Blogging is a great way to connect with a target audience on a somewhat personal level on one condition... you actually BLOG. It sounds great in theory - start a blog, write about a cool topic, get a bunch of readers to follow you, and BOOM! All of a sudden you've graduated to Perez Hilton status, with 14,500,000 estimated monthly users. Who wouldn't want THAT????

From grooming your blog to creating the perfect pitch letter, follow…Continue
The recipe post. It seems simple enough, right? List some ingredients, some instructions, shoot off a few pictures and you’re done! Not so much. In order to create a recipe post that keeps your readers coming back for seconds, it requires an eye for detail, meticulous methodology and great…Continue
What can be said about writer’s block that hasn’t already been said? Writer’s block isn’t just a condition; it’s also a feeling. It’s heavy on the shoulders. It makes the back ache, the fingers paralyzed and the mind numb. And it happens for a reason. It happens because you’re bored.
The challenge of writer’s block is…Continue
Adding images to your blog posts that you can also push to your social media channels makes you more visible and it can help to extend your blog’s reach and increase readership.

I am going to try to do a photo every week week 1
When I began blogging a couple years ago, I thought I'd just write a few things and give myself a little something to do that didn't completely revolve around my daughter. I began sharing deals and such that I found, basically to keep it off my personal Facebook news feed because hubby said I was spamming everyone. Apparently…

In the blogging world matters of money are all so very hush hush. I decided it was time for someone to come forward and share what they were earning and how they went about earning money from their blog.
I believe that if we really want to help each other we should become more transparent and give people realistic expectations of what blogging entails and that with a little hard work you can actually make…Continue

I don't broadcast my blog as much as I probably should. So, when I do mention it to friends or families and give a brief explanation of what it is about (news that all parents could use), I usually get one of the following reactions:…Continue

No one else will say it, blog it, or come right out and bitch about it. So I will.

After reading a few articles I decided to put this out there. I read about a Mom who was discontinuing her blogging journey because it was taking up too much time and away from the family. I saw pins about what you need to do on a daily basis to promote your blog. I’ve read series on using these multiple platforms to promote and how to best use them. Articles on how to use Google search engine to your best interest and what sites to use to analyze your data and ensure growing numbers and…Continue

Like a lot of bloggers, I follow a lot of different blogs. Every week, a collection of interesting, humorous or insightful information fills my inbox via RSS feeds and messages. And I make time for them in my day. Because I don't just read any blog; in fact, I am quite picky about what I read.…Continue
I cannot be the only one…who has logged into their blog on any random day only to be blindsided by a less-than-friendly comment left by a reader. After reading the aggressively negative comment I find myself going through a range of emotions: First, I feel defensive, thinking to myself, “What did I do or say that caused such animosity,” secondly, I feel defeated, “Maybe I shouldn’t write anymore,” and lastly, I remind myself, “What I write is not for everyone…and obviously this…Continue
