Learn The Keys Steps To Start A Blog and Make Money From Home

Are you ready to launch your blog and start making money online?

Have you thought about starting a blog but are not sure how to get started?

or do you already have a blog but are not sure how to monetize or generate traffic to it?

I know how you feel because I have been in the same place before and you are not alone.

When I first started my blog I didn't have a road map of how to figure everything out but I wished I did. It would have saved me months of trying things that just didn't work.

After years of learning, I figured out a strategy that has been able to turn my blog into a full-time profitable business that allows me to work from home with my children and pay off a massive amount of debt quickly.

My blog side hustle story has been featured in Business Insider, CNBC +ACORN, and Black Enterprise on how I turned my blog into a profitable business that currently earns over $8k per month. With my blog, I have been able to create multiple income streams and work from anywhere!

What if I told you you can use your skills and talents and create a blog that can help you achieve financial freedom and work from home?

Sounds like a dream?

Well, what if I told you, you can ACTUALLY achieve this!

Does any of this sound familiar?

Creativity shut down. You're currently at a 9- 5 job that doesn't encourage your creativity, but instead mentally and physically drains you.

Researching with little to no results! You've spent countless hours researching how to generate traffic to a blog and still don't have the results you want.

Hustling day in and day out. You've spent countless hours trying tactics such as writing 3+ blog posts a week, guest posting, and commenting on other blogger's blogs, but still have little to no success with growing your audience or reach.

No online strategy. You're not completely sure how to create an effective online strategy that can skyrocket your content online.

Getting burnt out. You feel overwhelmed trying to figure out all the factors that go into starting and growing a blog and have completely burn yourself out.

If any of those factors sound like you,

You’re in the RIGHT PLACE!

I have been there before and I know the struggle.

That's why I am super passionate about helping early-stage bloggers learn the key foundations to growing, and monetizing a blog. When I first started my blog I wish I had a course like this!

I remember the days of feeling overwhelmed in the beginning stages but after implementing a solid business strategy I currently get over 100,000 page views every month.



The Blog To Profit Academy is an all-in-one LIVE course that teaches new bloggers how to turn their blogs into profitable businesses by learning the steps it takes to grow and monetize their content.

This is the same system I used to grow my monthly page views from 20,000 to over 140,000+ monthly page views in 3 months.

It's also the same strategy I use to create multiple streams of income streams with my blog and that now earns over $8k every month.


Hey, Side Hustler!

I get it! You are in the early stages of growing your blog and super excited about getting your genius out there to the world, right?

…But currently, you are not sure how to take things to the next level with your blog, right?

Trust me; I know how you feel because I felt the same way when I started. I didn’t have a road map on how to earn my first $1k with my blog, and it took much longer to learn about the many ways bloggers can monetize their blogs.

Did you know that many parts go into turning a blog into a successful career and many ways you can monetize your blog?

That's why I created the Blog For Profit Academy to help new bloggers turn their blogs into profitable businesses.

After years of learning how to create a solid blogging strategy, I have created 10 income streams and earn money passively each month.

I recently earned over $6k from ad revenue in one month alone from my blog.

"I took away a wealth of information! Latasha's program has given me the knowledge and confidence I need to take the next steps. I had a lot of questions to pose to her and she answered all my emails in a timely manner and was professional, kind, and helpful.
Finally, she offers a 1:1 video coaching call to her students to answer any further questions. You really can't get this type of service with any other class.
If you're a newbie trying to grow your business with social media or currently have an online business that needs a little push to take it to the next level, you should definitely check out the program!"

- Kathleen NG-

Blog For Profit Academy was excellent! So much value jammed packed into it! Every bit of info was useful and helpful. The step-by-step video tutorials on setting up a blog from scratch were excellent.
She also covered how to monetize your blog, which was super helpful. And I had no idea Pinterest is such a handy tool to drive traffic to your website.
Additionally, the SEO lessons were also beneficial. Before this course, I knew barely anything of SEO and was intimidated by it, but I feel much more confident with SEO now.
Plus, Latasha has such a wonderful and warm personality. I highly recommend this course to anyone who needs help starting and growing a blog.

Melissa Lindbloom-

I received so much information and I am still mentally file-foldering the gems shared in the Blog For Profit Academy.
I'm most excited about implementing the strategies shared about blog outlining and keyword research to best attract my intended readers to my content.
I thrive best in an environment built on pre-planning and clear goal-setting, and the Blog for Profit program was so helpful in breaking huge goals and risks down into attainable to-do lists. It offered small steps toward the big leap of operating a blog. I'm very grateful!
Also, it was really beneficial to go through the program individually while having the opportunity to speak with Latasha during the live weekly coaching sessions. I gained greater insight, could hear from my cohort, and ask deeper questions for more understanding.
Having Latasha as a guide throughout the process made those overwhelmingly unknown things so much easier to digest.

Erica Henderson @DancingCurls

The Blog For Profit Academy was filled with so much information! I learned a lot about the legal standpoint of blogging that I would have never implanted before this course. Bringing on different guest experts to teach us more about specific topics was amazing and very helpful. This course is well worth the pay.

Who Is The Blog For Profit Academy Not For?

We will go over strategies to help get your blog to the next level, but it will be hard to see results if you don't put in the work throughout the lessons. While this course will give you information on how to make money from your blog, in order to see results, you have to take action.
  • People who are already experienced bloggers. If you are already making money from your blog and understand how to do keyword research, promote your content on social media for sales, this might not be the course for you. This course is geared toward bloggers who are just starting out with a basic understanding of blogging.
  • Individuals who don't want to put in the time and effort. While you can work at your own pace in the course, it will be very important to implement the strategies from each lesson to see results in this course. If you don't put in the work it will be hard to see any results.
