Are you a blogger who has a dream of working from home? Maybe you feel as if the full time blogging dream is a myth, or you feel it’s impossible to achieve. That was once me. If you’ve been following me for a while then you might of heard my story already. To give you some insight, essentially I am a college drop out who waitressed for 8 years prior to blogging. If you are a waitress then you know how frustrating that job can be. Sometimes it’s impossible to make ends meet. Waitressing was a dead end job for me, with no potential to take myself to the next level.
Before I started blogging full time I was in a lot of debt (but hey aren’t we all? or maybe it’s just me!) I could barely afford my bills and I was lucky to have one meal a day provided by my job. It’s safe to say I lived off of cheap fast food. Now I am not telling you this to make you “feel bad” or to say “woe is me.” I am sharing this with you to let you know that your current situation doesn’t have to be forever. You don’t have to settle for “barely making it by.” I also share my story to let you know that you CAN be successful without a college degree.
I was very skeptical to share my income report for many reasons. One reason being that the income I make is very personal to me and it’s not something I usually talk about. BUT many of you were interested in reading it and I think it will help inspire those who are trying to blog full time. Especially knowing that you don’t have to be a 6 figure blogger to be successful.
CLEARLY I am not a 6 figure blogger. I’m not going to sit here and say here’s how to make 6 figures blogging in one year. Part of me is always skeptical about income reports because bloggers claim to make 6 figures in one or two years with no solid evidence to back what they say up. When it comes to income reports it’s hard for me to believe them.
If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I am all about HONESTY and backing up my words with STATS. That’s exactly what I am going to do. I don’t make 6 figures blogging yet, BUT I do make more than any job has paid me in the past. Gone are the days of living paycheck to paycheck.
AND GUESS WHAT? If I can do it, SO CAN YOU.
I’m just a college drop out trying to live a not so perfect life that’s PERFECT for me. I don’t need to make 6 figures to feel successful. So don’t feel defeated if you don’t make 6 figures your first, or even second year of blogging. It’s a VERY HARD goal to achieve. With hard work and consistent strategy you will get there.
Disclaimer: I am not sharing my income report as a way to brag, it’s for informational purposes only. I also use affiliate links and you can read my full disclosure here.
What to Keep in Mind When Making Money Blogging
1. The income you make isn’t the income you take home
Just like any job you need to pay taxes. (yuck I know) I am glad I knew this beforehand because if I didn’t, I probably wouldn’t have been prepared. All the money you make from blogging needs to be recorded and accounted for.
I use Paypal business to collect most payments. If I use an ad company like Mediavine, they will send me a form at the end of the year to use when filing my taxes. Most companies will send you a form at the end of the year to use.
You should also look into quarterly taxes. This will save you from any late penalty fees etc. It’s a huge topic that I am no professional at. I suggest looking into talking with a Tax professional when filing to make sure you are doing things the right way.
I also like to save 20%-25% of each payment I receive to be sure that I have enough saved for taxes. Sometimes I will over save which is great because it’s like I am receiving a tax return! WOHOO!
2. Don’t compare your hard work to others
This is something I am trying my best to get better at. It’s so easy to feel envy when you see another blogger talk about their income and how much they are making. “Oh, we started blogging at the same time and you are making 6 figures already?! Really?”
Honestly, don’t hate and don’t let the success of other bloggers make you bitter. Instead keep your eyes on your own prize and keep working towards your goals! Let the success of others inspire you and push you that much more. Because if they can do it, so can you!
AND LIKE I SAID, you don’t need to make 6 figures to be successful. Heck, if you are paying even one bill with your blog, that’s pretty freaking awesome! How many people do you know personally who can say the same?! Keep killing it!
3. It’s hard work to make money blogging
I am not going to sugar coat a damn thing. You know how I am. Being able to make a full time income from your blog is soooo much work. I laugh when people try to tell me otherwise.
Sure, everyone’s journey is different but there’s no way (me personally) I would be making money from my blog without spending hours everyday working at it. ESPECIALLY in the beginning! You can’t just post blog posts and hope for the best. There is marketing strategies and so much more that you need to implement in order to make blogging full time actually work. So ask yourself, can you find the time to dedicate yourself to blogging full time?
4. It’s not a get rich over night thing
If you are looking for success overnight you will not find it here. Yes you might see titles like “Here’s how I made 6 figures blogging in 6 months” that screams ALERT ALERT to me. Unless there is solid proof backing that sentence up, I am not believing it.
