Hi Everyone! I’ve been blogging for over five years now. (My old site was called In the Garden of Eva, which I thought was a clever name but perhaps misleading since I do not have a green thumb.)
Recently I decided my site needed a makeover, but I wasn’t sure if professional blogging was for me. I don’t blog to make money. I do it because I enjoy it.
But it was an intriguing thought. I live in the DC area, which is ranked the most expensive place in the country for childcare. Not to mention the absurd commute times. (It often takes me 45 minutes to drive 6.5 miles to the school where I work part-time.)
The more I can make money from home while my baby is napping, the better. And besides, wouldn’t it be nice to make a little money doing something I enjoy… and something that I’m going to do anyway?
So I started looking into small ways I could monetize my blog. I don’t expect to make a full-time salary, but some dollars for my daughter’s college fund might be nice.
That’s why this site contains some “affiliate links.”
This means if you use one of my links to make a purchase, I will get a small commission. It won’t change the price for you at all. It’s a win-win!
I will only link to things that I use and recommend. Let’s be honest, mostly it’ll be books. And if you have questions about any of my recommendations, please feel free to contact me!
Lastly, Amazon asks that I tell you this:
“Eva Langston is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.”
Thanks for reading until the end of this page! Would you like to know more about blogging for money?
