With a zest for celebrity news, Xaviera Bryant started dishing the latest scoop on her blog, Ice Cream Conversations. Soon enough, her lively reports on Beyoncé, Ellen DeGeneres, and Waka Flocka began to gain a loyal audience, and she suddenly found that ad revenues from her hobby equalled what she was making at her day job. That's when she decided to focus on the site full time. "I had a conversation with my husband and I said, ‘You know, I really feel like I can do this.'" She was right: with help from SHE Media, a Google Certified Publishing Partner, Xaviera now uses Google AdSense and Google Ad Manager to earn ad revenue from visits to the site. "Within one year of working with SHE Media, I became a six-figure blogger," Xaviera says. What does her husband think? She hired him, and now he works with her from their Georgia home.