A lot of bloggers will exaggerate to sell a product or to increase their views. (I get it) you can take from it what you want. Personally, I am only believing you if you got proof.
You can’t go into blogging wanting to make 6 figures right away because it’s almost impossible. I have been blogging for almost 3 years and consider myself to have a pretty engaged audience and I do not make 6 figures. I have goals to get to that point but not there yet.
However, everyone’s journey is different. Just be careful what you believe is all I am going to say about that.
Alright, so now that we got all that out of the way. Let’s dive into my blogging income!

6 Months Into My Blogging Journey – Income
I started my blog the end of April 2017 and I had made my first $1,000 + month in October which was about 5-6 months after starting my blog.
The next month I was able to make $1,600 + and this was when I started to really believe in my abilities. As a full time waitress and college drop out I wanted to make this work SO BADLY it hurt.
Now at this time I was still new. I wasn’t selling products or offering services. I relied strictly on affiliate marketing. Keep in mind this is only my stats from Paypal. There are other programs I used that would direct deposit into my account that I am unable to show.
For example: Amazon. They direct deposit to my account, same with ShareASale. This is just showing income from Siteground affiliate payments (the self host I use) and other affiliate programs that I am a part of that use Paypal to pay.
I have tons of helpful affiliate marketing posts here:

How to increase affiliate sales during the holidays
2018 Blog Income
When I started my blog I went in with a business mindset. A lot of people say NOT to go into blogging wanting to make money because you’ll feel defeated when it doesn’t happen right away, BUT I had a goal. I came across blogging because I was at my breaking point. I was depressed, couldn’t afford my bills and felt trapped in a vicious waitressing cycle that I couldn’t break free from. So, YES I did go into blogging with the mindset that I wanted to make it my full time job. I actually think having that mindset helped me grow quicker. I wasn’t messing around.
Want to know something insane? I never once hired a blog coach or bought an e-course to teach me anything. I spent my nights after long doubles staying up until 4am researching and teaching myself. I have always been a self-learner. When I say I was determined. WOW I was determined.
In 2018 my blog really started to bloom and I couldn’t believe it.
Here’s a screenshot of my 2018 blog income:
Again, I had made more than this because not all payments go through Paypal, but also keep in mind this is BEFORE taxes. Needless to say I still wanted to pinch myself. I couldn’t believe that I had doubled my income.
As a full time waitress I made about $25,000 a year give or take. It was difficult for me to survive on that income. Being able to double my income by blogging was insane to me. It still doesn’t feel real.
So what did I do to get to that point?
Well for starters, I had an incredible start to the year because I launched my very first e-course. Also known as “Pinterest with Ell“, you all know how much I swear by Pinterest, it increased my blog traffic from 5,000 monthly views to now 80,000 monthly views most months.
I was extremely nervous for the launch of my e-course, afraid that no one would care to buy it but I was wrong. I ended up selling over 200 courses the week I launched!
You can read all about how to create and launch a digital product here.
I launched that course in February I believe but didn’t get paid out until a month later which is why my income for March was incredible at over $7,000
On top of that, I also started offering Pinterest managing services. Adding these 2 sources of income helped increase my overall blogging income. And of course as my blog and facebook community grew, so did my sales (product + affiliate)
In 2018 I was working with brands but I was not getting a lot of “sponsored” payments because my following was still under 10,000 on IG. I could have been more assertive but brands always have some kind of an excuse to not pay. I still felt lucky to be able to receive free product.
I still recommend pitching and trying to score brand sponsorships if you can, but many bloggers who make a full time living strictly from sponsorships have over 20,000 usually more followers on Instagram. It’s a tough market but it’s still possible so don’t give up.
Want to learn how to pitch to brands? Check out this post.
I didn’t make $7,000 consistently every month. The average monthly income in 2018 was about $3,000 a month give or take.
That’s one thing to keep in mind, ESPECIALLY in the beginning. Your blogging income can fluctuate. I had $7,000 in March because I had a pretty successful product launch the month before. I can make more if I want to add on more clients, increase my prices, try out new affiliate programs. When it comes to making money blogging you want to use as many income sources as possible that make sense for your brand.
2019 Blogging Income
If you didn’t know, even though I made over $40,000 blogging in 2018 I was still afraid to quit my waitressing job. Blogging was still new for me even though I was making a steady income, I always had fears. I wanted to make sure I had saved up at least 2 months worth of bills before I quit my waitressing job.
