Blog A Living began life as another domain (Blue Mushrooms) back in January 2005. That site was simply a journal I kept while I was learning how to manage, run and promote websites. It contained a lot of rants, a lot of questions, and lots of useless tidbits.
Then in 2010, I realized I had learned quite a bit: how to get an audience, keep them and grow them. How to get beyond search engine dependence and create a core following that comments on your site and links to it from their blogs, Twitter accounts, Facebooks and StumbleUpon pages. I decided to start fresh with a new domain and a new attitude.
Blog A Living is a resource site for those who want to learn professional blogging. It will focus on information, lessons learned and tutorials. You can subscribe via RSS, Facebook, Twitter or email to be sure you see every article from Blog A Living.
The original site slogan from Blue Mushrooms still applies: “Get rich in 379,804 painful, difficult steps.” Like anything worth doing, it takes a lot of effort to get rich at blogging – or even to make a full-time living at it. But it can be done. If that’s what you want to do, keep reading. And thanks for joining us!
