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.
Have you been thinking about starting a blog? If you have, you may be a bit overwhelmed by everything that is involved in getting a new blog set up.
The good news is it’s not quite as overwhelming as it seems. Speaking as someone who tends to be a bit technically challenged, I promise, if you want to start a blog, you can do this.
I’ve been blogging for over ten years and, what started as a hobby that gave me an outlet while I was a new stay at home mom with young kids turned into a career that now fully supports my family of 8.
Blogging has been an amazing work at home job for me and there’s so much potential for you too.
Do you have a topic you are passionate about? If you aren’t afraid of a bit of hard work, you can create a blog that will help you earn an income from home while doing something you love.
