I first started blogging when I was in high school on livejournal.com. For me, it was a space to unleash my pre-teen angst and document the daily lives of my friends and I. Fast forward to present time and blogging has become a highly sought after career path.
Like any formal business, it's important to take a strategic approach to blogging and utilize tools and technologies that make your day-to-day workflow easier. Typically, creatives have several revenue streams and keeping track of payment and invoices can get nauseating. One app that i've found to be extremely helpful is the Square Cash App.
I like the Cash app more than Venmo and Paypal simply because funds are available instantly. It's like real cash, but better. Additionally, the Cash app offers each user a unique $cashtag that allows you to receive funds from clients that don't use the app themselves.
When all is said and done, time work is time paid. There is nothing worse than waiting around for a check to arrive, which is another reason I love this app. I always have anxiety about paying people on time, because I know how it feels to wait for said check. I genuinely use this app on the daily to pay my photographer and web developer--alleviating any and all stress on my end.
