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, let me back up for a sec and start at the beginning. I started a hobby 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 did #allthethings to turn it into a profitable business.
After a lot of trial and error, I figured out what worked – I grew my readership, monetized with “traditional” methods like 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 brand, making over $50K a year in revenue.
Blogging became my full-time gig.
A little while later, 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 and creatives – like you – how to grow their businesses. I get SO damn excited teaching and seeing the success of my students.
I created an online community on Facebook (join us here!) where we chat latest trends, insights, and biz tips.
This site is packed with 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, girlfriend.
I want to share what I have learned (and continue to learn) in this world of blogging and online entrepreneurship and dish it ALL out here. What works, what doesn’t, and how to build that dream business.
Whether it’s to have a little extra cash for family trips, or to build your 6-figure empire, I am here as your mentor and cheerleader.
