I’ve found my blog really thrives when I’m growing in my skills, connecting with others who get the work I’m doing, and pushing myself to try new things and improve my weak areas. I make a point of prioritizing my growth as a blogger, and one of the best ways I’ve found is by learning from other experienced bloggers who’ve mastered a particular aspect of blogging.
You’ve got big plans and dreams for your blog. And with good reason. I love blogging and feel so fortunate to do what I do, connecting with this community, sharing what I’m passionate about, and even earning an income. But that doesn’t make blogging easy — in fact, sometimes it’s downright hard. For all of your big dreams, maybe you’ve felt frustrated, confused, or stuck at times, trying to figure out how to grow your blog, get more traffic, overcome hurdles, find smart strategies, and earn more money.
For a lot of people, being able to make money through something like a blog will probably sound far-fetched. Of course, to achieve something like this, you’ll have to gain popularity, fighting for the top spot amongst loads of other blogs. This will be a long journey, with most people doing it for fun rather than trying to make a living. With this approach, though, it can be impossible to find the next step you need to take when your blog reaches this level. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring some of the common routes which people will take when starting their career as a blogger.
