I started blogging around 9 years ago, and I started because I wanted to be Carrie Bradshaw. As it turned out, I can cook, I have zero taste, and I can’t walk in heels. So out the window that went.
I have however had a blog that earns me a decent amount per month , for those last 7 or so years. My first paid post was £30 and a wooden recorder – big time! But, everyone starts somewhere – and it doesn’t happen overnight, no matter what bullshit gurus might tell you.
Occasionally also managing social media for clients, building websites, plenty of design work, and previously launched poetry books and research papers – multi-talented (see – always take on too much, not afraid of a challenge).
However, 80% of my time is taken up by writing content for websites across the internet, and then a little bit of time is spent raising some children (they’re actually my children, not just out here raising random children.)
So, actually as it turned out, the one thing I wanted to do was write, and I now make my living from words, for the most part.
But, you don’t go through almost 10 years of being freelance and learn nothing. If you’re not averse to harsh words, some profanity, and some useful business and growth content, then welcome to TFQ.
