Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blogging journey.
Way back in October 2013, a good friend of mine started a little blog on Blogger. I knew nothing at all about blogging, but I was a SAHM at the time and thought “That looks fun! I should make a blog too!” Little did I know how much I would absolutely fall in love with it in such a short amount of time.
Unfortunately, that blog wasn’t really ever going to go anywhere, since I had no idea what I was doing when I first started it. So the following year, in August 2014, I completely shut it down, rebranded and relaunched as Equipping Godly Women and have been busy growing EGW ever since!
Now, I’m a wife, a mother to three little ones (ranging from six to six months), and a full-time blogger. I love it! It’s truly the perfect job for this point in my life.
Do you have any special training?
No, not really. I do have a degree in elementary education, which I’m sure helps, and I started freelance writing right around the time I started blogging, but I don’t have any special training in business or marketing or social media or anything like that. I’ve just learned everything along the way.
How are you monetizing your blog?
Right now, I’m using a combination of ads, affiliate links, sponsored posts and my own products. I do offer consulting and freelance writing services as well, but on a very limited basis. (more…)
