Interview with Allie Rambles, blogger and stay at home mom of Ramblings of a WAHM. Allie has been blogging, learning and earning, sharing and teaching income online since September 2010. You can catch her on her blog.

What is your blog about?
My blog, Ramblings of a WAHM, is documentation of my journey to earn online income.  What I have succeeded and failed at is there for others to learn. You can find out more about my blog here.

When did you start your website?
I started the blog in October 2010.  It feels like yesterday though, time flies.

Why did you start blogging?
My husband bought "The Four Hour Workweek" by Tim Ferriss.  I picked it up one evening and started reading it.  His ideas were so fascinating that I needed to know more.  This is where I discovered the amazing bloggers online that were earning a living and talking about it.  I felt I could do the same thing and started Ramblings of a WAHM.

How often do you update it?
In the beginning I was posting about 2-3 times per week.  But I am working on building a business around what I do online and this takes me away from my blog more.  So now it is about once a week.  But it is always about what I am doing elsewhere on the Internet.

Where do you get the inspiration for your posts?
That is a good question.  Nowadays mostly from what I am doing but there has been times other bloggers inspire me to write something.

What is the single most thing you like about blogging?
The comments, which to me are feedback to how I am performing as a blogger.

Where do you see your blog in the next 2 years?
Funny you ask that, I just put together my first ever business plan and in it I have written projections for the next year but I didn't go further.  The Internet is ever changing and I feel I can't predict how well I will do.

But to answer your question, in 2 years I will still be cranking away at publishing posts about my journey, earning a full time income online and always growing to do and learn more.

What do you do for SEO?
There is so much that all I can do is direct you back to my blog, I have a post about what I do for seo.  But in short I have a handful of keywords I work with to rank on Google as I high I can.  I strategically place the keywords in my posts but still keeping that feel of word fluidity for the reader.  After I publish I will backlink by with social media and blog commenting.

Do you allow guest posts?
Yes I do but I am very picky.  My blog is my baby and I am very protective of her.

Do you have your own products?
No yet, but I plan to.

Do you offer any services, if yes what are they?
This is one arena I don't explore ...yet.  Maybe someday.

Do you have any advice to new bloggers?
Run.  Run as fast as you can.  Blogging will suck the life out of you.  I'm just kidding.  I love blogging.  But it can be very life draining at times.  Be sure to put time limits on your online activities.  Get outdoors.  Get coffee with friends.  Play with your kids.  Go read a book.  Get offline often.
