If you’re anything like me, you’re probably interested in finding more ways to earn money online and be your own boss. Blogging could be one of these ways which is what I am learning from Elaine Rau’s course called How To Start A Money-Making Blog! I’m truly inspired by her story of how she started her blog LadyBossBlogger, and I’m sure you will be too!
Who is Elaine Rau?
Elaine Rau is a gorgeous ‘Lady Boss Blogger’ who started blogging out of desperation. She quit her dream job that she loved but that degraded her personality, which left her feeling lonely, helpless, scared, and broke.
She got herself together when she started learning about blogging and interviewing other successful bloggers and entrepreneurs gave her the boost she needed personally and professionally.
In under 3 years, her blog, LadyBossBlogger.com accrued a massive amount of followers (200,000+ to be exact). She has been featured in 100+ websites, has interviewed over 1000+ female entrepreneurs, and has been interviewed and featured in The Huffington Post.

How to Start A Money-Making Blog is a course designed to help female bloggers find their ‘why’ and eventually start making money out of their own blogs. It is written in a way that will make you find your purpose in blogging and turning that purpose into a money-making stream.
It is sprinkled here and there with amazing tips and tricks and tools to not only get started in blogging but also to get your blog rolling and be a good income stream for you. It focuses on creating a good strategy for blogging that will help push your blog to the next level.

What I Learned So Far
As you can see on the breakdown, this course is so packed full of straight-to-the-point topics. The way she wrote it is so easy to understand and it’s not in a way that will make you feel overwhelmed with technical blogging jargon.
You may know that I have been blogging for quite a while now but I am still learning. I am taking this course slowly and seriously because I wanted to internalize all the points she’s talking about in the course. And I want to make sure I will be applying them on my own blog as well. Some takeaways I have are:
- Blogging is a necessity nowadays if you want to grow your own business/brand.
- There are tons of ways to earn online that goes so well with blogging.
- There so many tools available now that can automate an otherwise boring routine, to make blogging and social media posting consistent.
- Self-discipline is key.
But my most favorite thing she clarified is this:
There is still so much to learn about especially in this continuously changing world of blogging and I am so happy I stumbled across her. I am halfway through the course and there are still new ‘lightbulb’ moments for me as I go along.
How to Start a Money Making Blog is a very handy tool in growing your blog. You can never go wrong with Elaine’s help and in joining in, you will also be introduced to a group of wonderful female entrepreneurs and bloggers who could help you with your blogging journey.
