002: Is Blogging Dead? 9 Reasons to Start a Blog TODAY!


Fake News Alert!

Blogging is dead.

I know what you’re thinking… Wait, are blogs still a thing? Do people still read blogs? Is blogging worth it? How do I make money blogging? Are blogs dead?

I know some “experts” out there are claiming nobody reads blogs anymore, or others who admit they’ve never made a dime from their blog. But don’t let those people who couldn’t figure it out make you believe that you can’t either.

I am living proof you can make GOOD MONEY blogging! And the only thing I have that you don’t is a proven system!

You may think blogging is oversaturated, or you’ll never be successful if you start today. 

None of that is true. 

Whether you’re a beginner, you already have a business, or you simply want to make money online, today I’m gonna prove why blogging isn’t dead, and why it’s still relevant, necessary, and a great idea! 

I’m giving you all the inspiration you need to take the plunge. 

Here’s what I know is True:

I started my blog in 2015 – and only four years into this, over 2.5 million unique visitors have already read my content, over 70,000 people have signed up for my email list – and I made nearly $200,000 from my blog in 2019 alone. 

Another truth bomb:

One of the best things about blogging is you’re not trading time for dollars. I still earn thousands of dollars a month from a blog post I wrote three years ago. 

This is one of the coolest things about blogging, it’s PASSIVE. You do it once and then you can continue reaping the benefits for years to come.

Is Blogging Dead?

Now, get this…

When you know where to start, you will feel empowered and confident. You’ll stop wasting time and money. You’ll feel less overwhelmed and stressed. And you’ll get more results and satisfaction!

This isn’t some pipe dream or made-up reality. It is my real life and it can be yours, too. So if you’re ready to start your blog, there is no better time than – TODAY!

If I can do this – so can YOU!
