How My Blog Started
I started my blog Blended Life Happy Wife because I had been writing on Facebook about the ways I had been using online sites and Apps to earn gift cards and cash from doing online surveys, watching videos and completing small tasks. Many of my friends and family expressed an interest in what I was doing and suggested I should teach a class. While that was an interesting suggestion it didn’t really fit my personality. Instead I decided I would start a blog and share the information that way. I started writing my blog and found that my blog veered more towards what my Blended Family Life is like versus the money making tasks I was doing. So even though it is still a topic I will continue in my blog I would consider my blog to be more of a Family/Parenting Blog. My Blended Life makes me a very Happy Wife.
The Two Pieces of Advice I Would Give to New Bloggers are:
Don’t get overwhelmed. There is so much more to blogging than I expected .I was overwhelmed by the process and several times wondered if I had gotten in over my head. Patience helped me get through those feelings.
Be true to yourself. Write from the heart and tell your story, not the story you think people want to hear. Only then will you continue to be inspired. If you are trying to do what you think other people want you will lose focus on the reason you began blogging in the first place.
