👋 Hey, I’m Lidiya.
I once started a self-improvement blog called Let’s Reach Success. It’s now earning $50K with minimum effort and is the foundation of my brand, covering important topics such as Finance and Marketing, Travel and Health, and helping people start a business and change their life.
It’s also what has allowed me to leave my home country (Bulgaria) and relocate to my ideal destination (Amsterdam, Netherlands).
The first years were about research, making mistakes, understanding the whole idea behind setting up a WordPress site, blogging, publishing content, providing value, monetizing a site, building traffic to a blog, working with sponsors, designing a website, etc.
I wasted a ton of time, but all this has now allowed me to help others cut the learning curve in half and make money blogging much sooner.
While it’s good that we live in the era of so much free information at the tip of our fingers, that also creates the issue with information overload.
I’ve heard from plenty of people who started reading about how to launch a blog and make money online, but who soon gave up as it only showed them how much they don’t know and how much there is to learn.
It doesn’t need to be like that.
There are things that work every time. The problem is that every expert you learn from is trying to help you achieve a different goal and sharing their unique experience with you.
Buying many books or following many bloggers might be overwhelming and can lead to never taking action and setting up a site.
That’s why when I was learning from others over the years, I followed their journey from day one and knew exactly how they earned their money and grew their online business.
I too try to be transparent and believe that heading to the Archives of Let’s Reach Success and checking out the first articles shows you I had a completely different approach to content creation and blogging back in the days.
I also updated my About page and shared my whole story. Occasionally, I write articles where I talk about my experiences that led to moving to another country, doubling my income, becoming a freelancer and then a full-time blogger.
I also publish my income reports, which means I calculate my blog earnings and expenses and share them with anyone interested to learn how I make money blogging from home.
In addition, I put a ton of free content out there for anyone wanting to start a business on the side, change their habits, become productive, learn about digital marketing and money management, etc. I have free articles, eBooks, courses, and more.
That builds enough trust. Now, I’ve gathered MY BEST knowledge and experience and bundled it into this epic course you’re about to check out.
Do you often hear about WordPress, hosting, domain, SSL, and SEO and decide blogging is not for you simply because you aren’t familiar with these?
Or maybe you’ve started a blog in the past but then had to learn Google Analytics, email automation, permalinks, domain authority, GDPR, and ad networks?
I’ve got you covered. All that is something you need no experience with. I will show you what you need to know and organize the information so you get the exact steps to follow to set these up and start implementing the necessary strategies once your blog is launched so you can optimize it, make it fast and secure, and turn it into a money-making machine.
You won’t need any code, design knowledge or understanding of how the digital world works for that matter.
WordPress - the free open-source content management system that powers most of the blogs on the Web - is at your disposal and I will show you how to master it in no time.
Neither did I. When I was just starting out with blogging, I didn’t want to send emails to my audience as that was annoying. I didn’t want to promote the products I created and ask for people’s money. I didn’t want to charge a lot for sponsored posts even though brands were contacting me to ask for my rates and were interested in Let’s Reach Success.
A few years went by and I learned this:
It’s okay to ask people for money but only after you’ve offered them enough value for free.
People will gladly pay you if you can truly help them with your product.
With a great blog and the right monetization method, you don’t need to sell actively.
Instead, you can have a system that brings you money passively each day, week or month (thanks to having ads on your site, a sales funnel to sell your products, or by creating epic content and recommending other people’s products in it, which is the foundation of affiliate marketing).
You don’t need to appear salesy even when you write a review of a product or service. Once you learn more about affiliate marketing within this course, you will see how to choose products you believe in, include the links naturally, tell people why it’s worth buying this and how it has helped you, and write content that sells but without pushing the reader to do anything they don’t want to. This can bring you hundreds or thousands of passive income each month in just a year.
So, selling as a blogger isn’t hard or wrong or unprofessional. Once you build your site, gain traffic and get to know your audience a bit better, you can simply monetize their attention by giving them what they want and helping them solve their problems (while still providing a ton of content for free).
I now wanna present to you the ultimate course on how to make money blogging where I share anything you need to know so you can become financially free thanks to this (through all that I've learned from growing my blog over the years).
Enter Financial Freedom Through Blogging.
It’s okay if you aren’t tech-savvy, don’t have experience, aren’t sure how blogging works, don’t know what platform to use to create a website or how to run it once it’s live.
