What if my posts are crap? what if Blogger.com decide my blog should be taken down? What if my friends laugh? What if no one takes me seriously? What if I can't make a career out of blogging? What if no one likes our recipes? What if they don't like my amateur Iphone photography?
I blogged anyway and I now understand the saying...
At home the blog has been a massive success. We are very conscious of what we eat, we have tried tonnes of new (healthy) grub and all 6 of us are loving food and our money seems to be going much further.
There are three things which have helped me conquer the what if fear....
1. Google accepted us for Ad Sense
2. Product Reviews
These seem to be massive in the blogging world, bloggers testing products and posting reviews. Sometimes for a monetary reward and sometimes just to try out and keep a product. I recently signed up to Bloggers Required and noticed a couple of foodie assignments on there, neither paid. Both looked fun and both were a fit with our healthy eating mission.
|I did a little dance....|
Guess what they both said YES! They both saw feeding Us 6 as a good blog - a blog reaching people and being read. I did a little dance (in private) when I received the YES emails.
I found some awesome foodie blogs to read and these are given us a list of dos and donts.
I spent last weekend playing around with it and I am way more comfortable with this new look, although still not 100% happy - What are you thoughts?
My favourite inspirational blogs...
Sally's Baking Addiction and in particular her recent post, How I turned my Food Blog into a career. It was refreshing to read sally's honest post about her journey. Refreshing to hear that yes it does take time and yes it is hard work - luckily for me I am willing to put the work in.
The biggest thing I took away from our Homie award experience is that we are on the right track!
These three experiences have given me a massive boost - our blogging mission is now stronger than ever. I want to inspire my family, live healthily and blog.
I know 100% that if we continue, work hard and we keep my focus on the end goal we will achieve it.
