As The Decision Is Made To Start A Blog.. The Saga Will Continue!
Have you ever noticed that when it comes to how to start a blog, everyone has their own opinion. ‘
I mean you can literally speak with about 10 people and get 10 totally different opinions on how to get it in.
I was actually on a plane to Miami back in January. I was sitting in my seat.. finally catching my breath, ready for take off.
It kind of sucked as I had the middle seat.. yet hey.. you got to get what is available when you wait last minute to get your flight.
So I’m sitting there.. and the lady on my left is real talkative. Which is cool.. I mean I’m kind of talkative. And then all of a sudden as I’m looking at her talking..
Ok.. yes I just said looking at her.. cuz I’m not going to sit here and lie to you and say I was listening to a word she was saying.. lol.
All of a sudden she asked the question, “What do you do?”.. Now yes there was a pause.. as it took a second for what she said to get to my brain as I was just
looking at her not really listening.. lol. I reply with, “Oh.. I’m a blogger”. Now little did I know that the lady sitting on my right was listening to all of this and…. At that moment,
she chimes into the conversation with.. “Wow.. I’m a blogger too”. Now here is where it gets kind of interesting… now I’m all ears.. listening to everything.
Well even though I didn’t know this lady.. I’m expecting to learn something.. even she just start a blog.. I’m always ready to learn (yes that was a nugget.. smile)
Ready To Start A Blog… Well Pay Attention
So now the lady on my right and I are getting to know each other.. and the lady on the left is still listening in.
The lady on my right is a fashion blogger.. and come to find out.. she has been in the game for YEARS!!
Not only that.. yet she is one of the top 3 bloggers in Atlanta!
We were both on the flight heading to “blogging” events. Now here is where it got real interesting.
We pulled out our iPads and started pulling up our sites.. Now I also pulled out my notepad, as I knew it was time to get some notes from this lady.
She started talking about all she was learning about traffic and tracking and marketing.. which I pretty much knew about.. yet I listened as if it was the first time I heard the information. See you have to know when to humble yourself so that you can get the information you know.
She talked about how she blogged multiple times a day. Something different from what I was taught about how to start a blog.
She shared about all the opportunities that have come her way over the years all because she made the decision to do something that others simply were afraid to do.. or refused to do.
She shared the sites of her partners with me.. told me a few things about placing ads on the blog.. told me how to get free stuff as your blog grows.
Now this happened in January 2014. In May 2014.. I received a box of free goodies.. because I opened up my mind about what blogging can do for me..
It was amazing how different our perspectives were when it came to how we discovered to start a blog, even though both of us started for the same reason….
And INCOME!! Yes MONEY!! Yes Mooollla.. lol.. If you want to make some extra income and get free stuff then Click Here and get your Viral Blog now.
By the end of that conversation I had a new friend in the blogging world..her name is Tami.. you can see her site at TalkingWithTami.com .
