I’ve noticed some growth in my blog since I’ve started working full time, which is maybe a bit ironic, because you’d expect things to go in the other direction. Apart from putting out (I think) better and also most focused and organised content, I’ve kind of realised that one thing that has actually started helping me quite a bit in this journey, is no longer being student-finance-reliant. I recently read this post by Chloe Plumstead, which resonated quite a bit with me, because in some ways – it is very true that having some more disposable income will help to boost your success in this industry.

Blogging when you’re a broke student (i.e. my whole life until 6 months ago), is actually not the easiest, and if you don’t do the right things (which I didn’t), it can become near impossible to see any growth in your blog.
