Marcie: In 2008, I was transitioning to a writing career and someone from a prominent magazine told me to start a blog to create content that would serve as my portfolio.
I started blogging, fell in love with it and have been blogging ever since.
Marcie: Previously, my blog Marcie Writes shared information on writing, blogging and self-publishing.
Currently, I'm transitioning to new topics but haven't selected them yet.
Marcie: Blogging will never go away.
In fact, it is highly recommended if you want to establish yourself as a thought-leader on a topic; to enhance your online presence; or to develop your writing skills.
Marcie: I would start earning money on my blog sooner. I blogged for three years before realizing it was an online business and should be treated as such.
I would have also started charging for my writing services sooner.
Marcie: Problogger by Darren Rowse, Awesomely Luvvie by Luvvie Ajay and I'm Just Sharing by Mitch Mitchell.
Marcie: I make money from freelance writing, sponsored posts, speaking, consulting and book sales.
Marcie: The best advice I got was to never give up. Blogging is a lot of work.
In addition to creating content, you have to learn SEO, marketing strategies and other skills to succeed online.
