4 Ways to Overcome Pitfalls as a Blogger

This is a sponsored post.

Being a blogger is hard work.   When you first start,  everything is rainbows and sprinkles.  But, there will become a time when you need to take a step back and reassess.,  You have to have dedication to your blog, but you also want a life outside your blog.  It is so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of blogging and lose focus on you and your family.  I know I did.  

Schedule

You have to set a work schedule.  This is a MUST.  Just like any other job,you work a specific amount of hours.  being a blogger gives us the flexibility to choose which hours, but I find it much easier to have a schedule, especially if you have kids..  I choose to do the majority of my work when kids are in school.  I do have the occasion when I have to work at night or the weekends, but it is usually a short time for me to finish up a project or edit some photos.

Networking

It is key to find like minded individuals in the blogging world.  There are so many groups on Facebook with members that are willing to help you grow.  Whether it be for your specific niche or a group of entrepreneurs, you have to network with these people.  There is a lot of information to be found in these groups.  You have to take the time to be an active participant.  Many of these groups tell you when the next blog conference is,which conference they think is best, etc.  Go to at least one conference you fell best meets your needs.  You will be happy that you did.


Don't be afraid to ask questions

 If you have a question, ask it,  Many fear the question may make them look less knowledgeable,  Hey,m we all started out with zero blog posts.,  I ask questions in the hopes I may get several ideas and not just one solid answer.   Sometimes a question is a way to get ideas and not just a technical, how to you install this widget or plugin,

Know your worth

This is the number one thing I want female entrepreneurs to know,  Their worth.  And it is up to you to decide how much you will charge for a story or a social media post.  Their are many tools to help guide you, but only you know what it is worth to you.  I use The Social Blue Book for guidance.  I have worked with brands for free, hoping that if a I did a good job they would come back to me when I pitched the next time with my rates.

Facts Regarding the need for ePorts

Have you ever been out and realized you needed an outlet, only to not be able to find one to use? If you answered yes to this question then you need to hear all about iJuze.

What is iJuze?

The iJuze Network (pronounced I-Juice) is a network for individuals who rely on power to get them through their day. In an age where our lives run on electricity, iJuze provides you with the peace of mind that you'll be able to recharge your devices wherever you go and when you want to. You may find you need to recharge your laptop, smartphone or tablet to enable you to keep your business running while you are away from home or the office. Or you might need to charge your electric wheelchair, oxygen tank device or run your CPAP machine. You never realize just how much you need electricity until it isn't there for you to use. This would have come in handy for me before there were all of the different charge packs available. My phone ran out of battery and I was without a way to charge my phone. I ended up getting locked out of my house and had no way to contact my parents to see if I could get a ride to my landlord's house to get a copy, let alone call my landlord. I ended up having to walk 2 miles to get to my parent's house only to find out they weren't even home. iJuze would have come in very handy at that time in my life when I could have really used a spot to charge my phone. iJuze transforms your everyday AC electric sockets at your favorite venues into reservable ePorts by simply installing their ePorts onto the venue's existing AC outlets.

Two Facts Regarding the need for ePorts

  • By 2018 the power wheelchair industry is expected to hit $3.9 Billion… that’s a lot of people in wheelchairs and 2 million are expected to be new users.
  • By 2018 it is estimated that 4 million Americans will need an oxygen concentrator device.
iJuze comes in a basic and premium subscription. You can learn more about the subscriptions here.
I am so excited as I was given the ability to giveaway One year of free energy ($5000) Value from iJuze. (cannot be exchanged for cash)
