May was a rookie to the internet before he started his finance blog. Now he consistently puts out content on a range of topics from Finance, Taxes, Politics, Renewable Energy and Geek Culture. He monetizes the blog through affiliate relationships and a soon-to-be premier ad network alliance.
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?
So often I hear people use the excuse that they don’t know how to get started as the reason they never take action. Michael had no experience blogging before this and the reason he started wasn’t from the desire to start a blog. After hiring an external company to create some online content to help with his personal brand reputation, he realized they did a shitty job and he couldn’t let that be the final draft. Michael spent some time recrafting the content, posted it online, and saw some traffic finding his page. This sparked a fire in him and he decided to dive into content creation in his downtime. Now, Michael has been featured in many online media publications and just had a record month of traffic with over 50,000 visits.
