For the past 3 months, every Thursday I have been blogging about how I make a living online, digital marketing, entrepreneurship and things that I have learnt.

In this short time I have experienced all the highs and lows, but at the same time I have learnt a boat load of stuff ever since I decided to become a professional blogger.

I was inspired to write this post after a conversation on blogging with a fellow blogger and a super talented artist Kristine Ballard.

Look I am no guru or expert in blogging, just a newbie having a go.

In this post I just wanted to share all the things that I have learnt and done on how I grew my blog from a beginner’s perspective.
