This is NOT your typical “make money blogging” course (and not just because it's 100% free for you).

This is fresh squeezed, tried and tested, next year’s model kinda stuff.

This is an approach to making money blogging that goes against everything you think you know about monetizing your blog.

You probably believe stuff like:

  • You need tons of traffic to make money blogging.
  • You need a huge email list of raving fans to make a living selling your stuff.
  • You need to promote other people’s products, plaster your site with ads, and sell your soul to make big money online.
  • You need to have tons of money, equipment, and tech know-how to create an online business + super successful blog. 
  • You need to have big social media followings before you make real quit-your-day-job money with your blog.

Nope, nope, nope.

The blogging and online business world is CHANGING. For the better. If you’re creative, generous, hard-working and passionate, you’re just the right type of person to make it in this new world of building a profitable blog and business. 

You see, blogging & business go hand in hand.

The artists, writers, designers and creative thinkers are making BANK.

Wanna be one of them?


This is a FREE 8-day email course that shows you how to build a focused, profitable, purpose-driven blog and business.

Each day for 8 days you'll receive a new lesson right to your inbox.

Like I said, this isn’t going to be a bunch of information you’ve read a hundred times before. It’s not your everyday "how to make money blogging" advice. This is not for everyone. This email course is for people ready to harness their unique perspective, talents, and experiences and start making money with the resources they have now. 

This course is for you if you're ready stop screwing around and turn your BLOG into a thriving BUSINESS.


When I finally decided to “monetize” my blog, I had all sorts of ideas about what that meant. I had this whole, big plan I was going to follow. When I think back on it now, I didn’t know what I was doing. 

The plan included:

  1. Increasing my traffic (takes a super long time and kinda boring - I’d rather be creating stuff)
  2. Waiting until I had enough traffic to apply to ad networks, and hope that they’d accept me (ugh, I hate waiting to be chosen. LAME).
  3. Sign up for affiliate programs and hope that someone clicked my link (figure out how to promote other people’s stuff without sounding totally lame and feeling gross).
  4. Little by little, over the course of a year or more, hope to make a few hundred and then a few thousand dollars a month.

UGH! What was I thinking?

Jeez, I was not thinking with my brain and I was about to just suck it up and do all that crap.

There is a better way (and holy crap am I glad I figured it out). Let me show you.


Um, if this is really so great, why is this free?

Because I see a lot of people sharing blogging advice from 5 years ago that just doesn't apply anymore and I want to show you a different approach to making a living with your blog, skills, and obsessions. I love helping other people build big, badass businesses.

And honestly? I hope that when you take this free course you'll think of me fondly. That you'll join me in creating badass businesses and blogs. And that you'll think to yourself, hmm, this lady is on to something.

Is this just a bunch of “everybody knows that” / “I’ve read a hundred blog posts about this” kind of things?
Nope. I don’t think so. When I set out to monetize my blog I read SO MANY blog posts and eBooks and guides about it - they all said the same thing. The same 5 ways to make money with your blog. I tried them all. None of them worked for me. And more importantly, those monetization strategies weren't even fun.

So I did something different. I stopped doing what everyone else was doing and did my own thing. Guess what? It worked. I'm not regurgitating other people's advice here - it's tried and tested by yours truly.

Who are you anyway?
Oh hey! I'm Mariah. I like to build profitable blogs, create sold-out-every-time products and programs, and help you do the same. I like to listen to 60's surf music when I'm working. I've been in a punk band since I was 13 and I love corgis (those little legs!).

What else is there to know? Oh right - the blogging business stuff:

I grew my first blog from $0 - $85,000+ in profit in less than a year. I did this not by selling ad space or putting affiliate links in my blog posts.

I build profitable blogs that create real value for real people, and I believe in creating and selling your own stuff.

Today, I'm running more than 4 businesses and I continue to experiment, build, tweak, grow, and launch new projects.
