SHOW NOTES: Episode 10
Hey there! On today’s episode, we are chatting with Chelsea Cole from the blog, A Duck’s Oven. We chat about various topics including income streams as a blogger. This episode is packed with such helpful information and inspiration. Listening to Chelsea’s journey to becoming a full-time blogger may be just what you need to hear.
We talk with Chelsea about niching down and how it can be scary at first but how helpful it is to niche down. Blogging is so much about helping others so when you have someone asking you about something several times, it is so nice to create a blog or a product that can help them.
Chelsea shares with us her 7-8 income streams and how diversified they all are. From creating products to ad networks to blog traffic, there are so many different ways that bloggers can make money and Chelsea reminds us of that. Chelsea shares how she thinks that 3 income streams is a good place to be in when starting out.
We chat about how it’s ok to have a balance between serving others and also getting paid for it. Chelsea also shares some advice about how bloggers often will sit down and brainstorm ways to help others where it’s really helpful to create a product after people are asking you about it. You know that it is something that others are wanting and know that there is a demand for it when you do it that way.
We also chat about where to focus your time and energy as a blogger and how Chelsea evaluates what her previous year looked like to know where to put her time and energy.
