You will find tons of articles claiming shortcut techniques to increase traffic on your blog and earn millions from ads.
But is it true?
Can anyone follow those shortcuts and maintain a successful blog?
The answer is no! Maintaining a successful blog is an art, and one has to become an artist to earn bucks.
Before you think of your blog as a money tree, you must have the zeal and enthusiasm of being a passionate content writer. The talent of marketing your blog, designing the posters, and some digital marketing skills should be learned before starting this journey.
Even if you hire the best content writers and spend thousands on paid promotions, your blog will still take time to become popular.
But today, in this article, we will discuss the ways by which you can run a successful blog with minimal money. How much to spend on paid promotions and how many content writers or graphic designers to hire? Let’s find an easy answer to all these questions.
The web might suggest you choose ‘technology,’ ‘politics,’ or ‘business’ as the most searched niche, but you can choose any! Select that niche on which you always wanted to work on and can write about it quickly. E.g., if you ever wanted to start a food blog, then don’t get confused about whether it will have good traffic or not.
Select a niche that you can handle later on in such a way that you don’t go short of ideas in the future. Based on the niche, start hiring content writers and graphic designers. For starting, you can hire freelancers to get your job done efficiently and quickly.
Depending on your budget, decide on whether you will buy your own custom domain name or use a popular platform like WordPress.com. Survey says that the money-making blogs have their custom domain names, and they use BlueHost, HostGator, 1&1 Hosting, etc. domain name providers.
While doing content writing and bringing your blog/website at the top, SEO(Search Engine Optimisation) matters a lot. You must use ‘e.com’ or ‘ r.net’ domain and try to keep the domain short, i.e., less than 15 words.
It’s the biggest mistake rather than a myth that uploading innumerable articles every day will help you grow traffic. A big NO! Ask your content writers and editors to focus more on SEO, keyword quality, and keyword density than writing numerous articles every day.
Follow the strategy followed by your competitors and decide the number of articles to be uploaded each day. Find trending topics and write plagiarism-free content. The articles should be specific and match the niche of your blog.
Social media platforms will bring organic traffic. Through your LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram page, it will make your followers visit your blog. You can take the help of paid promotions as well (paid advertisements on Instagram are advised).
Along with this, write some articles on popular platforms like Medium.com, Scribd.com, Reddit, and Quora. Hook your social media followers with few digital campaigns and regular stories and posts that ultimately force them to visit your blog.
To bring more people to your blog, you can use email marketing services provided by MailChimp or Aweber to send updates about your blog to more than 1000+ people at one time. You can use custom templates to send emails that will attract more people.
Through your blog, you can build an email list by offering free e-books and magazines which require filling up their email id. This way, you can collect a considerable database too!
This initiative by Google speeds up the web page using JS and minified CSS code. It’s more helpful when websites are opened on mobile phones.
Using Google Analytics, one can keep track of keywords, statistics, number of visitors, etc. By doing this, you can change your strategies and find out which topics and keywords are best to use.
If you are using WordPress, don’t forget to use the feature of permalinks. It will suggest you SEO friendly URLs. Permalinks are located within the settings > permalinks section of your WordPress admin page. After that, select the post name option.
Apart from the above technical requirements, one can use freelancing websites to hire content writers and graphic designers. Depending on your initial budget, you can decide their salaries.
Don’t bombard your team with several articles and posters; otherwise, the quality will suffer. As soon as your profit increases, it is your moral responsibility to increase the salary of your team as well. This will ensure long-lasting quality and better team formation.
PPC(Pay Per Click) ads, along with affiliate marketing, can also be tried using your website. All these are some of the best ways to start a successful blog with minimum money.

Welcome, February the month of love, joy, and all that mushy goodness. As women, as mothers, we often become accustomed to focusing on the love we have for others We sometimes to forget to nourish the relationship we have with ourselves. When we are tired, stressed and generally off balance we cannot serve those that we cherish the most. Never forget you deserve alone time, you deserve to be pampered. Your opinions are valued and valuable. You are a goddess. Since this is the month of love how about you shower some extra care and attention on the one that matters the most: YOU!
The relationship you have with yourself is the core for every other connection that you have and will have in your life. This brought the question to mind what does self-love mean to you.? I asked a few of the wonderful and inspiring women that I know and these were their responses. This month this day and every day. Feel the love, spread love and be the love that you desire.
