When I first got started blogging, I had no clue what I was doing. Even though I was a fan of reading other blogs, I wasn't too sure how to go about starting my own blog.

I did the basics to get my blog started. This included setting up my blog on WordPress, setting up my hosting account with BlueHost, as well as purchasing Genesis and a child theme.

If you are thinking about starting a blog, this tutorial will help you start a blog today. You’ll also get a FREE domain name for a year! I was able to quit my job and blog full time, all within my first year of blogging. I am really glad I took a chance and started a blog! I invested a small amount of money to start my blog using Bluehost, and I made $13,000 in 6 months of blogging. That’s the best return of investment ever! 

I also downloaded a few widgets and set up a new email account. Other than that, I wasn't really too sure what to do next. I was stumbling around on the internet reading anything and everything.

What I was really looking for was guidance.

Enter Abby Lawson and her fabulous eBook, Building A Framework: What I Learned My First Year Of Blogging.

Once I started reading Abby's book, I couldn't put it down. Finally I had a source that answered so many of my questions.

It was tiring scouring the internet, but with Building A Framework, I was able to go through each chapter and simultaneously make the changes to my blog.

Building A Framework basically helped me take the next steps. Much like the title suggests, this ebook guided me through the best widgets to use, how to utilize Pinterest, create a newsletter and all kinds of strategies and tips.

My small blog tripled in size after I read Build A Framework. I also implemented smart strategies, like how to monetize and earn income.

The eBook also covered different ways to monetize my blog, which I found to be incredibly helpful. Abby goes into great detail about how she monetizes her blog, including my favorite method, affiliate income.

I say this all the time, but I love affiliate income! Unlike Google Adsense or similar methods of advertising, affiliate income does not rely on high blog traffic.

My favorite thing about this book was how I was able to save so much time by having all my answers in one place. I would seriously spend hours on the internet trying to figure out one thing, and this book definitely helped me manage my time better.

Let's talk blog numbers

I started getting serious about blogging last fall. As you can see from the photo below, I was really new to blogging. I only had a few hundred page views a month in November! I'm also not embarrassed to admit this – we all have to start somewhere, right?

Once I purchased Abby's book and started implementing her advice, my views started climbing immediately. In less than two months I more than tripled my views.

In March, I nearly tripled my pageviews again. In April, I hit an all time high of over 8,000 page views in 1 month. While this might not be a lot of views to some, it was a record for me!

Clearly, this book had a positive effect for my blog. I don't know where my blog would be today without this book!

So…I am so, so excited to announce that Abby has a new eBook that just debuted! In less than two years, Abby has managed to make over six figures from her blog and once again, she is sharing how she did this.