January 2019 I officially said goodbye to waitressing. It felt SO WEIRD. I had waitressed pretty much all of my “career” and not having to wake up and go to a job I hated, felt AWESOME. I had a weight lifted off my shoulders and a new sense of purpose.
I was afraid that my income wouldn’t be consistent, especially since I didn’t have a second product to launch for 2019, BUT to my surprise, it was consistent.
Here is a screenshot of my 2019 blogging income (and the year isn’t even over yet!):
I have reached my 2018 income and I still have another month and a week left of 2019.
Even though I didn’t have a new product launch I did increase my blog traffic A TON which allowed me to join Mediavine. This was a great income addition! They do direct deposit so that income isn’t included in the screenshot.
I also had awesome growth in my e-course sales and affiliate income (shareasale especially)
You can see there was a dip in my income around the summer time. DON’T panic when your sales or blog traffic dips in the summer, it’s pretty normal.
The beginning of the year is usually always successful for me because of all the holiday affiliate sales the month prior. I am telling you, take advantage of the holiday season as a blogger!
My best months in 2019 were February and March making over $5,000 each
This was when my blog traffic really started to spike which meant more sales. My Pinterest really started taking off more than ever before.
What about blogging expenses?
Most income reports I read have a lot of blogging expenses, ESPECIALLY ADS. I notice a lot of the 6 figure bloggers spend a lot of money in ads. Here’s another shocking truth, I don’t do ads.
I have done a handful of Instagram ads and they never run well so I don’t bother. I have also spent maybe $30 this year trying out Pinterest ads.
I just never get good results with ads so I don’t bother. I instead focus on personal connections.
HOWEVER some expenses I do have:
Tailwind: $119 annually (Pinterest scheduling tool)
Siteground: $300+ a year for hosting 2 sites. (new blogs they start at $48 a year)
Stock Photo Membership: $99 quarterly
Instagram giveaways: $100 a month give or take.
Teachable: $39 a month to host my e-course
Canva business: $15 a month
What I Learned Blogging Full Time?
1. Some months are better than others
I’ll be honest, some months are better than others and that’s okay. Blogging income is consistent to a point, but sometimes you will make less than the month before and that shouldn’t discourage you. Instead think about what you did differently that might of had an affect.
Maybe it was the summer and people were busy outside and on vacation? Maybe you had a great month prior because you launched a product? Or perhaps you just had more traffic the previous month which lead to more affiliate sales!
2. It’s exhausting but fun
I won’t lie, making an income blogging is EXHAUSTING. It’s a lot of hard work and rarely do I give myself time off. The best part for me though is that I actually enjoy it. I don’t mind working on my blog and business because it’s FUN for me.
If you don’t have a passion for it, it’s going to be really hard to stay dedicated. If you aren’t consistently showing up, your results might not be what you want. I went in with a business mindset but I still make sure to be real with myself and audience.
3. You can’t rely on one source of income
For me personally, I can’t rely on one source of blogging income. Maybe in the future. I need to have multiple sources of income coming through at all times in order to make my full time blogging income.
Focus on affiliate marketing, creating a product, offering services on something you’re good at, pitching to brands for sponsored posts, growing your blog traffic to make money with ads. Your options are limitless! I am constantly spinning my wheels to think of new ways to add to my income.
4. Just because another blogger makes more than you doesn’t mean you aren’t successful
I can’t stress this enough. We are so hard on ourselves that we fail to appreciate how far we’ve come. If you are paying even one bill with your blog income, that’s something to celebrate! You don’t need to make 6 figures, and you don’t need to make $40,000 to be successful. Making money blogging is hard and if you are generating any sort of income through your blog, be freaking proud!!!!
5. Protect your blog
When you start making money on your blog it’s important to make sure you are protecting your blog legally. If you don’t have a privacy or disclosure policy I recommend getting one! I use this bundle from a blogger who is actually a lawyer. I always recommend her bundle! She also talks about 3 legal blogging mistakes that bloggers make in this interview.
6. Consider self hosting
If you have been wanting to make money blogging and you aren’t self hosted yet, it’s worth considering. I used to use the free and premium version of wordpress and I was extremely limited! Switching to self hosting was when I started to see an increase in my income.
