1. It seems like you have a good plan underway! I wish you the best of luck! I have been blogging since March of 2016 and I haven’t monetized my blog yet. I graduated with my masters degree (in music ha) in December and am trying to balance the adult world as well as my blog – its hard but I’m learning. 😛 So, I don’t yet feel like I’m able to put forth the time and effort I want to in order to monetize. BUT I thoroughly enjoyed reading this to see how you plan to achieve monetization. You shared several things I hadn’t thought of – so thank you! With your Instagram, you should consider downloading Planoly (its a free app – you can pay but don’t have to) where you can plan and schedule your Instagram posts in advance. It is a lifesaver for me because it allows me to plan but also to move things around in my “feed” before I post them – helping with cohesion on my profile page.

    Best of luck with monetization, stats, and Instagram!

  2. I know it wasn’t the main point of your post, but it was super interesting to hear a little about maternity leave in Canada. My husband and I are currently researching what the policies are like across different countries to figure out our plan for our future, and Canada’s sounds very logical – take the time you need as a new mom, but reinvest any income you make. Food for thought for me – thanks!

  3. I love this list. I have a lot of the same goals and it’s good to see what others are doing and see if I’m on the right track. I may also need a VA at some point 🙂

  4. Congratulations on your soon to be new arrival.
    And good luck in your goals!

    Blogging is definitely a difficult journey, but also rewarding in that it is a great outlet.

  5. Terrin,

    Love this post! I love learning how other mamas are doing it. Wow! Going to give birth soon!!

    I love your strategy to get going. Yes, Pinterest is the best way to get up there and love that you’re doing affiliate marketing to get more income! Yay! I’m trying my hand at that as well. At first I wasn’t making much, but now I’ve figured some things out. You learn something new every day!

    I love to hear success stories from people further up the road than me! It gives me hope that I can work hard and succeed, even through days where doubt creeps in a bit. I am anticipating the day that my dreams come true and I can really earn a living through writing and hard work, and be able to enjoy my time with my kids!