I am a unique creation. I see myself as one human being with a unique DNA that can’t be mixed up or mistaken for anyone else’s.I appreciate myself because of my uniqueness, the shape of my ass, the curves of my body, the light in my eyes when I am happy; are all unique to me. I know that I am beautiful just the way I am –Selena
Self Love to me is something that I am still learning. But part of it would be accepting the wrongs in my life that have happened and learning and growing from it. Not allowing negative energy to affect you and also noticing when unwanted energy is around and not compromising your vibe to accommodate theirs.
I believe it also involves taking time for yourself to refocus and indulge oneself. Doing what you love is also an integral part of self-love. Settling for whatever is there or available is not. I remember this job I had where my co-worker and I were talking about doing things we love and she said the job was her bread and butter so I said you know I don’t want bread and butter what I want are waffles and sausages with a glass of Oj. She watched me like I was crazy. I simply meant I do not ever intend to settle. Overall cultivating peace of mind is genuine self-love – Anonymous
Self-love means putting myself first. My needs. My wants. My happiness. Everything else after -Amanda
Being unpologetically myself and doing what is best for me despite what others may think . Saying no to anything and anyone that disrupts my peace and putting myself first when I need to -Alicia
Loving yourself above all others other than God and always know your worth because you are worthy. Love yourself first before you love someone else but don’t be selfish -Chicora
My idea of self-love is making decisions that make you comfortable and being at peace with whatever you do. There is a sense of freedom associated with it. Happiness is a state of being, it is dynamic, however, if we are comfortable there are more happy moments. This will extend to all parts of my life because I am a work in progress -Nicole
I decided to do a 14-day self -love challenge because I think we all need something to inspire us each and every day. These suggestions are by no means anything new but they serve as a reminder to be kind yourself so you can be kind to others. Do not feel guilty for saying no; for not feeling like it or for indulging because life is meant to be savored and enjoyed. Go ahead spoil yourself in the most simple ways or spectacular ways this and every month . These can be done in any order you like. Sometimes we just need a break and few moments to reset and remember how fabulously divine we truly are.
DAY ONE -Self Love Meditation. If mediation isn’t your thing try some self-love affirmations or a self-love prayer
DAY TWO- Self Love Yoga
DAY THREE -Take a nature walk
DAY FOUR – Take yourself on a date
DAY FIVE – Buy yourself flowers or chocolate
DAY SIX – Look into the mirror admire your beauty and say I LOVE YOU
DAY SEVEN- Make a list of 14 things you love about yourself . Get creative and make this a mini craft project.

DAY ELEVEN -Start a birthday fund so you can splurge on your birthday

This is a reminder to always stop and focus on the good each day. Find something to light your inner fire. This can not be said enough. You above all others deserve love, inner peace and happiness
Share in the comments -what does self -love mean to you and how to do make time in this busy world for yourself?
We often joke that January within itself feels like several months wrapped into one. I do not know what it is if it is the post-holiday blues or the fact that payday seems to take an eternity to come. Today is day 19 and I am pleased to say it does not feel like day 100. I also have not set any solid goals. I guess I am still a procrastinator or just really fond of taking my time 🙂
One thing I have decided is that year will be fabulous. I will take all the chances and say yes to all the things ( the things that make me feel good at least). Today and each day I will give thanks and try to release all of the beliefs, emotions, and connections that no longer serve me. I will be stronger, better and be more empowered today and each day for the rest of 2019.
Do you still have that feeling of newness or is just the same old story to you ? Know this you can begin, refocus, rewrite, reinvent yourself and refresh your point of view at any moment. If you need some motivation to get started on that dream, that plan or wish or to make space for something new here are ten quotes to get your mojo flowing.
This is your reminder that everything will be alright
The signs may say different but there is no need to fight
The process, the present the circumstances may not be ideal
There is never a trial without a lesson, a blessing an opportunity to heal
This is your reminder that everything will be alright
It is just a moment they all pass
There is no need to fight the process going through it will bring you progress
Just wait and see
You may not like it you may not love it but you are exactly where you need to be
Like the dragonfly, the transformation will be inspiring
Stay open to the possibilities, stay grounded
These growing pains mean nothing
You are exactly where you need to be. -Written By Tachi Wiltshire
What are some of your fave quotes about fresh starts? What are some of your goals for this year ?
