Okay, I love to blog and I enjoy writing but HOW do I make money from it? Apart from writing my thoughts down and getting my message out to a few people, HOW do I get it to reach huge amounts of people and really start to make a difference? It's something that fascinates me and something I would LOVE to learn more about. I want to monetise my blogs AND be a voice in this world that can really impact the lives of others.
I am learning and have come so far since I started but I cant wait until tomorrow night at The Creative Collective's Web Wednesday event, called Blogging Success. They have three of Australia's top bloggers presenting and sharing their top tips and strategies to help us all create outstanding success with our blogs. Looking forward to it and will let you all know what I learn so that you too can use your blog to get your message out to the world AND to create some fabulous income!! Love it Love it Love it!!
