Blogging Income & Stats August 2016

1st September 2016

I’ve had another bad month of blogging, my mojo is pretty much non-existent and I’m really struggling to motivate myself to get any work done. I’m sure that it is just a phase and I can’t wait for it to be over! When I actually switch the computer on I enjoy myself, it’s just switching it on that is the problem!
