I discuss in this blog about saving money and investing in dividend growth stocks. I talk about financial freedom and publicly share my financial goals and my net worth. And encourage you (readers) to star your own financial journey, secure your financial future and to achieve your financial freedom.
If you want to invest in dividend paying stocks, you will need a decent amount of money to start with.
And you would need extra money every month to buy more stocks to get more dividend income.
But everyone’s financial situation is different. You may have just graduated from college/university, and looking for job. You have a big family to take care and hard to save a penny. You just bought a big house and having hard time to meet your financial needs. Or you are having a hard time to land in a decent job.
Every one of your financial situation is different. You may need extra income to kick start or accelerate your process.
How to make extra money?
So many ways
There are so many ways to make extra income after work and weekend – a part-time job, photography business, tutorials, etc. One of the main disadvantages of this type of income is that you have to show up in-person to get your pay. You will have less time to spend with your loved one or family or things that you love to do in your life.
Wait..don’t lose your hope.
We all are truly blessed that we now live in the most exciting time in human history. Yes, I am talking about technologies, especially INTERNET.
Internet has created hundreds of billionaires and thousands of millionaires in last few years. You might have heard of this before, and many of you might have ignored it because you are thinking this is not for you.
May be you don’t want to make billion or million dollars, or you don’t want to create another Facebook or Twitter, or you don’t want to burn-out your life.
But, for sure you want to make a decent side income while doing something interesting.
It is absolutely possible. You could make few hundred dollars or few thousand dollars every month by sharing your knowledge, skills or ideas in your own website/blog.
You could do something like what I am doing on this blog. You don’t have to discuss about finance or your investments. You could discuss anything that you are passion about.
It could be about cooking or recipes, health, fitness, beauty, fashion, pets, house decorations, garden, travels, etc.
There are thousands of things you could share with this amazing internet world. There are millions of people looking to know about it.
Many of you are already doing this in your Facebook and other social media sites with limited number of audience (friends & relatives), but you could make these things available for wider audience through your own blog and earn extra income.
In these days, you don’t need to be a technical expert or you don’t need a big investment to start your own website.
Even you don’t need to be an expert writer.
You could start blogging today with Bluehost as long as you know how to write something you are interested, and with a little investment of less than $100 per year for the web hosting.
I will show you how.
First, you must understand that every one of you has a unique skill, or you have something to say for this world. You have something in your mind you love to talk with your friends (but sometimes they don’t want to listen because their interest is different – which means they have different passion).
For example, I love to talk about finance, dividend investing and wealth building. I want to inspire people around me to start thinking about their financial freedom. But, my close friends have different interests.
One of my friends loves to talk about cars, other one loves to discuss about fitness and another one passions about real-estate investing. We all have different passions, and we all have our own blogs, and are doing well in our fields.
I started this blog two years ago discuss and track about my financial activities, share my knowledge and inspire readers to start their own journey. I want to help people to achieve their financial freedom. I want inspire people by sharing success stories. I want to learn more about investing from other like-minded audiences.
And, I am getting reward as well for doing this. This tiny blog makes around $200 every month from advertisements and affiliate partnerships (as of September 2016).
$200 per month may looks very small, but it is much better than doing nothing. I just spend less than $100 per year for web hosting at Bluehost, and making over $2400 per year while doing something give me some sort of sanctification.
Now, I will have around $2400 per year to invest in dividend paying stocks. The investment could produce another $100 pure passive dividend income every year, whether this site is running or not. Can you see my point?
Also, the blog readership is growing every month, along with blog income.
It is just a small success, and I just wanted to share with you so you could start something in your field and make extra income while helping other people who are looking for the information you share.
As you know, I don’t spend much time for blogging. I just make two or three posts every month.
And, the target population for financial related website is very low, compare to other sectors like fashion, entertainment, etc.
Still, I could produce a decent income from it.
You could make lot of money if have the passion in other popular sectors.
There are so many bloggers making seven figures income by helping their readers and adding value to their life. All they do is simply sharing their knowledge, skills and experiences with their audience for free, and getting rewards from advertisements and commission from affiliates like.
Some bloggers have created products like eBooks, online courses, etc and charge small fee to share their work.
You could do that too. Again, there are millions of people around this world looking for information every day. You could make the different in their life by sharing your ideas with them.
But you must understand it takes time to get noticed by world. This blog took almost 2 years to get around 10 000 monthly readers.
Just focus on add value to other people – help your readers and inspire them. For sure they will reward you back somehow by purchasing the products or services you recommend or sharing your website with their friends & relatives and bring more readers for you.
Even if you could help or inspire one person, it is really a huge success for you. I’m telling you, you will be rewarded one day for that- direct or indirect way.
Another beauty of blogging income is that it will keep making you money whether you continue to create new post or not as long as it is live and accessible by your readers.
Some of you may think that there are so many popular websites out there, so you can’t compete with them. If you are thinking like that, please understand it is not about competitions or beating other bloggers.
It is about sharing your ideas and skills. Other like-minded bloggers will help you, not beat you down. It is the beauty of bloggers community.
You are going to writing about you, your ideas and unique skills. There are millions or billions of people want to know or learn from you.
Just help them to get succeeded in their life!
Also, you should understand that this post will be reading by 1000s of people. Only 5 to 10 people will take action. So you could be one of those 10 people.
If you decide to start your own website, I will definitely help you. I will give you step-by step guide to kick start, install a WordPress and make your first post.
Personally I use Bluehost. It is one of the best web-hosting services available to-date. They provide exceptional service for affordable price.
Currently, Bluehost has a very special promotion offer of $3.45 per month with free domain name. It is 43% lower than their regular price. If you are one of those 10 people and if you don’t have your own website, please take this special offer and start your website today!
It costs less than $50 per year, but the rewards have no limit.
I will also provide more details later about advertisements and other online income ideas in this website.
Thank you for reading and wish you all the best your successes!
