EEK! I’m so excited to share with all of you a new project I’ve been working on! Since I began blogging I’ve had tons of questions come in about how I execute different aspects of my business. I get questions about how to blog and how I started blogging. I’ve also learned through the blogging community, that there is not a lot of (free) advice out there about what to charge for posts, how to gain sponsorships, or even how to manage a blog. The more I talked to fellow bloggers, the more I have felt like the lack of information that has been spread is really detrimental to all of us. So I wanted to create a space where I could share what I have learned, and what I am learning.
I don’t know everything, in fact I don’t know most things. But I feel compelled to share the limited knowledge I have so that more people can see if a creative entrepreneurial life style may be for them. I also believe that being transparent about running a business based around the support and loyalty of readers is essential. I want my readers to know how I make business decisions both for their sake and for mine. Being accountable and having an open forum where I discuss how I monetize my blog, and also how I value the community I blog for, feels really essential to me and was a natural next step for my business.
Very soon I’m hoping that SoYouWannaBlog.com will have a forum where bloggers can discuss varying topics, and connect with one another. It will also of course be open to anyone who is just interested in how blogs are run, or other creative outlets such as photography and graphic design. This new venture won’t take time away from this blog, and you’ll still see new content on Wednesday’s and Sunday’s. This will be the only post I make regarding the new blog, as I want to keep FatGirlFlow focused on plus size community and fashion. The website is in it’s infancy and currently has a few posts about how to blog, but will be gaining many more articles very soon.
Thank you all for your continuing love and support in everything I do. I would truly be nowhere without you!
