A blogger’s professional life is more uncertain than conventional employees. We may have several revenue streams, which is good, as we don’t put all our eggs in one basket. There may be months when we’re flush, maybe even with too much work to handle.
Then there are those low revenue periods, which are inevitable. Just as awesome months always happen, periods with little revenue coming in are also to be expected. No matter how many clients you have, no matter how many blogs you run, you’re bound to have low revenue periods.
How do you protect yourself from – and get through – these periods? Read More
Emergencies, by their very nature, are irritating and unexpected. While there are worse emergencies (than cash flow issues) that a blogger can face, there is no denying that cash problems can be more than a pain in the butt. For anyone who works online as a freelance blogger/writer, finances are an even more uncertain factor. There are great months, but there are lean months.
The best advice I can give any blogger is to make it a habit to stash money whenever it comes in. Big or small, you need to make sure that you always set aside some cash for a rainy day. Over time, your stash can reach a sizable amount that will serve as a buffer against most emergencies.
However, sometimes, life really just delivers a blow or two, and you might still find yourself needing emergency cash. What do you do then? Take advantage of your online prowess, and find emergency cash sources! Read More
Building a finance blog is easy. Building a popular finance blog is a lot harder. The Internet is full of them, big and small, and while it is simpler than ever to create one, it is getting harder to be noticed in the sea of sites available – especially in a niche where many will turn first to official financial sources like the Wall Street Journal or MSNBC.
But difficult doesn’t translate into impossible, by any means. You don’t have to worry about competing in the beginning. Instead, what you have to be focused on is knowing how to generate a high traffic site by taking baby steps toward that end. That can be done in several key ways that are less complicated than you might think.
Accept That It Can Take a While
Time is the key ingredient to any blog’s success. You can’t just expect to put up a couple of posts and have everyone flock to see them. There is content to build, and there are connections to make, reblogs to receive andmarketing tactics to try. Even just leaving it there while you continue to add more content will work, but again, it all takes time.
