I’ve been blogging for EIGHT years now. EIGHT. Whoa. This “cute little blog” of mine has allowed our family to take Disney vacations (and take my mom & step-dad!), go on weekend road trips and more. The flexibility in my blogging career allows me to be with my children when they are home sick from school and I’m not penalized for it. I’m able to spend more time with my family. It’s an amazing place to be, and I thank you for supporting it and allowing me to earn a real income from blogging.
When you visit my blog you support me and my business. You support my family! You know how I cheer you on when you get a promotion or you’ve had a long day? You visiting my website does the same thing. Thanks for commenting on Facebook, hearting my Instagram photos and retweeting my Tweets. When you subscribe? I swoon.
Thanks for clicking on the links I share on social media. Your click to the recipe, craft or movie post means a page view. When you click on a related post it gives me another one. More page views = more traffic to my site. This means more opportunities in the long run, because just like your supervisor checks out your productivity at your job, I’m measured by traffic to my site (mostly)
Remember in kindergarten, how they taught you to share? When you love my recipe, craft or movie post so much that you share it? I love it even more! You’re helping others discover my little place on the internet, and helping my business grow. This sharing business helps, especially because sometimes YOUR friends share it too. See where I am going here?
Transparency here. Your visit to my blog means I might make a little money. The ads on the side bars? The affiliate links? When you check them out, and buy things, you help support me financially. So thank you for that. Just like pennies on the sidewalk, it adds up an I appreciate it.
Reading my blog, following me on social media, you may not realize it, but it’s awesome. This is not an easy industry to be in. At times the hours are long and taxing. People don’t take it seriously or understand it. Thank you for being supportive of me and my family. You rock!
