13 Helpful Facts You Can Pick Up From Blogging

Once all that was out of the way, I started doing the only thing I knew how to do for sure; something I'd done even as a kid at my parent's kitchen table: WRITE .

I have been known to spend too much time on the computer. The phrase my husband tells me is "unplug yourself." But it's important for bloggers to spend time with their family. It is easy to get swallowed up by your blog and all the work it takes. I sometimes consider it job. I sometimes would rather be at home trying to make money by working on the blog instead of being at work. Coworkers do not always understand what I am talking about when I talk about my blog. Maybe only other bloggers can understand blog talk. So this is how I structure my post-work blogging time. ...more
