I like to share the successful blogger stories I stumble upon, one - for my own motivation, and to inspire other bloggers to keep working hard and to look towards the goal.
Today I want to tell you about a blog that was started about 5 years ago by Tyler King and his mother Monica Matheny called The Yummy Life. This is just a regular food blog that you would visit while searching for a recipe or an idea for what to make for dinner. When on the website, you would not know that this blog makes enough residual income for Monica that she could live on for ever. It makes over $5000 per month, after expenses. It is a nice income that would free someone up to do all the things they ever wanted to do.
Think about this... this blog is not that old, only 5+ years old and already making bank. I must point out that Food is a great topic to be in as everybody will always be interested in eating something yummy.
As Tyler tells, the point at which the blog started getting lots of traffic was when Monica's post made it into Pinterest and exploded there, driving lots and lots of traffic to the blog.
It's not a science but it is important to remember that the most important thing you can do for your blog is create content that others will love and will want to share with their friends. It should be sooo good that one can't help it but have to share it with their friends.
Pour your heart into each post and make it the best you can possibly make it, and it will pay off, literally... with money pouring out of it.
