I have to be honest; I never thought I would be making money blogging at home.
Isn’t that talking junk and showing off on the internet so you can get people’s attention? Just a more personal type of digital socializing. That’s what I used to think. Until I learned that blogging to make money is real.
Check out this amazing article to start blogging in a simple but practical way.
It hasn’t been that long ago that I was involved with money making opportunities online trying to make extra money just to supplement my income. The truth is I was spending a lot of my income trying to do it.
After a lot of time and effort wasted I quit. Then I realized, this is crap. I know people that make it.
I know people that make 5 figure incomes monthly. I know people that make a few hundred and even a few thousand monthly. I also know many that don’t make anything, so I decided to do my due diligence and find out why.
I’ve Tried Other Things Before, What Makes the Next Opportunity Different?
Typically nothing. Let me explain.
My first question is why do they do it? What is behind all those people that come online and join the best sounding opportunity to make money. There are multitudes of reasons for time freedom, retirement, travel, more time with family and on and on but it all boils down to money. End of story.
The promises of success and grandeur catch their attention and here they go.
My second question is why do they fail? Now that they have found an opportunity they go into full force doing what they are told to do. “Promote it”. Failure Arrives quickly for most at this point. A few hundred dollars, or even a few thousand in and they are running away screaming this is a scam. Get me the hell out of here.
They fail because their training and support are either not there, lacking, outdated or just downright wrong. It’s really not their fault. It comes from the top.
So here is my next question. Why would they bring people in and let them fail? It seems to me that they would make more money keeping them. It’s really sad… They already know that only 1 or 2% of the people will ever make any money.
- A quick buck
- It’s all in the numbers
- These companies come and go.
Most are short-lived or just let it roll till it fizzles and are on to the next best thing and all the people follow along with all the newbies looking. It’s Pretty and Shiny and new and they promise you can achieve financial freedom… Yea for themselves.
There Was a Beginning for All the People at the Top
Let’s face it. The people at the top started where everyone starts. Looking for the same thing. They either had the money to build their company and have others do the work for them or they learned how to attract people, they worked very hard, and they made their dreams come true for themselves.
So What Does All This Have to Do with Blogging from Home to Make Money?
It tells you why I work at home blogging to make money and why I do not chase the next best internet scam.

Those people on top started somewhere. I had to learn how to do it, how to build it and how to make it work for me. It didn’t come naturally. The writing does because I write about what I like. But not all the rest.
