Inside the Mind of a Blogging Professional


Article by Wendy McCance

Have you ever wished that you could get inside the mind of a successful blogging professional? Wouldn’t it be great to read articles detailing the road that got that blogger from a simple blog to a blog that makes good money?  This is what I personally have always hoped to find as I was building my own blog and implementing more ways to drive traffic.

My search for a blog of that nature never fully reflected what I was looking for.  It got exhausting reading what sounded like good articles only to find a pitch to join a class or buy the blogger’s book.  Nothing against those bloggers, they have to make a living.  If they are finding success by using those methods, all the more power to them.

Don’t get me wrong, I have found some great pieces of advice along the way.  Sadly, most blogs that felt like they held promise began to disappoint as newsletters would fall into my email inbox with nothing more than several pitches inside.  I got frustrated by all of the advertisement with little if any good reading material.

In the wake of my frustration, it occurred to me that I would like to do some of the things I felt were lacking in many profitable blogs these days.  I want to give away information for free.  I know in the past that I have done just that with information on how to find and make money from product reviews sites, how to find jobs as a writer and writing about the best plugins I have found for my blog.

I would like to take you inside my mind and allow you to see what I have done to make money and how I did it.  The web is an unlimited place for making money and I feel, why not share the wealth with others?  There is enough room for all of us to make a living from a blog.

I am thinking of doing a series where I tear apart the different components of my blog and why I chose to implement those ideas.  I will tell you what has worked and what hasn’t.  You will learn what has made me the most money and the least.

If you are interested in reading these type of articles, please let me know and I will start posting.  If you have a particular question or subject matter you wish I would target, please let me know that as well and I will see if I can address it in a post.

I have been so fortunate to have such incredible readers.  I would like to return the love and help you out as well.

  1. Wendy I would love to understand more of what you have learned through the different aspects of your blog. I value all your own research and willingness to share with others. I look forward to reading more.

  2. I know I haven’t commented much these days. I’ve gone from working 12 hours a week to 30, from home with my kids home for summer! It’s been crazy! However, I am always reading your posts for one reason only: you stay consistent. Your purpose and content have never waivered. I, like you, have been disheartened and cancelled many subscriptions to blogs that are constantly sending me product reviews. If I am looking for something specific, I will research it myself. Reading about products that I will never use takes up time I just don’t have anymore, and frankly never did. Your blog, however, has continued to educate, inform and entertain. I like your variety and your willingness to share your experiences as a wife, mom and blogger.

    • Thanks so much Vicky, you made my day. I do have to admit that even my blog has the occasional product review. I promise I will never just turn into a straight-up product review site though. Hope you get a break soon and maybe even a nap, or a spa day. :)

  3. Wendy, I always enjoy reading your posts. I have found some useful material here. I would love to read about what you did to become successful on your blog site, or what you tried that did not work.

    • Thanks Beverly. I want to basically rip apart the entire blog. Talk about the different pages and widgets on the sidebar. Hopefully, the articles will be helpful to anyone considering the options I put on this site.
