5 Things You Need to Do Before Turning Into a Full-Time Blogger

I’m pretty sure every blogger’s goal at one point is to turn your blog into a full-time job, that would be the dream! But before becoming a full-time blogger, it’s important that you do/have certain things in order to be financially stable and rely on your blog as a career.

Je suis presque sûr que l’objectif de chaque blogueur est de transformer votre blog en un travail à temps plein, ce serait le rêve! Mais avant de devenir un blogueur à temps plein, il est important que vous ayez/que vous possédiez certaines choses afin d’être stable sur le plan financier et de pouvoir compter sur votre blog en tant que carrière.

PAID OPPORTUNITIES

I’m sure you already know this but it’s essential that you get paid opportunities regularly and consistently. You might receive 2 to 3 paid opportunities every month (which is amazing) but if they only bring you £50 each, that won’t be enough to pay your rent and bills.

As a blogger, you’ll be more financially secure if you receive multiple paid opportunities every month and you’ll know for a fact that you can rely on your blog’s income for a living.

Je suis sûr que vous le savez déjà, mais il est essentiel que vous obteniez des opportunités rémunérées de manière régulière et cohérente. Vous pourriez recevoir 2 à 3 opportunités payées chaque mois (ce qui est incroyable), mais s’ils ne vous apportent que £50 chacun, cela ne sera pas suffisant pour payer votre loyer et vos factures.

En tant que blogueur, vous serez plus en sécurité financière si vous recevez plusieurs opportunités payées chaque mois et vous saurez que vous pouvez compter sur les revenus de votre blog pour gagner votre vie.

SOCIAL MEDIA

You don’t need thousands nor millions of followers in order to become a full-time blogger but it’s important that you have a good amount of followers when it comes to social media.

I reckon if you have more than 5k of followers, it’s definitely a good start. You’ll start to receive great opportunities on your social media platforms and your blog. Note that your social media platforms have to grow gradually if you expect to get more opportunities regularly.

Vous n’avez pas besoin de milliers ni de millions d’abonnés pour devenir un blogueur à temps plein, mais il est important que vous ayez beaucoup d’abonnés en matière de médias sociaux. 

Je pense que si vous avez plus de 5 000 adeptes, c’est certainement un bon début. Vous allez commencer à recevoir d’excellentes opportunités pour vos plateformes de médias sociaux et votre blog. Notez que vos plates-formes de médias sociaux doivent se développer progressivement si vous souhaitez obtenir régulièrement davantage d’opportunités.

TRAFFIC

This one is pretty obvious but if you want to make a living out of your blog, you need to get a lot of traffic on your blog. You need at least thousands of page views every month, so work on your blog content and traffic!

Celui-ci est assez évident, mais si vous voulez gagner votre vie sur votre blog, vous devez générer beaucoup de trafic sur votre blog. Vous avez besoin d’au moins des milliers de pages vues chaque mois, alors travaillez sur le contenu et le trafic de votre blog!

TIME

It takes a lot of time and energy to run a blog full-time. Before you go full-time with it, you need to make sure you are ready for it. You have to spare time to run your blog as well as your other priorities whether it’s your child, home, school, etc.

Gérer un blog à temps plein prend beaucoup de temps et d’énergie. Avant d’y aller à plein temps, vous devez vous assurer que vous êtes prêt(e). Vous devez consacrer du temps à la gestion de votre blog et à vos autres priorités, qu’il s’agisse de votre enfant, de votre maison, de votre école, etc.

SOURCES OF INCOME

Last but not least, if you want to turn your blog into a business, make sure you have multiple sources of income. This ties with everything I’ve mentioned previously. In order to have multiple sources of income, you need to have a large number of followers on social media, get a lot of traffic on your blog and receive paid opportunities regularly.

Whether it’s sponsored posts, ads on your blog, affiliate sales, etc. you need to have at least two to three sources of income in order to be financially secure. For instance if you only rely on one source of income – let’s just say sponsored posts – if you don’t receive any sponsored content for this month, you will be in a very difficult situation.

Enfin, si vous souhaitez transformer votre blog en entreprise, assurez-vous de disposer de plusieurs sources de revenus. Cela rejoint tout ce que j’ai mentionné précédemment. Pour avoir plusieurs sources de revenus, vous devez avoir un grand nombre d’abonnés sur les médias sociaux, générer beaucoup de trafic sur votre blog et recevoir régulièrement des opportunités rémunérées.

Qu’il s’agisse de messages sponsorisés, d’annonces sur votre blog, de ventes d’affiliés, etc. vous devez disposer d’au moins deux à trois sources de revenus pour être en sécurité financière. Par exemple, si vous ne comptez que sur une seule source de revenus – disons simplement les messages sponsorisés – si vous ne recevez aucun contenu sponsorisé pour ce mois-ci, vous serez dans une situation très difficile.

  1. i love how you mention you need thousands (at least) of pageviews a month, it makes me feel accomplished lol
    i do need to work more on my site so i can get bigger numbers, but i think im at a good place 🙂
    Thank you so much for the tips!!

  2. I’m definitely not ready to take blogging full time, but I would love to one day! I’ve had some weird hurdles lately, my DA score randomly dropped a ton when I had been working on it for months. No Idea what happened there, but I hope things go back to normal soon. Great post!

    1. Moz recently updated their domain authority tool and a lot of websites’ DA scores went down drastically which sucks 😔 thank you hun ❤️

  3. I am a Chinese junior high student YouTuber and blogger, and I am busy with my study in my school and my home, even outside. Thanks for your useful article, but I don’t want to be a full-time blogger and YouTuber, they are my hobbies, not my careers.
    Last week, teachers around my school discovered my website and my YouTube channel. I got about 50 views and 1 follower in my blog, and 1 subscriber in my YouTube channel on that day.

  4. What would you recommend that someone start with if they’re looking for blogging to eventually turn into a profitable side-hustle?

    It’s so tricky trying to navigate whether I should be focusing solely on content / upload schedules (since that helps me to grow my followers), or whether I should be focusing on things that actually grow blog traffic (such as SEO / promotion)

    1. I’d highly recommend to focus on your blog content and being consistent with your upload schedules first and then focus on your blog traffic. When you publish good quality blog posts regularly, it’s easier to grow your traffic whereas if you didn’t pay attention to your content and schedule, there wouldn’t be any point of growing your blog traffic because you won’t be able to turn people who visit your website into regular readers.

  5. Great adice. It’s certainly my aim to get to full time blogging about a subject that I love ! Thank you !

  6. Thanks for introducing yourself to me by liking my article. Yours was very informative with sound advice. Blessings to you.

  7. Is it possible to become a full time blogging without social media. I can’t get it till I’m 18 so I’m trying to find alternative ways to grow my blog/ YouTube channel.

    1. Yes! Social media will help you and might bring you additional sources of income and exposure. However, you can absolutely become a full-time blogger without social media as long as you get traffic to your blog.

  8. Hi, I have a question! How do you get your own domain? like without the WordPress.com in the end? Is there any free or easy way to do it? How did you do it? Thanks! xoxo
