Are These 7 Pinterest Mistakes Hurting Your Business?

  Ah, Pinterest. The love of my life. (And I’m only half-joking when I say that).   If you follow me on social media, I’m sure you’ve heard of my love of Pinterest a time or two before. I have an archive full of Pinterest-related blog posts, that’s how much I love it.   I’ve been lucky enough to work with dozens of different ladies on their Pinterest accounts since launching my Pinterest services, and spending so much time analyzing Pinterest has brought a few things to my attention:   1. When it comes to Pinterest, a lot of business-owners are making the same few mistakes that are slowing down their growth and success.   2. By fixing these mistakes, […]


Struggles and Successes in My Second Month as a Full-Time Blogger

Struggles and Successes in My Second Month as a Full-Time Blogger

  You know how people always start off their end-of-the-month posts by saying how fast the month has flown by? And how they can’t believe it’s already June (or whatever month it happens to be)?   This is not one of those posts.   This month has been a tough one for me, filled with work, hustle, and very little play. Looking back on May, I can’t believe all of the exciting, stressful, overwhelming, and amazing things that happened this month.   But we’ll get into all that in just a bit!   At the end of last month I shared with you all of the exciting things that happened in my first month of blogging. I loved writing that […]


How to Write Blog Posts in 30 Minutes or Less: The 5 Question Method

How to Write Blog Posts in 30 Minutes or Less: The 5 Question Method

  If you’re writing a blog while working full-time, I feel you girl.   I did it for years, and I know how hard it is. You can’t quit your job to pursue blogging because of your finances, living situation, whatever it is, BUT you don’t want to give up on blogging completely (because you love it!)   So you make it work.   When I was working a 9-5 desk job, I used to wait anxiously for the minute my boss would leave our office. As soon as he was gone, I would open up my blog and start typing away as fast as I could, listening intently for the footsteps that signalled he was coming back.   Even […]

Make Money with Pinterest Affiliate Links (Without Losing Your Street Cred!)

Make Money with Pinterest Affiliate Links (Without Losing Your Street Cred!)

  In the spring of 2016, Pinterest made a big announcement: They were allowing DIRECT affiliate links on pins again.   That’s right, you can now link a pin directly to a product or website you’re an affiliate for. This cuts out the “middle man” step of sending someone to read the product review on your blog first, and then hoping they’ll click on your affiliate link and make a purchase.   This is BIG news.   Although affiliate links were allowed on Pinterest in the past, they were banned for over a year because the platform was becoming too spammy. But apparently those uber-smart people at Pinterest headquarters have spiffed things up a bit, and we can now use […]

What It’s Really Like to Blog Full-Time & My Daily Routine

  Since quitting my job in March of 2016 and launching Blog Beautifully in April, my life has done a complete 180.   I went from working an 8-5 job that I had zero passion for, to being my own boss, setting my own schedule, and doing something I absolutely love every single day. Someone pinch me!   I wake up in the morning so excited to get to work, and a lot of the time I have trouble falling asleep at night because there are so many ideas for blog posts and projects swirling around in my head. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.   If it’s your dream to blog full-time, my best advice is to […]
