Blogger’s Diary; Broke and Tired

Yes, you read right, I’m broke, and it’s disturbing.

How often do you feel not too determined to do what’s needed to be done?

It’s been a long time in here and I couldn’t wait to jump back with something bigger and better, but then, the heart is heavy and needs to let go of the weighty emotions. Being broke sucks, especially when you have little or no power over it.

It’s okay to assume that I shouldn’t be broke because you think or feel that I make at least enough to get me going each month, or the fact that I’m still a student who shouldn’t bother about money since I’ve got parents whom are more than willing to send me yet another allowance for the month!

Do I Make Money Online?

Oh yes, I make money online, but not as much as I want to. Few weeks ago, I made my first product sale. It was my first ever pre-made blogger template. Something to smile about, I know, but then, my earnings aren’t enough to get me off of the almost frequent brokenness I hate experiencing. It totally seem impossible to make that much money which can help me reach my financial goals.

You know, being broke doesn’t have to be about not having money. Sometimes it’s the fact that you have less than you want. I am insatiable, and so are you.

How to stop being broke
I’m Broke!

It’s so sickening to realise that I can’t have enough and can’t figure out the best way to risk the little I have. Why am I broke!

I have high expectations for 2018 and and just like you, I believe that it will be great year for us, my dear hustler.

Probably Just Another flamboyant Spender

It’s so sickening that I find myself a little too limited and confined to brokenness, because there is only a tiny thing I can do to help stop the frequent brokenness. Few days ago, I sank deep within, wondering;
“How can I stop being broke?”
“Do I spend much more than I make as a young lady?”

Trust me, it’s so difficult to accept the fact that the little you’ve made and feel is perfect wouldn’t be so satisfying after your final shout of “I did it”. Yes I danced around when I made my first sale, but then the excitement died as soon as it came. I need to maximize and spread!

Starting Up Sucks

Being a start up is so tiring sometimes, and not hitting the jackpot is even more tiring. We’ve got so many plans, but we need money to actualize most of all we’ve planned for. Sometimes I feel tempted to take back the little I invested on cryptocurrency; what can a girl do when she needs so much but want to stay independent?

My major rant is the fact that I feel so limited over here and the glitches with the location I find myself is currently not helping me stay away from being broke. There is little I can do with the internet over here and school is definitely keeping me on check that sometimes, I wish I could close my eyes and realise the struggle is over with no issues.

The Financial Illiterate

I am Broke, and I want to get away from having to complain over the fact that my best is too little to satisfy my expectations. Having so much to do in school with so little to put in place is a bit of frustrating. I’m not so financially literate and I wonder why I never learnt that as a student.

Dear readers, what do you do when you are broke and have little or nothing to do about it, because of the series of limitations hindering your progress?

I’m a student, so maybe I am not supposed to complain, but what can girl who isn’t willing to stay dependent on others do?

  1. Our own is worse, we that depend on parent. If they get broke, we automatically follow.

  2. As an entrepreneur or blogger, it’s never easy to succeed anyways. Being broke is what we all face sometimes, especially when we’re simply starting up something we know in future will give us alkost everything we ever wished we could have inotially.
    Let me use myself as an example here, i am also a student who started blogging but the niche i found myself into wasn’t making me money so i switched from niches to niches until i finally settled for this my cryptocurrency trading blog. It has never been easy, but my advice is that you should find something aside the career to fetch you more money, just like i am doing already. Currently i am an SEO expert and WordPress Expert, so with that i landed a contract that is paying me good money monthly and yet am still striving to make more money and that’s why i also launch the automatic music download website
    Good luck my dear… so far so good you’re doing well already

    • Oh Thanks Godfrey… You’ve got a nice story. Sometimes we just have open and let it all out for positive story like this.

  3. Dear onome,
    I just read this post and i would love to tell you that its NOT TIME GIVE UP BUT TO WORK HARDER! Yeah,i know being broke sucks alot but dont let that stop you from achieving your dreams. I think what you need now is your blog. First of all,you have such an awesome domain name. You need to work on your blog. People that blog about blogging make sooooo much money. I have read soooo many post regarding that. Some were even able to make money on their first month!! So just ask yourself something. If they can make it,then why cant you?? They are not better than you in any way. You just need to sit down and re-evaluate your blog. Start an email list,read and research as much as you can. Be willing to invest the little you have if you think it will be worth it. Another thing, GIVE affiliate marketing a try!!! That is where majority earn from. I am not an expert in this whole blogging thingy but from the little i know,it is soo possible to make a living off affiliate marketing. So what should you do? Join affiliate network like shareasale and start promoting things you use and love. You can also create a resource page with all your links there Nd promote it. I know if you become consistent,STOPPED PROCASTINATING and be dedicated,you will be able to scale through this year!. I just want you to know that your blog was were i learnt about wp.org,namecheap and even how to start a blog! You are an amazing blogger. You just need to find yourself… my 2 kobo

  5. I would recommend that you go through this blog, it would be of great help to you trust me. Ellduclos.blog

  6. Well, I used to say “I’m broke” but all that changed the day I read this book, Smart Money Woman by Uche (I fail to remember the last name right now). Truth is no matter how little or insufficient your funds are, if you create a budget and COMPLETELY abide by it, you’ll have little or no problem. You could also seek for outside help(like donations), though. I mean, why shouldn’t you? I did it once and I was surprised to get a positive response.

    I understand how tough life can be as a student. Good luck to you

    • Thank you so much… I have a copy of that book in my phone… Will definitely read it.
