I gave up being an influencer. I gave up the dream that every blogger seems to be chasing nowadays. I gave up an additional $2k monthly income. And I don't regret it one bit. You're probably wondering - did I get a raise that I could forgo $2,000? Did I get a sugar daddy? Did … Continue reading I Gave Up My $2k/month Blog Income (& don’t regret it!)
Saturday, December 29th, 2018 LOL, I honestly can't help but laugh when I look at how consistent I am at blogging... because I can have spurts of 10 entries scheduled and then be quiet for the remainder of the month or two.

I had a first year promo rate, but after the first year, I would be paying nearly … Continue reading Why I Left Self-Hosting WP for Free WP (Je Suis Jessica)
