A very common question bloggers are asked is, “How do you start and how do you get paid”? My answer has always remained the same…Just start! As far as getting paid, I think going into blogging with that being your reason is a quick way to crash and burn. It takes time..lots of time! I started blogging back in 2012 on a site with two friends. We blogged 5 days a week, every week. I don’t think our first dollar was made until maybe 3-4 months in and I believe it was an Etsy shop that made hand painted boards? This was pre affiliate marketing, basically the dinosaur age in blogging. 🙂
It took us a solid 2 years before we made enough to cover some bills and have spending money. I was a single mom at the time. So for me I was highly motivated to be able to afford a life in California! I wrote this post “My Purpose As An Influencer” a couple of years ago and it still rings true. I want to use my voice for good and that is what I try to do. I’ve been blogging on my own for 3 years now and it’s truly been a huge blessing to my family.
I LOVE what I do! I am excited for Monday’s and I love the business side of my brand more than I love plastering my face on social media. It’s fascinating to me! I went from being solo to now having 4 employees who help make Salty Lashes the success it is. I truly think if you want to be successful in anything you do, you have to be ALL IN! Learn it all. Learn when to hire out and learn when to say no!
