Hi, I’m Mikke!
Hey there, thanks for stopping by!
If you want to learn how to start a blog from scratch and make money online, I’m here to inspire you and help you start blogging the right way.
Trust me, even if you have no experience, blogging can transform your life into the life you always wanted to live!
I’m Mikke, the founder of Blogging Explorer. Until a few years ago, I used to be the person who worked hard, spending more time at the office than having fun.
And although I was enjoying my job, it wasn’t making me happy on the inside. Every day that went by, I was just waiting for the next holiday in the sun.
Then one day in September 2016, I decided it was time for a change.
I had spent enough of my life in a job that was just consuming me. I wanted to work more independently, be accountable for my own work, and see 100% of the bottom line on my bank account.
I wanted to find a new path, a new way of living that would allow me to be free from the perpetual cycle of 9 to 5 every day.
I wanted to spend more time with my family and friends, decide when and where I would work, and for once just be in charge of how I spend my time in general.
At that time, I was learning web design and web development, teaching myself how to build websites from scratch. But I was also reading a lot about entrepreneurship, freelancing, and financial freedom.
I mean, if I could create my dream job, why would I slave away at the office just so that our stockholders would get rich? It just didn’t (and still doesn’t) make any sense to me.
Now, what struck me the most was how people were making passive income online and offline doing what they really loved.
In the next months, I learned how to create an online business, start a blog to make money, and eventually earn enough to be financially free.
In early 2017, I quit my job to become self-employed. Although it wasn’t easy and I made mistakes, I was working really hard every day to achieve my goals.
Why did I start Blogging Explorer?
I started my first blog in January 2017. To be honest, it was all over the place and I didn’t really have a plan in the beginning, being so busy building my website business from the ground up.
Later in 2017, I was making a full-time income only working part-time hours.
That’s when I started investing more time and effort into my blog. I planned a long-term blogging strategy, refined my goals, and quickly started making money with affiliate marketing.
Based on everything I learned with my first blog, I started Blogging Explorer with the idea of connecting with others who wanted to learn how to start a blog and turn it into a profitable business. I wanted to offer tips to get everything set up properly, grow their blog traffic, and generate income.
This is my way of giving back to the online community that has helped me so much during the past few years.
How can I help you?
Long story short: I turned my life around in a matter of months. It was hard work and I wasn’t always loving it. But now I’m making a living from blogging while working as an entrepreneur at the same time.
