When I first started my blog Let’s Reach Success, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, how to get people on it, or in what ways I could monetize it.

Some of the mistakes I made over the past 5 years include:

  • I started with a different domain name;
  • I didn’t have a strategy and goals in the beginning;
  • It took me 2 years to switch from wordpress.com to wordpress.org and have a self-hosted site;
  • I was stuck with the wrong hosting provider for 2 more years until I found a company that truly cares about its users and is built for professional WordPress sites (which immediately helped my blog perform better);
  • My content wasn’t long or informative enough;
  • I was afraid to call myself a ‘blogger’ and even try to make a living from my blog;
  • I didn’t show my personality in my blog posts and was terrified of sharing my life story;
  • I started creating products that interest me instead of asking myself what the reader wants to learn more about;
  • My blog was designed poorly;
  • I wasn’t using analytics for a long time so I had no idea about the metrics of my blog.

And so on…

Fast Forward to Now…

Now Let’s Reach Success is my brand, I’m the person behind it and I openly share my story, mistakes and challenges when building an online business and improving myself, the actual numbers of what I earn and spend each month related to blogging, and much more.

Let’s Reach Success gets half a million visitors each year, is approached by sponsors all the time and earns me thousands of dollars each month thanks to different monetization strategies I’ve implemented over the last 2 years.

There are 2000 articles in its archives and new content is being published DAILY. It’s turned into a resource informing and inspiring people from all over the world.

There’s more to that. This income has allowed me to leave the 9 to 5, travel to Asia, leave my home country and start a whole new life in my dream destination (Amsterdam, the Netherlands).

I’m convinced blogging can do the same for you!

I started making money as a freelance writer and this blog was just a side hustle for me. Now, it’s the foundation of my brand and business and I can’t wait to see more of its earning potential.

Meanwhile, I want to save you years of making blogging mistakes…
