The other day a friend of mine asked me why I started a blog in my 50’s. She hinted (although didn’t come right out and say it) that blogging was for younger people.
At the time I gave her my standard answer of wanting to be able to work from home and work at times that suited me and my family rather than times that suited someone else’s business needs.
But when I got home, I thought about it a little more and realised there are many reasons why I started a blog in my 50’s. I thought I would share them with you so that you might be inspired to start one too…
Are you looking for a genuine work from home opportunity? Something to supplement your income or even to replace it? Are you tired of being told that there is a work from home business for you to join right away only to find out you have to spend most nights out of the house promoting it?
I may have the answer for you. But you will have to consider a few things first because this isn’t for everyone, but for those who do take it up, it becomes a lifestyle as much as a business.
Are you trying to find out how to restore your classic editor on your blog or website because WordPress has updated your site and it’s now broken?
I had this problem today. I’ve spent most of the day trying to figure out first of all what was wrong with my site and then what to do about it. But the good news is I’ve fixed it.

When should you get a mentor and how much should you pay for one? I hummed and ahhhed about this for months when I started my blog. There seemed to be no easy answer as everyone I asked had a different opinion.
Some said you could find everything you needed online for free. Others said that everything online was outdated and no longer relevant.
Some said that mentors were a waste of money and others said that they were worth their weight in gold. So what was I meant to do? I’m going to share what I found out too late in the hopes that you don’t make the same mistake…
A bloggers life for me. That’s what I kept telling myself as I started my first blog a few years ago. I knew I wanted a “job” that was going to enable me to work from anywhere and at any time of day or night.
I knew that I didn’t want to continue working for other people and being told what time I had to be in work by and what time I could leave. And I was always so ANNOYED when I was told I couldn’t have my holidays when I wanted them because it didn’t suit the needs of the business.
I knew there must be a better way of making a living and I started to look for one, and this is what I found…
Do bloggers get paid, and if so how? I have been asked that so many times over the last few years since I started my first blog and it still surprises people to learn that yes, bloggers do get paid.
There are a number of ways in which they get paid, in fact, and I will go through a few of the most popular ways here…
Have you set your Christmas blogging goals yet? No? I know it’s still only November, but really, you need to get a move on.

Why do you need it to get viewed a few times? Won’t that just annoy people? Find out the answer to that here….

Is positive thinking silly or science? This is what I wondered when I first started getting interested in Psychology way back in my twenties.
I remember people talking about self-fulfilling prophecies and couldn’t help but notice the amount of times that this theory seemed to be borne out. I became curious. I wanted to know if there was any actual science behind the statements and theories that I was hearing.
I did some digging, some research of my own, and some observations. This is what I found out…
