Are you curious about starting your own blog as a means of creating an at-home income stream for yourself?
Whether you’re a full-time worker looking for a bit of extra money to play with, a stay-at-home parent who is hoping to contribute financially without having to leave their kids in care, or anywhere in between – a blog could be your golden ticket to achieving this!
But getting started can be overwhelming. There is a lot of guesswork. It can be hard to find your feet in this ever-changing industry.
Let me help you!
I began blogging for fun in 2006. A few years later, I noticed a few bloggers that I loved were actually making money from their blogs! I was curious, and decided that one day I would love to have a lifestyle blog that earnt me money.
Fast forward to 2016, and my lifestyle blog Her Happy Heart was born.
When I began Her Happy Heart, I had recently become a stay-at-home mum. I felt I finally had the time to dedicate to blogging, and I really wanted to explore some ways of making money from home while pumping out inspiring, authentic content that I believed in, and that would benefit others.
I loved writing – that was the easy part for me. I had a vague idea that a Facebook page and an Instagram account for my blog would help me promote it. And I knew that if I pinned pictures from my blog post onto Pinterest, I would start getting my posts in front of people.
So I started doing those things, and do you know what I got?
I can’t tell you how frustrating it felt to pump out quality content, only for nobody to actually see it.
So I began seeking answers to my low traffic woes.
And I learnt a WHOLE LOT. It was probably the biggest learning curve of my whole life.
It took a lot of trial and error. A lot of really good online courses, and a lot of really useless ones. A lot of advice from fellow bloggers who were a few steps ahead of me (you will learn this about the blogging community – everybody wants to help each other succeed). A lot of banging my head against the wall, and a lot of thinking “I will never work it out.”
But one day, I did.
Today I earn a regular income with my blog. Not a full-time income equivalent yet, but I am confident in the steps I need to take to get myself there.
And I am confident that I can help you get there too!
My blogging journey has given me a real heart for beginner bloggers. I absolutely love meeting up with new bloggers to show them the ropes, as well as established bloggers who need help with their promotion strategies. I am also available to audit existing blogs, and even Pinterest accounts.
If you love the idea of making money as a blogger, check out my affordable packages below, or email me to discuss the idea of a custom option.
Please note: consultations are for Perth residents only at this time, and will convene south of the river between the Cockburn/Success – Rockingham areas.

My blog audits take into account:
- Legal requirements for bloggers

- Optimisation of promotional opportunities
This is available to anyone with a blog.
“I got my blog audited from Klara and it was EYE-OPENING! Klara broke down and explained where I was going wrong (and right) with my blog and how I could best be serving my audience. She gave me actionable steps to take that helped me boost my traffic, improve SEO and even comply legally (a biggy). I’m so happy I got the audit done as I felt so aimless whereas now I know what to improve on and how to grow.” – Renee Shaw of This Anxious Mum
Pinterest is often a huge element of my blog promotional strategies as its potential is almost unlimited. If you have been through either my Beginner Blog Consultation, my Blog Promotion Strategy session or one of my Pinterest workshops, I will audit your Pinterest profile and help you set it up for success.
This audit service includes:
- Feedback on your profile
- Feedback on and suggestions for your boards
- An in-depth audit of 6 of your recent pins
Please note: only available for those who have participated in a Beginner Blog Consultation, Blog Promotion Strategy session or one of my Pinterest workshops.
