New Blog Idea- Is It a Good Idea?

Hello All!

I cant believe it's almost February! 

This month has been a lot of fun, and It's given me some time to think about everything I want to achieve this year. 

I have so many plans, and so many ideas for future projects, I really think this year is going to be completely from last year. 

Last year, I published a lot of posts about how to be a freelance writer, what it takes to succeed, but I felt like I completely left out how I prepared for the freelancing business, and what I personally did to land so many jobs. 

This year, I have a goal to write more about my personal experiences, and give you an insight of how I run my business.

This is going to be completely different, and very new to me. 

This new approach to my blog, brings up one of my ideas on how to expand this blog, and even add to my freelancing career. 

I have been toying with the idea, of "starting" a new blog. 

If you caught the "quote unquote" starting, is because I already have the blog, I'm just not sure about what I will be posting on there. 

Let me explain. 

Before I started blogging for a profit back in 2011, I was actually a full-time freelance writer. I set up my blog/ website and my goal, back then was to write about different subjects in order to grow my online portfolio. 

This worked out AMAZING for me, until I decided to take my blogging work more seriously, and create a profitable blog. 

At first I thought- Oh darn, HUGE pay cut! But, incredibly enough, It wasn't a pay cut, it was actually a big step, that turned into a BIG profit. 

Since then, I have been a full-time blogger, making money online, and now that I have this blog, I'm wondering- Is it time to start OR re-examine an older blog?

Here are some of my concerns about having another blog:

Will I be able to keep up with another blog?

What will my content be?

Am I going to have to set up separate social networks for this new blog?

Will I attract any readers?

With so many questions and doubts going through my head, all I can is try. 

If you are anything like me, then this part can be kind of scary, but then again, it is necessary if you want to find out if your idea is "good enough" to create another form of income.

And, that's another BIG question mark I have right now, HOW will I be able to create an income from this new site? Am I going to have affiliates, a new book or writing clients again?

For those of you who don't know, I used to be a full-time freelance writer. Now, I've become more like an occasional freelancer ever since I've started blogging for profit. 

I know what it's like to try new things and struggle. Been there, done that.

However, now I'm more prepared, and I know more. But the question still stands- Will I be able to keep up with it? And If I can, what am I going to be offering?

As of right now, I'm just playing around with the idea, trying to decide if the new blog is going to work out or not...

If you would like to check out the new blog, please do so HERE. 

Let me know what you think. 

Do you love it? Hate it? Is it good enough? Would you go for it? 

I would love some advice!
