Creating a blog to travel the world is the dream of so many travelers. There are graveyards all around the world full of peoples blogging dreams. Many people try and many people fail….myself included. However, even though blogging can be a tough nut to crack these days, there are people that are doing it, and teaching others how to find success in the blogging world.
Today’s guest is Alex Nerney the co-founder of Avocadu.com and Create & Go. Alex, and his partner quit their jobs to start blogging just over three years ago and as luck would have it, they had nearly immediate success. Their first month earning, $170, then $900 in the second month and doubling it almost every month after until their seventh month when they hit $40,000 in one month. They had achieved the bloggers dream and now consistently produce over $100,000+ per month.
