I love Beginner Blogging.
Everything about it feels right to me. I get to provide an awesome service at no charge. I get to see people start with nothing and build blogs they love. Even the domain name beginnerblogging.net was available (I couldn’t believe that).
Furthermore, the scope is huge. I don’t just want to stop at helping people set up their sites; I want to empower them to grow their blog into something they consider truly meaningful.
But to be able to pour the necessary time and energy into making Beginner Blogging what it should be, the site needs to provide a return on my investment. In August it made $1,700, but that was the honeymoon period (i.e. when I was able to best leverage the existing Leaving Work Behind audience). If I want to sustain and build upon that kind of return, I’ve got work to do.
With the above in mind, in this post I want to introduce a number of ideas I have for building Beginner Blogging into a six figure blog.
