As a blogger, there are pretty much always more tasks to do than I have time to finish. There is always something more that I could be doing. I’ve learned that I have to be smart about my time and take advantage of tools that simplify tasks as often as I can. One of the biggest time-savers I have found is CoSchedule. CoSchedule is a social media scheduler and planner that fills the same job I used to hire out to a virtual assistant. CoSchedule is saving me time and making me money and I’ll never go back!
When people find out that I blog for a living most of them assume I have a “real” job too. The first question I get when they find out that blogging IS my real job is “How do you actually make money doing that?”.
I’ve written out income reports in the past, but they don’t give the full picture. I do earn an income through my blog, but blogging has also opened up other opportunities for me because of the skills I’ve learned and the connections I’ve made.
