So, here:

How to Start a Successful Blog

Seriously? How many of these posts are out there?

It seems like everyone who has a blog that has thousands of followers have posts just like this.  It also seems that they are the odd percentage of bloggers that post their monthly income reports to show staggering amount of money earned just by doing (point 1; point 2; point 3).
So, here I am with my little beginner blog trying to read ALL THOSE DAMN POSTS!! And it occurred to me there seems to be one large mistake that they all make…

HOW DOES IT ACTUALLY WORK?

 

I know that list of this app, or that affiliate program, or that plug in is in fact useful for us to know. But, I want to know how does it actually get you money?  Because the “really good ones” cost money, which i don’t have.



All the helpful tips and suggestions are fab, but I must be daft when it comes to the odd inner workings of blogs, webs and income strategies, because it makes me more confused after reading them all.

I just spent all of last night reading each and every income report for the amazing blog makingsenseofcents, and am in awe of the dollar amounts I see there every month!  There is information about what she does to earn that, but how in the hell am I going to do that?

 

It also occurs to me that the big bucks are being rolled in on e-books and e-courses that teach specifically how to blog, or affiliate market, or whatever else!  Is that the clue?  I don’t really need to worry about how to blog specifically as long as I can sell you a class that teaches you?  That can’t be right, obviously. I mean many of these amazing ladies have been working their blogs for years!  It has to pay off, all that experience.

I know that this (slight) amount of frustration is coming from my impatience…I want to see dollars accumulating!  I want to see responses to my posts and feedback!  I want to see followers!

 

Breath….I am impatient!  So Sorry!!

 

I will figure it out….now I need to understand why I don’t see any ads from the Adsense account I linked to this blog.  Any ideas what I did wrong?  I went through the application, gave the proper web address…now what?

A Cheap Mom’s Guide To Vacationing in Vermont

Vermont, In a Week!

For the third year in a row, my family and I packed up the car and headed down to Vermont for a vacation.  Every year we noticed how expensive this beautiful state is and every year we say the same thing “We should not be vacationing here!”

Well, that may not be entirely true!  It takes careful planning and prep work.  If you are creative enough and happened to choose your time during the warm season, then cheap may be an easier option than you think!

A brave new world

“All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players:

They have their exits and their entrances;

And one man in his time plays many parts.”
