What do all of these blogs have in common? They’re mega successful and understand the value of continuing education for their blog’s growth.
They’re also super informative, fun blogs that I regular! 🙂
What follows every successful blogger is a trail of investments made in mastermind groups, online courses or eBooks.
They get that the online world of blogging changes fast and they make sure they’re up to date with the latest strategies. Whether it be through reading a blog post or joining a mastermind group (like the Mamapreneur Mastermind), they’re all about staying educated.
That said, today we’ll be going over a few awesome eBooks that are perfect for new bloggers.
Let’s dive in!

This ebook was written by Carly from CarlyOnPurpose. It includes her strategy to hitting over 200,000 pageviews within a few months – without a scheduling tool. She mentions that she does use Tailwind on occasion for days she knows she won’t be available to manually pin. But she shares how you can essentially increase your blog’s traffic for free!
I came across Carly’s blog when I was looking for info on Elite Blogging Academy. She was in one of the success stories and shared how she was able to make over $5,000 per month from her blog within her first year of starting it.
Beyond inspiring! And her story totally motivated me to buy the course haha. It did cost a small fortune, but the knowledge it teaches is priceless. Not to sound cheesy, but it’s seriously the most intense and in-depth course I’ve ever taken on blogging. And I’m really happy with it so far.
But that’s a topic for another post! lol
Back to the eBook, it goes into the step by step of what Carly did to skyrocket her pageviews and essentially bring up her blog’s income as well.
I tested out the strategies in the book a couple weeks ago and have seen some pretty awesome growth. My blog went from averaging 40 pageviews per day to 100+.
Another cool little plus is that Carly sends out weekly Pinterest tips straight to your inbox. And you’re encouraged to email her with any Pinterest questions you might have.
One of my favorite eBooks at the moment. 🙂
Now I know what you’re thinking – She talks about this eBook all the time!
- Exhibit A: How I Made My First Affiliate Sale On Pinterest
- Exhibit B: How To Make Your First Affiliate Sale Ebook Review
But it’s because the strategy really does work! It’s also one of the best investments I’ve made so far in terms of understanding affiliate marketing on social media.
In this 20 page eBook, Elise gives you everything you need to know about making your first affiliate sale from Pinterest. Not to mention, it’s very affordable for the blogger on a budget.
If you follow the step by step tutorial, you can make your first sale within days to weeks. All from the comfort of your home. I highly recommend going through it once or twice and putting it into action if you want to increase your income this year.
After putting the strategies into practice, I’ve made over $500 in passive income from affiliate sales. Best part is all of those sales came from Pinterest.
I was actually making affiliate sales before I even started this blog. All because I decided to check out this eBook. Pretty cool, right?
Abby from JustAGirlAndHerBlog is the author of this eBook. She teaches you all about building and growing a successful blog. From social media tactics to monetizing your blog, she covers all the bases essential to helping you take your blog from hobby to business.
This eBook is overflowing with knowledge and is one of the best I’ve seen to help beginner bloggers get their blogs set up and on track for success.
Plus, it’s uber-comprehensive and runs at 200 pages. So, though it may take awhile to get through, you can be sure you’re headed in the right direction.
One thing all of these eBooks have in common is that they include action steps or things to consider after each main topics. They encourage you to get out there and make stuff happen!
Which is perfect because that’s the key to making a return on the knowledge you just absorbed.
Overall, each of these eBooks has the potential to change the course of your blog and help it reach the next level.
And personally, they’ve been apart of the process of taking my own blog from $0 per month to over $500 in a month. It may not seem like a lot, but it’s super motivating to see what consistency and investing in your education can bring about.
Applied knowledge is power. And the more you invest in your education, the higher returns you can expect to see.
A couple years ago, I came across a video of Jim Rohn on YouTube. And now I attribute what he said to why I so strongly believe in investing in yourself.
Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. If you work hard on your job you’ll make a living, if you work hard on yourself you can make a fortune.
Boom! Jim Rohn was the best. I definitely recommend checking out a few of his videos when you have some time on your hands. It’ll be worth it – trust me. 🙂
And that brings us to the question of the day! How are you investing in yourself?
