How are we in August already? I feel like I haven’t had a moment to take a breath and over half the year has passed already! Maybe it feels like time has gone so fast as I have been so busy working on my blogs and YouTube channel.
I have been working hard at starting to really build up my blogs (I have a second one I am getting ready to launch) and start turning it into a proper income stream so that I can quit my day job and work from home. The main reason that I want to do this is so that I can spend more time with my family. I’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot of time with my grandson over the last year and it has shown me just how much I miss family time. I know that this won’t happen overnight, but I am moving in the right direction with it all.
Here are a couple of posts that I have published recently.
My YouTube channel, Ali Budgets, is going well too. I am showing my real journey with cash budgeting, even the bits where I make mistakes. Doing this shows my viewers what can go wrong and how to fix things. I’m hoping that my channel will also help me reach my work-from-home goal.
Something else I am starting at the moment is volunteering at my local community fridge. They are trying to stop so much food from being wasted. I think it is great what they are doing and wanted to help and give back to my local community.
As you can see, I am very busy at the moment but I have still had time to read some great blogs.
Here are the great blogs that you should be reading this month.
The Grumpy Olive
I have been a fan of The Grumpy Olive blog for quite a while now. They share delicious recipes, wonderful books, and coffee posts. There is a lovely amount of positivity and humor shared here too. I often end up feeling hungry after reading about their latest food posts lol!
If you haven’t already, you most definitely should go and read their blog now! Here are some great posts to get you started.
Eleanor is a lifestyle blogger, writing regular posts about freelance life, books, healthy habits, and more. She lives in Sheffield, working as a freelance content writer, social media manager, and VA for clients across the world. I have found many of Eleanor’s posts about blogging and freelancing very helpful. And I can also confirm that Eleanor is a very good VA!
