Hello everyone! Happy Saturday. This is a bit of a different post for me, as it tells a little bit about my blogging journey. Not many bloggers will tell you things like this, but in the past 6 months my following has dramatically increased (in fact, visits have quadrupled since January this year). And this is how I did it.
The story of Pretty Chuffed started back in 2011, when I was shopping a lot on Etsy and online sales, pretty much exclusively. I had a few friends ask where I bought things, so I thought why not start a blog? I studied communication at uni as I loved to write, so I thought why not keep my passion for writing going by writing about something I’m truly passionate about! Fast forward to three years later and I have been blogging, but rarely. After the birth of my daughter Hannah, I found I had a little more time to devote to window shopping, and as I was receiving no income, I needed to find bargains! I had been following Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily (the website) since not long after it began and as fate would have it, I received an email in January about Secret Bloggers Business – a blogging e-course. Why not? I said, and signed up. Little did I know that decision to sign up would be the biggest single step in my career I have made since I started uni all those years ago. The course was fantastic. I learnt how to focus my blog, worked out how to help my readers kick butt, started a blogging schedule and learnt how to use SEO and social media for blogging.
Now, after completing the course, my blog has changed dramatically – for the better! I have focus, vision and are getting traction with repeat visits and meeting such lovely people (like you!), through the virtual world, every day. And, I’m working towards making an income out of my passion, which is perfect as it allows me to spend more time with Hannah, which is the greatest thing in the world.
Now. Why am I telling you this? Well, sign ups for the Secret Bloggers Business close Monday, and if, like me, you have a passion for blogging, you really must consider the course. You learn from one of the best in the business, Kate of Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily (a six figure website!) and really learn how to treat your blog like a business. Yes, I am an affiliate, but you must know I truly, truly believe in this course! I wouldn’t promote it if I didn’t.
