Starting my blog three years ago completely changed my life. I went from being a high school band director that hated his job to working from literally anywhere that has an internet connection and choosing my own hours.
I don’t have a degree in writing, and there’s nothing “special” about me that’s led to my success as a blogger. I’m just a former teacher who worked hard and figured things out along the way.
And since I get emails and private messages every single day asking how to start a blog, I decided to put my teacher hat back on and show you exactly how to start your own money-making blog right now!
I’m going to show you everything you need to know to get started blogging, and I have even put some great free resources together for you. Over the years, I’ve seen so many people who want to start blogs and don’t, and I’ve realized that even if you know exactly what to do, getting started is still the hardest part.
The learning curve for growing a blog seems steep, and unfortunately, that’s what keeps thousands of potentially incredible bloggers from starting their own blogs every year.
That’s why I decided to create Launch That Blog – to make starting a blog easy
My goal is to help you focus on what matters most with your blog: sharing your unique message with the world (and make money doing it).
I’ll talk more about Launch That Blog (LTB) and how this free service will make the process of starting a blog simple, but first, I want to help you figure out if starting a blog is a good choice for you.
Let’s get this out of the way first – I’m not some kind of tech genius. I had no idea how to run a blog before I started this website. I was a high school band director that had worked hard to pay off a lot of student loan debt, and I wanted to help people that were in the same situation that I had been.
In fact, I was so intimidated by the prospect of starting a blog that I put it off for months. I would share what I had learned about personal finance on my private Facebook page but realized pretty quickly that I could only reach so many people that way.
I wanted to reach thousands of people, not hundreds. So I finally jumped in and started my own website.
Talk about stressful. Suddenly, I was drowning in technical terms like themes, plugins, hosting, and more. It kinda sucked, honestly. All I wanted to do was write!
That’s where Launch That Blog comes in. My team takes care of all the tech stuff so that you can get started blogging faster. I spent hours and hours watching YouTube walkthroughs, reading other blogs about how to actually get mine started, and slogged through tutorial after tutorial just to get to the point where I could even write my first blog post.

We’re going to set up your blog for free because we want you to be able to focus on the fun stuff.
