Blogging as a Career
My career now is in blogging, but up until this past October, I worked for 11 years as a marketer. Being a part of the mommy blogging phenomenon is one thing, but knowing how mommy bloggers work is another.
While I don’t necessarily blog all about my children here, I do as I am also a blogger for Disney Babble and Them Kids. Yes, some moms don’t like the title mommy blogger, but you know – at the end of the day, it is what it is. Call me whatever you like, just make sure you take me seriously.
Through the various blogs, I have been able to generate an income allowing this to become a career. Being a blogger means you are running a business. This is not something that a lot of bloggers think about, but in order to be a successful blogger that earns a full-time income – this is a business.
