The quote above was taken from Viral Content Buzz blog article, How to Find Your Blogging Style. Smarty recommends staying true to your voice, even as it develops and changes. She notes that there are times in the journey where your target audience may change as a result of your personal or professional shifts in focus, so regularly reevaluating your target audience is a must. Smarty also recommends blogging even in the face of burn out, which is inevitable for all writers. Instead of letting writer’s block stop you, try introducing a new series or different forms of content, such as podcasts or webinars. That way, you can take burnout as an opportunity to reinvent your creative pursuits.
I started a blog which I plan to monetize only through affiliate marketing and my own products, no ads. I’ve been working on building an audience for my blog, for about 1 year and a half, many people think is maybe too much time, but I just want to make sure that I build enough trust with my readers before I start to try to make them buy something.
The quote above was taken from one of Baer’s presentations, Youtility, which talks about how marketing isn’t just competing for attention against other products, but other life elements around your target audience (such as family and friends).

Many states charge sales tax on items sold over the Internet. What determines whether a sale is subject to tax in a state is not where the selling company is located, but where the affiliates for that company are located. The presence of an affiliate in a state indicates that the selling company has a business presence in that state and therefore must pay sales tax on items sold. However, you do not pay that sales tax because you do not actually sell the products. You get your income from finding customers, so you are exempt from any sales tax.
