When I started blogging...

  1. When I started blogging, I told myself I would keep at it for 6 months and see where it would take me.
  2. I wasn’t going to care about the money, the followers, the views, nothing.

Stick To It

  1. I used to think that all it took to change your life or make progress towards a goal was to get to work and stop being lazy.
