I’ve been blogging on and off now for more than a decade, albeit anonymously. I blogged for myself and didn’t really want to be found or read by anyone, let alone strangers. I’ve also been all over blogging platforms, started with Live Journal, Blogger and a free WordPress site.
I only decided to blog differently when I moved to WordPress and bought myself a domain name. I was taking little steps (hence the blog name), not really knowing what I wanted to do with this, and then I started getting offers to do sponsored posts and collaborations. That honestly took me by surprise, I knew I didn’t have a massive following, but the offers kept coming, so I thought to myself, why not see where this goes?
Then I discovered linkys or blog hops. I do like linking-up, especially since it’s a good way to discover new bloggers and reach out to a wider audience too. I’ve also recently joined a Blogger FB Group, I love the “community vibe” of it, but I’m finding out, that this is hard-work.
I’m wondering now how other bloggers do it, especially the ones who have more than one child, or even a regular job, or are back in school, or taking up courses, and then there’s writing blogs posts and then commenting on other blogs as well. Are you guys superwoman/man? How do you balance all of it? Hats off to you folks, would you care to share the secret with me please?
