My story is my family’s story, and our story is about more than blogging or side hustles. It’s about creating the life we always wanted, and remembering what’s most important along the way.
My name’s Dustin, and I run BloggerDad to teach parents how to start and grow their own successful blogs and side businesses.
I’m a husband, dad to twin daughters and a full-time digital marketer based in Phoenix, Arizona.
We recently found out we’re expecting number three in early 2020.
TIME TO RUN IT BACK!
I started BloggerDad to share some of the marketing, blogging, content and SEO knowledge I’ve learned over the years, and to help parents earn back either time or money in order to focus on their families.
I know the struggle of not having enough time in the day or money in the bank to do all the things you’d like.
Now, after more than a decade of blogging and online marketing, I know how the right side business can really make a difference in your life.
Starting and growing websites has helped me and my wife travel, pay for fertility treatment after years of not being able to conceive naturally, and today we have a nice, comfortable home to raise our kids.
I’m not a guru and we’re not millionaires, and we’re still wingin’ most of it as we go.
But I’ve experienced firsthand how having extra income through blogging can completely change the way you live – especially as a parent.
Freedom Over Everything
Today, we have the financial freedom to do things like spend a month of our hot ass Phoenix summers on the east coast instead, where my wife’s brother and niece live.
But more importantly, we’ve got back our time.
To be honest, I don’t care about having extra money.
I care about what that money gives us, which is time and freedom to be with each other instead of working long hours or spending time apart.
If I wanted to make as much money as possible with no regard to anything else, I probably wouldn’t blog.
(I’d climb some fat-cat big-wig fancy corporate ladder or stepladder. I love a good stepladder.)
But I do that because it allows me to balance making good money with quality family time – and cats whenever my wife decides we can invest in a family cat.
Running a blogging side business is all about finding your time-money-family balance, and everyone’s is different.
How I Help Parents
Whether you’ve tried blogging in the past or just started considering jumping in, we’re here to help.
Blogging and the income it’s brought in has completely changed our lives over the last few years, and we’re committed to bringing that same change to other families who know the power of hard work and want to spend more time with their kids (even when they’re being ornery).
Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for more good stuff to come. – Dustin
