    Thank you for this, Ruth! I really like how you organized the different phases of a blog. I definitely agree it takes time to monetize a blog and find your tribe, but after a little hard work, it is all worth it!

    I really, really needed this! I am 10 weeks into starting my blog and I feel like everyone is primarily focused on monetizing their blogs, while I’m still trying to figure out what I need focus on, who I’m talking to, and how much I should talk about! I’m even thinking that I should split my blog into two blogs because I’m feeling like all the topics I want to talk about don’t “mesh” well. I’m already exhausted and feeling like I can’t keep up…no idea how I would manage two!

    But, this post reminded me that it’s okay to be where I’m at. And that I can take my time to figure everything out.

    And I can’t wait until EBA opens again….I really hope I can get a seat in next year’s class!

    This was really helpful. I feel like the order of the goals are perfect and I’m glad that you mention the importance of figuring out what your blog is about BEFORE you think about monetising it. I feel like a lot of the resources on the internet just teach you how to earn money quick, but I don’t really think that’s authentic or does justice to your blog and it’s potential to actually benefit people.

    I love this great post! When I started blogging, I did not know it was going to be my full time job until now! Being a blogger is really wonderful! I do not know if there is anything bad that comes with blogging because it really helped me in our finances, my kids, my family, everything! All I have to say is that I wish I started earlier than I did because it’s a blessing!
