To tell you that I achieve one of my short-term goals is an understatement. I’ve been blogging for two short years, and I love it! Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a young girl. Learning this blogging world has not been easy but it has been rewarding. Today, I finally received my first cash payment for a sponsored blog I wrote yesterday. I am super thrilled about that!
I’ve written plenty of reviews for various products that were provided free for review purposes, and although it is super fun to receive FREE stuff, receiving a cash payment feels awesome. I did not start this blog with the intention of being compensated, but I did have it in the back of my mind. As a costumer, I read reviews, from people like you or me, before I purchase an item. I believe that reaching out to bloggers to write those reviews and share them on social media is a powerful marketing tool for companies that are trying to get their name out or that are promoting a new product.
I shared the news with my husband and he was happy for me, in his businessman like tone he replied, “well, now you can say you are a professional blogger”. I looked at him with a smile, I know he is proud of me and the crazy things that I do. I will continue to blog for as long as I can. It is fun, I love sharing my opinions with others, and let’s face it, is a way of channelling out all the craziness that lives inside my head.
So read away my friends, feel free to comment, provide feedback and share your own experiences in the blogging world. For now, I will continue celebrating my accomplishment and will keep my fingers crossed that more is yet to come! One happy blogger in this blogosphere.
