I love blogging!! After all, it’s something I’ve been doing since 2009. There are very few things in my life that I’ve stuck with for that amount of time. But just recently, I’ve discovered a new found love of blogging and it’s been an exhilarating experience. Here is what I am really enjoying about blogging at the moment.
Winter Blogging versus Summer Blogging
Until you blog or rely on good lighting for your work, you will never appreciate truly appreciate the light nights of the summer months. In the early days, before I really took much notice of photography lighting principles, it didn’t really matter to me. However, now that I aim to perfect the limited photography skills I possess, you’d be amazed at just how much I have to rearrange my working days during the winter months to find the best time for shooting pictures. I’m always disappointed when something comes up and I miss out on the best hours of lighting for that day. The summer time is much better! I like my pictures to be bright and light, so the summer season offers endless opportunities for me to capture the perfect shots!
The Freedom to Create Your Own Niche
You will often hear bloggers talking about niche. I talk about how to create your own unique niche in my course. Having a blogging niche is important, but the wonderful thing about blogging is that you have the freedom to create your own niche that suits your own content style and interests. In many industries you either “fit” or you don’t. But the beauty of blogging is not fitting in, and instead being completely unique and wonderful. Your niche and the type of content you create may evolve over time – that’s normal. It doesn’t have to be perfect and all decided from the moment you launch your blog. However, staying authentic and producing content you’re passionate about is important.
The Friends You Meet
I’ve met so many amazing friends and acquaintances through blogging. And I know that when I say this, I’m not alone. I know many bloggers who have met friends, partners and business partners through blogging. When you first start out blogging, you can feel as though it’s just you, alone, stuck behind your computer screen. When in fact, blogging has the possibility to be a very sociable creative outlet if only you allow it to be such. Attend networking events, join Facebook groups, and meet other bloggers.
The Opportunities Offered to You
They say that money breeds money. Personally, I’d like to rephrase that to “opportunity breeds opportunity.” As a blogger it is important to network and get your name out there. Once you do, you’ll be surprised at how many new opportunities come your way through the new contacts you make. Networking with other bloggers is useful for this too. I can’t tell you how many times I have received an email from somebody I’d briefly connected with a while ago, for it then to lead on to a paid collaboration. Also, reputation is everything. If a client or agency is happy with your work they will recommend you to others and supply you with repeat projects. Don’t hide away! Get yourself out there and show off your hard work!
How to Turn Your Blog into a Full-Time Career
Do you dream of running a successful creative business online? My professional blogging course for passion-driven creatives is just what you need!
Ever wanted to pursue a career as a professional, full-time blogger? Imagine having time and financial freedom while running a business that you can pack up and take anywhere?! You’ve always fantasised about turning your passion into a profitable business but it’s not yet happened for you and you’re beginning to wonder WHY?!
You’re confused about where you’re going wrong and you feel overwhelmed by all of the information out there and you just don’t know what to do next! The truth is, you have the passion and talent but you just can’t seem to make any decent money from it. You put in the work and effort but your blog traffic, sales and business never seem to grow in the way you’d like.
I know it can be frustrating because I was in that situation before I started to take blogging seriously. I read tonnes of books and took dozens of courses that all claimed to help me double my blog traffic and earn a full-time living through blogging, but I always felt like the authors were holding something back. I completely understand that you are probably tired of spending out time and money on resources that don’t deliver results, but at the same time do you really want to be in this same situation this time next year if you don’t do something to move your business forward?!
