It all started with me, sick in bed, bursting with a desire to craft, make my rented home beautiful and being physically unable to do anything like that. So, one day after searching on Flickr (the Pinterest of its day), I decided to share my plans and easy craft projects on a blog (as well as my old Flickr account). Discovering online courses was a game changer for me, taking course after course, I quickly became obsessed with blogging and online learning. I want to share my knowledge with you and teach you how to start a WordPress website, so you can learn how to create a blog so you can blog about your passions and make some money.

Do Bloggers Make Money Blogging?
Back Story: I’ve had a craft blog since 2010 that was really a hobby and something to keep me occupied when I didn’t have the energy to do anything else. I suffer from chronic medical conditions and disabilities which you can read about here. I set about to learn absolutely everything I could learn about blogging in that time and over the years blogging has changed completely. When I was told that I had a misdiagnosis and I would never be cured of my illnesses, I decided that it was high time I made a real go of it. I’ve always been a type A personality and confident that I could do anything if I put my mind to it. So, in February 2017 I decided to make a strategic effort to earn income from my blog.

Assuming you use Pinterest as much as I do, you’ve probably seen the word “branding” pop up here and there. But what is branding, how do you create a brand, and how do you brand yourself? Branding is the personality of your business.
Think about your best friend and your boss. Unless your best friend is your boss, you probably speak and interact with these people differently. You may goof off with your best friend and can act out. But with your Boss, you act more professional. So let’s compare this with your brand.
Your brand has to do with how you interact with your customers and how they perceive you. Your boss sees you as a hard working professional, while your friend sees you as crazy and a fun friend. Are you starting to get it? You get to choose how people view and interact with your brand. Will individuals who see your brand see a business with a professional tone, a caring tone, or a fun and colourful tone?
