Bonus: One thing that has had a huge impact on my life and happiness was starting this blog. This blog is a source of income for me and my family. It started as a way to make extra money and grew into a full-time income. You can read our latest blogging income report to see more about how bloggers make money. Even those that start a blog as a passion project to share with others have found that it helps with their own happiness and also those they are sharing with.