Hi there Lovelies and welcome to my first entrepreneur feature for 201 9! I admire anyone who has a passion for what they do and I am also a serious product junkie so I knew that this company would be a perfect fit for this feature. I am all about that natural life and I think we should all be conscious of what we put on our bodies. I think we all can agree natural is the way to go. Check out Natural Body Essentials on Instagram and Facebook .
My name is Rea Mclean, I am from Trinidad & Tobago. I’ve always loved creating things with my hands. I’ve always been interested in making candles actually, I would look at videos on Youtube about how it’s done. I could get lost for in it for hours. I then started watching videos on soapmaking and thought it was really cool. I had always wanted to try it but was always nervous somehow. After a few years of just watching videos and making all kinds of excuses, I saw an ad for classes teaching how to make candles and soap and I signed up. I learned so much more than I thought I would, not realizing that it would change my life.
I started selling soaps and candles last year. It first started as a side hustle. Something to do on the side to make some extra money. Living on my own after going through some tough times I had to figure out how to keep afloat. I started to read more and educate myself more about what I was creating. I wanted to do something different not just make soaps but I wanted to make soaps that can really benefit my customers. So reading and testing out the soaps really allowed me to understand how it works.
So here I was making soaps and candles. Now my friends and family always encouraged me but I was always doubtful. So I had to put my doubts aside because I had to believe that God didn’t put me in this world to suffer. Something I started saying is, I refuse to be a victim of poverty. So I started to make more soaps more candles posting pictures online and on WhatsApp. It was slow for a while and probably because I wasn’t pushing myself hard enough. After losing my job I started to push harder. I added lip balms and deodorants to my line as well, and with the help and encouragement of my loved ones I created Natural Body Essentials. Now I must say that I have gotten it wrong at times as well and failure helps you to learn. Always remember to pick yourself up and keep moving forward.
At Natural Body Essential we create soaps, lotions, body butter, lip balms, deodorant, and candles as well.
One of our soap lines is the Unscented Series- these soaps are designed for persons with any skin problems from, psoriasis, eczema, blemishes or sensitive skin. I’m really proud of this because a lot of people have skin problems and are looking for a solution to it; especially here in the West Indies. The products are made from natural ingredients and cured to ensure maximum results. That also goes for the luxury soaps as well. We have a page on Facebook and Instagram which gives an opportunity to interact with customers and people from all over the world.
One of my dreams is to create a product line for hotels worldwide .

Welcome 2019, 365 new chances, new opportunities, experiences, and adventures. 2018 was a blink and you miss it sort of year because I still feel like I am in summer somewhere on the beach listening to Kes singing Hello and pretending he made that song just for me. I have never been one to subscribe to the New year New me mantra; the process of self-improvement and development has never been a wave a magic wand type of thing.
The newness , the fresh start comes when you open your eyes each day; when you give thanks and hopefully navigate whatever challenges, issues or problems that particular day throws at you or NOT.
Let’s be honest some days you just aren’t feeling it we just don’t have it in us to kill it and really who says we have to? We were not created to be constantly seeking, doing, searching or forcing. There is no shame in wanting and needing a break. sometimes your soul absolutely deserves it.
Joy is the key to your life feeling good no matter what year it is -Sarah Prout
It took me quite a few years to grasp this concept. Life will be what it is. Golden, blah, messy what you really need to focus on is how you perceive it. Now I am not going to tell you to be positive all of the time. What I have learned is that you need to find bliss and liveliness even in the broken places.
There will always be a time when you feel like shit, when your energy will be depleted; when you will revel in feeling sorry for yourself ; when you literally may want to set your entire life on fire and watch it burn. Do you think having these moments or thoughts makes you a bad person? They sure as hell do not. There really is nothing sexy or appealing about perfection. Own your energy, revel in your mess. Do the very best with whatever you are given. The world does not need you
New beginnings I love
One of my major issues has always been more thinking than doing. You can analyze a situation to death but if you never take the first step. What are we really doing?
