Who Am I?

My name is Victoria Virgo. I am from London, England but have dreams of travelling to Cuba for a little salsa dancing and a little Tequila drinking.

Back in the real world, I have a real world job that is OK for now but I hope to be able to create a full time income from my online activities with my blog and other online areas.

What Is My Blog About

I have a blog called My Daily Cuppa.

The tagline for the blog is – My Daily Cuppa – How This Procrastinator is Getting Things Done Online and Offline.

The blog is a work in progress but the main the aim is to create an online account of my attempts to achieve the lifestyle that I crave, which is to earn a living doing the things that I love.

I am sure that there are plenty of people out there who are in the same position as I am where we dream of this perfect life but it seems to be just out of reach. Well I hope to make my dreams a reality by working little by little to achieve my goals.

How To Make Money Writing

There are several ways that you can make money writing. I am choosing to make money writing by doing the following. I hope to:

  • Make Money Writing Kindle Books

  • Make Money Writing for Niche Blogs

There are also several books on the subject. I have been busy reading and researching in order to gain as much knowledge as possible.

How Can My Blog Help You?

I have identified two things that are preventing most people from living the dream and these are procrastination and fear.

I am therefore on a quest to discover how to conquer these two barriers to success so that I can achieve the goals that I have set for myself.

I hope that sharing my own experiences will help to spur you on with your own life goals.
