“Seeking Advice: How Can I Turn My Passion for Writing/Blogging into a Career? Where to Start?”

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

Thank you to all of my loyal followers. I love reading your work and I especially love the honest feedback provided by all of you.

I’ve been blogging for a year now and have been published once, last year, on ScaryMommy.com (). Receiving the news that I would be published was one of the major high lights of my life. I blog here on thebloggingmeetup.com, WordPress (), and recently, mombloggersclub.com.

I have been submitting my work to as many publications as I can. A few times, I’ve received personal emails from editors informing me that “I made the short list,” but they were ultimately going in another direction. I love blogging and believe its going very well for me. I have a healthy amount of loyal followers and post often.

I know I’ve found my passion in writing. I feel alive in a way I can’t explain when I’m writing. My question is, how do I turn this into a career versus a hobby? It seems every time I get close to publication or make “the short list,” I end up falling on my face and having to start all over.

I’d love to hear how some of you have turned your passion for writing/blogging into a career. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all in advance!

-Katie