If you want to read why I chose to self host my blog you can check out this post. If you are ready to make the switch then I suggest Siteground. I’ve been with them for almost 3 years and they have always provided amazing customer service and fast server speed which are crucial for me!
7. Find your tribe
If you don’t have your tribe yet, it’s not too late to get one! I’d be lost without my Boss Girl Bloggers. They are a huge reason as to why I am able to do what I do. Having an engaged audience is an important factor when it comes to making money blogging.
Here’s some helpful articles:
How to grow an engaged audience
How to create and grow a successful Facebook group
How to grow an engaged social media following
8. Before you quit your job, save
You never know what can happen when it comes to blogging. I always recommend having at least 2 months worth of bills saved before you officially quit your job! It’s better to be safe than sorry.
What are my goals moving forward?
In 2020 my goal is to reach 6 figures blogging. That has always been the ultimate goal. It’s not as easy as people make it look.
I hope to create another product, score more paid sponsorships from brands I love, and hopefully offer more services!
I break down 6 ways to make money blogging in this post that you might find helpful!
I hope this post helped you and you are feeling more confident moving forward! Remember it’s not about the 6 figures but rather the accomplishments you make on your way to 6 figures!!
Maybe you read this and thought I was making more money, but nope! I have been blogging for a little over 2 and 1/2 years and this is where I am at! Remember if I can do it, so can you!
Would love to hear from you in the comments, let me know your 2020 blogging goals!
Until next time!
You are so inspiring Lauren – seriously. I have been following you since the beginning and you have always been my motivation to keep on going with my own blog. Thank you so much for this post! x
Thank you so much Tegan for always supporting and being here since the beginning! Means the world to me!
BB Dreamhouse says
This is really inspiring to me. I don’t trust the bloggers that say they earned $5,000 in their first month. It just doesn’t make sense. I’m still in the start-up phase, and I think it’s really impressive that you are making thousands per month. I appreciate your blogs and assistance with Pinterest, and I love your honesty about how much work it is to get where you are. Great job!
So glad you found it inspiring thank you so much! And I agree with you completely which is why I wanted to put this together and share!
Modern Joy says
Greal post Ell! I am trying to up my traffic and monotize better with my blog. You give me hope! Congrats on all your hard work paying off ❤️
Thank you so much that means a lot to me! You will be there before you know it! As long as you keep going! You got this!
This is really inspiring and just goes to show blogging isn’t dead like most people claim.
I hope I can get to this stage or at least somewhere close soon.
Exactly! Thank you and you will!
This is amazing! Thank you for sharing! I low key follow you everywhere and you have taught me so much already. I cant wait to take your courses 🙂
Thank you so much Tina! That means a lot to me!
This is such an amazing and super helpful post, Ell! I love how honest and detailed it is.
You are proof that with hard work and determination anything is possible ??
I’m in a similar situation atm, I just recently started a blog with the intention of turning it into a business. I used to have a blog when I was 13 but didn’t enjoy that topic anymore and didn’t really have time for it so I quit. Then this year in July, during my summer break, I decided to start a new blog and be serious about it. As I’ve learnt a lot about blogging from my first one and really enjoying it. Also, I’m currently in uni so I wanted to be able to make some extra money so my parents didn’t have to pay for everything as being in uni is so expensive (even though uni is free in my country there are lots of expenses like rent and food and books etc)
Anyways keep up the great work and good luck with your blog . I can’t wait to see you grow and do amazing things ❤️
Thank you so much! Love your story too! You can do anything you set your mind to!

I love that you are honest, but also give really helpful tips! It’s inspiring, yet realistic! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much! That’s what I strive to do!!
This is so interesting and informative! I love reading blog income reports. Thank you for sharing!
Thank you so much!!
This was really helpful and inspiring, thank you! x

Thank you so much Charlotte!
Thank you for sharing this, Lauren! I always appreciate your willingness to be real with your audience. Back when I started blogging in 2018, your blog was a huge resource for me. I have barely blogged since, but I’m feeling called to get back to it. Even if I could earn enough to pay the monthly payment for my student loans, that would be amazing and huge weight lifted while doing something I truly enjoy.
Thank you so much Jessica! You can always go back! Blogging can be really awesome and pay off with consistency and determination! I believe it you!

What is your 2019 Medavine Income? I didn’t see it or missed it.
I didn’t share it. I only shared the income I made that went through PayPal. Mediavine gets direct deposited. I don’t know the number of the top of my head but I make usually 400 or so a month with it currently. Still trying to leverage my blog traffic and ads to up that!
