How to Travel the world earning Blogging -2020
Do you want to make money online specifically blogging or maybe even vlogging or why not both? If you do — you’re not alone. It's 2020 I mean I am not reinventing this idea but more and more people are finding that blogging and vlogging can be a profitable business. A life-changing business.
Imagine waking up on a sunny resort or in a little cafe in Bali sipping Coffee and just expressing your thoughts and feelings creatively for others to enjoy. Doesn't that sound like the goal? Well for me that is with a twist of making some pretty good money on top.
Can anyone make money Blogging?
I know what you are thinking can I really make money blogging or vlogging? This really is a two-sided answer YES and No. I’d say anyone can make money blogging or vlogging but it requires creative skill and of course consistency and discipline. Blogging or Vlogging it cannot be all about the money that will follow after you help enough people get what they want you'll get what you want. You have to be able to make content that is interesting enough for readers to want to come back again. Whether that’s giving fashion advice or blogging about your daily life is completely up to you. Ideally, it would be something you enjoy right otherwise it could feel like a piece of homework from school that continues to get put off or rushed last minute.
To create a successful blog its relly about engaging the audience and building a relationship with your readers. If you aren’t able to catch any readers for your blog, that means no traffic and no money to be made. It might be back to the drawing board to determine if this is the right topic for you.
But if can you keep your visitors coming back to your blog more than once, then you’ve got an opportunity for monetizing your traffic.
I’d like to put it out there, there are many things a successful blogger needs but here are 3 to begin with which should help you build a foundation for bigger and better things.
1 — Create excellent content
I know the first one is a little obvious but also crucial to your success.
Once you have a blog, you must add high-quality content. On a blog, this content comes in the form of blog posts. Your blog posts have to captivate an audience. In order to make money, you have to have visitors, but in order to have visitors, you must have content worthwhile to visit.
I remember one of my best friends said to me, don't give up on youtube or blogging just put out at least 33 posts and be consistent. I urge you to do the same. It is easy to get excited and write one or maybe two blogs but you have to keep getting up and putting in the work.
2 — Build and promote your brand
While you create your content, I found that reaching out to other creators and other people with similar interests is a great way to build sincere, no-strings-attached relationships with others. This can be a fantastic way to get some traction in the early days when no one knows you exist.
If no one knows you exist, it’s unlikely you’ll get many if any visitors. People won’t naturally find you if you don’t put yourself out there. Once you have some followers the best spread is word of mouth and if you are producing good and consistent content those people and their friends and their friends will keep coming back.
One thing I have enjoyed doing is joining groups on Facebook. Taking with like-minded people and sharing my content through these channels. It really works!
3 — Choose and implement streams of income
Developing income stream now this might be the first point on your list. I know it was for me … But this is the last key point. Many people want to focus only on this point, but without the other three, it won’t work. Trust me on this. It takes time to build something great and also something that makes you enough money to buy your freedom back.
Remember that everything is constantly changing but the skills you will develop from venturing out of your comfort zone and into the digital realm will be worth it and follow you into other ventures. You see, successful bloggers are constantly exploring new ways to make money. The key to making good money as a blogger is to have multiple streams of income. Even small trickles of money coming from various places over time can really add up.

As a blogger, you can leverage these skills and following to jump into other ventures and launch other projects that bring in income, such as ebooks, books, speaking, other products, etc.
The bottom line is, making money as a blogger is possible and actually very straightforward. I hope you use these 3 ideas to help start your blogging career or online side hustle. Just remember to keep consistent and never give up.
