So, you want to know a little about me, do you? Well, that is what this page is all about.? My name is Peter, and I’m an Aussie father of two. You must know that I’m of Italian heritage as that is a part of who I am.
I’ve been blogging for almost 15 years, and it’s been a most enjoyable experience. Over the years, I have built 13 blogs. I have decided that number is way too large to manage efficiently, so I’m in the process of downscaling.
As you’ve most likely have guessed, my reason for blogging is to have an online income. After all, this blog’s tagline is ‘Blogging for money’. ?
Let me tell you, blogging for money isn’t as easy as many people would have you believe. But, I’m not one to give up. My best yearly income, after expenses, was between five to six thousand dollars.
I’m hoping that by offloading the bulk of the blogs and concentrating on the remaining ones, I’ll be able to increase my online income.
Having fewer blogs also gives me more time to concentrate on my YouTube Channel. Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention, I’m hoping to be a YouTube Star. ? I call my channel, My Bonzer Channel, which has an Aussie vibe to it. It’s not a niche channel and covers everything from my Laughaholics videos to my How-To Videos. I’m always looking for new subscribers so why not bite the bullet and subscribe. I pride myself on the quality of my videos, and I’m still trying to improve.
My Online Money Making Tools
Like all successful businesses, you need the tools to help you bring in the cash. The type of tools depends on your business. For my online money-making venture, I rely on the following.
1: Grammarly is an essential blogging tool. It does my spell checking, checks my grammar and among other things gives me hints on how to improve my writing. I wrote about this here.
2: Market Samurai, is vital in that it helps me to pick the best keywords so that I can rank well in the search engines. I had a post for that as well, but I lost that when my database crashed. I wrote about that here.
3: TubeBuddy, like Market Samurai, is a keyword research tool explicitly aimed at YouTube. It also has other exciting videos. Yep, I did a video on TubeBuddy as well.
4: The Creator is a marketing tool that allows me to create my ads, my YouTube thumbnails as well as creating banners, memes and most of the graphics I use on my blogs.
5: Inpixio, a photo editor which amongst other things can remove the background from your images, leaving you with a transparent background. I use the resulting images in my videos, thumbnails as well as some other areas.
That’s it for now. If I think of anything else, I’ll add to this page at a later date.
