This past weekend I spoke at The Killer Tribes Conference, and while I was there I had the chance to meet up with some friends from the 9Thumbs podcast and record an episode with them. Yes, the banana of self-control is pointed at my head. My fellow podcasters are Joy from Joy in This Journey, Jason Boyett, and Sharideth from A Woman’s Guide to Women: A Blog for Men While 9Thumbs is usually more broadly focused on pop culture, we decided to focus on blogging since we were convened at a blogging conference. Occasionally I have people ask me about how they can start blogging, or make money blogging, and hopefully this episode can shed some light on strategies for monetizing and growing a blog. Spoiler alert: it’s a lot of work.
