An article I read the other day said that many Feminists are going home. They would rather be at home being a mom, taking care of the kids and cooking the meals from scratch, than at the office being underpaid and underappreciated. I wish they all know what I know. They can become a beautiful blogger and make money from home just like me. You can become a beautiful blogger with StudioPress!
Facebook reminded me the other day that I have been a blogger for 6 years. SIX. YEARS.
When I started out there were two choices for new bloggers. You could build a site on Blogger or WordPress.com for free. That was fun and it was easy. I had a site on WordPress.com just for fun and to blow off steam. The one on Blogger was about our homeschooling journey. I posted about the online educational games, the field trips, the YouTube videos, and the real books we found to learn about the world around us. Those did OK with traffic. They were a fun hobby.
Beautiful Bloggers can sell things on their self-hosted site!
When a friend told me I could put a self-hosted site on her server I was amazed. That was like the Big Time. Now I could sign up for affiliate programs. That is where I write about products I buy so you can buy them, too. Then I get a percentage of the sale. It was like cutting coupons without having to use scissors. Affiliate programs are like… getting a discount on things I already buy! The best part is that I can tell my friends so you can get the best stuff, too.
The catch is that you have to have a self-hosted website first. Being a Beautiful Blogger isn’t easy, though. You have to choose a theme. That’s the wrapper of a website. It determines what colors are used where, what kind of fonts, where will the sides be and what will be in them.
There are things called plugins that are kind of like accessorizing your ride. Why have regular seats when you can bucket seats? Why have plain rims when you have gold ones? The problem is that while they are mostly free sometimes they don’t work well or they can break. I was a software developer before becoming a stay at home mom and even this stuff hurts my head sometimes.
Do not even get me started on how important it is to back everything up! I have lost a lot of data over the years because my backup program wasn’t working right.
Beautiful Bloggers use the StudioPress Genesis Framework and Hosting!
I have finally figured everything out and have started teaching my family how to blog. The one thing that got us really making money was using the Genesis framework for WordPress. LJSkool has the FoodiePro theme that goes with the Genesis Framework. Nothing breaks. It talks really well to search engines, especially Google. That means if their robots can search a Genesis framework site well there is a better chance of ranking well on a search page.
It cost me about $90 bucks to buy both the Genesis framework and the theme. It costs another $350 a year for a private self-hosting company. (I have since left my friend’s server after her divorce.)
But you can get the Genesis Framework, and a theme, and self-hosting for as little as $24 a month!

Fast Loading Performance
Get started setting up your StudioPress Site right away on our infrastructure that’s optimized specifically for peak WordPress performance. Site speed and page load times are too important to be jammed on a box with hundreds of generic WordPress installs. More importantly, never face the experience of your site crashing just because you succeed in getting big traffic.
Zero “Hosting” Hassles
Not only do you enjoy superior speed and performance with your StudioPress Site, you also avoid the hassle of self-hosted WordPress, like surprise expenses for bandwidth upcharges, storage, CPUs and RAM. Even as your StudioPress Site remains solid during surprise traffic spikes, you won’t pay extra for short-term success on the way to sustained higher traffic.
Even beyond the security features built into Genesis and the included automatic plugin and theme maintenance, there’s more to protect your StudioPress Site. Our architecture is designed to maximize security and performance — including intrusion prevention, continuous scanning and monitoring for malware, distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, and more.
Advanced SEO Functionality
Automatic Plugin and Theme Maintenance
Getting hacked is no laughing matter, and the number one way bad guys get in is through outdated themes, plugins, and old versions of WordPress. Many WordPress site owners now spend $79 or more every month to have an outside service keep things updated and safe. StudioPress technology takes care of this for you at no extra charge. Opt-out if you want!
