I get so much joy reading your feedback and seeing you share the posts and trying the projects and recipes I share.
I could not do this without you and I feel so blessed to have such amazing people reading my little blog. I am also honored to have met so many amazing bloggers along the way. They are so inspirational and so encouraging. It is such a great community to be involved in.
If you are not a blogger but have thought about starting a blog…NOW IS YOUR MOMENT! Read this post I created to help any and everyone start their own blog and join me in the blogging world! I promise the sweat and tears (ok I may have never cried, except for tears of joy) are totally worth it!
Here are some questions I have been asked in the past year.
Question: Why did you start a blog?
Answer: I started Live Randomly Simple to showcase DIY projects that I create at my shop American Clutter LLC. It was a way to start promoting our shop online and share my love for creating things with everyone and anyone willing to listen!
Question: How much money do you make blogging?
Answer: If you are starting a blog to make money, don’t! Blogging is a lot of work and dedication and the money will come, but it will trickle in slowly unless you have something to sell right off of the bat. I made pennies my first few months and just recently starting seeing an income over $200 a month.
I know other bloggers who make boat loads of money but they also sell products that they created on their site. Basically, you need to start a blog because you love doing something and you want to share your mad skills with the world. The people who have emailed me photos of how their projects turn out, who email me to ask questions or just connect..that is what makes blogging worth the time and effort I put in!
Question: What is your favorite topic to blog about?
Answer: Umm..that is tough (hehe)..DIY projects of course! I am completely addicted to DIYing. I have always been a lover of art and making things. It is just my way of expressing myself and calming my soul. For all of your DIYers you know exactly what I mean.
Question: What is your favorite post on your blog?
Answer: Ok this one is really tough. I not only love my DIY projects, but I love doing recipes for you guys and writing about the things I have learned blogging. So I will give you my top 5 favorite posts on the blog so you can check them out when you are done entering to win!
