Businesses of all kinds start blogging as a way to build up a long-term audience. But the reverse is also happening, with more and more bloggers starting businesses as an extension of their blog. And it makes sense.
One of the biggest challenges new businesses face is building an audience for their products. New bloggers, on the other hand, often work backward: building an audience first by consistently putting out good content, then exploring ways to monetize their traffic.
Starting a blog is easy if you just want to have a side hustle. But if you’re thinking about creative ways to make money as a blogger, you’ll need to be strategic about how you set your blog up for success.
