It’s time to sound off ladies. I’d like to know why you started your blog and what you hope to accomplish with it in the future.
Do you hope to become a full time blogger? Make 1K in income? Have it as a hobby and focus on your “real” career?
I began my blog as an outlet last year. I had just graduated college and I was lost. I decided to halt my job search in order to move except I had no idea when I was going to move or where (long story.)
My first posts (which are private now) where just for me to vent about life. I was slightly depressed and scared about my future. Once I moved to California I stopped blogging and started working at a 9-5 and didn’t have time for my blog.
I eventually decided that the 9-5 life wasn’t for me and that entrepreneurship was. I then relaunched my blog to show clients that I could write and to connect with women who might relate to my story.
It worked for me in that regard because I got clients right away and launched a career working for myself. I had no grand ideas of being a super famous blogger or of making tons of money from my blog.
Now, my goals are different. Clients find me through my blog but I use it to connect with other women even more. I’m using it as a way to showcase myself and connect with a broader audience instead of focusing on people in my city.
What are your blogging goals?
