#BloggerInspiration: Sarah Titus – Homeless to $23k/mo

Glad to be bringing you the second edition of Blogger Inspiration. In this post, I interview Sarah Titus, a successful blogger who blogs at sarahtitus.com and has authored six books.

Sarah’s story is quite inspirational as she went from homeless to earning $10k/month within just a year. Now, Sarah is an inspiration to a lot of single moms and helps them understand the interwebz so that they can earn a steady income online.

As of January 2015, Sarah’s blog was getting a staggering 1.7 million pageviews per month. So, without further ado, I present to you the interview with Sarah Titus:

Interview with Sarah from sarahtitus.com

  1. Hi Sarah,

    you have got more than 300 posts, how often did you post in your first three months of blogging

    and how did you keep yourself motivated? How did you promote your blog when you first started?

  2. My site currently has 622 posts/pages and this is after I deleted over 300 posts a few months ago. ๐Ÿ™‚ Up until two months ago, I was posting every day. There may be a few days here or there where I missed, but for the most part, every single day.

    As for keeping motivated, I’m naturally a very motivated person. When I want something, I don’t usually let anything stop me. I figure it out until I get my way. ๐Ÿ™‚ In blogging, I just want to reach everyone and tell that that they may not HAVE TO work outside the home. It may be possible to stay home with their kids. I think that just knowing that, can really change someone’s life! It’s planting a seed of hope. From there, they take initiative and decide what they want their life to be like. Everything I do on the blog, stems from that idea.

    Looking back, I would say guest posting is the most important way to promote your blog and I still do it to this day. My goal has always been 1-2 guest posts a month. Just be sure to give them your BEST…not a leftover from your own blog.

  3. You also write about financial independence. Apart from single moms, who do you reckon your main audience is, for that category?

  4. My main audience is anyone who wants to stay home with their kids. That can include single moms, but most of my audience is married women.

  5. What habits do you believe every aspiring blogger should develop? How did they help you?

  6. Choose your readers over money…because even if you don’t have to make that choice now, it WILL come up and often. You’ll want to be prepared in your own heart when it does. My goal is simply to help other women, to have a servant’s heart. Always has been, always will be and in the future, the world will see it more and more. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. For the readers of Oziti Labs, can you give a brief outline of your success story?

  8. 7 years ago, I was homeless. My ex-husband abandoned our family. In the divorce, I stood before the judge telling him I thought I could make $1,000/month if I worked really hard, to sustain my family. It was my biggest dream at the time. Everyone in my life, laughed at me. But, I knew. I knew God was behind it and nothing can stop God. So, I set out on a journey to blog and within a year, made $10,000/month. By time I hit 2 years blogging, I was making $23,000/month. I’ve put in 80+ hours a week for the last two years, up until two months ago, in which I work about 10-40 hours a week, but still make the same income.

    I define my success by all the emails I get from readers every day saying how much I make a difference in their lives. My blog currently reaches well over 10 million people every month in some way or another. Perhaps that’s a Pinterest article they see, or a Facebook post. It’s one more person I can reach to show them know THEY have the power to change their life!

  9. For a lot of bloggers, the first $1k per month is one of the biggest milestone. How long did it take you to start making $1000 per month?

  10. 7 months into blogging. I’ve always been an incredibly slow learner, but once I get it and it clicks, I usually fly higher than my peers. In that way, I’m usually the underdog in everything I do. People count me out and then I come out of nowhere and fly. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. If there was only one piece of advice you could give to the new bloggers, what would it be?

  12. Go after your dreams, no matter what. Don’t let anyone, outside of God, tell you that you can’t do something, period! YOU are the only one that can make your dreams happen and no one’s going to do it for you.

Thanks again Sarah for taking your time to do this and sharing your online journey to success.
