It’s Lau. And today is another Blogging Chat, it is a series where me and another blogger talk about anything and everything and post it here.
Today’s guest is WingedMamaHood. She is a really cool blogger who blogs about her life as a mum and occasionally blogs about really helpful posts. Her links are at the bottom of the post.
Without further or do, let’s begin.
Me: How long have you been blogging for?
Joanne: Urm it’s coming up to 6 months now!
Me: So you started at the start of the year. Was it like a resolution?
Joanne: I guess so! I always wanted to start a blog but I never actually gave myself that last push to pluck up the courage. Well.. I did eventually because here I am!
Me: Which now you’re doing so well with your blog. And especially because you have two children to look after, it takes up a lot of time.
Joanne:Yes! I’ve started making money already which I am beyond grateful for. It’s extremely hard work trying to cram everything into what seems like a 3 hour long day but I’m making it happen💪🏼
Me: Are you on a website or do your own your website? I’m on WordPress I applied for WordAds (Where you get paid for blogging) And I still haven’t got accepted. It’s been months.
Joanne:I started on WordPress! I have recently moved to my own domain. I myself haven’t looked into WordAds but that may be something I’ll have a research about!
Me: I kind of think that WordAds isn’t really worth the waiting. How did you get started on your own domain?
Joanne: I went through the WordPress app itself! I think it’s siteground which I’m with now if I remember correctly.
Me: I’ll look into it. It’s very difficult to start earning money.
Joanne: I couldn’t agree more! The only paid work I’ve done so far is with brands. I’ve managed to earn myself over £100 in the last 2 day compared to £0 in the first 6 months. I guess it’s all hit and miss when it comes to blogging
Me: It is, brands want popular blogs with 1000’s followers that has DA of 40+. I haven’t got paid work with a brand yet.
Joanne: Yes you’re right indeed they do! Personally I don’t have the biggest social media following and I average at around 3k monthly views. Brands are still willing to work with you if you work out a plan between yourself and them.
Me: I’d be very up for that if a brand emailed me back. I apply for many opportunities everyday, i never really get a response back.
I have this one email saying if i want free traffic.
Joanne: Don’t give up! You could find that In a months time 15 opportunity’s come your way in a single week.
Me: That’s the dream, I’m going to keep doing what I do. It’s all so confusing the brand thing.
Joanne: It most definitely is.
Me: I think I will end this post here. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much to Joanne for doing this post, check out her links.
Thank you so much for reading and I will see you all tomorrow.
