At Press Publish in Portland next weekend, we’ll be ending the day with two panels — one about book publishing for bloggers, and one about going pro with your site. Our Going Pro panel will be made up of Erick Prince-Heaggans, Ariel Meadow Stallings, Kathy Cano-Murillo, and Kelly Bejelly.

These bloggers have all made the transition from personal bloggers to professionals whose websites are their business. Between them, they’ve done all the things tied to monetizing a blog: selling advertising, doing sponsored posts, getting paid to write for bigger outlets, running a store on the site,

working with brands for promotion, creating product lines, and even running a multi-city expo. This brain trust knows what it takes to be successful and wants to help you get there. In a few years, maybe it will be you speaking on this panel!

As you think about wanting to make a living with your site and related opportunities, what questions do you have? We’ll try to answer as many questions as possible during the session, so tell us what you want to know! Questions can specific or broad, whatever you think would be helpful in your journey to success.

Ask away!


    1. Once our pilot events in Portland and Phoenix have passed, we’ll be deciding where to go next. If you are subscribed to the blog here, if we announce future evnts, you’ll be the first to know if we are coming to NYC!

  1. Hi – thanks for this. Would like to know if any of these folks have had experience with publishing content on their blogs that they then wanted to later repurpose and publish elsewhere…I understand sometimes this is allowed and sometimes not, that it “depends,” but curious if anyone’s had experience with this. Thanks! – Bill Pearse
