Recent events in my life have transpired and its caused me to rethink my overall game plan professionally. When I began my quest into adulthood many years ago, I planned to go to college, major in Journalism, and become a writer. Not just someone who wrote per se but someone who was paid for their work in print. Of course as a single mother, I had to not only go to college but provide income in order to take care of my son and me. Fast forward to present time, where I have put off my dream because reality bites. Bills need to be paid, so you do what you have to do. Sometimes that is not in your chosen field (as in my case).
I look online and glance and study many other blogs, and I see the potential that a good blog writer has, in growing their portfolio, their brand, and their prospective blogs and websites. I really want to put my hat into the ring as well and see what develops. That is, step out on faith and do something that I’ve always wanted to do for a long time.
When I started The Cubicle Chick almost two months ago, I had a plan but really no way to put the plan in motion. I began posting and I saw what worked and what didn’t, and I looked to others in this area for guidance and vision. What I really needed to know within myself was if I had the wherewithal to run a blog, update it regularly, respond to requests and emails, seek out advertisers and the like. And what I found is that I really enjoy it! How does one go about doing it full time?
I’ve researched and read and consulted and daydreamed and stressed and cried and smiled and laughed and when its all said and done, I know what I want to do. And that is, concentrate on my blog full-time.
So I pose this question to my readers, who also blog as well. Are you a full-time blogger? If so, how did you reach your decision? What should I expect should I choose to go this route? What do I need to do in order to catapult myself to the next level?
I look forward to reading your responses, suggestions, and feedback.
I am ready to move forward….
