Want to make a living simply by writing about your life? Here’s how one pro-blogger does it…
On a sunny day in April, journalist-turned-PR Amber McNaught walked out of her well-paid office job, and started a blog.
Ten years, multiple blogs, 42 million pageviews, one kidney transplant (her husband’s), and a whole lot of mistakes later, that blog is now a full-time business, which means that Amber, who started documenting her life in a green velvet diary when she was 11 years old, now gets paid to continue documenting her life – but on the internet.
(Yes, she still has to pinch herself every morning to make sure she’s not dreaming.)
So, how did she do it? How did she make writing a diary into a full-time job?
You’re about to find out. In ‘My Blogging Secrets’, Amber shares everything she’s learned about blogging, from how to come up with an idea for your blog, to how to persuade people to read it, and – most importantly – how to actually make money from writing about your life.
