Meet Cora Parks: Your IRS Refund

My Foray into the Blogosphere

by
Cora Parks

I first learned of blogging in 2007 as a way to make money.  Unfortunately, I promptly forgot about it until 2009.  What precipitated my going into blogging was a desire to disseminate tax information to a larger audience than I would be able to reach as a sometime tax instructor at work.

So in August 2009, I commenced my first blog post.  It was nothing special, just a “hey I’m here” type of post. 

All I wanted to do was to talk about taxes in plain English so that no one’s eyes would glaze over.   Although, others make money off their blogs, I don’t make a penny.  In fact, I lose money in that I must pay hosting fees every month out of my own pocket. 

Do I wish that I could make money?  Yes.  Do I want more readers?  Of course I do.  But my writing was and is not predicated upon the number of readers or how much money I make.  I do it because I love it. 

The only caveat is producing fresh material.  Except for a couple of guest posts, I write and edit all the material on my blog.   This year, I made changes to the blog template, the size of posts, and frequency of posts in an effort to attract more readers. 

Right now, I take things day by day, hoping that my posts make “taxes a little less taxing” in the lives of my readers. 

I would love to have you join us at blog.taxtoday.info.

  1. Does this apply to just the American authors?
