Welcome to jakobstaudal.com! I'm honored that you're taking your time to read through my website. I know it's nice to have a face to go with the words, so this is me.
My mission with this website is to show people just like you that it's possible to make a living online through what most of us know as blogging. I wouldn't call it blogging. I'm more a fan of the word content creator. Because that's essentially what I'm doing. I help people find, do, and learn stuff through my blog posts.
If it's your first time here, I know all the information can be overwhelming so I created this page to help you get started and get the best out of my site.
Step #1: Get to Know Me
I want to make sure that you know who I am, what I'm doing, and why I'm doing what I'm doing before you read any of my blog posts. It'll make things much more fun and personalized. Did you know that I'm a huge fan of traveling and that my girlfriend gets a much nicer tan than I do on vacays? Damn you, croat genes!
Head over to my about page to get to know me. I'd love to tell you how I got to where I am today, and why I decided to pursue a life filled with fun, traveling, and horrible jokes instead of a 9 to 5 jail cell.
Also, it'd be friggin' awesome if you reached out to me through my contact page and told me a thing or two about yourself, what your goals are, and maybe how I could help you get there. I'm all ears!
Step #2: Be Part of the Community
Apart from writing thousands of words each week for this blog, I'm running a super cool newsletter (at least I think so...) where I send out 1 email every month packed with things I find interesting, behind the scenes techniques of how I make a living online, and links to awesome new tools that you might find useful.
It's completely free and you can join it by:
- Filling in your email in the newsletter field on the homepage
- Hitting the Subscribe button in the bottom-right corner
My newsletter is where I pull back the curtains and showing you what's working and what's not when it comes to building passive income streams. Give it a try.
Step #3: Don't Save the Best for Last
By now I've already published 70+ blog posts ranging from how to start a blog to more traffic aquiring posts such as the best clan names or what the difference between a blog and a wiki is. In other words, navigating the posts can be quite the hassle.
How to Get Started?
To get the most out of my blog (given you've already subscribed to my newsletter), I want you to read these 3 blog posts first:
- How to Start a Ghost Blog: The Definitive Guide (2021)
- 13 Essential Tips to Write Amazing Blog Posts That Turns Heads
- How to Make Money Blogging: The Definitive Guide (2021)
They'll teach you the basics of blogging and what to expect when building your first passive income stream. Because you won't build a profitable income stream in a month. It'll probably take 6+ months before you receive your first paycheck.
If you're subscribing to my newsletter, you've probably seen the case studies I sometimes do. People tend to see an increase in traffic when they're passing their 6th month of blogging. It's a long-term game and you'll have to stay patient.
What to Do Next?
Well, that's something I'd like to ask you. Are you ready to take action and start building passive income streams for yourself? Are you ready to produce content instead of only consuming content? If your answer is yes, then what are you waiting for? Take a day out of your calendar where you sit down for yourself and really focus on starting that first passive income stream.
If you've got any questions along the way, you're more than welcome to hit me up and throw me all of your questions. I'd love to chat about your upcoming projects and see if I can help out a fellow content creator (not blogger, remember?).
