Why I Decided to Go Premium

Last Update: April 18, 2019

I've been thinking about blogging for profit for a long time. Back in the day, when I published my first novel, everyone said it was important to blog. I didn't even know what a blog was, but I knew I needed one because everyone said I did. So I created a blog over on Blogger. I didn't monetize it, because I had no idea how to do so. I just blogged about life and writing books.

After a few years, I had to choose between writing books and blogging, because I didn't have much time (or brain cells) left over after being a wife and mom.

When my husband was laid off from work after working for a company for 29 years and a few years before we could retire full-time, I decided I needed to do something with my writing. I'd blogged before. I'd set up a blog and even used WordPress, but this time I needed to learn how to monetize it.

I researched and found Wealthy Affiliate. I went through the free training and set up a mock website. I also researched other programs and weighed them against what was available at WA.

I realized that if I wanted to make a go of blogging for profit, I had to commit both time and money to it.

I decided to go premium with WA because it offers the best value. Hands down. For my investment I have access to training. Not just thrown-together, let's-make-a-buck training, but training that goes in-depth on how to build a profitable blog. And lots of training. Plus webinars. And a fantastic community of people willing to help.

Access to free images is worth the price of a yearly membership alone. I know, because I've bought images for my book covers and using 4-6 images per blog post would be quite costly.

The templates as well as the grammar and spell check are amazing helps when creating content.

Being able to ask technical questions and having website help is also so valuable.

One of the biggest perks of going premium is access to the Jaaxy tool as well as the WA SEO tool. These tools have helped me to drill down to search terms that are popular but have low competition.

Going premium has helped me to view my blog as a business instead of a hobby.

Given all of these tools and the great community here at WA, I cannot fail. I can, and will, attain my dream of blogging for profit.

And so can you!

We do tend to overlook the value and convenience of the free pictures.

I look forward to reading about your journey.
