    4 Common Ways Bloggers Make Money + How You Can Too

    One of the questions I get most is, “How do bloggers make money?” So I’ll be addressing that today. Blogging can be a great way to earn an income; however, monetizing isn’t as easy as it seems. Before I kick this post off, I want to caution that there’s a lot of work involved. I started blogging in 2012 and it wasn’t until July 2016 that I took my hobby full-time. It’s important to remember that what works for one person may not necessarily work for you, and everyone’s timeline looks different. If you’re looking to monetize your blog, I’ll be addressing four ways bloggers make money along with some practical nuggets on how you can too. The various methods listed below are great starting points for everyone no matter where you’re at in your career.

    3 Lessons from My Experience as a Female Entrepreneur

    This post is a compensated collaboration with QVC. As always, all opinions are my own.

    With International Women’s Day here, I wanted to open up about my journey to blogging full-time and share some important lessons from my experience as a female entrepreneur. This is a topic I’m extremely passionate about because I believe that one’s personal journey and experiences can help and guide others to find success.

Plus I’ll be sharing my picks from their female-made beauty brands that share the same #dreamdaredo empowerment that International Women’s Day embodies.

    My Clean Eating Grocery List | Lessons From Whole30

    This is a bit of a different post for me, BUT like I said in my resolutions post, I want to provide you guys with more content of value this year. One of the priorities on my list is to get more REAL about my daily life and a look at my normal routine. So why not include a peek into my fridge and my newly adopted clean eating grocery list?

    I don’t often post about my diet – this is something that I think is so private and personal for a lot of people. The last thing I want to do is make you feel like what you’re eating is WRONG. I think it’s important for everyone to listen to their bodies when it comes to making informed food decisions.

    I have a sensitive stomach and several food allergies (gluten and dairy specifically) which is why I chose to start the year by adopting clean eating habits. The months of November and December had me eating SO poorly and making the worst food choices for my system. I was tired, unmotivated, unproductive – walking around in basically a fog. Bad food decisions were impacting me in BIG ways.

    In today’s post, I’m outlining easy food swaps that I made in our fridge, my clean eating grocery list, and how it’s changed the way I feel!

    Ps. See my first juice cleanse review here.
