How I Make Money Blogging by Crystal Stemberger
In Crystal’s own words:
I started Budgeting in the Fun Stuff (BFS) at the end of February 2010 and grew it into a site that has made more than $42,000 as of the end of June 2012.
I also used 2011 to start several other sites, buy six additional sites to co-own, and I found other ways to make money online. I went from making a salary of $35,500 a year in a cubicle from 2005-2011 to working for myself from home by July 2011!
Since then, I have brought in $6,000 – $23,000 a month from my online endeavors!!!
