So, what is this blog all about?

I’m glad you asked!

This Online World is a hub of information related to these 3 core concepts:

  • How to make money online and develop passive income streams.
  • How to save money.
  • How to integrate technology and the power of the internet into your life for the better.

Through a mixture of fun money-making experiments, informative posts, case studies, and my ramblings, I plan to explore the world of finance and side hustling and remain completely transparent along the way.

No BS here, or affiliate code spamming. Just fun content and growth!

About Tom:


Alright, so who am I?

Well, I’m Tom, the blogger behind This Online World.

I’m also a Canadian University student from Toronto currently finishing my undergraduate degree in Psychology/Marketing.

I’m also working full-time at a digital marketing agency, and I hope to bring some SEO knowledge to the table and help other bloggers out there grow their blogs organically.

Aside from work and school, I’m a fairly ordinary university kid.

I enjoy spending time with friends, a good house party, and going to my campus gym. I also love to play guitar, read history novels/textbooks, and travelling whenever I get the chance to.

A recent trip to the Dominican Republic…I’m definitely daydreaming of being a digital nomad now!


Part of my goal with this blog is to show other people (particularly college students or young adults) that it is possible to start your own blog or side hustle, increase your income, save more money, and generally improve your finances with just a bit of know-how and work.

I’ve been blogging at This Online World since January of 2018, and it has definitely been a fun ride so far.

In the past few months, this blog has gone from receiving barely any organic traffic to reaching roughly 20,000 people per month (as of September, 2018):

organic-traffic-growth This Online World is gradually turning into a decent source of income as well, and from humble beginnings of $0, this blog is currently making between $200-$300 a month from advertising revenue and affiliate sales.

I know blogging about blogging or blogging about making money online has gotten a bit of a negative reputation over the past few years because people in the industry have lied, exaggerated, or mislead their readers.

However, as this blog continues to grow, I want to remain transparent with all of you wonderful readers and share the tips and tricks that have actually worked for me, as well as what is realistic to expect when it comes to making money online.

So, what can you expect to find on This Online World if you stick around?

Something along these lines:

Hopefully, you might stumble across something that grabs your attention!

I’m always looking to learn, write, and find new ways to make/save money, so I hope you consider joining me in this journey!

I generally publish 3-4 times per month, but I am always reachable by email or on my social media channels if you want to connect and exchange some ideas.

Additionally, if you want to be notified when new posts are published, I would greatly appreciate if you subscribed to This Online World with your email!

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I hope you have enjoyed your time here and consider sticking around 🙂

Looking forward to the adventures that are yet to come!

Tom from This Online World.
