I have been blogging for as long as I can remember. I used to write on a private blog, just as a means to get my thoughts out of my head. Later I decided that I wanted people to read what I had to say, so I blogged publicly, but I didn’t tell anyone who knew me in real life. Now, I have embraced my inner thoughts and insecurities, and I share all of my writing with anyone willing to read it. I have gone through multiple different blogs and niches, and I have finally settled with my favorite. My blog, My Life on a Whim, didn’t come by accident. The name came to me one day, and it fits perfectly. I write about so many different things, that it is literally “on a whim.”
I have read about people who make an amazing full time income from blogging alone, and honestly I have strived to get there one day. I still do, too. I would love to run my blog full-time, while making a livable income. While I might not be there yet, I know that I will be one day. In the year and a half I have been blogging about random thoughts, recipes, and parenting lessons I have learned, I have gained a steady stream of good traffic, and I am proud of that. It has been a slow road, full of ups and downs, but I have learned quite a bit from my first semi-successful beginner blog.
