Running a blog is a lot of fun, and sometimes non-bloggers are surprised to realise that beyond blogging as a hobby, you can also earn a regular income from writing a blog, and sharing via social media. Since people spend so much time online these days, there is real value in online social influence. More and more brands are interested involved with blogs and spreading the word about their products via bloggers who can share their experiences with their audiences. If you are a blogger who is yet to take the step into brand work, I would encourage you to give it a try – it can be a real win-win for everyone involved!
Although running a blog is really rewarding and enjoyable, there can be a huge amount of admin work too. It takes me hours to get through my emails sometimes, and when you have weeks where you’re juggling sick kids or a lot of family commitments, the balance can sometimes get a little overwhelming. That’s why I’m always really happy to find tools that help cut down on extra work and help to streamline some of my blogging processes.
