So what is a starting a mum blog really like? Tough. It’s not a walk in the park by any means. It’s hard to start earning a decent wage straight away. I took it slowly and starting earning 18 months in. But I was also working full time at that moment.
In this post, I want to share everything about what it’s like to blog. The brutal truth. I know that sounds a bit harsh, but I’ve seen quite a few bloggers in the time I’ve been blogging give up or take a step back. If you want to earn a decent wage you have to put hard work in. It’s that simple.
I’ve been blogging now for 4 1/2 years and consider myself an established blogger. I’ve used the word established as I’ve got myself known to PR’s in the blogging world. In fact when I went to a blog conference earlier this year my name was recognised. It honestly made me take a step back and think yeah that’s me, all the hard work is paying off.
These are a few pointers to give you a start on blogging
You need to be in the right mindset- you’ve got to want to do this for yourself. You need to be focused and have your ultimate aim or goal. Is it that you want to publish a book? Start an e-learning course for customers, or maybe like me you want to earn enough to support your family. Working towards a goal is key to growing and surviving. Blogging is a very competitive area so you need to have the drive to succeed.
