  • Initial Investment: $3 a month

Blogging can be the best business to start with little money. Some bloggers actually launch their websites for $0.

Kelan and Brittany Kline started their blog, The Savvy Couple, in 2016 for less than $3 a month. “That cost covered our domain name and hosting at the time,” Kelan said. “From there, we grew our blog into a thriving six-figure online business.”

How To Start a Blog

The key to launching a successful blog is figuring out the audience you want to serve, then crafting content geared toward the group you want to reach, Kelan said. “We focused our attention on creating our ‘ideal reader’ and serving them value with everything we do,” he said. “From Facebook posts, Pinterest pins, to the articles we write, everything is focused on our avatar and serving them the best we can.”

This has led many non-scripted buyers, producers and agents to be optimistic that filming on many shows, including a number of big-scale network series, will resume this July and August.

Below, Deadline looks at how shows such as NBC’s America’s Got Talent and CBSLove Island are proceeding, lays out the challenges of returning safely to production and reveals an optimism about development.

NBC has been working through plans for AGT, which returned on May 26. The first six audition shows were filmed before the shutdown and the network is hoping to shoot its Judge Cuts episodes at the end of the month, with modifications, and is planning how to shoot its live episodes. Jenny Groom, NBC’s EVP, Alternative Programming & Development, tells Deadline that the ambition is for the show to run through with no weeks off. “We’re looking at a lot of different options because it’s hard to envision a room full of people packing into the Dolby Theater,” she adds.

Get to know these couples behind some of your favorite Charlotte restaurants

For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health … at home and at work?

They discussed whose idea it was to start a business, what lessons they have learned and how they weather the storms of restaurant ownership together.

While each journey is unique, the common thread is clear — respect, humility, compromise and a giant dose of love.

Jamie Brown and Jeff Tonidandel knew one another while students at Davidson College, but it would take repeated outings with mutual friends where they were “stuck” together for them to finally become a couple. “As time went on, it was literally like the universe was saying … OK, let’s try this again…and again, and again. Eventually we got the clue and began a relationship.”

Fast forward 20 years, and Brown and Tonidandel are some of Charlotte’s most