Don’t worry. I will walk you through this step by step (with video lessons) and give you only the information you need to actually create a blogging strategy, find your niche, set goals, find the right hosting provider and install WordPress on it so you can launch your blog.
Together with that, I’ll show you how to design it professionally with a few clicks, what pages to add first, what steps to take to have a great platform ready to welcome your first visitors and earn you money down the road.
In fact, I’ll even build a whole new blog myself so you can see how the process works and simply follow my steps.
During the first years of my blogging career, I was earning through freelance writing. While that itself is what helped me get started and become location independent, it still meant doing work for others and having to follow their rules.
But I knew there was a better way to use my skills. I also knew I wanted to do what I’m passionate about - personal development and online business - and help others with it.
Over time, I began making money from my blog Let’s Reach Success. It started as a personal blog but now earns me $50K per year.
I know so many people who are confused about the possible ways to monetize a website. There are some who don’t start a blog because they don’t believe it can earn them money. And there are the ones who have been blogging for a while but can’t monetize strategically and so they are leaving money on the table.
With the next modules in Financial Freedom through Blogging, I aim at clarifying the best ways to make money from your blog and turn that into a recurring income.
Once your site is set up and you’ve included the main elements, you can think about the most practical way for you to earn your first dollars blogging.
Many newbie bloggers start a blog only to give up a few months after that. They lack consistency and discipline because they never had a strategy in mind and weren’t really sure about the ‘why’ behind all this.
I will help you define these before you even start your blog. Once you do make some money each month, it’s time to get to the next level.
That means understanding how to write content that drives visitors but also sales, how to encourage Google to rank your site higher, how to negotiate prices with sponsors and earn hundreds of dollars for one article on your blog, how to register a company and turn your blog into your brand, and much more.
I’ll cover all this because it’s what I’ve personally been through. I’ll make sure to share all this information with details but also in an easy to digest way.
You won’t just become a full-time blogger after completing this course. Follow all the steps and you will earn enough and be able to call yourself a business owner.
There’s something important that many blogging experts fail to teach you. Even if you learn how to set up a blog and begin earning money, then grow your platform and double your income, you might still end up feeling like you have a job.
But the point of blogging and making money from it is to provide value and get paid in return, to do meaningful work and set your own working hours, to know how to create systems that work for you so you can be away from the laptop and still make thousands of dollars on a monthly basis.
That’s where lifestyle design comes. For example, I waited till I was making enough money online and had some savings, so I could move to another city in a different country - Amsterdam, Netherlands (where I still live happily 2 years later and am planning to buy my first home soon) and travel Asia for a few weeks.
I learned how to manage my money smart, be productive and work 10 or fewer hours per week, prioritize, take my blog and brand seriously and treat it like a real business, and create the daily life that I was once dreaming about.
In the last modules of Financial Freedom through Blogging, I’ll show you how you can do the same.
I don’t want you to start earning from your blog and get to $50K/year just to stay at home all day and feel stuck in life.
No, you need to be out there, leave your comfort zone, experience life, travel and use online business as a way to meet people, develop personally and spiritually, and take better care of yourself so you can also serve your readers better.
You’ll learn more about the life of a full-time blogger, how to have energy all day when you work from home, and much more.
So that’s what Financial Freedom through Blogging is all about.
The course is now open for enrollment with a pre-sale price of $97.
Once it’s released, that will be $197.
A side project like blogging will make you feel in charge of your life again. You’re doing something to build the necessary skills to provide value and earn profits in the digital world.
That’s a big thing and it will pay off in many ways.
You will feel good about yourself knowing you’re dedicated. You’ll have more energy than ever while setting your blog goals and creating a strategy as you’ll begin visualizing your blogging success.
Your confidence will increase the more steps you follow from this course as each next one will be getting you closer to the financial freedom you crave so much.
You will do work that matters, on a subject that you’re passionate about, and no one else will be telling you what to do. You can find your voice and use your unique skillset to turn your blog into your brand and stand out in your chosen field.
Stay consistent till that happens and then nothing will be able to talk you out of your goal to be a full-time blogger.
It always sounds unbelievable that money can easily be made online but the moment it happens you know you can do that again and again and find even more ways to increase your revenue.
I’ll never forget the first few dollars I made and then the first $100. That showed me that getting to $1000 is just a matter of time and focused work!
I want you to experience that yourself. I can’t earn your money on your behalf. You need to first create your blog, see how it works, learn about the different ways to monetize it and then choose the one you believe will work best for you.
