Blogging for Dummies

So when I started this whole blogging escapade it was just a place to vent. An online diary of sorts. I thought my friends would visit from time to time. I had no clue that there was this whole other world full of mommy bloggers or just how huge this social media phenomenon is. In the last 6 weeks I have actually started using my Twitter account, added AdSense & joined MomBlog, bebo, TwitterMoms, digg, reddit, stumbleupon, sitemeter, kirtsy, momlogic, blogher, blogflux, disqus & Tumblr...to name a few. THIS IS A FUCKING FULL-TIME JOB! I have no idea how these women keep up with their blog(s) & multiple profiles. I can't be witty 24/7. I reviewed a book. I am going to review some wonderful baby blankets (more on that later). Navigating the whole "I could actually make money off of my blog" maze is exhausting. However, I have discovered hundreds of amazing women & their stories are changing my outlook on life. One "tweet", "status update" & "comment" at a time.

Isn't it insane? I have got to stop staying up so late! You started a giveaway blog, right?

April said...

Nope right now my blog is basically a rant of my everyday life as a SAHM. would evenutally love to have my blog earn me some extra money but sort of lost on all that! Wouldn't mind getting involved in the whole giveaway/review thing eventually.

That's why I started a blog too. :) And you're right, it's a lot of work. I have a blog affiliate that made me some decent $ for not a lot of work, check the blogging category on my blog for more info.

I added myself as a follower and I'm grabbing your button on the way out.
