We often take for granted our middle class suburban lifestyles and complain about not making enough money to afford luxuries. Sarah Titus’ rags to riches story is truly inspiring. Her abusive husband of 14 years left her and their kids after his third affair. Sarah and her kids lived in a women’s shelter for weeks as she described it as her rock bottom moment.
Sarah turned to God for support, inspiration and grace. She needed the bare essentials we take for granted. She needed food, income, a home for her kids, and the confidence to pick herself up and succeed in what seemed to be a hopeless dark hole. Sarah needed to earn income fast and provide for her kids.
She had a strong desire to work from home so she could be with her kids and she made it happen because she didn’t relent to pressure to work outside the home. Her first goal was to earn only $1000 per month selling items on Ebay and blogging because she knew they could survive on that. She went on to make $10,000 per month after only one year of blogging writing posts about how to save money. Then, her blogging income went upward to $20,000 per MONTH!
Check out Sarah’s new product: Blogging Binder! It’s 180+ pages to get you organized and reduce blogging overwhelm.
In only one year, Sarah became a six-figure pro-blogger sharing her inspirational success story with other women seeking to work from home so they too can be with their kids. She didn’t give up on her dream and neither should you!
I too did not want to go back to my corporate career and be away from my small children for 10+ hours per day. I turned to blogging to make my dream of starting a successful business while being home with my kids a reality.

How I Scored this Important Interview with Sarah Titus, Pro-Blogger
About six months into blogging, I wrote a post about How to Cope with Losing Friends to Jealousy. Shortly after, I found a comment on the tweeted post from Sarah Titus stating it was a “great article to put things in perspective.” She said it helped her. She retweeted it on Twitter! Then she followed little ole me on Twitter and Pinterest (Sarah has 207k Pinterest followers.) She also invited me to collaborate on her “Top New Bloggers to Follow” Pinterest board!
I’m astonished and honored. I then read her post 5 Things a New Blogger Should Do Everyday which discusses how interviews and guest posts are very important ways to generate traffic to your blog. I commented on that post asking her if she’d answer just three interview questions. Expecting a polite no, she said she’d be honored! What?!
I am so thankful for this opportunity interview with Sarah Titus! She is a success story and an inspiration to all bloggers.
I researched and carefully considered my interview questions. Without further delay, here is the interview with Sarah Titus, pro-blogger:
1. What is the single most thing women do inadvertently to obstruct their own career success?
2. What are 2-3 of the biggest lessons learned you recall in the first year of blogging that you would tell new bloggers to do differently.
3. How has blogging in general changed since you started blogging? What would you do differently if you started blogging in 2017 instead of 2013?
