Congrats! You decided to take the big plunge and blog. Yay you! Or are you still wondering if this is the real deal? Could there be room for one more blogger?
If you have a passion for writing and find yourself still up after the bewitching hour trolling social media, plagued with ideas for a great blog and sporting some crazy bags to work the next day… Then I have a one word answer for you: yes.
Yes, this is the real deal. You can do this!
Yes, there are hundreds of thousands of bloggers out there.
Yes, incredibly enough, there is room for one more.
And yes, there is money to be made or so it seems to this nouveau blogger. That’s right. I’m a new blogger! Surprise! But here’s the 411 on me and why you should continue reading this.
I’m about 60 days in. Blog, social media – it’s all live. I’m signing up for courses left and right. I’m joining Facebook Blogging Pages. I’m down-loading free eBooks. Asking questions to whoever will give me the time of day: friends, kiddos, work peeps, strangers. You get the idea. I’m like a obsessed fan – sponging up as much intel as possible. Why? Because I’m ready to invest emotionally, financially and turn a passion into a self-sustaining career.
Why blab about those “industry” secrets? Why not horde all those great blogging ideas to myself? One. I’m just not like that. In my “day job”, I’ve made a successful career out of sharing best practices. And two, it can be hell-a lonely starting out. Unless your BFF is also a blogger, you’re on your own kid. I kinda lucked out and connected with a successful blogger out there in Twitterlandia. She was willing to DM and give me some priceless advice. So, here I am, not quite as successful her; but, nonetheless returning the favor.
Which brings me to the “Nouveau Blogging Challenge” – follow my journey, blog, social media, etc. and I’ll follow back. Comment on my posts and you’ll find yourself in a two-way conversation. I’ll keep it real and you can learn from my mistakes.
Blogging – it’s not rocket science but indeed highly competitive, so why not stick together.
There are so many options out there, directions to take; it can be very overwhelming, even discouraging at first. I’m here to build build a community of new bloggers. There are plenty of ways to monetize a blog, if you’re looking for a stream of income. Honestly, I’m okay in sharing in the wealth. I believe in karma.
Let’s do this together! It’ll be fun!
Subscribe, join this challenge so we can keep in touch and I guarantee it’ll be the best zero dollar investment you’ll ever make. What’s the worst that can happen? You pick up a trick or two? Make a new blogger friend?
