What’s uppppp!

I’m Gemma Bonham-Carter, and I’m PUMPED that you landed here on my site.

So, who am I and what’s this all about?

Well, I started a home decor and lifestyle blog in 2010 called THE SWEETEST DIGS. My husband and I had just bought our first fixer upper home and I wanted to share our renovations and updates with friends and family. Little did I know that I would fall head over heels in love with blogging…

After several years, I started to monetize my blog and tried all kinds of different things to turn it into a profitable business.

After a lot of trial and error, I figured out a path that worked – I grew my readership, monetized with “traditional” methods (ads, sponsored posts, and affiliate marketing), and also launched an online shop on Etsy selling physical products. Starting a store was what really helped me turn this passion project into a legit business. Suddenly I had turned this side hobby into a real business, making over $50K a year in revenue.

I spoke at a blogging conference and was asked all kinds of questions about the business of blogging. I answered them… and the response I got both at the conference and in emails afterwards was incredible.

I fell in love with teaching and helping bloggers – like you – start selling products and grow their businesses. I created an online community on Facebook (join us here!) and write a regular newsletter packed with latest trends, insights, and biz tips.

So I created this site, GemmaBonhamCarter.com, where you’ll find articles about how to start an online shop, dropship manufacturing, blogging 101, growing your audience, and so much more.

I have a guide on how to start a blog.

I keep a running list of my go-to blogging resources.

I sell my signature program: Launch Your Shop.

I created my very own Blog Planner that helps you crush your goals each and every year.

Basically, I want to see you succeed. I want to share what I have learned (and continue to learn) over on THE SWEETEST DIGS and dish it all out here. What works, what doesn’t, and how to build a business online. Whether it’s to have a little extra cash for family trips, or to build up an empire, I want to help you reach your goals.
