Blogging Q&A #2

So in today’s video I’m tackling 3 questions that were submitted, and um… I kind of go on a tangent with the last one. You can tell I’ve been holding it in for some time, and I finally let it out. (Don’t hold things in. Isn’t that what I encourage in Creating Your Happy? So as you can see I’m totally working on that aspect of my life too!)

Questions I Answer in this Video:

  1. Question #1: I feel I need to connect more with my readers and followers (the few that I do have). I want to put myself out there so they can connect with me but I am definitely shy. I know when I think of you Jessica, for example, I feel like I know your personality and can connect emotionally with you. You feel like a friend! I know for a fact I don’t have that through my blog or social media posts. Anyway, sorry trying to explain. 🙂  Where should I start with this: Instagram stories or Youtube? I want people to get to know me and know my WHY!
  2. Question #2: Where did you find the opening music to your blog and videos? It’s so catchy!
  3. Question #3: I understand that like anything else you get what you put in, i.e. number of posts, time, and effort. But how long does it take to actually make money blogging and is it realistically a full-time bill paying job or a hobby type job?

    Hi Jessica, I’m so glad to see all these Q&A’s about blogging! I’ve been toying with the idea for a while. If absolutely love the creative aspect of making the content but the technological aspect seems so daunting! I know I could outsource it later, but in the beginning I’m worried it would be so tedious it would burn me out. How advanced do your computer/technological skills have to be to just get started? Also out of all the time you spend on your blog, what percentage (approximately!) would you say you spend on the “nuts and bolts” of the technology as opposed to content? Any tips for someone starting out who’s not totally tech savvy? Thanks in advance!

      Hey Megan!!! It’s so funny that you asked this! Did you happen to see the new Blogging Q&A #4 that I published today!? Someone else had this same question, and I tried to tackle it the best I could, in a quick q&a session! You can see it here, in case you haven’t yet:
      But… to answer your question about the percentage of tech vs. content… I’d honestly say once I got it up and running, I spent probably 10% of tech, and the rest on content! Now… it’s literally like 2% tech, 98% content… because I outsource anything tech! 🙂 I hope that helps!

        Good to know! That does help. Thanks for getting back with me so quickly. About to check out that link! One more question. I noticed you have an e-course on how to make money blogging. Do you have one (or recommend a good one) on how to start a blog? I know there’s tons of info out there.but I think an e-course would make the learning curve a lot quicker!

        1. Jessica says:

          Hey there! I don’t have a video course on that “yet,” but I do have a blog post that’s pretty basic in case you want to check it out! It helps with the technical set-up, and I’ve heard from a lot of people that it really helped them! —>
          But I plan to do a video bundle around this too, but it may be a bit! So I’d check out the blog post first, and then keep an eye out for the video bundle coming soon for more in depth and detail! 🙂
