I’m Caroline, a world traveler who struggled to figure out what she was supposed to do for a living for over two decades. I bounced around from job to job, worried that I would never find a calling.
Knowing what I wanted to do for a living was never a clearcut thing for me. I was the type of person who changed her mind as often as she changed her hairstyle, which was almost every month!
And while I struggled to choose a career path, I watched my friends move up in the world. Many of them got promoted, bought their first house, started a family, saved up for their retirement, and took luxurious vacations.
Meanwhile, I bought so many self-help books that an entire bookcase wasn’t enough to hold them all in one place. It felt like everyone around me was moving forward with life in a very successful way, except for me. I must have spent over a thousand hours trying to figure out what was wrong with myself!
But it turned out that there was nothing wrong with me – I was just a late bloomer (and there’s nothing wrong with that!). 10 years ago, blogging was still a relatively new thing, and I happened to come across a post from two food bloggers who shared their monthly blogging income for the whole word to see. My eyes couldn’t believe the numbers on my computer screen – YOU CAN MAKE THAT MUCH MONEY BLOGGING??

Well, that’s pretty much all the motivation I needed to start my own blog. That’s how Pickled Plum was born, I always had a passion for cooking but never wanted to work in a restaurant. The hours are insane and I prefer to spend time with the people I love. But to find out that I could create recipes online and maybe make a full time living? That was worth a try.
It wasn’t easy. Blogging isn’t easy. It takes a lot of patience and discipline – two things I didn’t possess. But by then I was hooked and so began the painful process of changing the parts of myself that were holding me back. Needless to say that the payoff was huge because here you are, reading about my success story as a blogger.
Pickled Plum has been running successfully for almost a decade, consistently earning six figures, so I felt it was time to give back. I started this blog so I could help people like you, who are interested in starting a new business. I’m not a genius at marketing nor am I super knowledgeable with computers, I’m just really driven.
I know how hard it can be to take the first step when you don’t even know where to begin. If you think blogging may be your calling, you have found the right place to get started!