Your first payments will bring you the kind of satisfaction that the salary from your job never will.
That’s when you’ll believe you can be like those bloggers who earn a few thousand per month and maybe even like those who got to $50K/month. They too started with just a few dollars and weren’t sure if all this blogging thing was gonna work for them :)
Having a blog where you publish a lot of quality content, build your brand and make some money on the side with ads, sponsored posts, your own products and affiliate marketing is just the beginning.
You shouldn’t stop until you see more of the site’s earning potential.
Every blog and audience are different. But almost any platform these days that’s created with a strategy in mind and is run by a passionate and determined individual can get to making $5,000/month.
That should be enough to help you take it more seriously and start doing it full-time. Even if you have a good salary and make much more than $50K per year, it’s still worth quitting your 9 to 5 to work for yourself.
Self-employment made me happier than ever and is one of the best lifestyle changes I’ve made.
You are your own boss and nothing compares to that. You can finally work on things you believe in and manage your time the way you want.
Also, you can never get rich by working for someone else. But you sure can if you hustle on your blog as there are no limits to how much you can earn online.
Yes, blogging can change your life in multiple ways and all this is possible!
It begins with launching your own platform, publishing content and optimizing it like crazy until you find the right monetization method that works for you and your audience.
Once you get the money and freedom you should use them wisely. You can manage your time and blog like a boss and spend minimum hours behind the laptop and invest the rest of the time to be with your family, travel the world, or do things you enjoy and find new hobbies.

Hey there. This is Lidiya, a full-time freelance writer, lifestyle designer, and creator of Let's Reach Success.
With the courses I create, I want to share my journey to becoming a location independent freelance writer, monetizing my passion and turning it into my career, hacking productivity, increasing my blog income, and living the life I want. Because I believe you can do the same.
Here's the bonus material you'll find at the end of the course:
I take the preparation phase very seriously. This cheatsheet will help you take all the necessary steps before actually setting up a blog so you don't miss anything.
Setting goals for your blog is as important as setting your life objectives. If you want to get far and achieve financial freedom, you'll need to have a clear vision of what you want and what's next for your website and online business. You'll find a lot of information in the first module of the course about this, and with the help of this cheatsheet, you can set some time aside, think your goals through and write them down. That will motivate you and help you see the big picture but also plan the work that needs to be done in the next few weeks and months.
You'll see videos and exact steps to follow in order to start your blog the right way and using the right platforms in Module 2. This list, however, allows you to see it all in one place one final time before you actually set up a site and launch it.
Knowing your target audience before you even publish your first blog posts gives you an advantage in the blogging world. While who your reader is will change together with your niche, blog, your skills and aspirations, it's worth defining this now. With this bonus material, I will show you how to create a reader persona.
Together, we're going to install the most important WordPress plugins in Module 2, right after your site is live, so you can optimize it, secure it and make it look professional. But there are many other tools that are free and can help you tremendously down the road. In this PDF, I'll tell you about all the other wonderful pieces of software you can find in the WordPress directory.
In this bonus material, I share openly all my blogging expenses and how they've changed over the years and give you my honest opinion on what you might want to invest money in once you start earning from your blog.
Many bloggers stay away from sharing the exact numbers, but I truly want to show you that running a big blog doesn't need to be expensive and you can keep the costs low for as long as you want.
We talk a lot about growing your blog by bringing more traffic from different places and there's a whole section about my favorite traffic source - search engines. Other than that, however, there are other little and big ways, many of which surprising, that can lead to growing your audience. I share many ideas with you in this bonus.
The next thing you should always be growing is your email list. Some bloggers even rely solely on it for their income. In the course, I show you how to create an email newsletter and what you can do to get your first 1000 subscribers and optimize your blog for conversions.
In this section that you get for free with the course, you'll learn how to take email marketing to the next level.
Many bloggers underestimate other pages on their website other than the Homepage and About page. However, there are hidden gems. One such example is your Resource page. I'll show you what it consists of exactly, why it matters, how it can transform your blog income, and how to create and promote it.
The productivity, focus and creative energy that can be found in the early hours of the day can make or break your blogging success. I wanna show you how to create a powerful morning routine that will turn you into a full-time blogger and which will help you get so much done in a short time that you will see progress with your blog and business much sooner.
The course is now open for enrollment with a pre-sale price of $97.
Once it’s released, that will be $197.
