It’s now over two and half years since I started blogging. Do you know what? It’s been the best time ever. I’ve found something I know I was destined to do. It’s the right time to start sharing my knowledge. I knew nothing about blogging at the start and learnt so much as I went along. In fact I’m finding that there is always more learning to do when it comes to blogging.
Most people who enjoy writing in their spare time would love to earn money from their hobby, become a successful writer and turn it into a job. However, except for a few folks who manage to sell their stories to publishers, a significant percentage of those individuals will never create a penny income. That is the case even if the writer has a lot of talent. In most instances, anyone who wants to switch career and try writing just needs to think long and hard about the type of content they produce. Unfortunately fictional stories are never going to get as much attention as blog posts on niche subjects.
Considering that, this step by step guide will provide lots of advice about the best path to follow.
Well August was over pretty darn fast wasn’t it? Here we are at the start of September, one of my favourite months. Plus it’s only 16 weeks until Christmas!!!
August was a pretty good month for me income wise. I have read that a lot of bloggers find the Summer months slower and I can honestly say I didn’t find this the case for me.
I have been busy planning my Halloween posts for October and also planning what I intend to do with my Christmas Gift Guide this year. Last year I did a kid’s and a women’s and found it a lot of hard work. This year I’m just planning the kid’s gift guide and I have to say I have some lovely bits already to review ready to go in.
TIP: You can never plan too early so get those request’s out!
Not only does mobile technology have a massive effect on the way that we interact with each other, but also so is social media affecting how we exchange ideas and communicate with each other. As such, it is essential that both of these technologies embrace together and allow us to keep up with our interactions while we are on the go. With so much business taking place on mobile devices, it is entirely natural to embrace your social media and have links to these in your email signature.
Here is my Income and Stats Report for July 2017
I have been thinking for a long long while about posting my income report, I wasn’t sure if it would be welcome. I’m not one to brag either, TBH I don’t have a lot to brag about. I work hard to earn the few pounds I make on here. You see as well as running my blog I work nearly full time in my day job as well, so I try and use my time (the little time I have) effectively.
I learned a lot from Aby’s Project Productivity course on how to bulk tasks in one job lot. For example I plan what posts I have going out in the week and make sure I do all the photos for the reviews and what not in one go.
The other day I passed on my top tips for setting up and decorating a home office, but I didn’t go into much detail on furniture for your office space. I believe having good quality furniture for your office space will make it look professional especially if you have clients come to your home. For me being a blogger it’s highly unlikely, but there are professions such as accountants and advisors who may need their customers to visit them.
