The start of my blogging story

I will start with my story and why I became a blogger. I was a Realtor for 15 years starting in 2004 and loved how I was able to help people find or sell a home. I developed many long-term relationships with the people I met along the way.

I went through many market changes starting in the mid-2000s when the market was booming, then through the market crash and foreclosure/short sale recovery era, back to a seller’s market. One day while I was searching on the internet, I saw a group, “Start A Blogging Business on Facebook” that I joined and saw this course about how to  “Start A Money Making Blog” for FREE.

What did I have to lose, as it had my interest, and so I clicked on it and ended up signing up as I had always thought of becoming a blogger? The instructors who taught the course were Pete and Heather Reese.

I loved the course as Pete and Heather made learning the course interesting and easy to follow. I looked forward to the next day and the assignments we had to complete before moving on to the following day.

Before I knew it the course was done, and they said to create at least 20 posts before you launch your blog. I never considered myself a writer, but all a sudden all these ideas were swimming in my head.

I chose personal development as my niche, as I had so many personal experiences and stories to share. Within a few days, almost non-stop I had my 20 posts and while feeling anxious I was ready to launch and go live!

This was in June 2019. By the end of December, I was ready to retire from my real estate business and do blogging full-time. I felt I had found my calling and within a couple of weeks, I was getting nominated for awards.

What I learned from Pete and Heather Reese about blogging

Now I will tell you about Pete and Heather. Heather started a Travel Blog over 12 years ago, It’s A Lovely Life, and turned it into a successful business. They have 3 adorable daughters who are given the opportunity to travel with their parents and enjoy seeing this amazing world!

Pete ran a successful real estate business, but as Heather’s blogging business grew he decided to move over and assist her full-time. As the business became profitable and they saw the need to provide blogger training they started creating online courses to help people learn how to create blogs that could give them a similar lifestyle.

At the beginning of 2019, is when I joined the group and started the course and the rest is history. I will go over the courses I took and let you know what I got out of the courses. If you have ever thought about starting a blogging business this course is the place to start

The first course was how to Start A Blogging Business 5 Day Crash Course. Pete and Heather show you all the easy steps to take to get your own blog started, including finding your niche and domain name. By the time you finish the course, you will be ready to create and launch your new blog.

In the course, you can listen to videos and will have assignments at the end of each day to implement what you have learned. Click on the link below to sign up for this free course.

These two courses are a great way to get your start in the blogging business. I have been doing this for 2 years and appreciate the courses that Pete and Heather provided. They were always there to answer questions and make sure we had the chance to succeed if we followed what they taught us.

I love the support you get from fellow bloggers, as everyone is willing to share and give positive feedback.

As long as you develop a plan and stay committed, follow basic rules, and continue to learn different ways to be successful, you should be able to create useful content that is valuable to your readers, no matter what your niche is. Touching someone’s life is worth it!
