About Me

Hey it’s me, Edwin!

I’m a 30-something year old dude who somehow fell ass backwards and landed a beautiful wife, an amazing daughter and a six figure income as a full time blogger.


But it didn't start out that way.

Just a few years ago I was flat broke with a family to support. Facing what seemed like a sure failure, I started a blog from scratch.

After failing over and over, I finally found the formula for blogging success. Now, I just win win win no matter what!

Fast forward to four years later and I now have myself a six figure blogging empire!

In the beginning...

When my daughter was born, I had no job, no career and no idea what I was going to do the rest of my life.

I just knew I needed to take action, massive action, and quickly.

With my back against the wall and all odds against me, I decided to dive head first into blogging.

Let me tell you, it was scary!

There was no going back now. I grinded and went through countless sleeping nights, learning as much as I could.

I took my entire life savings (it wasn’t much!), sold all my belongings, moved to an affordable house and cut my spending to zero.

The big breakthrough

I spent what little money I had on blogging courses and learned as much as I could from successful bloggers.


This was my big breakthrough. That's when it all started to click.

Before, I was blogging with no real sense of direction. I thought the more you post, the more you earn. Boy was I wrong.

Once I “got it”, I made an actual blog business plan, created a content strategy, started an email list and finally started making money!

I re-invested my earnings from my first blog and started a second blog, then a third, then a fourth!

Fast forward two years later, and I’m now earning six figures as a full time blogger.

My blogging journey

Year 1: Started a blog, wrote crappy articles, got no traffic. I spent nothing and made nothing. I used the free versions of everything, watched YouTube videos about blogging and somehow expected to be successful. Made $0.

Year 2: I invested what little money I had left in savings into myself. I learned as much as I could, developed an actual blog business plan and began making $1,000-$3,000 per month.

Year 3: Started taking this blogging thing seriously. I took the success I had with my first blog and duplicated it on another blog, and then another. By the time the year was over, I was making over $9,000 per month and had a six figure income.

Year 4: Started edwindollars.com with the intent of helping newbies build and launch their first blog. Later in the year, I created my first course, Launch Your Blog, where I share my step by step system for building a successful blog from scratch.​

Why should I learn from you?

Okay so right up front,  I am not an expert at this. There are other bloggers way more experienced than I am, making lots more money than me.


Here's why you should learn from me though. I have literally been exactly where you are at right now. In fact, I was there just a few years ago. It's so fresh in my memory that I remember just how frustrating it was trying to learn how to start a successful blog.


This is why my teaching style is FUN and in ORDER. This way, we create a roadmap and then follow it all the way to winning!


While I'm not an expert, I do know exactly what it takes to create a successful blog.

I've created lots of successful blogs in various niches including personal finance, relationships, weight loss and marketing. I didn't just do this one time, I did this dozens of times.

Why do you teach?

You might be wondering why I teach others how to launch successful blogs. After all, in theory, the more bloggers there are, the less money there is to spread amongst ourselves.


I don't believe there's a finite amount of money in the world and we're all just fighting for it. Nope, I believe there's an endless amount of money out there for all of us to have.


​More bloggers doesn't mean more competition. It means more partnerships and collaborations!


​Oh, and this whole "helping people thing" is my passion.

What were your biggest mistakes?

Boy there's not enough room to list them all. Here are just a few of my past blogging mistakes:

  • I was afraid to put myself out there. Yep, the hardest step is the first one.
  • I thought this was a get rich quick type of thing. Nope, it was a slow grind.
  • I used the free versions of... everything (I was broke, I had to!)
  • I concentrated on building traffic instead of a mailing list at first.

What's so special about you?

There's absolutely nothing particularly special about me. I wasn't born good at this. That's the biggest takeaway here. That ​​I started exactly like you, with just a hope and a dream.


Along my journey, I developed an awesome rule: Create every day. I put time aside in my day to create something new every single day. Whether it was a blog post or an email, I just built built built.


Somewhere along the way, the blogging gods started raining traffic and before I knew it, I had a successful blog running practically on auto-pilot. After that it was wash, rinse and repeat!


So why did I make it? I think it all boils down to one thing: I believed in myself. I somehow knew I was going to make it all along.

When did things take off... and why?

My blogging income was a flatline. I was using up all my savings and it was quickly running out. At this point, II actually did something crazy. I took what money I had left and invested in myself and my blog. Now that's risky!


Here's what I spent my money on:


1. I took some blogging courses.

2. I upgraded my hosting plan with Bluehost.

3. I upgraded to a premium Wordpress theme.

4. I switched my mailing list from Mailchimp to ConvertKit.

5. I bought Thrive Leads which skyrocketed my email list.​

6. I diversified my income by selling my own products in addition to affiliate marketing.
