Welcome to episode 12 of This Is My Side Hustle, a podcast that discusses how to make more money, how to start a business, online marketing, lifestyle design, and optimization of your life in the present and for the future.

In this episode, I share several monetization strategies for bloggers and various methods I use to make money from my blogging efforts.
