I updated the article to include information about my son’s college graduation.
Blogging has been a therapeutic outlet for me since I quit my job in 2007. Maintaining an online diary has helped me cope with the stresses of everyday life.
Through blogging, I’ve met new friends online who are fellow moms like me. They were the ones who introduced me to the idea that I can earn from blogging in the comfort of my own home.
I started to earn from blogging in 2010, and since then, I’ve registered with several blogging networks and have been working with them for years. While some of these companies are no longer in operation, I’m grateful for the opportunities they’ve given me.
For the past 11 years, blogging has helped me pay our bills, buy groceries, pay for my kids’ monthly tuition, purchase personal items for my family, and even cover some of my kids’ hospital bills back in 2011.
My son has since graduated from college, and I couldn’t be prouder. Blogging was a huge part of how I was able to support him through his education.
While the blogging landscape may not be as lucrative as it once was, I’m still not planning to retire from it. To young aspiring bloggers, I would recommend trying it out, growing from it, and thriving in the world of blogging.
