Baby Boomer Blogger: Work From Home Blog For Profit…
My wife and I love to travel however it could become tough to travel once we retire if we didn’t have an extra stream of income coming from our online blogs.
As the two of us are hitting sixty on our next birthdays we are close to retirement. Actually I have already retired and work from home home as a blogger. My wife has to hang in there for just one more year and we are free to do as we please for the rest of our life.
It’s sad to see all the people who are hitting retirement without a plan for their future. They just live day to day and are fearing retirement because they don’t have any security. A few of our friends have even been out of work for some time with little hope to ever be employed again.
Blogging For Profit
I do have a plan in place. One where I work from home blogging about things I love to talk about and make money doing it. The plan is active and working right now. We both worked with computers for the past 25 years and have two computers at home.
Having a computer isn’t an uncommon thing today as most people have laptops in their homes. We just chose to make money with our computers through blogging about hobbies and interests. Currently I am the blogger but once my wife retires and we start traveling she will be blogging about our travels for my travel blog.
How To Get Started With Blogging For Profit
We learned about affiliate marketing from Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook so we knew what we were doing. Our blogs now include relevant links to a variety of affiliate products and services based on the blog niche and we make money.
What’s really cool about this is the fact that we don’t even own any of the products we promote. That’s affiliate marketing, using other people’s products to make money with our blogs.
As baby boomers we are plenty old enough to have acquired enough experiences to share with readers to keep them coming back for years. All we have to do is write articles for our blogs that are focused on specific words known as keywords to get the right traffic, add a few affiliate links and start making some extra money from those hobbies and interests.
Get started by first learning affiliate marketing from Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook and I will see you online. Be sure to use the comments to ask any questions or to leave your comments.
