Being a blogger

Being a blogger is not easy. Firstly, you need to think about how you can come up with a topic that will be very useful to your audience. That may be difficult for you. Secondly, you think of so many things that could go wrong when writing your blog. Will you be able to provide useful content? The only person who can answer that question is you. For you to answer that question you must first calm down, relax, and think about why you started that website from the beginning. I am very sure you had a reason you wanted to have a website like me, I have so many reasons I can think of. For me, it’s freedom. I do have a full-time job I’m a teacher, I teach 1, 2 and 3rd grade. I teach in a special school, but not learners with disabilities. I teach hospitalized learners, who are unable to attend in their normal schools because they are ill. I love my job I don’t complain because teaching is also something I’m passionate about.

I got this job immediately after completing my Degree in Education. I was very lucky because some of my friends didn’t get jobs as fast as I did. I love writing and reading as well. I spend most of my time on the internet searching for ideas that can develop me and make me better. But sometimes it’s not easy because of work and school at the same time. I’m currently doing my Honours Degree in education as well, so as much as I love writing and researching as it is one of the reasons I opened my website, the time is not on my side. I have families to look after as well. My family in KZN where my mom, grandma and my siblings live and my family in Gauteng where Live right now, with my son, my stepdaughter and my boyfriend. I have to provide for them because right now I’m the only one who’s working fulltime job. My boyfriend is in cameras and videography. PANASONIC LUMIX FZ80 4K Digital Camera, 18.1 Megapixel Video Camera, 60X Zoom DC VARIO 20-1200mm Lens, F2.8-5.9 Aperture, POWER O.I.S. Stabilization, Touch Enabled 3-Inch LCD, Wi-Fi, DC-FZ80K(Black)

I bought a house in 3 months after getting my first job. I enjoy owning my own home because of being free also. I was renting for a while at least for three months but I was not happy renting because there are so many rules like you shouldn’t bring your boyfriend and family for visits. I’m sure other people are happy renting, but for my personal experience renting is not for me. So the topic is about “being a first-time blogger” and why it is not easy. Then I asked myself a question that every first-time blogger can ask also. I asked myself, why I wanted to be a blogger. So I said freedom, which means two things for me, freedom of expression and financial freedom.

Financial freedom to me means a lot. Does everyone want to be financially free? I imagine myself one day not needing a full-time job or working for someone to make money. I can employ myself and be my boss and that’s what young people should think about these days. We can create our businesses and build an empire and also create jobs instead of sitting and hoping to get a job. We need to think of building a brand that will generate a passive income in the future. There are so many ways to do that, you just have to know it is possible but it won’t happen overnight.



I’m a professional teacher. I completed my B ED DEGREE in Foundation Phase 2016, I started working 2017. Currently I’m in the process of completing my B ED HONOURS in Foundation Phase. I write and illustrate children’s picture books. I’m creative, so I apply my creativity through writing and illustrating children’s picture books. I do a lot of research to improve and master what I’m passionate about.
