Robbie started blogging in 2009 with absolutely no prior experience. A few years later, he was able to monetize to quit his career in corporate marketing to become a full-time blogger and poker media consultant - working from home when he's not traveling to poker tournaments and events around the world. 

In this episode, Robbie shares how he grew his blog from zero to more than 30,000 visitors per month, the three main ways he monetizes his blog, what the best performing types of content are, and how he comes up with ideas for articles. 

He also explains his process for outsourcing work to writers in other countries, how to find online consulting work as a freelancer, and shares productivity tips for working from home with his wife and three kids. 

We also talk about: 

  • How to find time for your blog
  • Tips for beginner bloggers
  • The most popular types of blog content
  • The technology he uses for his blog, like Wordpress
