Ditch the Boss for a Fun, Money-Making Blog

Most folks dream of ditching the boss…enjoying more freedom in life…and not being ruled by the clock.

They want the freedom to travel…to take a lazy lunch on a hillside…to savor fine wine and fresh olives in an outdoor café…to spend weeks exploring warm, white-sand beaches.

If this is you, too, then blogging is likely the best-fit income opportunity for you. This is, hands down, one of the most fun ways to earn from your travels. Whether you’re a foodie, a culture fiend, or architecture fan…traveling solo, taking your kids along, or reinventing retirement on the road…your adventures are the perfect fodder for a money-making blog.

You don’t need to be Ernest Hemingway or J.K. Rowling. Folks out there, who share your passions and interests, want to read about your experiences—good, bad, funny, inspirational, or practical—if it’s real life, anything goes.

Betsi Hill was at a loose end when she retired from the administrative and financial field. So, she decided to combine writing, which she had always loved, with travel—and started her own travel blog. “Already it’s beginning to open doors I never imagined,” says Betsi. “In Canada, I was the guest of Québec City Tourism. I’ve also been to Florida, Branson, Jamaica, St. Simons Island, Georgia, and Seattle, Washington.”

You can earn a nice income as a blogger. But when I talk to the bloggers I know, most tell me what they love are the opportunities that you don’t usually get with any other kind of “work”—the freedom, flexibility, and fun.

Paula Pant first saw her income top $10,000 per month in the fall of 2012, and it’s remained strong ever since. But it’s not about the money for Paula. “I enjoy a travel-as-I please, report-to-no-one life,” she says. “My ‘work’ lets me slip away for 10 days in Aruba to sink my toes in the sand…or spend three whole weeks in Paris to wander its enchanting streets. And I can hop between cities like New Orleans, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Denver, and Chicago at the drop of a hat.”

Your actual income comes from ads on your blog, and from sponsored posts and reviews of products and gear that you love. And you’ll get some great benefits on top of that. Betsi writes mostly about travel, so she gets free trips in exchange for her writing about them on her blog. But whatever it is you like—food, fashion, fun—you can blog about it and enjoy great benefits like free meals, hotel stays, and products.
