The world of blogging can feel elusive to those who aren’t engrained in the flow of writing, editing, and hitting publish. But the possibility to increase your visibility as a local business owner or finally share your own voice as an individual OR make money as either is completely present in blogging.
Today’s guest, Erin Huiatt, is the owner of Des Moines Parent and she knows a thing or two about blogging. She purchased Des Moines Parent in 2015 and since then has grown it into a blossoming blog that has become the go-to resource for parents in Des Moines and the greater Midwest. And she’s been able to create a steady income by doing it.
