You may have noticed that I have been quiet these last few days. That is because after 18 months, I decided to take the plunge and go self hosted.
I feel really lucky because my blog is beginning to earn me a little money. I’m very proud of that fact especially after just a year. My only worry is that with writing or accepting material for other people and companies, my blog may begin to follow a different path to the one I expected or wanted. Posts may not be totally my idea or may not present in the way that I would like them to. I’m very protective of my little corner of the internet!
So here is my dilemma folks….do I carry on and accept all paid work? Or do I take a step back and take back the blog? I am working full-time as a teacher and juggling the two is tricky but manageable at the moment. The extra money is lovely too! I also would not post anything I didn’t fully agree with.
I suppose it comes down to why I started blogging in the first place and what my aims were. You can read about that here
I would love to hear your views people of the internet! In the meantime, enjoy this lovely flat-lay image!
A lot of people nowadays like to devote their time to gardening. If you don’t work outside, it’s a great use of your time, as it gets you outside to soak up the sun, and you learn a lot of new, practical skills in the process. It can also be quite a therapeutic hobby, and it can bring in a lot of food when you do it properly! Because of all this, it’s also an amazing business venture to go down, if you think you have the ability to craft a whole corporate persona out of it! Here’s some helpful tips for setting up a gardening business in your spare time, and how the online world can make even more out of it.
