Blogs I Love: Oh, She Blogs!

blogs I love

When I started on this blogging journey, I did a LOT of research. I wanted to know the legal aspects, the simplest ways to get started, and how to make my blog successful. I turned to Pinterest for most of my searching needs (I may have been looking at baby pins too) and after collecting about a dozen related pins I figured I might as well sit down and actually read them.
I scrolled through infographics and blog posts, collecting the little bits of data I needed. I finally came to a particular pin that said How to Start a Blog for Free in 2017: EVERYTHING You Need To Know to Launch Your Blog Without Spending a Dime.
I read that post again and again like the Holy Bible.
The post was written by Lisa Koivu at Oh, She Blogs! With a witty name and clearly informative posts, Koivu's blog quickly became my go-to for any follow up questions I needed answers to. More often than not, there was a post that included something I needed. The original post above gave me all the tools I needed to start Rise and Blossom.

Sweater Weather: Up to 60% OFF + Free Shipping

As a stay at home mom, majority of my personal income comes from doing online surveys. I usually make anywhere from $10-$25 a month doing this, which isn't much but it got me gas and some impulse buys for Tate. I still do surveys on the side, but honestly, they SUCK. So the opportunity to make money doing something I actually enjoy was highly appealing.
Starting for free was important to me, because I was (am) flat out broke. For the most part everything has been free! I chose to go ahead and purchase the domain while I did have money, just on the off-chance that someone beat me to it.
I eventually subscribed to Oh, She Blogs! so I can get all the tips and advice I can. Blogging has become a real passion of mine, and thanks to Lisa Koivu, I have a blossoming career going here and I couldn't be happier with the results.
