Hi I’m Edwin, nice to meet you! I’ve been a full time blogger since 2004 and now make six figures a year. But before you think I’m special or something, let me stop you right there.
I once was flat broke, with no job, no skills and no education. I was going nowhere in life – fast.
I started blogging back when hardly anyone knew what a blog even was – me included.
My first blog failed miserably. I thought I was a failure.
Rather than quit, I set out to learn why it failed and what I was doing wrong.
I realized that I am only a failure if I quit.
So I tried again and this time, I invested in myself and my blog.
I took blogging courses and literally spent every dime I had in my savings.
For me, it was now or never. With no job and no money, I went ALL IN on blogging.
The result? Because I believed in myself and did not quit, I managed to not only earn a living as a full time blogger, but to become a six figure blogger!
In the last 15 years, I’ve created dozens of blogs and have earned over 1 million dollars – all through blogging!
Now I’m “paying it forward” and sharing what I’ve learned so you don’t make the same mistakes I made when I was new.
I decided to start a blog in 2004 and it failed. So I started another one, and it failed again. I kept failing and failing and you want to know what I learned? I learned… everything.
Through trial and error I learned everything from how to create and design a successful blog, how to create compelling content, how to get thousands of followers on social media, how to get traffic from Google, how to monetize a blog, how grow an email list and finally how to convert email list subscribers into paying customers.
My reason for becoming a full time blogger was simple – I refuse to ever work for someone else!
The freedom that being a full time blogger gives me is a-mazing.
I work whenever I want, wherever I want!

Why I Started EdwinDollars.com
In late July of 2018 I had an epiphany of sorts. After blogging for so many years about finance (yawn!) I needed a change. I wasn’t fulfilled with what I was doing and suffered blog burnout.
I needed to find my passion and then it hit me. My passion is helping others. My knowledge is making money online. Combine the two and there you have it. It was time to start a blog devoted to helping people start and grow a blog to make money online!
Why Am I Sharing The Strategies Of How To Make Money Blogging?
You might be wondering why I created a blog on how to make money blogging. After all, in theory, the more bloggers there are, the less money there is to spread amongst ourselves.
That is what I used to think. That’s the kind of mentality that was holding me back. I now realize that there is an endless amount of money. It is abundant.
It is also my passion to help others succeed. You have no idea the amount of fulfillment I feel when I help someone. So why do I help others how to make money blogging? Because it’s my calling in life, that’s why!
