Goddard, Joanna. “Blogging as a Career.” A Cup of Jo. A Cup of Jo, 2012. Web.
In this post on her blog, Goddard explains her career beginnings and how she unexpectedly became a full-time blogger. She explains how when her blog became popular, she put up some ads to earn pocket money and realized that she could make a lot more money than she ever anticipated. Her advice for aspiring bloggers is to develop a unique voice, though she does express doubts that blogging has the same job security as other professions. After all, she never dreamed of making a living by blogging a mere 5 years ago, so it is hard to say for sure whether it is a lasting medium.