The Moment you accept that imperfect is more beautiful and full of joy than perfect is a good moment-Unknown
This is my tentative plan for the New Year –
Step One – let go of the picture of perfection
Step Two – Never let the circumstances and I repeat ever deter me from achieving my goals.
Step Three – Be grateful for every breath and find satisfaction in every moment.
As you get older you realize that even the shitiest of people and situations all have a grand purpose. Life would not be very
How about thinking about what worked in 2018 and build from that. Work on being more consistent with your actions. Accept that despite your best efforts life does always have a way of screaming plot twist. Fall down, get back up gracefully and keep pushing forward even if you have to crawl. Life is all about movement and evolution. Be patient with yourself. Fab does not become fabulous overnight. We all have to start somewhere; the key is not to forget why you started and keeping on going no matter what.
Here are a fewsimple reminders to help you stay on your path of growth and purpose.
You are the gatekeeper of your thoughts, feelings, and energy. It is easier said than done but do not let the funky energy of others take a hold of your space. I am guilty and we have all been guilty of this at some point. We let the actions and words of others dictate our moods, our thoughts sometimes even our own self -worth. When you find yourself falling into this trap give yourself a big old slap
me :the thoughts and actions of others should never determine my direction. My energy is sacred and I choose to make space for what feels good and right for me .
Recognize your toxic traits . I mean we all have some qualities that can be downright annoying and sometimes self -destructive . Stop trying to bury your issues; as challenging as it can be you need to own those issues get to the root cause of your actions and do your very best not to be a shitty person. Give what you want to receive. At the end of the day, we all want that inner fire to be lit and to be happy. Unless of course, you find solace in misery.
We all have flaws those seen and unseen. Things about ourselves that can cause issues in our daily lives . The key is to work on those bad habits each day. Spend time with yourself. Analyze your relationships, any problems, issues or scenarios that keep occurring. Accept responsibility for your actions. Sometimes pride gets in the way but you have to adult enough to say well I really
Learn to love your body I mean really appreciate it. The little things that we take for granted daily like being able to see, hear, and touch the ones you love.
Love the skin you are in. The lopsided boobs, the crooked nose, the melanin that they think is too rich all of it and I mean all of it makes up the masterpiece that you are. Do what makes your body feel good. Nourish it. Savor it. We are all so busy but really what are we busy doing? Are we doing the things that matter? Like taking care of ourselves and out=r own needs and not belittling our significance? Looks really only can get you that far because no one really wants to hand with a pretty face if it comes with a vexatious personality.
Don’t just focus on the outer beauty you have to ingest some soul food as well. I mean a perky butt does not hurt but a perky spirit is where it is at.
It is time to say yes to yourself, with no apologies to anyone. Be in the
Let me be honest forgiveness is my least fave f-word or it used to be. Being unforgiving honestly is not a pretty picture. Anger, frustration, and bitterness are the definite end result. Remember the last time you really got upset? I mean fuming ? I myself rarely get angry because it is an emotion I feel in my soul. I usually act and then think later.
At the moment when we feel wronged or offended; the ego just screams strike back, do them like they did you. Retaliate; that is the way to go. I have been petty. I have held grudges. I have been consumed with getting revenge. I have been the hell hath no fury chick. Where do you think it got me?
Tired, depleted, angry and bordering on obsessed. You harm no one but yourself when you seek to right the ones that did you wrong . You can not heal pain by inflicting hurt, Nothing healthy can be achieved from seeking revenge. It may bring a temporary moment of satisfaction but ultimately you will have to deal with the underlying issues. You have to find ways to navigate through the waves of hurt, betrayal and intense disappointment.
We all have had someone who has done us
It is indeed extremely difficult not to take the actions of others personally but ultimately what they do is their
Yesterday is heavy . Put it down
Every day make a conscious effort to let go of anything that makes you frown
Your soul is tired give her a rest
You are far from perfect but you did your best
Pain is never healthy to carry around
It will break your spirit leave you shattered
The past is heavy put it down
Don’t beat yourself up over should haves and could haves
You did your best
Grow through what you go through
No situation is ever permanent
This is just a test
The messes of today will lead to the triumphs of tomorrow . The past is not yours to carry . Lighten your load . Set yourself free .
Yesterday is heavy . Put it down .
This really is not a New Year’s post this is a fresh start
Wishing you nothing but love and
