The Joys of Self Employment
Working from home is a blessing, and honestly I am not so sure "anyone" can…
When I first started this blogging venture, it wasn’t something I thought I would really make money enough to live on but I was willing to give it a try and so far it has been paying off both emotionally and financially. Trying to answer that old question “what do you DO for work?” is difficult for me though, you see I was taught that I need to have some elevator pitch but honestly I write and do so much on this blog and write about various other things on my other blog that I don’t think a 15 second pitch is really going to sell anyone on what I do nor explain fully what it is I can offer others.
In all honestly, I feel all I offer is an honest, personal, sometimes silly, usually positive story about what’s going on in my life but when you tell a perfect stranger this they give you the head tilt as if “why would anyone want to read about YOU”, because you know I am nothing special – just another human being who happens to be a NH Mom Blogger.
Usually if someone asks what it is I do for work, using the terms Marketing, Social Media Consultant or Freelance Writer ring a bell with them faster than a NH Mom Blogger. The term NH Mom Blogger sits well with me and it’s a term I much enjoy using because after all that is who I am and what I have become in the past four years. It is time, however, to step up my business a notch and push further and become more than I am now. I am excited for the new year and hopefully this New Year I nail SEO and get a major boost in traffic for something other than my awesome giveaways I host.
So how do you answer this question about what you DO for work?
Happy New Year from this NH Mom Blogger to you …..
