Alright guys. Over the past two weeks, I’ve written longer posts with totally helpful and actionable items to make your blog post images branded and profesh, and make sure your blog isn’t guilty of design sins.
This week, we’re going super fun 🎉 and thinking about ways to make money on your blog! Specifically, how to make money with an e-book rather than with a service. To explain:
one-on-one projects that require continual work with clients in order to get paid
write an e-book, and then sell without required continual work – do the work once, get paid many times.
So, based on those explanations, you can see that writing an e-book is a better use of your time, because it is passive income.
You might be ready to take that step toward making passive income (or any income at all) on your blog, but maybe you’re stuck for ideas. The thing is, you can write an e-book that combines your passions with your expertise.
La examples, amigos!

Really, you can make an e-book on anything you blog about – you just need to do a bit of brainstorming.
And for that, I’ve created a workbook just for you. It’s a PDF that will organize and inspire your e-book ideas as well as blog posts to sell your e-books.
To get the workbook, just submit your email address below. (If you’re already on my list, you get direct access!)
