1 Thing Everyone Needs to Know About Blogging

“Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.”
Chris Grosser

To say that I am passionate about blogging is an understatement. I adore the opportunities I have to express myself and articulate my thoughts. I have to be honest though guys, talking is not my strongest suit. So when I pull out my laptop I can’t help but feel strong contentment as I share my thoughts with you all.

Okay that was deep but there is a reason I am sharing this with you.

When I am talking with my friends and family we often divulge in topics of personal interests. There was one particular moment where I was talking to my cousin. She had wanted to make baby clothes and get into sewing. It was then that I recommended blogging and the possibility of selling homemade products. I believed that blogging could be used as an outlet for herself; a way for her to share her passions and hobbies. “That would be nice”, my cousin says, “but selling baby clothes online is competitive”.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time I have come across this type of opinion.

If you are someone who is looking to getting into blogging or opening your online business but believe they won’t succeed because it’s too competitive you need to stop and re-evaluate. You will be pleased to know that the online community is vast. There is enough room for each and everyone of us to succeed. If you put in the research, hard work, and learn the ins and outs of the blogging universe you will eventually come out on top. I guarantee it.

I tried to tell her this. But I could tell that she was unsure and, unfortunately, unconvinced.

On our next outing I will try and convince her! But I believe every blogger wannabe needs to know this.

It doesn’t matter how many other bloggers are out their selling t-shirts or giving skincare advice. If that’s what your passion is, just do it. If you persevere you WILL see results.

Thanks for stopping by,

A New Year of Opportunities!

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”
― Oprah Winfrey

We are a few days into the new year and, if you are anything like me, are eager to get your New years resolutions rolling.

Some of you realists may be thinking, “What’s the point? No one ever fulfills their New Years resolutions”… To some extent I do agree with you. Firstly, it can be terribly difficult to break old-time habits. Secondly, why do you need a time of year to start afresh and try something new?

Personally, I find excitement and pleasure out of planning changes in my life. I am sure I am not alone. The New Year welcomes a new beginning, a fresh start and a time to reflect on the previous year and how much you have grown as a person. Consequently, I have thoughtfully decided upon my New Years resolutions. Continue reading “A New Year of Opportunities!”
