Sarah Beth Blogs
Hello Chuck! Welcome! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
So, Sarah Beth Blogs, what’s the blog about? Who am I? Why am I blogging?
What’s the blog about?
Building an Income
Sarah Beth Blogs is a lifestyle blog.
I’ve always wanted to share what I’m doing to build an income from home doing things I love, like reselling on eBay and other selling platforms, selling used and new items. Id also love to build my own little website selling items I’ve either made or imported, I’ve not quite decided yet, but it will be fun sharing the process!
I started this blog so I could share the full and honest process of building an income from home, warts and all. Things I really enjoy doing and will most probably discuss are reselling on eBay and other selling platforms, blogging, YouTube – building and maintaining a channel, matched betting, freelance writing and maybe even a little mystery shopping.
I guess I decided to start a lifestyle blog because I like the idea of having more than one or two niche topics to talk about.
Everything I want to talk about and share all revolves around our family lifestyle so it seemed like a natural step.
Blackpool – I was born and currently live in Blackpool, Lancashire. I LOVE my hometown and think it deserves its own cheerleader. I just couldn’t leave it out! So I`ll also be exploring areas in and around Blackpool and the Fylde Coast and bring you all you need to know whether you’re planning a mini break or a longer visit.
My husband and I also home educate our 8-year-old son, as I write this in March 2019 our experience of home education is still limited as we only started a month ago.
However, in that month we have learnt so much about the education system and especially home education.
Most importantly my son has started to enjoy learning again and exploring his interests and passions.
Just to clarify, we are not against regular schooling, not at all. We just feel that with everything our son has been through and had to cope with because of a chronic withholding problem. It’s the right move for him at this point.
He is welcome to go back to school if and when he wants to in the future because believe it or not, up until this current school year he had really enjoyed school.
But things change and after many months of discussion and research, we decided to home educate.
So, I thought about including home education on this blog because there really is so much I could talk about. However, having given it much thought Ive decided to start a second blog a little further down the line, I will of course let you know once it is live and read for visitors! 🙂
What I can offer you at Sarah Beth Blogs?
From my life experiences so far and all the things I’ve had to battle through, I honestly believe I can offer you an open and honest perspective on trying to build an income from home and all it entails as well as opening up about how working from home affects your lifestyle and your family. As I’m approaching 40 this year, it really did reinforce the fact that I wanted to earn money on my own terms. Enabling us to build the family life we have always wanted.
I’ve battled through my demons (PTSD, Panic attacks, anxiety (I’ve still got anxiety!) and mild depression) and have a new found appreciation and love of life. We only get one shot at life, so I honestly believe we should live our best life, be as happy and content as we can be and do things that help us grow and develop on our own terms.
I want to share how to find your motivation, get organised, manage your money – earning and saving it, start blogging, build your blog. Start and build a reselling business on eBay initially and then other selling platforms. Maybe even building a website to sell your own items either handmade or imported!
Id also love to look into building a little freelance writing portfolio and maybe using that as another income stream.
I`ll also be restarting my matched betting journey and I might even have another go at mystery shopping, who knows where my confidence is going to take me!
Honestly, the possibilities are endless, in this day and age. It’s such an exciting time to be building an online income!
Most importantly I want to be open and honest about the whole process. The good the bad and the disorganised – maybe that’s just me! 😉
Who am I? The person behind Sarah Beth Blogs
I’m Sarah Beth Lillico, happily married to Rick for over 10 years. We have one son together called Richard. Richard was born on Christmas day! Yes, it was a massive shock as he was 5 days late, but not as much of a shock as it might have been because my birthday is also very close to Christmas so we are used to Christmas birthdays in our house.
Having overcome PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and learning to deal with my anxiety, I believe I have a unique perspective on life and really want to help others who are on a journey to improve all areas and aspects of their life. I believe we can do this together so we can support and encourage each other.
Why am I blogging at Sarah Beth Blogs?
Good question! Well, I want to share everything I’m learning. I spend lots of time researching topics and working towards bettering myself as a person, a mother and a wife and I thought well if I’m going to be spending all this time researching things I might as well share what I learn.
I also really want to help others, yes, I know, it’s a bit of a cliché, but it’s true. I’ve really struggled through parts of my life for various reasons, which makes me really want to help and encourage anyone who might be struggling or questioning themselves and their abilities. Sometimes when we doubt ourselves, or we lack confidence and self-esteem we need someone to say, “you are good enough” and “I’ve been there, I understand, some days are bad ones but some are good and on the goods days, it’s perfect to start making progress”. I intend on being that person, pointing out that yep, life can be crap sometimes, however, what’s important is what you do with yourself to get through the crap and believing in yourself enough and having the confidence to say right I’m going to build something of my own, I am good enough and I can do it!
So! Do I sound like someone who you’d like to have cheering you on?
Someone who you’d have a natter with over a coffee? Or tea if you prefer! 😉
Someone who you’d go to, for advice or a confidence boost?
Id love to be, I want to get to know everyone so we can build our income, encourage each other and build a little community of like-minded people.
Or you can pop back weekly for new posts. If you’d like to get to know me a little bit more, I’ve written a second post More About Me
If you’re at a loose end why not say “Hi” over on social media, I’m on there daily at various times throughout the day, Id honestly love to say Hello!
I honestly can’t wait to meet you!
