Whether you’re working on your resume, sending an e-mail to a potential client or finishing up an essay, there’s one thing we have to double check before considering it done. Check GRAMMAR! I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, but it’s absolutely necessary. It could make the difference between getting hired or locking in that “A” for school. Grammarly has saved me time and time again, even though I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English. It feels like I have my very own private grammar editor.

25 Organizational Tips for Bloggers
General Blog Organization
- Keep a password file – and keep it safe. You will rack up lots of usernames and passwords when you own a blog. Put all of these in a password-protected document, or better yet, jot them all down and store them in a fireproof safe in your home.
- Use a blogging planner. Note any blogging-related activities you need to do, including writing blog posts, taking photos, or shopping for materials. The more you jot down, the more organized and productive you will be! (I also keep an affiliate binder to manage “terms of agreements”, payout info, etc.)

If you’ve been looking for a viable way to generate an income from home, I’m sure you’ve seen a number of posts on how to be a virtual assistant. I’ve been blogging since 2011 and freelancing since 2014. It’s definitely been a journey, but I can say with confidence that it was worth all the effort.
So You Want to Be a Virtual Assistant
In 2011, I started a small blog that I have since re-branded into Hay Hay Life. Over the years, I found new facets of content creation that I really enjoyed doing. If you’ve been following me since the beginning I’m sure you’ve noticed a change in the quality of my images and designs. I developed a passion for it that I never would’ve thought of when I first started. That’s definitely where we will begin.
Find Your Passion
If you are already blogging, maybe you’ve already found areas that you enjoy more than others. Perhaps you’re even great at it, and knowing this will help you create your service offerings.
When I first started expanding my brand to include virtual assistant services I didn’t take the time to focus on my strengths. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of offering what seemed like “easy sales” at the time. Doing so did nothing to build my business reputation.disclosure policy .
