Dear @Emma White,
I am not a Blogger, however, I’ve made enough money to lead a comfortable life. I believe you can make money as a Blogger. There are now more people enjoying reading than ever before and I’m one of them.
Usually, the things that we’re good at, we enjoy doing, which for you is writing. If it were me, I’m not sure I would go about making, selling, or advertising products outside of writing, unless you equally enjoy those tasks.
I would focus on connecting and surrounding yourself with people who have similar interests, that are the leaders in their field. And figure out how you can help others who share similar interests.
Maybe you start by pitching story ideas to the world’s most successful Blogs and publications, in your area of interest. If you land a gig to guest post in front of a huge audience and get to include a link back to your site, where you could offer something of value, like, I don’t know… a free ebook or subscription to your site, it would lead to more people wanting to read your work.
There are many different jobs to do in every business, small or large. I believe you should decide on what task you enjoy most and farm-out the rest. This may be difficult in the beginning as most people starting in business are forced to wear many hats.
As your business grows don’t lose focus of why you started in the first place. The sooner you can relieve yourself of being the bookkeeper, window cleaner, bottle washer or whatever, the better. Do what you love and you will love what you do. So, write, write, write and give, give, give. Giving has a magical way of turning itself into getting.
You already are a success. The mere fact that you are a member of this community, indicates that you are better off than most in today’s world society.
Make your work life reflective of these things and you just may realize effortless joy in your career. I wish you all the success you yearn for and If I can be of any help, just drop me a note.
