Blogger Love {Vol. 12}

It’s been a little while since I shared the love! Don’t think that is because nothing inspired me…quite the opposite. Reading other blogs is what pulls me through the days and lifts me up. It’s just been a bit busy around here with the holidays…then post holidays…then life. I’m sure you understand! If you aren’t aware of what I mean by sharing the love, it’s a way I can recognize other bloggers who have inspired me throughout the week. I…

If you read my post on How and Why To Build an Email List, you know that I use MailerLite for my email list, and I am very satisfied with it. I started out using MailChimp, because so many bloggers recommended that as the best free option. I quickly learned that MailChimp wasn’t…

Email Lists – Why and How To Build Your List

Hey friends! Today we are going to delve into an important, but somewhat touchy topic for bloggers. Many bloggers I talk to have not even thought about starting an email list, never mind growing one. I understand- as a blogger, there is sooo much to do. To be honest, I had no idea how much work was actually involved when running a blog. I knew there would be writing involved, obviously, and social media…but that was about where my knowledge…

Blogger Love {Vol. 11}

Oh, friends….I’ve missed you. I have been quiet on here lately and if you follow me on social media, you may know why. I may share more in a later post, but for now I’ll just say that I haven’t had the words. I haven’t felt like inspiring or encouraging. I haven’t felt like organizing my home or being very social. Instead, I have looked to others to inspire me during a hard season in my life. These ladies that…

How to Keep Your Blog Organized with an Editorial Calendar

Can you even believe October is here already?! How did we get here? It must be because I am getting old that time passes so quickly, right? 😉 Anyway, because I am getting so old…ahem…so busy…I decided I need to get even more organized with my blog. Up until now, I have been somewhat organized. I do use a planner and my Power Hour Checklist and both of those have helped me a great deal. However, with fall comes extra activities…

Twitter Pro in 10 minutes a day? It’s possible!

Social media….it’s a love hate relationship with me. On one hand, I absolutely love and enjoy it…interacting with my readers and other entrepreneurs, educating myself in ways I otherwise wouldn’t be able to, keeping up with what’s going on in the world…the list of things I love goes on and on. On the other hand, as a business owner there is so much to keep up with! Every time we think we have a handle on one channel, another new…
