Working From Home: My Thoughts and Advice

There are many times when my friends on Facebook ask about my working from home. They love seeing how I get compensated to try new things, to cover events and to simply write working from home. It’s difficult for me to push working from home in any way other than simply being honest. What I do, I have been doing since 2006, granted the majority of what I do to earn income started in 2008. With that being said, this is no quick income money making business, there involves a lot of hard work, many late night hours to meet […]

Thoughts That Come to Mind While Being a Blogger for Near Five Years

In most of my blogging I am pretty open and honest about all of what I have to say, but that doesn’t mean that I “tell all”.  You see, based on experience, once you put something out there in text for someone to revisit or bring back up in a cached or saved version of text, you cannot take it back. There are some things that you simply cannot try to hide or take back after the fact. That is why, while being a blogger, I have been forced to be somewhat honest when asked about certain things because if […]

This means all of my knowledge I have inside of my smart brain is going to waste, well my positive attitude won’t let me think it is truly going […]

What Do you DO For Work

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 […]

The Decision to Start Taking on Clients

Last year I was running my 2-3 blogs, writing on other websites, running my virtual assistant business and juggling three kids with my youngest being home full time. This was difficult, but it was what I had to do to survive financially. After evaluation of end of year gross income, I realized that I could “live” off of just my blogs income.  Granted, I wouldn’t have a lot of extra funds for play money and I would have to be much smarter in the area of budgeting my finances, but it was possible to cut out my virtual assistant business […]

Where Can Bloggers Make Money?

I always dread this question, “well how do you make money blogging” or “where does your income come from on your blog?”. I mean, it’s a valid question they aren’t asking me how much I make or anything but still it’s rather difficult to explain where I make my money on my blog because there are so many various areas of my blog that make money for me. Every little bit of revenue on my three blogs {one blog isn’t updated often and it’s a Blogspot blog but still brings in a little revenue} adds up! I use Outright.com to […]
