  1. Starting a blog is extremely rewarding. Helping others, feeling useful and making a difference in a field is what drive most people starting a blog. Of course, the financial aspect is also crucial but I think you should start blogging only if you really like the subject of your blog, blogging shouldn’t be a duty…

  2. I did think about it as have a lot to share. However one thing I don’t have a clue about is how to start and share the blog. What website can do that? Etc.
    Anyway. Amazing. Love your blogs and info. Just found I yesterday and I am addicted already. Thank you.

    • That’s great Jana, you totally should. Especially if you have a lot to share. 🙂 As far as how to share the blog, I would just start with family and friends, share your posts on social media, and the better content and pictures you have, it’ll start to take seed and grow. Not saying it’s not a lot of work, but you really would just need to get in there and do it, learning ONE step at a time.

  3. Hello, I have been reading your blog on blogging. I am on disability, i have lost half of my executive functioning planning, organizing, communication and social skills just to name a few. Could blogging be something that could be of helpful to me, what do you think? I also have other medical issue which lead to my being on disability.

    Thank you, Ellen

    • Ellen, it sounds like it might be too much on your plate to take on an endeavor like that, but ultimately, I’m not sure that anyone could answer the question except for you. :/

  4. Sarah,
    I just want to let you know that you’re one of the most inspiring bloggers I’ve read so far. For the past few months I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a lifestyle blog, but I haven’t really started working on it because I’m afraid it won’t be worth the trouble. However, after reading a few of your posts, I feel soooo inspired and ready to try.

    Thank you so much!

    Happy Holidays and a Happy 2016 for you and your family!

  5. I just started my blog under 3 months ago and it’s been such a rewarding experience so far! I’m working on monetizing it and developing traffic. I’m surprised at the strong response I’ve found in social media so quickly! Thanks for helping by writing about blogging. It’s been so helpful!

  6. Sarah, I retired after 29 years in medical practice management in 2011, not by choice. My oldest daughter and I then decided to start an embroidery business. We had everything ready to go and she had a massive stroke at age 41. So, I couldn’t continue with the business. My daughter had two girls who are now 22 and 16. We have been helping them get through school. So this is why I need to earn money. This August 20th we will be married 50 year’s and we would like to go somewhere nice. I have been trying to do mlm and have not been able to make any money at all. Do you think that I could make money by doing this and can you help me?

  7. Hi Sarah, I am 53 and am at the point in my life that I would love to stay home! I am a nurse and have been for the last 25 yrs. I was recently diagnosed with severe arthritis in my back and hip. I would absolutely love to start a blog and I must say that you have been my mentor/inspiration. I am not sure what to blog about? I love talking to people and helping them and new to the essential oils, but falling in love with them. Any suggestions? (Admiring you from Evansville, IN.) Go women!! 🙂

  8. Do you have suggestions for email services? I want to start a blog but would like an email account for just that separate from my personal email.
