Ever since I started my career as an online marketer back in early 2013 I have had many of my friends and family members ask me just what exactly it is that I do to earn a living.
I have told them several times that I make money blogging about my hobbies and things that I’m passionate about.
Due to the way they perceive things and their mindset, they didn’t have the slightest clue about what I was talking about and to be quite honest, I didn’t really expect them to understand.
I have been doing a lot of thinking about this here lately and today I’ve decided to spill my guts about this subject and go into detail about how I earn money online doing something I absolutely love.
In the following blog post, I’ll be laying out a step by step blueprint for you guys to follow and show you how to replicate it to create your own success.
What Is Blogging?
Before I get into how to make money blogging about your hobbies, it’s important for you guys to have a firm understanding of what is expected of you as a blogger.
Blogging is nothing more than communicating with other people and sharing your thoughts on a particular topic of interest.
This also consists of helping other people out by answering their questions, providing them with the information they’re looking for on a particular topic, and directing them to a product or service that will provide them with a solution.
Pretty simple right?
There are literally millions upon millions of different things you could blog about and the sky is the limit when it comes to this.
Why not blog about something you enjoy talking about like a hobby or passion of yours?
Personally, for me, I found this approach to be the most effective way to go about this and I have been earning a full time living as a result.
This leads me up to my next question, which is……..
How Will You Make Money From Blogging About Your Hobbies?
This is where things start getting pretty interesting and I’ll be digging deep into how all of this works and showing you proof of how I was able to do this with a few hobbies of mine.
It All Starts With A Simple Google Search
When was the last time you searched for something in Google?
Would you mind if I asked you what you searched for?
Were you looking for a recipe on how to bake lasagna, or perhaps looking for an ingenious and healthier way to bake chicken?
You may have been searching for reviews on the new Samsung Galaxy 8 that just hit the market a couple of months ago.
It doesn’t really matter what you were searching for as this isn’t relevant.
What does matter, and the main point that I’m trying to get across to you guys is that you had some unanswered questions that you were searching for answers to and you were looking for more information on this topic right?
For example, let’s say that you have created a website about smartphones and technology and you have just written a review on the new Samsung Galaxy 8.
When someone searches for “Samsung Galaxy 8 review and you’re listed in the first 10 search results, they will likely click on your review and read what you have to say.
If they like what they’ve read and would like to gain more information and possibly make a purchase, guess what?
You can earn a commission by simply recommending the best place for them to find this phone for the lowest price.
Pretty sweet right?
How I Was Able To Make Money From My Hobbies
Over the past 4 years I have been earning a pretty decent income from blogging about a few hobbies of mine.
For those of you who happen to visit my website on a frequent basis know that when I’m not helping other people avoid scams and showing them how to make money, I’m usually checking out the newest video game or geeking out about the latest 4K TV’s to hit the market.
Due to my vast amount of knowledge about affiliate marketing, I was able to turn both of these passions into money in my bank account.
How were you able to do that Scott?
I created a website on gaming headsets and 4K Televisions.
I then wrote several reviews on some of the top performing models out there and gave my honest opinion on which one would give you the most bang for your buck.
Take A Look At A Few Screenshots That I’ve Captured For You Guys Below Of My Websites In Action!!
Both of these websites have made me several sales and this continues to grow as I continue building them out.
While I’m not able to devote as much time to these websites as I would like, they still earn me a pretty penny and I absolutely love what I do.
How cool is that?
What Are Some Of Your Hobbies Or Interests?
We all have something that we’re passionate about or a hobby of some kind that occupies our time.
Do you show a particular interest in photography?
Do you enjoy traveling, or perhaps you’re a sports nut?
Maybe you’re like me and you’re into technology and electronics.
Whether you’re into fishing or computers, I can assure you that you can turn this hobby into a money making business.
This will take lots of hard work, time, and dedication but I can promise you it’s worth every second that you invest here.
With technology constantly evolving, there are millions of ways for you to earn money online, but affiliate marketing is my #1 way to do this.
How To Put This Into Action & Get All The Tools You Need To Get Started In 1 Place
There are multitudes of different places you can go to learn about affiliate marketing and even places that will give you a free blog/website.
However, due to the vast amount of knowledge that’s required to know in order for you to successfully master this skill, many online gurus tend to be vague and leave out some of the most important information.
Trust me, I have joined just about every program out there that promised to show me the right way to go about this and I found myself more confused and asking more questions than I was before I started.
Go here to create your website, get hosting here, buy your domain names from this company, blah, blah, blah…….
As a newbie to this whole online thing, I found it overwhelming enough to have to learn all of this stuff and having to manage multiple accounts just added to my frustrations.
It wasn’t until I discovered a company called Wealthy Affiliate, that I was able to access all of these tools in 1 place while I learned how to put all of this into action.
Instead of scouring the internet like a madman trying to make sense of all of this and somehow wrap my brain around this concept, I now have an online community of entrepreneurs that I can go to for instant help with any issues or questions that I have.
If this sounds like something you would be interested learning more about but aren’t exactly sure where to start, I would be more than happy to help you out and get you started in the right direction.
Due to my massive amount of knowledge that I’ve gained over the past few years, I would be more than happy to act as your tour guide and take you by the hand and walk you through this entire process.
What I like about WA the most is that provide you with all of tools, training, and help and support all in 1 place and they actually care whether you succeed here or not.
They even offer a Starter Membership that includes the basics you need to get up and running and test drive their system before making any commitments or forking over your hard earned money.
What’s not to love about that?
I really hope this post has helped you guys out and has given you an inside look into how you can make money from a few of your hobbies or interests.
Still confused or have questions for me?
I would love to answer them for you and clear up any confusion you may have in the comments below!!
I look forward to hearing from you guys!!
