3 Things You Need to Be a Successful Blogger
Something to Say
If there is a topic you’re passionate about – literally any topic under the sun – you can start a blog.
And don’t worry about being an “expert” either. Your perspective is valid whether you’ve put in 10,000 hours and reached mastery or you’re just starting out.
Willingness to Learn
As a teacher, you are used to being the one people go to with questions. As a student, you need to be okay with asking questions and not knowing all the answers. You need to fall and get back up, just like you tell your students to do.
Bonus: Putting yourself in the position of a student again will help you understand the kids in your classroom even better.
A Trusted Guide and A Proven Process
There’s no need to do this on your own. I made plenty of mistakes in my 10 years of blogging, and I created this course so you don’t have to repeat them. I know what you need to do, and I understand teacher life – because I am one – which makes this program a perfect fit for educators.
You don’t have time for trial and error. You need a clearly defined curriculum, a proven system, and a mentor who’s been where you are now.
Hey Teach, I’m Stacey!
Today I’m a blogging mentor for educators who are ready to take control of your financial future by making passive income through blogging. I work with teachers from all over the world who are broke and burnt out, to help them make more money, follow their passions, and explore career options.
My blog changed my life in ways I never thought possible. In the first month, I made $2.11. Not much, to be sure. But it was enough to let me see the possibilities, boost my confidence, and expose me to a whole new world of people and opportunities.
Along the way I discovered that a side hustle can serve as both a distraction from, and a complement to teaching. Having another outlet and a way to turn off my teacher brain allowed me to enter my classroom refreshed and ready to go. The learning I was doing to build my business made me a more creative and empathetic teacher. And let’s be honest, making money is fun!
Before you can take the financial reigns of your own life, you must decide that want more, and that you are determined to get it.
