About

Back in 2017, I (I’m Maliha, by the way) realized that nothing in life was guaranteed. Not a well-paying full-time job, no guarantee of a 100K per year salary, regardless of what kind of qualifications you had. I won’t go into details, but let’s just say that I had a wake-up call. 

I decided that it was time to build something of my own, something that will be mine no matter what. 

And so, in June 2018, The Side Blogger was born.

Here on TSB, I teach you how to start your side hustle as a blogger, how to grow your business from zero to 1K per month, and then beyond.

I’ll be honest with you, I’m not a millionaire. I only blog on the side, and I only teach what I know. So, if you’re thinking of building your own blogging business on the side after a full-time job, and/or taking care of family and kids, welcome aboard!

Here you’ll learn everything you need to know about creating your own successful side-blogging business, including, how to write, what to write, how and where to start your blog, marketing tactics for bloggers, design tips that’ll set you apart from the crowd, and much, much more!

If you’re ready to start your journey, you’re in the right place! Oh, and don’t forget to subscribe to my email list to get access to all the freebies I have to offer.

Website Info

The Side Blogger is managed with the WordPress Content Management System (CMS) and is hosted with the awesome hosting company SiteGround. I strongly recommend the WordPress + SiteGround combination to all bloggers setting up their website. The website was designed by yours truly, and built with a modified version of the Astra theme and Elementor Pro WordPress page builder plugin. 

I rely on several plugins to help me run this website and provide a smooth experience to my readers, including, WP Rocket for caching and enhancing performance, ThirstyAffiliates Pro for managing and tracking affiliate links, and Optimole for optimizing images.

I use ConvertKit for email marketing and email list building.

Canva Pro is used for designing and creating most of the graphics and other digital collaterals.

You can find a list of tools I use and/or recommend for a more efficient and productive blogging experience on my Resources Page.
