    Loved your story! Thank you so much for sharing. I’m in a very similar place right now, would love to read about how you started your blog and becoming a blogger!

      I’d check out my About page and the post “My Top 10 Blogging Tips” – that touches on a lot of that stuff. The real story though is that I just started – I didn’t have all of the skills I needed or a business plan or anything. I just started and learned as much as I could. Sometimes the best thing you can do is just put your head down and learn as much as you can. And google everything you don’t know how to do haha (literally, everything ?)

    Seriously related to this in SO many ways. I work at my dad’s company full time and even though I love it, it doesn’t light me up nearly as much as my blog because it’s something that’s independently mine (not to mention the judgment/pressure is brutal). I daydream all the time when I’m stressed about taking the leap, but have all the same worries as you. Maybe one day! 😉

      Oh wow, you can REALLY relate! Haha honestly, it takes time to come to the conclusion that pros outweigh the cons – but you have such a great thing going! You can totally increase that income and make it happen! Rooting for you!

    I loved reading this and am looking to branch into blogging. How do you get paid to blog?