Marko Saric says
Thanks for sharing the details and telling the truth Ell! So many sell the impossible dream and people get unrealistic expectations so their blogs turn into failures quickly. It’s important people understand that it takes a lot of time and effort (and some luck too).
Yes exactly! Thank you so much!!
Thank you so much for writing this post. Yours is the most relatable post I have seen on this topic. It feels practical and authentic. I have blogged for over a year, but I recently created a new self-hosted blog and am driven to make some income from it. It’s one of many side hustles I’m focusing on.
Thank you Ashley! That means a lot to me!! & you got this! Can’t wait to see where your blog takes you (:
This was a great post.
And it’s my goal to turn my blogging into my full time gig.
You have great tips here. I will take my time to dissect. I have a quick question.
What is the retirement plan as a fulltime blogger?
Thank you so much Tiffany! For retirement plans you usually have to apply separately for a plan or create your own savings since you are self employed.
This is honestly so inspiring Ell! My blog is still fairly new, and I struggle a lot with consistency. But I enjoy blogging and really want to turn it into a successful business someday!
Thank you so much!! And you will definitely get there!
This post is amazingly informative. Thank you for sharing! I have just started my blog as I’ve moved to a very remote town and need something to keep me busy. After years of blogging, websites and design I’ve decided to start sharing my own self-taught knowledge like you!
This makes me so happy to hear! Thank you!
i am happy for you success, but i have been trying all methods for years, and even have courses that no one has purchased. i loss belief in the online making an income at home and it is really sad. i see so many making good money blogging and it has been my hope and wish for a long time with no success. and yes i have done it all, pinterest, courses, groups, niche finding, keywords, you name i have tried everything. no one ever subscribes either. anyways, i just wanted to make my point
Thank you so much Cathy! I’m so sorry to hear that it has been a bit tough, I know it can feel defeating when you try everything and it’s just not working the way you want. Persistence and consistency got me to this point. Don’t give up!
Kristie Chiles says
I really enjoyed 2 of the many lovely posts you have here! I love seeing other’s success stories and you break it down so well!
Thank you so much!!
Onome Joseph says
Wow, this is so inspiring. I haven’t really made much from my blog since I started it in 2016. I do hope 2020 turns out great. I need to double my efforts and step out of my comfort zone.
Thank you so much! I can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for you!
This is so inspiring! Thanks for being so honest and I think what really inspired me the most was that you built that income in 2018 whilst still working your normal job- thanks so much for sharing 🙂
PS I came here from the Facebook group ?
Thank you so much! I am so happy to have you in my group!
Thank you do much for this! I want to start a blog and have been on pintrest for a month reading every single article I can find and yours is by far the most informative!
Thank you so much! So glad to hear this!
I really appreciate your honesty! Your blog is my source of inspiration and blog tips! I just bought your pinterest course for 2020 and can’t wait to see what this year holds for my blog! You’re the first transparent blogger I’ve come across with realistic tips like save money before quitting my job which is my goal for Christmas 2021 🙂
Thank you so much! That means a lot to me! & I hope you find the course helpful! Can’t wait to see you reach your goal!
Just reading this now in January 2020 and it’s exactly what I need to hear. I want to really focus on my blog that I just launched in December. I absolutely love writing so that helps a lot but I do need to figure out how to monetise it. I’m a stay at home Mum with 3 kids but I feel this is for me. Thanks for all your blog posts, they’re clear and inspiring and written well so thank you.
Thank you so much that means a lot to me! You will figure it out before you know it and it will all come together (:
Kasia Olszewski says
I have been following you for a while and I ‘m so past the point of ‘wanting’ blogging to be my full-time job. At this point, I NEED it. There’s nothing else I’d rather do! I love writing, I love sharing my stories, and I HATE my current job. I have a baby on the way – and that’s only making me push even harder.
But some days I really want to give up – and I wonder what I’m doing wrong. I know I still have some much to fix and learn. My question to you is, what app or website do you recommend for creating pages? My goal for one of my blogs is to create journaling pages, goal setting pages; etc, to sell. It’s been my dream for a while, I’m just not sure where to start.
I love being a part of the BossGirlBloggers – everyone is always so helpful!! Thank you so much for creating this community.
