Are you fed up with your daytime job and want to become a full-time blogger?
You are bored on the daily basis to work from morning until evening and doing the same work again and again.
Learning no new things at all.
Are you running a blog part-time and want to leave your full-time job to become a full-time blogger?
Then You are reading the right post because I am going to share with you how you can become a full-time blogger and earn more than your regular job.
First of all let me tell you about myself, that three years before I gave up my job as an SEO expert to become a full-time blogger. Although, It took me about 3 months to earn more than I was earning by doing the job. But that experience was awesome. It feels really good when we become our own boss and earn more than the previous job we were doing.
In this post, I am going to share my experience of how I become a full-time blogger from a part-time blogger.
1. Step 1 is to make a Plan if you want to become a full-time blogger
If you are about to quit your job and want to become a full-time blogger, Then the first thing that you need to do is create a perfect plan. Because if you are working without a plan then you might get a shortage of money for a short time or in some cases for a long period of time. So, Before Quitting your daytime job you must become a full-time blogger who earns much full filling his or her needs.
And also you must keep these things in mind:
- How are you going to earn through your blog?
- What is the amount required by you to quit your job and become a full-time blogger?
- When are you ready to leave your job?
- How much amount you must save if your full-time blogging fails to pay you the desired amount?
- What are the sources needed by you to grow your blog?
- And much more things.
Keeping the above things in mind will not let you have an obstacle in your full-time blogging.
2. Selecting a perfect Niche for your Blog
I don’t know what your field is, is it web development, SEO, App development, or something else like a lawyer, Cook, or expert in something else? But the only thing that I want to tell you is that a Blogger can’t write about everything. So, I truly recommend you choose a perfect topic for your blog. I have written a post on “Single topic blog vs. Multi-topic blog” which will help you to understand better that is why you must choose a perfect niche for your blog.
Although, there are many single topics that I can recommend to you to start your blog.
- Small business
- The outdoors
- Fitness and health
- Inspiration and advice
- Electronics, and more!
But the best thing about a blog is that it can be about anything in your mind and once it looks to you the same niche can help you to become a full-time blogger then you can leave your daytime job and lead the way to becoming a full-time blogger.
3. Starting a blog
This is the most important thing one must consider. What I mean to say is that if you have not started your own blog then how can you become a full-time blogger?
Let me tell you about myself that How I became a full-time blogger. I started my blog in October 2015 and for the first two months I was a part-time blogger but When it looked to me that I can earn my living through my blog then I give up my job of daytime to become a full-time blogger. Actually, I left my job just after two months when I knew that I can earn my living through Blogging. Now you can see that my Blog has a good domain authority and has also had a good reputation on Google.
So, if you have not started your blog then, the first thing that you must do is start your blog. And If you haven’t started your blog yet then I can help you to get hosting and a domain for just $12 USD from GoDaddy to run a self-hosted WordPress blog.
4. Publish high-quality content regularly
If you want to earn from your blog and become a complete blogger. Then You must regularly publish high-quality content for your blog. It is important to publish high-quality and unique content for your blog because the readers will read and share the content only if they like it.

For some people writing content becomes a burden. But will be more fun if you embrace your work of blogging. If you want to run a successful blog and earn your living by the means of blogging only, then you must make content writing your companion.

But here also I will share some of the techniques which you can use to make money through blogging.

There are many monetizing networks available on the internet with which you can earn a very good amount. You can also see that I am using Google AdSense on my blog for monetizing. But If you are not able to get Google Adsense then you go for some other monetizing networks like Infolinks, Chitika, Bidvertisers, and many others.

Your blog can earn money only if it is getting a good amount of traffic. It will surely be a waste of time, effort, and money if your blog doesn’t help you earn a good amount for you to become a full-time blogger. So, I suggest you follow the below techniques to get more traffic for your blog. I will be sharing all those search engine optimization techniques which have worked for me. As it is simply the more your blog has traffic more are chances that you will earn more.
So, here are the things that you must be doing to increase the page views of your blog:
- Be Active on Social Media Sites: There are many social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and some others, although I have collected a list of social media sites where you can share and promote your content easily. Getting traffic from social media sites is considered the best type of referral traffic and will help you to grow your blog enormously.
- Learn Search Engine Optimization: Once you have started your blog then it’s time for you to start learning about SEO. I have prepared a post that can help you to learn the basics of SEO and also all the On-page SEO techniques that you need to know. SEO is important to learn because it will help you to increase the traffic of your blog on Google SERPs and believe me that this kind of traffic is considered the best type of traffic.
- Write Guest Post to get More Exposure: You just can’t get more traffic by writing for your own blog. If you want to get more traffic for your blog then you should also write for other blogs. I have done guest blogging many times to get more traffic to my blog and you can do the same.
- Make your content shareable: The First thing you need is a sharing button at the end of your post so that people can easily share your post if they like it. And secondly, write content that people like to share.
