First thing’s first- I’m pretty nervous to announce this. It takes some serious ovaries to be a new blogger and announce to your readers and the world that you love what you do and you want to make a living from it.
In 2012 I want to make $30,000 in blogging income.
Here’s the thing- since I’ve started blogging, I’ve been the happiest I’ve ever been. My first month in, I agonized over having to pay to register my domain, I was that broke and terrified about starting a blog. I had no idea if I could really make money blogging, and I didn’t know if anyone would read my writing. Looking back, it’s sad to see that I worried over such a small amount of money in the scheme of things, but I couldn’t yet see the possibilities enough to have faith in myself.
There are so many people out there just as broke and terrified as I was. People in debt, people making pennies while they go back to school, people starting over. I have been fortunate enough to get through the lean times without losing my mind. Through the pain of losing someone I loved, going through graduate school and starting over in a new part of the country I had never even been to, much less moving here alone and with almost no money or a job lined up.
If I can help someone else navigate life’s challenges and grow this blog to do so, that would be amazing. I have seen other bloggers write with a servant’s heart and still pay the bills and live a life of leadership, I dream of doing the same.
