Episode 23: 8 Steps For Taking Your Blog From Hobby To Business


Want to make the switch from being a hobby blogger to a professional but don’t know how? Or have started this journey but keep getting stuck or disheartened?

Today, I talk about the steps required to become a professional blogger. This is what you should do now to make the switch from having a blog that’s something you do in your spare time to something that gives you freedom and flexibility to live a better life.

Making this transition is the biggest problem I hear over and over again from members of the DNW community. They’ve been blogging for awhile and they don’t know how to start making money, how to start accelerating page views and, basically, how to have the success they see people like me having with blogging.

The good news is that it really doesn’t have to be stressful and overwhelming to become a professional blogger. It’s about being smart, taking it step by step and being really clear on what you want to achieve and how.

This episode is for you if you want to transition to being a professional blogger or you’re already trying but getting stuck.

Learn the 8 steps I recommend you take to take your blog from a hobby to a business.
