Yep, that title is a bit misleading. To be completely honest, this is NOT about making millions of dollars through a blog. If you do, and this article was one of your sources of inspiration, I would love a shout out! But actually, you CAN achieve millions through blogging. It just depends on your perspective. I have actually reached it – millions of sessions, users and page views. According to my Google Analytics account, since March 2009 (which wasn’t even when I started my blog), I have had 4.5 million sessions, 4.1 million users visit, and 5.4 million page views. That’s a lot of millions! Here are a few points to potentially get you down that path towards “millions.”
When I first started out with my blog back in November 2005, I had no idea what direction it would go, whether it would be successful or not, or if I would just scrap it after a few months. It’s now over a decade later and my site has become part of who I am, my personal brand, and has opened a variety of doors for me along my personal and professional career. It has almost become an addiction.
