As promised, we are going to focus on how to monetize your blog in January.
One of the first lessons you must learn is that your blog is your business. It is a reflection of you, whatever YOU is. Whether you are a review blogger, a Mom blogger, an Etsy owner, or a small business, the only limit that can be placed on your blog, are the limits you place on it yourself.
Envision your blog, not as it is today, but where you see it one year from now, five years from now or even ten years from now. You must be able to see it as how you want it to be, not how it is, before you can actually attain it.
I use a vision board as my inspiration. It reminds me of my goals and aspirations. Below is a picture of my first picture board. Sorry for the poor quality, for some reason I couldn’t get a clearer picture.
The board shows just a fraction of how I see my blog and myself. It’s changed as I, and my blog, have grown, I’ve let go of some ideas and added others. By doing so, its helped me keep my focus on what I want out of my blog. Its a powerful motivational tool, a visual reminder of what can be, because a dream cannot be realized if it cannot be visualized.
Surround yourself with powerful and uplifting reminders of all that you want your blog to be! It all begins with a step, take yours today.
