This post is number #30! I know that’s not many post but I want to celebrate every single milestone because in 2015 I owned another domain called funfrugalosity.com I had this idea in my head that I was going to do all these blogs on money saving tips, do it yourself and frugal hacks. Long story short the blog was not successful and I had no plan so as soon as it was time to pay for my domain and hosting I canceled the blog. It didn’t help that I was dead broke.
So fast forward to 2019 looking at everything under the Melle Indie umbrella growing is awesome. It’s like watching your children grow. You created these tiny seeds and your seeing them start to bloom into what you wanted to begin with. Does it take a long time?….YES! The first post written on this blog was October 14th 2017 and even though it’s only at 30 post today (Over a year later) I still feel proud because the last blog Fun Frugalosity got to 31 post and I quit.
I’m learning that these platforms online take time to build. It’s not like selling on Ebay or an online store. When you sell accessories you make things, put them up for sale,somebody buys them and you ship it out…simple. Not with a blog or a youtube channel it could take years to see consistent checks.
If your getting paid by running advertising under Google Adsense you have to remember if you don’t make $100.00 no checks will be sent and no deposits will be made. I could have $99.99 in my Google Adsense account and until I make that one cent I will not receive any money.
I don’t really worry about the money. If your doing things like blogs and youtube for money your going to quit because we just simply do not make a lot of money. It takes time in my case I’m on the second year and I don’t see things getting consistent until the third year.
I think about these particular endeavors like a internship. People go to some internships for free right?! Well think of making videos and blogs more like an internship and give yourself a year to just create and build. That’s the way I look at it. Just put in hard work and it will eventually pay off in the end! So today www.melleindie.com made it to 30 post and now we are on our way to 50 post! I can’t wait to see what I have built in a year from now!
