Chloe Spencer, 19, started a blog aged 14. This blog was a Neopets, a Nickelodeon owned game, fan site. The site has been extremely popular and on some pages she can boast over 5,000 comments. She monetizes the site through Google Adsense, taking advantage of her 1st page Google rankings and thousands of daily traffic.
Having grown out of Neopets she hires bloggers to contribute on her site. She is passively earning a five figure sum. Literally earning as she sleeps.
Starting the site in 2006 at the age of 14, she took her hobby and put it online. Once the web-savvy teen monetised the site she was earning thousands of dollars each and every month.
The teenager is a keen blogger on many other sites and is in the process of starting her own fashion blog. She is also a keen promoter of entrepreneurship as a career choice for the next generation.
The teen from Michigan, still has career aspirations of being a nurse, and on the side actress and/or supermodel.
She became interested in web design after her dad gave her a tutorial on Adsense a couple years prior. Her dad who made thousands through Adsense gave her the inspiration to do the same. She realised that Neopets a virtual pet game had thousands of fans and so a fan site can attract a lot of traffic, increasing the potential income she could receive through displaying Google ads.
She had this to say “It’s amazing how success just hits you, especially when you’re least expecting it. I’m so thankful for my dad who helped me up the first few steps of being a young entrepreneur, and for all the wonderful opportunities I’ve had in my life.”
