Blogging Related Courses to Help You Make Money Online

Interested in starting a blog as a side hustle (or main source of income!) while you’re getting your degree? Here are two courses I recommend and have taken myself:

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing — Everything you need to know about putting affiliate links on your blog, including how much traffic you need to apply for affiliate programs and all the legal requirements.

Stupid Simple SEO — Every successful blogger needs to use Search Engine Optimization (SEO), but you don’t need a tech degree to drive traffic to your blog.

Web Hosting Canada — Every blog needs web hosting, and I highly recommend the company I use to host Online Student Life.

Note: Blogging is a long game, but if you’re willing to put in the time and effort it can be very rewarding!
