I’m A Full Time Blogger.
Three years ago I walked away from the business I’d grown over 12 years. The 7-Figure ecommerce business had gone practically overnight.
Suddenly I was a 50+ woman with no job and no prospects.
After trying teaching and realising I never really liked school the first time round, I knew I needed to start another business…
This time round it had to be low risk and cost very little to set up…
I started with this brand new blog Simply Hatch. Two years later it’s grown to a full-time income and my Start A Blog Guide has been downloaded 9000+ times! Yes really!
I even started a second blog Love Life Be Fit – just to test out what works and what doesn’t right now for brand new lifestyle bloggers.
In just over 12 months it grew to 50,000+ sessions a month and started bringing in a steady income from Mediavine adverts.
Introducing The FREE 12 Month Blog Plan
Now not everyone wants to blog full time and you can adapt the schedule to your ambition and the time you have available. I just think it’s good to have the option. In this crazy world to have an alternative source of income.
When I launched a brand new lifestyle blog just over a year ago, I had my doubts that you could easily make money by just writing posts. Yet a year on it’s bringing in a steady income just from advertising.
Payouts like this one just 16 months after launching:
That’s from a blog I only work on now and again. I went a whole 3 months without posting on this blog. It really is passive income.
As I’m finding with my lifestyle blog, you can write a few posts Google loves and your blog starts to take on a life of it’s own. The traffic starts to snowball and suddenly it feels like very little effort!
Now don’t get the wrong idea from this. Starting a blog takes commitment. There will be times when it’s all to easy to give up. But when it starts to work – wow!
That’s what the planner’s all about. Getting you through those first few months as painlessly as possible. So you can start to make a little money. And then a little more..
A Blog Plan Helps Your Focus On The End Goal
It’s very easy with blogging to end up just writing posts for the sake of it. You decide to post once a week and the night before your post is due you have no idea what to write about.
Instead of writing a post that will bring you traffic, you write about the first topic that pops into your head. Yes we’ve all done this!
This is where the 12 Month Blog Plan helps. It tells what you need to be doing each month and encourages you to plan your posts for maximum impact.

Here’s an insight into what you’ll be doing over the next 12 months.
As you progress through your first year as a newbie blogger, you’ll have different priorities. Your first priority is to set up your self-hosted WordPress blog.
In the beginning your blog has no content. Planning and writing content is your main priority for month one. It makes sense to delay promoting until you have a reasonable amount of content on your blog.
Month 2 & 3
Month two and three will be heavily about traffic and most of your efforts will be focused on promoting your posts. Without traffic it’s impossible to make money from blogging.
Month 4 &5
By month four and five you’re ready to start making money. Create freebies to get people signing up for your email list and join affiliate programs. Write review posts and promote products to your list.
Month 6 & 7
Month six and seven will be about refocusing on building traffic. You’ll hustle for more social media traffic and work at SEO to boost your Google page 1 rankings.
Month 8 & 9
It’s now time to produce your first product, spend months eight and nine focused on creation.
By month ten you’ll be ready to launch your product to your engaged email list.
Month 11 & 12
Month eleven sell and promote your product and in month twelve you can review your first year’s progress. Start planning for the year ahead!
