2.Do you make money from your blog?

Yes, I make money via banner advertising, affiliate marketing, and content marketing.

Don’t be focused on writing a bunch of content all at once. Instead, write when you actually have something to say.

4.What has been your best form of marketing for your blog?

Social media

5.Do you consider your blog a “job”?

Yes, blogging is definitely a job.

6.How do you keep yourself motivated?

I actually rebranded to become a lifestyle blog and I find blogging about topics I am actually interested in keeps me motivated because it keeps blogging fun.

7.What is one personal achievement you’re proud of?

I’m proud of how far I have came, honestly. When I first started Giveaways 4 Mom in 2012, I had no idea it would have allowed me to experience all that I have been able to experience up to now.

8.What advice would you share with yourself when you were 18 years old?

Do something that you are passionate about. It doesn’t matter what others think as you are the one who has to live your life not anyone else.
