Looking for extra income?
Here’s how I made over $40,000 blogging part-time last month…
And over $500,000 since starting this blog!
4 years ago, I started a blog/website to test if a stay-at-home mom could make money online “blogging”. I put blogging in quotes because blogging is totally different than what I used to think of it.
The awesome part about this particular side business (besides the fact it makes over full-time income with part-time hours) is that you’re creating PASSIVE income and can be done from ANYWHERE.
This year I’ve made over $260,000 so far. This month alone was over $40,000.
I’m hosting a (free) online webinar all about how to start a blogging side business (no tech knowledge required)

BLOG INCOME SUMMARY:
I think it’s fun to see the progress all in one place—so here is how much I’ve made since I first started the blog. You can even grow your income faster than I did!
Started a Blog…
I started The Realistic Mama blog in February of 2014.
In 2014, I made $10,072 blogging part-time.
2015 Total Income: $79,511 blogging part-time.

After traveling and living in an RV for 8 months, we finally settled back down in coastal North Carolina. Living near the beach had always been a dream of ours and blogging allows us to work from anywhere.

$3 a month is minuscule compared to how much you can make blogging. In fact, a year and a half after I started my blog, my blog was making enough my husband was able to quit his full time job! The blog is now our full-time income with part-time flexible hours. We’re also able to work from anywhere, we even took a 8 month RV adventure all over the United States and worked while we were on the road!