Aww thank you so much! This means a lot to me!! Thank you for being a part of it (: Keeping going and you’ll get there! The biggest tip I can give is keep learning and be consistent with your strategies! As for the pages, have you checked out Canva? They make it super easy to create all different kinds of pages!! Best of luck (:
This post has helped me out a lot. This is the most realistic post I’ve read about doing blogging full time. I just started my blog and I get so nervous about all of it and making money to help support my family. I’m a SAHM but i still want to make an income! This post helped me out. Thank you.
Thank you so much Jerrica! That means a lot to me!
Jeanna Gravitt says
I have been thinking about blogging and started a little bit but man would I love some advice on just getting started.
I have a super helpful blog post on starting and setting up a blog! It’s on this website actually (:
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your honesty in this post! It truly makes me feel like I can pursue my dream of making my blog my full time job! I love that you gave us some background on where you started and you aren’t someone who tries to pretend that you were an overnight success. Your story is relatable and probably more realistic than what people most share!
Blogging does take a lot of hard work but it is totally possible to be successful. I like that you encouraged your readers by reminding them that you are still successful by making any amount of money, not just 6 figures. We all have to start somewhere!
I’m looking forward to being a supporter of your blog 🙂
Thank you so much Taylor! This means the world to me!!
Thanks for sharing a realistic view of blogging for us new bloggers! Great post!
My pleasure! Thank you so much (:
Hi Ell, what’s the app you are using with the screenshots for income? I’m just starting but want to get on top of recording sooner rather than later.
Thanks for your tips x
Hi Kristi! I use Paypal business to collect a lot of my payments so that is where the screenshots are from (:
I like to read well-written articles. It looks like you spent a lot of time and effort on your blog.
I learned a lot from your article and I have already bookmarked and am waiting to read a new article.
keep up the good work!
Thank you so much that means a lot to me!
I just found your blog through a Pin. I have been blogging for more than 10 years but only recently starting making about something people might actually want to read (instead of my travel scrapbook, LOL). It’s been about 11 months and I am still feeling like I have so much to learn about monetizing, which I started in January. I really appreciate your transparency and encouragement in your posts. One question (sorry I have been reading so many of your posts so this doesn’t fully align to income), but I read so much about people building blog traffic through Pinterest and while I have a decent “monthly viewers” number, I have not seen that translate into clickthroughs – and it’s not because my pins are ugly. I mean, some of them could be better, but you know what I mean. Thanks in advance! 🙂
Thank you so much Jenn! Honestly Pinterest marketing is a game changer when you learn the proper strategy! I’m not sure if you saw my Pinterest marketing course but it might be helpful when it comes to learning how to increase those link clicks (:
Thank you for the honesty Ell. Your blog reminds me to stay true to yourself. Many other blog courses give you advice and how to make things look appealing to your readers but don’t change to please others or get followers. I think that’s the whole purpose of a blog, right? People are supposed to know and love you and your story.
Yes exactly! Thank you so much Ashley!
Thank you so much for this! I am new to blogging and still in the learning phase. This is very helpful and I am inspired! 🙂
I am so happy to hear this!! Thank you!
As a new blogger I finding this very encouraging and helpful! Thank you for being brutally honest!
So glad to hear that! Thank you so much, best of luck on your blogging journey!
I really appreciate how candid this post is! Wishing you continued success!
Thank you so much!
Working on starting my own blog and, like you, going in with a business mindset. This was such an insightful read! I love the openess and honesty. Would I love to make $10k in my first month live? Yep. Expecting it? Not a chance. Lol. Thank you for this! I will be checking out all your posts for more guidance!
Thank you so much! I am rooting for you! Don’t give up, you will get there!
I have been blogging for almost 2-3 years but I hardly made any money. Your income report has surely inspired me to work harder and looking forward to achieve such success
So happy to hear this, I am rooting for you!
Great post Ell, v motivating and encouraging !
Thank you so much!
Davondra Alston says
This is so inspiring, I really appreciate the transparency. I’m starting to create more content, and I’m so ready to leave graduate school because it’s not what I thought it would be. My blog and podcast have always been a great outlet for me.
Thank you so much! I am wishing you all the best on your content creation journey! Always follow your passion 💕
I’m just now in the process of starting a blog. Feeling super overwhelmed!!! Thank you for this wonderful article!
I’m so new to the blogging thing. Like, I’ve always wanted to do it, but talked myself out of it because I keep telling myself people don’t care about what I have to say. How do you find the confidence??
