Gemma Hughesweb developer + blogger
empowering bloggers + entrepreneurs to thrive online
I believe your hobby blog can be so much more
Hey blogger, my name is Gemma and I’m a blogger just like you. In 2017, I found myself with an excess of free time and I finally got to do something I’d wanted to do forever.
I started a blog.
It was a hobby, but I quickly learned that blogging could also be a second income. All around me were successful bloggers, making absolute bank from their amazing blogs. I wanted a slice of that pie.
As a web developer, I knew I had the skills to build a blog. What I hadn’t realised was that blogging, real and successful blogging, is so much more than just buying a domain and starting to write.
That whole first year my blog made me zero.
Not one to give up easily, I persisted. I sat down and created a plan, a blogging formula that would drive traffic to my blog, grow my withering email list and provide me with foundation that would allow me to share the knowledge I learned with people just like me who don’t have a clue where to start.
These days, I maintain my blog alongside my day-job. My goal is to empower other bloggers who are stuck like I was to grow and thrive online, to turn writing as a hobby into a powerful online side-hustle.
