Originally I have posted this look last week but due to the optimization process of my website I’ve lost it. For those of you that follow me you will know that I’ve had issues with my website for the couple of weeks. A lot of you may not have gotten a chance to see and/or read this post so, I decided to post it again. Today I’m talking about the Ups and Downs of Blogging while rocking a rad pair of biker boots!

It’s been very stressful the last couple of weeks, to say the least. I’ve never encountered any technical issues with my website. Being a full-time publisher — my website is my livelihood. So, it’s a big deal for me when my website is down for a couple of weeks. I’ve tried to stay calm and use this time to read which I did but I just couldn’t shake off my nervousness. When you have deadlines for brands it’s of utter importance to keep and execute them.
Which brings me to the Ups and Downs of Blogging Full-Time. I know it’s a privilege to blog full-time, the opportunities are endless and the best part is that you can literally work anywhere. I don’t regret that I’ve quit my corporate job at all — in fact, I would say that starting my own business has been one of the best decisions of my life. However, being self-employed is not for everyone. I get a lot of questions on this topic, so, I decided to share some of my experiences with you. First of all, you need to invest in your business which will ultimately be your blog. Secondly, your paychecks will never be the same month to month, nor will they always arrive on time. Often you’ll have to wait a period of 30 days before you can collect your payment(s) for your project(s), and sometimes even longer. The longest I had to wait were more than two months. This being said, when you are self-employed you need to be very smart with your money. You can’t just spend it all the minute you get paid because you’ll never know what the next month brings.
Are you a full-time a blogger, or do you dream of becoming one? Either way let me know by commenting below! I would love to hear from you!
As always, thanks much for reading and for all of your patience during the last couple of weeks!
