I love being a blogger! Every day is different and your inbox really becomes a place of instant opportunity. No two days are the same and I'm so grateful to get invited along to lots of fun blogger events where you get to not only learn more about the brands but also meet new bloggers too. Sometimes though, it can be a little outside of your comfort zone...

HOW I BECAME A SUCCESSFUL BLOGGER

There's no short answer to how I became a successful blogger. I had to resist using air quotations above 'successful' just then because it still feels a bit weird to say that (and surely other people should say it for you?!) but I am trying to own how hard I have worked and how far I've come rather than play it down. I seem to glide between an introverted, humble girl and grandiose Kanye style lover of myself. Never a bad thing I suppose. Anyway, I digress. There's one big thing that helped me on the way to being a successful blogger.

A BLOG IS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS

I just realised my 2 year blogging anniversary just passed without me even realising! Like many other bloggers, I started blogging in January. It's a great time to start as your head is full of ideas after the break from working life. But blogging isn't just a fad or a toy that can be picked up and down when you fancy it - it takes a bit of effort and strategy to really make waves in the blogging world. I know because I blogged very averagely for about 6 months before I really upped the ante and started to see success after putting into place a strategy I had observed from loads of successful bloggers already making a living doing it. Anyway, the reason I'm saying all this is because now I'm sharing what I've learnt, and here's how you can get involved.

My 2 year blogging anniversary is rapidly approaching and there is no way that I would have guessed I'd be where I am, doing what I'm doing now when I first started. It was just a way for me to be creative and indulge my passion. But I've seen that it's a pretty amazing way to kick start a new life for yourself (yep, this post might be fromage heavy, but it's true)!

Have you ever sat and thought about starting a blog? 

Do you hear yourself talking about it to your friends and then never actually end up getting started? Maybe you feel like there's a lot to learn or you'd run out of ideas... All things I thought at the beginning too. Which is why I've started hosting free webinars (live online classes to any tech newbies) that share what I've learned about starting a blog, and how to do it RIGHT the first time.

THE NUMBER ONE REASON MOST BLOGS FAIL

I see blogs that arrive and then disappear or lay abandoned ALL the time. It's really a shame because honestly, blogging isn't and shouldn't be hard, but it can seem that way when you don't know the very specific reasons that can lead to blogging failure. Fundamentally I believe there is one very distinct reason that blogs don't succeed, and once you know what it is, it's actually pretty easy to rectify. So what is it?
