I started blogging in January 2012. A few months in I got very discouraged with my dismal numbers.
One morning while throwing a pity party for myself in my laundry room saying “God why would you have me do this if it is not a blessing to my family, nor does it seem to be a blessing to others, perhaps my time would be better spent else where”.
When that small voice said “several of your friends just finished spending thousands of dollars and thousands of hours for years to get the job that they want, why do you think you can do it on a $100 budget with 12 to 20 hours a week spent and only several months under your belt?”
Which is when I started thinking differently. That day in my laundry room I enrolled in “Blogging University” a 4 year degree program that requires 10 to 30 hours each week on a budget of $100 to $2000 a year, depending if I go to blogging conference, or get a professional blog redesign, or do nothing but renew my domain name and web host.
