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.
Some would say that directory submissions are dead. I am afraid that’s not the case. Good directories still have authority and can make a huge difference to your search engine ranking. So if you are dreaming of becoming famous, making a lot of money from your online venture, looking at ways to increase your website rankings, then here is a list of places you can submit your website to. Remember they are quality directories and you will need more than a website to get accepted, what you need is a quality website. If you already have a quality site then head over to their sites and submit by all means. But if you have just started, I suggest you let your site age and then submit.
Fiverr is a great place to buy and sell things. It’s like a mini-market place where you can buy/sell virtually anything although most of the things sold and bought are digital. I have been selling my services on Fiverr and this month became a second tier seller. I can’t say I make a huge amount of money but the time it takes for me to complete a gig is next to nothing. Its passive income. Here is a screen shot of the collections I made in a few days.
A big drawback with Fiverr is that it takes 20% of your earnings. So if you sell a gig for $5, you will get back $4. But then it provides you with a massive market place.
I have used Fiverr quite a lot and suits my purpose well. Most of the things that I buy and sell are SEO related and other promotional stuff including articles. There are some who really despise Fiverr. For instance, there are those who wish Fiverr was not around so that they can sell their services for more on places such freelancer.com or Scriptlance. Fiverr has changed all that, you can head over to Fiverr and buy articles for just a few dollars. It definitely has raised competition which is good for buyers. Although you have to watch out for quality, but if you look hard enough, you can great stuff on it.
So how do you make money on Fiverr? There are number of things you can do. Sit down and think hard about your qualities, your abilities, things you can do, things you are already doing and see if you can make money out of it. Do a little brain storming.
There are some who simply dress up in a banana costume and sing happy birthday. Can you do that, with a twist? I can’t, perhaps you can. Why not give that a shot? I remember seeing a Welshman singing “happy birthday” in a thong; it actually went down very well.
So if you are considering selling something on Fiverr, here are some Fiverr gig ideas;
