Blogging What Defines Success?

Blogging has in my opinion many different levels of success, and that success is different to each blogger, but as blogging has become a bigger and bigger industry many people are entering into the blogosphere believing that success is measured by how much money you can earn.

You may very well blog as a hobby and you are happy that people are reading your ramblings. I read many blogs that… [Read More]

The world of blogging and vlogging entered a new low over the last couple of weeks in my humble opinion. Of course, I’m talking about the Irish hotel owner versus the vlogger. What it highlighted for me was how the nature of the blogging and vlogging world has changed since I first started three years ago.

I’m In Awe Of Full-Time Bloggers

I have total admiration for anybody that decides to blog full-time to earn their living and make it their sole income. It’s a very brave move and one that I’m not sure I would take. However, there were times last year when I could have been tempted to make that leap, but for a few reasons I didn’t. 2017 was definitely an eye opener for me. The opportunities that have come my way have certainly made me at times think that I could do this for a full-time living. Around March of 2017 the opportunities started to arrive in my… [Read More]
