During my nine and a half years of blogging, I’ve been asked thousands of questions by other bloggers.
About content, about networking, about selling stuff. I’ve been asked about my success, about my failures, about my headlines, about my introductions, and about the way I choose the photos I place at the top of my articles.
But never have I been asked this, “When were you the happiest as a blogger?”
Do you want to know the answer to that question?
It was when no one was reading my stuff. I had just discovered blogging. I was happy to be a beginner. I was punching the keys, and it was all about fun. No one was reading my words, and I wasn’t expecting anyone to read them.
Then I kind of got lucky, people found my blog, and they liked what they read, and six months later, I was doing my best to serve daily content to an audience of over 20,000 people.
That’s when I started to earn quite a bit of money, enough to call myself a full-time blogger.
