How To Make a REAL Income Blogging

Everyone has been asking me lately how I make money blogging (you can find my Your Modern Family blogging income here).   I want to tell you exactly how I do it.
It is hard work, but I am willing to do it because I have real goals that I want to reach.
My financial goals (I am going to make it happen by blogging):
– Pay off the house early
– Have my husband work with me full time
– Pay for our kid’s college educations, in full. (We have four kids)
– Have a hefty savings account (my goal is to have $1,000,000 in the bank)

I schedule my Facebook posts every night before I go to bed (sometimes I forget, but I try to do this).  I aim for one every hour from 6:00 am – 12:00 am.   Facebook is hard, these days, but I still try.

I pin about 10 pins a day, but my goal is 20.

tweet a few times a day- I really just tweet when I think about it.

promote my ebooks & have sales to promote them more (example: 1/2 off)- My affiliates make 50% of each book sale, so they really promote my sales, which is fantastic!

I post every single day.   Posting frequently will bring more readers. 
If I have a sponsored post, I double up my post for that day because I don’t like to have a low sponsored to non-sponsored ratio, so for every 1 sponsored post, I post 1 non-sponsored post, on the same day.

So, making money…
I make most of my money from sponsored posts.
