In my Python freelancer course, I get a lot of ambitious programmers who want to earn money online. Many of them ask the question of how on earth they can generate passive income as a programmer.
Well, the answer is obvious to me—but many upcoming freelancers are surprised by this opportunity. Today I want to share this simple idea with you: blogging.
(No shit, Sherlock!) ?
Blogging is a great business strategy because each blog article is an extremely scalable, passive marketing system that earns money for you as you sleep.
Some articles earn more, some articles earn less.

But how exactly are you earning money as a blogger? Well, I would recommend you sell info products. It’s a one-time investment that earns you money, credibility, and experience. And it’s fun to create! (And, as a coder, you hate the alternative: ads.)
Where to go from here?
