes It’s not a clickbait headline.

What the article is and then he’s got some images… He breaks up the text with tweets and he’s got subheadings he’s got short paragraphs short sentences. It’s easy to read: It’s a breezy read, even though It’s about ten thousand words Right, like you’re, going to be reading for about an hour and you’re literally going to learn all about Flexbox And it may seem like well who has time to sit down and read An hour-long article about flexbox People read 500 word blog posts right Well.

Actually this is one of the most popular technical articles ever published Its been viewed more than a hundred thousand times And, as a result, he got inquiries from book publishers. He even had some course platforms reach out to him who wanted him to create some workshops on Flexbox, So yeah and he had substance. He knew flexbox very well. He packaged it properly and he profited Lesson number three publicize.

You may have heard the expression in software development “, The last 10 % of the work takes 90 percent of the time.”. Well, let me tell you publicizing. Your work is the last 10 % and it’s going to take 90 % of your time. There is no “, build it and they’ll come”. You need to go out and tell people that this exists and you need to actively advocate for people to read your own article. One place you can put.

It is Hacker News I like to call it “ the Hacker News lottery”, because honestly there’s like…, I could publish like the best article I’ve ever written on Hacker News and nobody would notice or some random article that I published might show up at the top One day Because somebody submitted it, It’s like totally random and I can tell you, I see totally random things on Hacker News. You see totally random things at the top of Reddit sometimes, But if you keep submitting every every time you submit That’s a lottery ticket right and you you need to pay to win or you need to play to win.

… So You can also target specific Facebook groups. There are a lot of really big Facebook groups, some of them local to your city. Maybe your alumni group on Facebook, from your university or from your high school Share it with your friends. That way. Groups are a great way to spread it. You can also use LinkedIn. People do use LinkedIn groups, it does send like email, digests People might see it umm and then I would also say, use other people’s audiences.

So if you publish on a Medium publication, You’re immediately kind of hijacking the audience of that publication for a moment to get their attention If you publish it in Forbes or TechCrunch, or some of these other major publications that actually submit kind of op-ed reader posts and And you can actually become a writer for Forbes or a writer for TechCrunch and publish right on there and that way, you’re borrowing their credibility as well as their audience.

So, just to summarize Three things to remember: Create technical blog posts that are substantial Package them for consumption and publicize them like crazy. If you do that, you’ll write blog posts that people will actually sit down and read. Thank you very much.

Ok, you guys here we go so the very first thing that I recommend, if you are starting on the world wide web, doing anything regarding the public is that you create a landing page.

If you do not have a website, if you have a website even better, but I’m starting, let’s say from the beginning, if you were just starting out and all you have – are your social media sites, I recommend that you create a landing page or a web site, But I’m not going to get into the whole website thing, I’m just going to give you the basics of a landing page for a landing page. I recommend that you use MailChimp.

It is free. You can create landing pages with MailChimp, as you can see here, and you can create beautiful pages like you can see here in just a few minutes. So the next thing that you need to do is you need to create your email list right. That is so so important you guys when you are working with the public. It is important to start getting your own contacts, don’t just depend on Facebook or YouTube or Instagram or LinkedIn, because all these things can one day disappear, and then you have lost every single contact that you’ve made every single connection that you have made, but with an Email list – this is yours, it is priceless right, so you use MailChimp to create a landing page use MailChimp to create a to start.

Creating your email list, one of the best ways to start getting people to sign up to your email list, is to give something away for free. So whatever John Wright you’re in, I recommend that you let’s go here. I recommend that you use canva with canva. You can create all kinds of goodies to give away to your audience as an incentive for them to sign up to your email list. You can create anything that attracts them in your in your niche.

So if you’re, a writer, maybe you can do a checklist of things to do for like say, NaNoWriMo, that’s coming up. If you are in the cooking industry, you can do a recipe and tell them to to sign up to your email list to get the full recipe and maybe five more and you can create all these beautiful things with canva and canva is free, oh, and so Is MailChimp by the way, all free? So, as you can see here, I use canva for everything I create my quotes here with for Instagram, I create my trackers.

I create an outline anything that I want to give away to my audience. I created first in canva and then I lose load it onto my email program here with MailChimp and when someone signs up to my email list, they get a beautiful PDF. The next thing that I recommend that you do is that you sign up with the affiliate programs with Amazon or Target or any any of these big companies that you can sign up.

They pretty much. Let everybody sign up. I’ve never heard of anybody not being able to sign up, so I think you’re definitely a shoo-in, but what I mean by this four years for five years, I was blogging and I was recommending products and books for my audience to read and I never got a Penny for any of it when you join with the affiliate program with Amazon or Target, and you recommend a duck a product and they that person clicks on that link.

Let’s say you’re recommending a book and they click on the link and they buy that book. You get a commission for it, so don’t don’t don’t not do this, you guys it’s so important. Even every little penny counts as you’re growing in the industry. Okay. The next thing I recommend that you do is that you join Facebook groups, so many different Facebook groups, like you, can see here. I have author youtubers when I post a article on YouTube.

I can share it here. A little side note here, not every single group that you join, will let you post on their group, but a lot of them do so. For example, when I joined author youtubers, I can post my youtube articles here that I upload to YouTube and let them know hey, I just uploaded a article. I would love for you guys to check it out if you’re looking for this or that or whatever my topic may be another one here.

When I blog I can share my blog on this blog live on this other one. That’s called share your blog post and I don’t blog family getting noticed blog support group also see like power of thought. I can share it there I can share, and so my con aren’t so many Facebook groups that I had no idea that I could do this. You do this. Furthermore, you can post your books and your promotions on these other groups.

Kindle reading club. You can share it on these free, Kindle books, book marketing, free Kindles book, Kindle publishers when you’re running a promotion on your books. You can post it here and that’s more people that get to know about you and your book and people that are actually interested in either your topic or the kinds of books that you’re talking about or Kindle or whatever it is so yeah. You guys.

I hope that you found this helpful, like I said I blogged for so many years, without getting anything in return, so I didn’t want you guys to miss out on any of these opportunities. I wanted to give you guys a chance to know all the things that I didn’t know and I hope you get right on it. If you’re not doing it, maybe you already have your email list, but you’re not giving anything in returns, and maybe you can give canva a shot and try creating beautiful documents to give to your community.

And maybe if you do have an email list – and you already have a canva website that you use and that you give to you in products that you give back to your email subscribers. Maybe you haven’t signed up for the affiliate program and I definitely recommend that you do that because um, I think, if I’m not mistaken, if the timing is still right. If somebody clicks on your link today and let’s say you were promoting a book with Amazon, if they click on your link for 48 hours, if they go back to Amazon and they’re buy anything at all, it doesn’t even have to be the same book that they Clicked on you will get a commission for it.

Okay, so yes, you guys. That is all I have for you guys today. I hope you enjoyed this article leave me a comment below letting me know if you are going to try any of these things that you that I mentioned here on this article today and remember to subscribe and until next time stay safe.
