I can’t believe its been a month already, wow what a journey!
I decided to write this “Blogging for money’ post. Not only to log my progress but for others to see the reality of creating a blog, with monetizing it in mind.
There is a lot of ‘blogging’ posts out there. Mine isn’t the classic ‘I made heaps of money, here’s how I did it!’, ‘oh and please subscribe’. (Subscriptions are defiantly helpful though haha)
I’m not going to lie, It has been a lot of work! and a huge learning curve in fact.
I’m still surprised by how much I need to do and learn.
I’ve put a lot of hours into designing, niche picking, researching, different accounts, Pinterest, writing and this feels like the tip of the iceberg.
Admittedly I’m loving it! I’m addicted to this process.
I spend countless hours just playing around with plugins and widgets.
Something I knew nothing about a month ago!
Now the answer everybody is waiting for……
(or nobody as traffic is currently an issue sigh!)
I have made zero dollars in my first-month blogging for money!
I am in the red $170.00, that’s what I spent setting up my website plus a few security extras.
I now have a lot of doubts, especially when I see “I made $2000.00 in my first-month blogging” popping up on my Pinterest.
I’m starting to think about what am I doing wrong, is it content, writing, niche, website speed or something I haven’t learnt yet!
If anyone feels like throwing this blogger a bone, find something you like, follow me, pin me on Pinterest, like my Facebook page, and if something helped you please leave a comment.
100% It will make my day = )
For anyone reading, I’m not giving up yet. This girl is a fighter!!!!
I didn’t start this blog to make money, although admittedly something would be nice.
Starting this journey was truly to help pet owners and their pets.
Today’s a tough day in my blogging journey, but instead of focusing on the negative issues. I’m going to remind myself of the positives.
I’ve been learning a range of new skills and some blog comments confirm, I am already helping pet owners! So it’s not all doom and gloom.
At this stage, my plan is to persevere on and review again in one month. Hopefully, my next post is full of happy success’s, finger crossed!
Like said earlier, I am also enjoying this process! I’m discovering that I like writing,( not sure if I’m any good yet), but improving that skill and grammar has been a must for years.
I have a new appreciation for writers and bloggers everywhere.
I now know how much work they are putting in.
I’ll be writing one of these every month. So if you’re wanting to keep track and see how blogging is going for someone with no experience.
Sign yourself up for my email newsletters and new post updates.
Also, every little bit helps a comment here, viewing my page for longer than 30 seconds haha, and sharing or sending something on makes a dramatic difference.
That concludes my first ‘Blogging’ post. I hope you’ll stick around for more, and any bloggers out there got any advice? Please leave me a comment with any helpful tips.
