A few weeks ago I received an email from Tanya over at blogelina. She had an awesome idea about how to get 100 comments on a blog post. I signed up, and the rest is history.
I was a closet blogger for almost two years. It’s true! I wrote somewhat regularly, but told no one. I actually did get one follower and a comment or two during that time. My blog has come a long way.
I wonder if anyone else started that way…blogging in secret.
Then I decided to go public. Yep, I took the leap and connected my blog with my Facebook page. That was a scary, exciting, crazy time. I started learning about all the many types of blogs that are out there, and discovered that many people use their blogs for extra income. Some are even fortunate enough to earn a living doing so.
I tried my hand at a few things; ads, affiliate programs and such, but I just couldn’t get away from writing from my heart; writing inspiring, thought-provoking posts. It’s what I do.
I even tried teaming up with a friend who is a savvy/frugal/couponing/shopper-type person but we could never quite work it out.
I want to continue to write about life’s lessons and the things that matter most to me, but I’m not opposed to making a little extra money in the process.
My question for those who have experience doing this sort of thing (and for those who don’t) how do I go about achieving that goal?
All thoughts, ideas and advice is greatly appreciated.
One more thing…can anyone tell me how to install Linky follow tool? I can’t paste it in html. Lost all my followers AND don’t have a tool to replace GFC!!!!
Thanks to blogelina for hosting this incredible blog post/comment thing.
