Because Life Happens

When Is It Really Time To Go Day 4

Determination is the Key.  Here’s a saying that just ring home to me when it comes to what I need to get  things accomplished.  And as I sit here in front of my computer and type this post, I have no idea when, where and if anyone will be reading it because once published; I can barely find my post myself.

I have been and continue to struggle with this goal for quite some months now, yet, here I sit just typing away on my blog.  Why is that?  Because I am stubborn as hell and I paid for this sh$%% and I need for it to work  for me.  Right now on this Sunday night of day lights saving time I am confessing that I will follow this thru somehow, someway I will make this work!

On Day 4 of learn how to launch a successful blog, the course is all about where does blog info come from.  Michelle of http://makingsenseofcents.com gives the opportunities that are out there for those of us looking to make money blogging.  Below are clips from the course of ways to get paid:

  What ways can a person start making money blogging?

There are several ways to make money blogging. These include:

  • Affiliate marketing
  • Blog sponsorships
  • Display advertising
  • Ebooks
    • Staff Writing
      These options seem wonderful to me except for the fact that I am not fully functional.  I mean that my theme is not cooperating with me and I don’t know what the hell I am doing.  Being persistent has got to get me somewhere.  My days are divided between blogging, crafting (bracelets and wreaths), pinning on Pinterest and posting on Instagram and Facebook and let’s not forget working that other job.
    • Oh my goodness, I almost forgot my main jobs, you know the ones…wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, gees my life is full and I didn’t mention my time to sleep in this list. i-am-on-the-attack 

      As I go thru these sessions and I type these posts for my “blog”, it has helped me realize  something.  That I am just a few hundred hours away from making this a success.

    • Something is going to happen and my blog posts will be readable.
    • I will apply for affiliates and advertising and sponsorships.  And after the first initial 5000 turn downs someone will say yes.  I am very optimistic and very determined to see it thru.
    • I just pray I don’t go broke and my husband doesn’t divorce me thru all of this.
    • Dreaming of tomorrow.

Blogging was something that I wanted for my niece. She never followed thru so I started my own. Nothing specific just a lot of general things that I discuss because Life Happens and I talk about it.

    keep at it! I have no idea what I am doing either and learning as I go, I have applied for several affiliate programs but have not had the time to really understand how to make money with them yet and trying to learn. I say one day at a time and things will come it just takes time. Just keep working at it and everything will be fine.
