I just got back from a trip to Tokyo, Japan, and OH MY GAHD. This city is seriously a dream. It’s such a magical place with a hidden gem on every block. The people are ridiculously nice and I’ve never felt so safe in a city. Tokyo is in such immaculate shape, and I can say I’m 100% sure I’ve never seen a cleaner city.

How I Doubled My Pageviews In 1 Month

15th February 2017

2016 was an amazing year for FITnancials and going full-time on my blog drastically changed my pageviews. I went full-time in November, and as you can see in 2 months, I’ve doubled my pageviews exceeding over 60,000.

I’ve been blogging for awhile, but never took it seriously until November of 2016. Blogging was a hobby of mine and I usually only spent a couple hours a week on my blog. I quit my full-time job and decided to go full-time on FITnancials, and I’ve never been happier.

As a blogger, the learning never stops. Social media is constantly changing and it’s one of the more frustrating jobs I’ve had, but it’s a job I would never give up. I am my own boss at 23, get to travel and see my family whenever I want. I’ve been to 5 continents and counting and have been able to work anywhere in the world. The amount of money I make is constantly increasing and I don’t have to wait for that 1x per year to get my raise.

At the very bottom, I’ve included actual proof of my pageviews from Google Analytics.

Find out how I went from 12,000 page views to 30,000 thousand page views, and now at 60,000 page views per month! Continue reading

If you’re interested in seeing all of my travel posts in an organized setup, you can check it out here. I was an au pair for a short while and wrote a few informative articles on that, as well as spent time at a special needs orphanage in Peru.

So let’s get started with a secret that many of you might not know, starting with #1 below. 

Traveling on a budget is very doable, but there are other secrets and hacks when it comes to traveling cheaply. Find out here how you can see the world on a budget. Continue reading

How To Start A Blog – Beginner Edition

6th February 2017

I’m excited to finally share with you all how I’ve been working full-time at home. I started a blog 4 years ago, and just a few months ago I decided to take the leap and go full-time.

This job has to lead me to so much happiness, a flexible schedule where I get to work when I’m the most inspired and has allowed me to travel the world.

I’ve managed to double, and almost triple my income the past several months, which is why blogging is so awesome. At a regular job, I would get a raise once a year, but with blogging, I get constant raises from my hard work. I’m currently in college and working full-time at a job that doesn’t even feel like a job. I always knew that I wanted to work for myself and help as many people as I could. A blog allows me to do all of this, which is why I often encourage my friends and readers to create their own blog.

A lot of people aren’t sure where to start when it comes to blogging. Creating a blog is much easier than you would think. I’m going to create a step by step tutorial in the easiest way possible. I’ll be covering points that I wish I would’ve known when I started blogging.

First off, I want to let you know that it is possible to make money blogging, even if you are just starting out on your blog. I have many online friends that have just started blogging and are already developing an audience and income.
