Welcome to BloggingCaseStudy.com. This website, created by Glen Allsopp, has been developed as a result of a team effort with Andrea Wren, and the column she is writing for the Guardian newspaper. Starting September 10th 2011, I (Glen) will personally be taking a freelance writer (Andrea) through the steps of how to build a popular blog that ethically makes money.
The aim of this six-month collaboration is to not only leave Andrea with a large audience of people who care about what she says, but also with a website that can eventually generate an income for her on a monthly basis. On top of that, we’ll also be showing other people (that’s you!) how to do the same.
Why this project is different…
Unlike everyone else “showing” you how to make money online, this case study will reveal Andrea’s exact website, exact traffic sources, and step-by-step instructions for everything I have asked her to do. Whether you’re brand new to the world of creating websites or you’ve had a go at blogging before, I have no doubt that you’ll learn something here which helps set you on the right path to start making an income from the internet.
Any products or services I recommend will not include any affiliate links and are simply tools that I already use.
The core updates to this case study will be found every two weeks in the Guardian newspaper, with this website being used for additional information that we can’t fit in the column. Special thanks go out to all of you who have shared this site via various social networks in the header.
It’s great to have you on this journey…
