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 selling physical products.
Starting that 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 coaching bloggers – like you – how to start selling products and grow their businesses. There is honestly nothing that gets me more passionate than teaching and seeing the success of my students.
I created an online community on Facebook (join us here!) and where we chat latest trends, insights, and biz tips.
I created this site (GemmaBonhamCarter.com) where you’ll find articles about how to start an online shop, drop-ship manufacturing, blogging 101, growing your audience, and so much more.
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.
