The thought of having to work in a job you hate for the rest of your life fills you with dread.

You’d love to do something online, something you actually enjoy doing, something that matters to you and makes a difference to others too.

Most importantly, you want to do something that that will give you the ONE thing a job never will –



Maybe like me,  you want to travel more?

Or you’d just love to work at home to be with your kids.

Retire without worrying about money…

Whatever it is that freedom means to you.

Quite simply you want to be able to make choices  and feel like you’re thriving not just surviving.

Perhaps you’ve thought about blogging for a living. Maybe you’ve even started…


But is blogging even ‘a thing’ nowadays?

What’s the best way to go about it?

What is and isn’t a scam?

Who do you believe?

Where do you start?


The fact is you need to get paid too. How do you make it a reality?

Right now you feel confused, stuck… unsure of how to get there.

Trust me I’ve been there too!


But here’s what I believe:


  • You deserve to have more freedom and be happy more of the time you ever will be in a job.
  • If someone points you in the right direction and you’re prepared to do whatever it takes to change your reality then you will.
  • If others can be successful, building profitable businesses online, then it must be possible and you can do it too.

If deep down you believe this too and you’re ready to step on to the path to freedom my friend, as someone who is already on the road, I’m here to help you on your journey, no matter what stage you’re at.



My name’s Mark Baker.  I’m PASSIONATE about realizing my own online business dreams and goals but I’m equally passionate about helping as many other people get there too, by sharing what I learn along the way.

That’s why I created this site to leave a trail, a map if you like, for others who feel the same way and are serious about achieving their dreams and goals too.

It was my vision of creating some kind of map for others to follow that gave me the idea to call this site, Blogging Map



What Brought Me to This Point?


I’ve had lots of different jobs. I’ve been a school teacher,cruise ship director, pharmaceutical  sales rep, and Corporate trainer, to name just a few.

Some jobs I liked more than others but let me be frank here, I was never made to work for others. I’ve  always wanted more than anything else, to be my own boss, work from anywhere in the world and love what I do.

It wasn’t for want of trying either. In between jobs I tried my hand at many online ventures. You name it, I did it and failed.

My biggest problem?  I never stuck with anything long enough. I was brainwashed by all the online marketing hype about how instant and easy it was.

One of these projects included a blog I created. It was mostly about personal development and life. Although it had quite a following,  it never made a cent, because I had no idea it could or how to make it happen.

Since I was working at the same time, it eventually became too much work and I gave it up.

When I was retrenched from my job in 2017, and into my 50’s I decided it was now or never.  it was time to start a new blog and this time to get it to a point of making it my full time job. I decided to blog about blogging for a living to help others who wanted to do the same thing and that’s when Blogging Map was born.


What Can You Expect Here?


  • I’ll be sharing my journey with you as I go, leaving a trail, like a map that you can follow in my footsteps, giving you tips and suggestions to avoid the same mistakes I made.
  • As I discover the best training, tools and support, I’ll share these with you too so you can shorten your learning curve and reach your goals faster.
  • As I create tools and resources for my own business I’ll share these with you in case you find them valuable too.
  • I’ll be posting reviews of products and services and publishing articles related to blogging I feel will be useful to you.
  • I’ll be updating you on my own progress so you can see what’s possible and what to expect as you journey along the same road.
