About Us

Dreaming of big money months, working from home in your yoga pants, and having time to spend with your family and do the things you love every day.

But that all seems so far away. Right now you’re stuck in a day job, working on your blog whenever you can spare, but not seeing fast results (or cash) coming in.

You’d be happy to just start making a consistent and reliable $1000 per month from your blog.


To share, but you’re stuck when it comes to growing your audience, promoting your content, and actually making sales from your blog.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with many sharp, talented bloggers who simply weren’t doing as well as they could have been because they were missing the online sales piece.

You CAN learn the skills it takes to sell your products and services and create the consistent, reliable income you want.

I’m Brett Helling

To date, I’ve made over $1 million blogging in niches like pest control, baby, music, painting, and a bunch of others. In addition to building income producing blogs for myself, I help people like you copy my proven formula and make consistent reliable income online so you can work at home, be your own boss, and spend more time doing what you love (just like I do).

Before I made over $1 million from blogging I had a normal 9-5 job as an accountant.

I would fight traffic every morning, come into the office and pour myself a cup of nasty coffee and then sit at my desk to do the same thing every day.

It wasn’t until I mastered blogging I was able to escape the 9-5 grind and achieve financial freedom. Now I work when I want, where I want, how I want with no boss and plenty of time for friends and family.

When my blog income surpassed my day job income and I quit my job, it caught the attention of my friends, family, and co-workers.

Ever since then, more people have been asking me how to successfully blog, so I came to Successful Blogging to help new bloggers shorten their learning curve, so they don’t have to flounder for months (or years!) trying to figure out the steps to success on their own.

When you know the step-by-step formula you need to follow to make money with your blog, you can relax and work one step at a time until you finish. It takes time and effort, but the money that you make once your revenue stream is set up is SO worth it.

The Bloggingtips.com Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit the “About Blogging Tips” page.

Bloggingtips.com was created for you, the reader, and to become an authority blog that’s acts as a community for both bloggers, writers and readers to connect with each other.

The blog was started by Kevin Muldon, and first went live in 2007. In 2010, is was sold to Zac Johnson, and sold yet again to Brett Helling in September 2020.

While the site design has changed over the years, the mission remains the same: to help bloggers start, grow, and monetize a successful blog.

You’re probably wondering who we are. Well, we’re experts at blogging. Here’s our story.

My name is Brett Helling, and I’ve been starting and growing blogs for over 7 years.

When I was in college, I signed up to drive for Uber and Lyft as a way to earn extra income during the times I wasn’t studying or working my internships. But I quickly grew frustrated.

Back then, there was very little training once drivers were approved. Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft would onboard drivers, provide them with a few videos that highlighted the basics of how pickups and dropoffs worked, then sent the drivers on their way.

There was very little training, and after a bit of frustration, I launched a website about the rideshare industry. When I wasn’t studying or working for my other jobs, I toyed around with the site, hoping to create something that drivers loved, yet still helped them do their job.

The site ended up growing to 1.5 million unique visitors per month, to the point where I was able to quit my full time job and work on the site full time.

It was during this venture that I learned the amazing potential of the internet, as well as came to the realization that I loved to build things. To provide people around the world with useful tools and information, and for them to continuously revisit my websites, gave me great satisfaction and continued inspiration.

Long story short, the growth of that rideshare site made it possible for me to quit my day job and focus on building my internet company. Since then, I’ve branched out into many other areas, creating and growing websites such as my website about the gig economy, a complete resource for workers and customers in the gig economy, as well as acquiring this site.

At one point, I started and managed more than 50 blogs. Today, I spend my time growing about half a dozen authority sites, some of which average over 1,000,000 visits a month. Now, I want to pass on that knowledge to you.

My Vision For The Site

The focus for the blog remains the same, which is to be a complete source for everything blogging, while compiling a quality team of writers from around the world to share their voice and provide everyone with different perspectives and how to succeed in the world of blogging.

Bloggingtips.com is the culmination of years of research and experience. We will discuss everything from the basics of how to start a blog to promotion, outreach, on-page SEO, link building strategies, growing traffic, and making money blogging online. If you are looking to build a blog, you’ve come to the right place!

Since I’ve taken over the site, it has experienced a high growth. I could write about it, or I could just show you.

Here is a recent screenshot from our Google Analytics traffic:

And another that shows how we rank in search engines:

As you can see, the site has already grown since I acquired it in early September. I plan to grow it even more.

Bloggingtips.com is already a great destination for blogging advice, information, and tips, but now that I am focusing my full attention on the site, I plan to make it THE go-to destination for blogging advice.

Stay tuned, big things are coming 🙂

Happy blogging,
