RVE 229: 8 Ways to Make Money as a Blogger

You sell the house, you buy an RV, you start a blog. But how do you take a blog and actually turn it into a profitable business? Today Alyssa shares ways to monetize a blog plus how to start treating your blog as a business instead of a hobby.

Blogging is always the #1 way new RVers tell us they want to make money. You can work from anywhere, have endless stories to share, and you always see bloggers sharing amazing things online. It’s a dream job!

But building up a profitable blog can take years—especially if you don’t know how to blog as a business.

This episode is sponsored by Pillowpak. One thing almost every RV lacks is a place to hang up and store a backpack, but you always need one for hiking, taking an overnight trip, or just packing up your laptop to work away from your rig. Pillowpak offers a line of lightweight, machine-washable backpacks and organizing bags that easily roll and stow away in small spaces.

We just spent two weeks in Florida and we stayed a short two-minute walk away from the beach and used the 55-liter Pillowpak to fill with towels, snacks, water, extra clothes, and we brought along the utility bag to stuff our wet towels into so that snacks and clean clothes didn’t get sandy and wet. And then since the bags are all machine washable, before we left Florida, we could run everything through the washing machine so we aren’t tracking sand around everywhere!

Pillowpak has a line of different bags depending on what you’re looking for.

From the casual day hike with the Cubepak, a day away from the rig with the Pillowpak, to storing water hoses with the Utility Bag or packing those muddy shoes in the Shoe Bag. To check out all of their super light weight, easily rolled and stowed, and fully machine-washable products and pick up a Pillowpak of your own, visit getpillowpak.com.

Today’s episode dives into how to treat your blog as a business and the strategies we’ve used to build a six-figure blog. This is a recording of a live workshop Alyssa taught as part of our 2020 RV Entrepreneur Summit and the basis for our course, Blogging as a Business.
