This part two in how to become a full-time blogger series, which is part of Blogging Basics Blueprint. Last week, I talked a bit about what goes on behind the scenes with a full-time blogger.
I received a few emails following the post asking questions about what it takes and how long it takes to start making money online.
This is not something that can be covered completely in a few posts and my education on this subject has been going on for over six years.
That’s part of why I’m working on Create, Launch and Grow Your Online Presence: An A – Z Blueprint for Turning Your Passion into Viable Income.
This is a course that goes deeper into all the work that goes into turning your passion into money online.
Becoming a full-time blogger isn’t something that happened overnight. It was a long and tough journey.
Admittedly, if I knew half the things I know now when I started, it would not have taken me as long as it did.
Nevertheless, I’m grateful for those early struggles because the experience has shaped me into a fantastic online businesswoman today.
I started blogging because I like writing and a blog provided a place to rant but as time wore on, I started taking it more seriously when I discovered the massive earning potential for a successful online business.
Below are 3 things that have helped me immensely on this journey and I know they will help you too if you decide to embark on this journey:-
3 Things That Helped Me Become a Full-time Blogger
- I became a lifelong student. I never stop learning. I’m always up for updating my skills and knowledge in the ever-changing online world. This is imperative to stay competitive and has saved me thousands of dollars. Instead of hiring someone for every little thing, I am a mostly self-sufficient businesswoman.
- I love my subjects. I love writing about hair care, beauty, health, fitness and several other topics. Passion for your subject (s) will help you go a long way.
- A can-do attitude. The words, “It cannot be done,” don’t compute successfully in my head. It can always be done. You just have to learn how or find a way for it to get done.
When my income started showing real promise at the beginning of 2014, I began making plans to leave behind my 9 – 5. I took the big step in September 2014 and I haven’t looked back since.
“Step confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve always imagined,” – Henry David Thoreau.

For the rest of this week and part of the weekend, I will be working on my online projects from the poolside at a short staycation I booked because I needed to get away from my city for a bit.
This is just one of the benefits of being self-employed affords me and I’m grateful I’m able to do this.
