Hello everyone! As an avid programmer and blogger, I am excited to share my incredible journey with you. It all started back in 2006 when I decided to build my own website. However, my lack of knowledge at the time led to failure. But I didn’t let that stop me.
In 2008, I jumped back into blogging, this time focusing on a niche close to my heart – programming. I shared all my source code for free, and with dedication and hard work, I turned my passion into a lucrative online venture.
The Early Struggles and Slow Progress
Initially, my earnings were humble, ranging from $300 to $1000 per month. However, I was determined to make my mark in the blogging world. In 2011, I ventured into creating a news website, diligently adding fresh content daily.
While the traffic was slow to pick up, I persisted, driven by the belief that consistency is the key to success.
Gradual Growth and Diversification
Over the years, my revenue started to soar, sometimes reaching up to $60,000 per month, thanks to the combined earnings from all my websites.
I also experimented with various niches, including viral content sites during the Facebook golden era of organic traffic (2012-2014). However, the changing algorithms brought a decline in Facebook traffic in 2015, affecting revenue. Nevertheless, organic traffic from search engines helped sustain my income.
Expanding the Business and Hiring Help
As my blogging business grew, I realized the need for additional support. I hired writers and fellow programmers, creating a team that could contribute to the success of the websites.
This move allowed me to focus on generating fresh and engaging content while ensuring the technical aspects were handled efficiently.
Challenges and Resilience
Like any business, I faced challenges. Economic downturns had an impact on my revenue, but I never lost hope.
Even during tough times, I managed to maintain an impressive $20,000 monthly income. I firmly believed that after the recession, my revenue would bounce back stronger than ever.
The Importance of Consistency
Throughout my journey, I learned that consistency is the ultimate secret to success in the blogging world, or any career for that matter.
By staying dedicated to what you’re passionate about, you can overcome obstacles and achieve great heights.
Sharing the Real Picture
In this blogging venture, I strive to be transparent and honest with my audience. That’s why I share my revenue through videos, offering real-time insights into my earnings.
I find that videos are more reliable than static images and help dispel any doubts about the authenticity of my success.
Affiliate Marketing and Learning Opportunities
While I have had significant success with affiliate marketing, I admit that it hasn’t always been smooth sailing. Some products are challenging to promote, especially when companies restrict advertising on platforms like Google Ads.
However, the potential for substantial earnings is undeniable, as I once earned over $30,000 in just two months from promoting Udemy.
My journey from a failed website builder to a successful blogger has been one of persistence, learning, and adaptation.
Through consistent effort and dedication, I turned my passion for programming into a flourishing online business. My goal is to inspire aspiring bloggers and vloggers to pursue their dreams relentlessly and overcome obstacles on their path to success.
So stay tuned as I continue sharing my experiences, revenue, and valuable insights in the hope of empowering others to embark on their own remarkable journeys. See you in the next article!
