Hello! What’s up?
I’m Katelyn Fagan, and if you are like me, you want to know how to make money blogging. You want to work from home, set your own hours, share your message with the world, and bring home a little (or big) paycheck too. It’s completely possible to do so through blogging!
What’s up Blogging is designed to be your go-to resource for all things blogging – how to start a blog, how to set it up properly and prettily, how to promote your content, gain new followers, grow your email list, work with advertisers, get paid by brands, create shareable content, earn passive income, manage social media channels, and love what you do.
Who am I?
In September of 2013 I finally decided to turn my little blog into a blog business – What’s up Fagans?. I started with 7,500 pageviews that first month. A year later in September 2014 I had about 120,000 pageviews. Two years later in September 2015 I had 237,000 pageviews (which was actually down from the month before it). I continue to grow and to earn more money. In 2014 I earned a part-time income. In 2015 I earned a full-time income. In 2016 I plan to earn even more.
In the 2.5 year since jumping head first into blogging for money, I learned a tremendous amount about what it takes to make a full-time income online through a website. It has been quite the journey God has led me on and I am grateful everyday for it.
The money I earn from blogging radically blesses my family’s financial situation, because I am a young wife of a doctoral student, and mother of four kids including a set of twins (who are my oldest). We have struggled financially for years, but because of blogging, we aren’t anymore. It’s a wonderful feeling to not live life paycheck to paycheck anymore, to be aggressively paying off student loans, and to have savings in the bank.
As much as I love all the topics I write about on my blog What’s up Fagans?, I really love talking about blogging. I believe God is leading me to help others be successful with their dreams of earning money from home as a blogger, which is why I started this website.
Unfortunately, I do not have all the answers. There is a lot I do not know. I don’t have the largest social media following, or the largest mailing list. I am still learning and implementing new ideas all the time. However, I am successful at what I already do, and I know I can help you be successful too.
I want you to be successful. I truly believe there is room enough for both of us to be profitable online, and I know that sometimes all it takes is getting the right information at the right time. I want to be the person you go to for blogging questions. If I don’t know it, I promise to figure it out or point you in the direction of someone who does know.
