Do you consider yourself a professional blogger?
Well, I might as well be a professional blogger. I spend a considerable amount of time working on posts and getting the word out about every post. There is also a lot of time spent visiting other blogs and building relationships with fellow bloggers.
Most of the time, I plan things, like interviews, photographs or bucket list events, that I could possibly put on my blog. Once or twice, I’ve done a guest post for Scorpion Sting. The posts were more appropriate for his blog. I like visiting his blog. I can curse over there. It’s a different blog from Chasing Destino but there’s nothing wrong with different, right Scorp?
Here is a link to a guest post on his blog:
A Twiztid Interview: 13 1/2 Questions
I don’t get paid. Apparently, my views per day would have to be considerably higher. I do all of the things a good blogger should do. Someday it will happen – I will get views that are through the roof. My friend, Kate from http://didthatjusthappenblog.wordpress.com/ said so and I believe her. Whenever I have a blogging crisis, i.e. blogger’s self-doubt, I talk to Kate about it. She’s like my sister on the blog. I hesitate to say mother because I think we’re too close to the same age. I have no idea how old Kate is really, except that she is young at heart, which is what counts. Also, I’m not going to ask her what her age is, I still have some manners. 😉
Anyway, the point is that I really enjoy working on the blog. So visit me often – either on here or a variety of social media outlets. Bring some coffee or a good joke. I’m flexible.
I will not be quitting anytime soon. This blogging business is too much fun. It really is what gets me out of bed on most days – that and the fear of my kid missing the school bus. I will do whatever it takes to not be in the drop off lane at school.
Visitors are always welcome! This blog is open 24-7.
Full-time, as in everyday? Yes. Professional, not hardly 🙂
Yeah, I think I might border on unprofessional. Why can’t fun be professional. We’re fungirls or fangirls. Or both?
Thank you, again! Those were some sweet words that really touched my heart – and I like to think that I’m young at heart, too 🙂 I think you touched on something that we all face, but it’s great that you are dedicated to having fun while you work towards your goal!
Yay! I’m glad that you approve 🙂 It’s always a fine line talking about age. 😉
Thank youuuu toooo!!! 🙂
I really liked this post holly!! I love your quotes 🙂 I guess after reading this the the question is, which is prob on the minds of a lot of new bloggers- are you happy just blogging for fun or would you eventually like to get paid to blog?
Good question! I am happy just blogging for fun. There are some perks besides money. I get to take photographs, which I really love. I also have opportunities for interviews, music reviews, etc., which I don’t get paid for with money. Sometimes I get a press pass, which is like getting the golden ticket. 🙂
If I get paid down the road, that would be awesome. I’ll blog whether I get paid or not.
Thanks for visiting Mimi. Can I call you Mimi? 🙂
of course you can call me Mimi!! 🙂 it was nice dropping by Holley!
Professional as in, I do it lots and I do it well (I hope)? Yes.
Professional as in, I get paid? Sadly not.
Loving it? Absolutely!
I love the Maya Angelou quote by the way 🙂
She was awesome! The quote really fit in with the prompt. I love it when it all comes together. 🙂
Loving it is what counts! 🙂
