Become a Blogging Master

Published July 30, 2008 by CSS Newbies.

Everyone blogs for different reasons. Some simply do it for the joy of writing. Others blog to promote a product or service they’re hoping to sell. Some do it for the exposure to a mass audience, while others write for a close circle of family of friends. And still others are hoping that blogging will prove to be a means to an end, a chance at moving into a new career where they’re their own bosses.

Whichever one of those reasons you’d attribute to yourself, one thing is probably true: you’d love it if your blogging habit would pay for itself. And hey, if your blog made you some extra spending money on the side too… well, that’d be icing on a pretty darn cool cake, wouldn’t it?

But how do you start making money with your blog? The only people who can jump into income-producing blogging without a good deal of planning and understanding are those who are already famous in another genre (Drew Curtis of Fark.com wouldn’t need to work to create a popular blog; his blog would be popular by virtue of his being Drew Curtis). If you’re not already a pseudo-celeb, where do you go?

For the rest of us, there’s Yaro Starak’s Blog Mastermind online course. In this course, Yaro walks his students through the process of learning to blog the way he does. And trust me – you want to learn to blog like Yaro. He’s been making anywhere from $10,000 to $35,000 per month for the last couple of years by blogging.

And Mr. Starak didn’t come into the blogging scene as a celebrity superstar, either. He simply writes good content, promotes it well, varies his income sources (for security), and brings in visitors. And now, he’s willing to share how he does it with the rest of us.

If you’re a veteran blogger who has had trouble generating income in the past, there is probably no better place you could go to learn the secrets of the trade. There are a lot of so-called gurus out there, but Yaro has the knowledge – and the income – to back up his claim.

And if you’re new to blogging, the Blog Mastermind course is a fantastic way to enter the scene with all the knowledge necessary to start off on the right foot and build a successful blog as quickly as can be done.

Best of all, the Blog Mastermind course is surprisingly affordable: just $97 buys you a month’s worth of access to this 6-month course. If you like what you see after a month, you can stay on for the long haul and pay the same price ($97) for the remaining 5 months of the course. Or, if you’d like to save a little cash, you can pay for all 6 months up front and save $85.

If you’re new to blogging, $97 may sound like a large chunk of dough… but you have to think about this sort of thing as an investment. Even if the information you gain teaches you how to create a blog that generates just $100/month, you’ll have made back your money in under six months. And several of Yaro’s previous students are doing much better than a paltry Benjamin per month: check out this interview with one of his past students, who is now making well over six figures a year from his blog.

If you’d like to learn more about Yaro’s teaching style and techniques, check out this video he’s released on Conversion Blogging, one of the cornerstones of how he’s built such a successful blogging enterprise. It will give you a clue both into Yaro’s exceptional teaching ability, as well as give you a glimpse at the quality of content you’ll be getting in the course.

Or, if you’re already convinced, you can sign up for Blog Mastermind here. This course won’t stay open forever, so don’t miss your chance!

    Good questions, both. And I’ll be wholly honest in return.

    There are two things going on here:

    1. While this website is generally about CSS, I don’t want to talk ~exclusively~ about CSS. Without HTML, CSS is useless. Without JavaScript, CSS can’t reach its full modern-day potential. And without blogs… well, this website would be a heck of a lot more difficult to maintain, at least.

    I want the latitude to talk about the whole scope of web development — while hopefully never losing sight of the fact that, in the end, this website should be a great resource for those learning CSS.

    2. This type of post is something new I’m trying. Basically, Yaro has an affiliate program set up for the Blog Mastermind program. If someone goes from my site to his through the links I’ve provided, and then decides to sign up for the program, I’ll receive a bit of compensation in return.

    I’ve never done this type of article before, and I’m going to gauge reader reaction before I do another one. My hope is that it will prove informative to my readers (or at least not insulting!) and simultaneously monetarily beneficial for me. At the end of the day, this website takes a good deal of time and effort to maintain, and it’d be easier to justify spending my time here if the site were generating revenue. Otherwise, I have a full-time job, a fiancee, a wedding, freelancing gigs, teaching gigs, and a couple of other websites all vying for my attention!

    So, there’s the honest truth. If you’re willing to accept my argument, great. If you disagree with my methods, let me know. Although, be forewarned that I’m much more receptive to arguments that offer a viable alternative solution. :)

    I hate commercials…

    Better let the first line of an article like this be “this is a sponsored message” or something like that…

  3. Curtis (reply)

    I’m with Edwin, you should state up front that it’s sponsored or some such. As it is it’s a huge break from your normal writing style and it’s obvious, which made me initially wonder if someone hijacked the site and randomly put in some adverts…

    I kept waiting for the punchline when you were going to come out and make fun of this guy. This was really jarring. And a pretty empty scheme on [silly “expert’s” name redacted]. Doesn’t it feel pyramid schemey to you? I’d be surprised if you get a single signup, and for all that, your credibility takes a major hit.

    I prefer Gabe and Max’s Internet Thing ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPsUmhqncAg ) as my tutors for making money on the internets.

    I love your work on CSS; it’s extremely helpful to me. If you don’t have time to do it because of other commitments, my suggestion is not to drastically change the content, but just write less frequently, only when you can and the mood and interest strikes you. What you’ve already done serves as a fantastic resource. Even if you only published one article a month, I’d still be happy to be subscribed.
