Many bloggers are not blogging full-time and are working another job. I am one of these bloggers. I work as well as I running my blog, so I know first hand how hard it can be to balance life, work and run a blog.
Whether you are new to blogging or have been blogging for a while, it can be difficult to grow your blog and it does take a lot of hard work. Unfortunately, there is not a hidden secret to building a business overnight.
Success does not come overnight, there is no shortcut unfortunately. When I first started blogging I had the goal of collaborating with some stationery brands, for me working with brands I saw leading to a successful blog. A couple of years later and I am now being invited to events and working with some well known brands.
Last year I wrote a post on how to market your blog, it has been one of my most viewed and liked blog posts. I thought I would write an updated version as I have learned a lot more over the past year and a question I am asked quite frequently is how do I promote my blog and increase my engagement.
