Michelle Schroeder-Gardner initially created the Making Sense of Cents blog as a way to track her finances when she had $38,000 in student loan debt. By improving her finances, she cut that down to zero in just seven months. Now she makes over $100,000 every month from her blog. She posts monthly income updates where she discusses how she makes that kind of revenue every month.
