Yes, You Can Make Blogging a Career

How-to-Start-a-Blogging-CareerYou’ve probably heard of blogging, especially since you’re reading this post. Blogging has become increasingly popular in recent years and many have become quite successful doing so.

Remember Julie and Julia? It’s a movie that originated from a true life tale of Julie Powell, who set out to blog about her experiences cooking each of Julia Child’s 524 recipes from her book “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” in just 365 days.

Her blog became so popular that she was offered a book and movie deal for her efforts, and she also published her second book. Now I’m not saying that you’re going to be offered movie and book deals when you blog because her success isn’t common, but you can have fun and very possibly make a career blogging.

I’ve put together a six-part series to help you understand what it takes to be a successful blogger, tips on how to connect with your audience – the reader, and ways that you can monetize your blog, the “making it a business” part.

If you are reading this in the middle of the series or if you missed one of the posts you can access them here. Just click the title below. I love to hear from you so if you wish to answer the question at the end of each post, please do – or ask a question of your own and I’ll certainly answer.

  1. I had no idea the movie Julie and Julia was based off an actual blog. I feel a little clueless. But that’s amazing nonetheless. I didn’t really care much for the movie, mainly because I’m not a fan of cooking, but I did like the challenge aspect of the movie. That’s wonderful that her blog was noticed and given a book and movie deal. Now I’m going to look for the blog. Thank you. 🙂

  2. Yay! Right up my alley. Can’t wait to read the whole series Marilyn!

  3. I think the important message with this first post is that Julia sat down and shared her “personal” experiences with an audience, which is quite different than just penning in an article.

    To be successful at blogging, you must share a part of yourself so people understand the personality behind the blog as much as the messages that are shared.

  4. Excellent introduction. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the posts in this series (and maybe getting a movie deal!)
