Its been just over 3 years since I became a blogger. And I have learned so so much. So much that I feel like I am constantly telling friends to start up a blog and join me.
Recently I was encouraging one of my neighborhood friends to create a blog and she had quite a few questions. As much as my intentions were to have her come over and help her get started, Phoenyx isn’t making that easy so I wanted to write a few things down to help her….and anyone else that may be researching opening their own blog.
I think when we all start blogging we have a goal in mind and that goal can seriously vary from person to person. We are of course individuals and all have a very different reason for being online. We may be just wanting to connect with others, share a story, expand on a hobby, or the biggie that I hear quite often, create a steady income.
Wouldn’t it be nice to work with home? I know it’s something many people, especially moms, dream of. To sit in our our cushy comfy house, take frequent pee pee breaks in a toilet that is cleaned more than once a month and be here to raise our kids, all while bringing home the bacon.
Cooking the bacon while bringing it home. I kill me.
As someone that creates a full time income from home, I can tell you that while the money can be good, the hours are long, you will never have to be more disciplined in your life to get things done and you do a lot of waiting. You wait for PR, you wait for other bloggers, you wait for trips, you wait for ads, you wait for products to arrive, you wait for sponsorships, you even wait for inspiration. And in all that waiting, if you are any good and take your job seriously, you are out there gunning it every minute. Your pee pee breaks are infrequent, your twitter, facebook, networking and blog lists are long, and you work hard. Nose to the grind hard.
