Clubhouse Room Notes: BLOGGERS, STOP WORKING FOR FREE

I hosted a room on Clubhouse with my blogger friends and it was a blast! It lasted 2 hours and was packed with information! We loved providing real advice from bloggers who earn a salary creating content. No bullsh*t insight was given! We had a great time answering questions about getting free products, blog income, rates, and more!


I put high-level notes of what we all talked about and questions from the audience below!


Speakers:

Taylor from What Taylor Likes

Tara from Tarraized
