In the past few weeks, I have been asked by several people about how bloggers make money. One person was completely shocked to find out that influencers can make a living from blogging! I think it’s important to be aware of the business side of blogging, especially since it has become a part-time or full-time gig for many, so I thought it would be helpful to put together a post informing bloggers and non-bloggers alike on how blogging can be a source of income.
At the beginning of this year, I wrote this post about my health and fitness. I also did an Instagram story and feed more recently that was centered around the same thing so I thought I would do an update. No, I haven’t lost the weight. In fact, I’ve gained some, but I think it’s important to share what I’m going through so others who are going through similar things can feel encouraged to keep striving.
With a 9-5, fashion blog, and newly established jewelry business, I’m often asked how I manage. The truth is…I just make it work, even if that means sacrificing my house (it seriously looks like a cyclone went through it), sleep deprivation, and a neglected husband. These things are terrible, I know, but I want to be completely honest. I’m hoping to correct these bad habits over time and at the top of my list right now is to spend more time with my husband. So important!
I was recently featured in the Style Collective newsletter. Not familiar with SC? It’s literally the go-to for all things blogging and I wish it was around when I first started. It would have saved me a lot of blood, sweat, and tears! With SC, I no longer need to hop around to various sources to get what I need since it’s all in one place. The site and the podcast provide a wealth of knowledge for entrepreneurs and influencers and my favorite features include the blog, blog prep kits, and the e-courses and guides! The community element and forum topics are a huge plus too.
For the feature, I was asked to share a bit about myself and add 3 blogging tips for new bloggers. I thought these tips might be of some value to my audience and I’ve added a bonus tip just for Lace & Pearls readers. Enjoy!
The more I hustle, the more I crave clothing that’s comfortable and functional, so when I had the opportunity to partner with TEMA Athletics, it was a match made in heaven! The clothing from this brand can literally go from day to night with little to no effort. Plus all of the items are the highest quality and are available in sizes XS-3X. What do I love the most? TEMA is all about women empowerment and inclusivity no matter where you are in your fitness journey!
