Hello and happy new year! I’ve taken a bit of a break from The Bloglancer over Christmas but now I’m back, ready to inspire you for blogging in 2018! One of my biggest revelations in 2017 was learning about ‘passive income’; something I’d thought as very American and pushy in the past! But in 2017, I decided to release my first ebook: a pitching toolkit for bloggers wanting to work with brands, and couldn’t believe how simple it was!
As someone who had previously had my own book published in print with a publisher, I loved being able to create my own project on my own terms- and, this time, get the vast majority of the revenue too! But what I loved most is the fact that once you’ve written the product, you can earn money from it each day, without having to do anything at all! I was pretty addicted to seeing a sale come in when I’d not even gotten out of my pyjamas yet (newsflash-I’m publishing this and still in my pyjamas!) Somehow that money (even if it was just a single sale) seemed far more exciting than the usual work I’m paid for.
But I don’t think I did anything revolutionary-I just decided to get out there and create a product! So today I wanted to share my tips on helping you do the same. A product that you’ll need to spend a bit of time creating, but you’ll be able to make money from days, weeks, months and even years after putting the work in!
