Are you new to blogging and confused on what all you need to properly run your blog? I’m going to give you my secret formula I use to run my blog. And guess what?? I spend less than a $100.00 a month to keep my blog up and running!
Now if you’re thinking $100 is a bit much, it’s not. I know bloggers who shell out hundreds a month. Yes some bloggers…. a lot of bloggers probably make more than I do a month, so yea maybe than can afford to spend a shit load of money on everything.
But hey, I’m a Mommypreneur with little mouths to feed, so I like to keep as much dough in the pocketbook as possible.
When I first started my blog, I purchased my domain through BlueHost. I signed up for the 3.95 monthly option. With Bluehost I was also able to get webmail access. I now have a professional email address instead of a gmail address.
Because I didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg on website design, I purchased a WordPress Theme. The one I’m currently using is from another company, but I recommend using BluChic. Why? Because they are mobile responsive and they have themes specifically for female entrepreneurs. Not to mention they are AFFORDABLE.
For my Email Marketing I use ConvertKit. I pay 29.00 a month for my plan. With my plan, I’m able to setup email automations, I get access to landing pages, and signup forms. Right now, you can get a Free Trial, with no commitments.
And of course I use Canva for creating graphics, ebooks and just about anything you can think of.
Have you heard about TailWindApp? Alright so here’s the lowdown on TailWindApp. It’s a social media scheduling system for Pinterest and Instagram. Many bloggers use TailWindApp to schedule their pins, and to join TailWIND Tribes. If you haven’t used it before check it out, here for 30 days FREE.
Alright so let’s tally everything up and see how much exactly you would spend if you used my secret formula.
(I didn’t add in the cost of my WordPress theme because it was a one-time fee.)
Drumroll please….that’s $61.88 a month, or $2.06 a day! That’s nothing compared to the amount of money you can make from blogging.
Go ahead and start your blogging journey, and use my secret formula.
