17 Top Tools for Making Money Blogging (That Won’t Give You a Tech Headache!)

17 Top Tools for Making Money Blogging (That Won’t Give You a Tech Headache!)

  I’m all about keeping things simple when it comes to my blog and business.   In other words, why take 10 steps when 3 will do? Why use a super-confusing software when a simple one will get the job done?   Since starting Blog Beautifully, I’ve tested out dozens of different tools, programs, and platforms for bloggers and online business owners. Some I instantly fell in love with, and some – not so much.   In this post, I’m talking about the tools that “stuck”; the ones that are now so ingrained in the day-to-day management of my blog and business, that things would undoubtedly fall apart without them.   These 17 tools made the cut because:   a) They’re easy to use once you master the learning curve b) They […]


How to Become a Kickass Blogger by Infusing Brand Personality Into Your Writing

How to Become a Kickass Blogger by Infusing Brand Personality Into Your Writing

I’m super honored to introduce my lovely guest poster, Judy from heyjudess.com. She’s written a phenomenal post that I know you’re going to love!   You often hear bloggers and creative entrepreneurs talking about personal branding, finding your superpowers, and writing with purpose. Did you know that all this fun stuff can make your writing so much more juicy, compelling, and engaging?   Everyone and their grandma have a blog now. But what separates a blog that’s readable from one that’s engaging and compelling?   How do you differentiate yourself with brand personality?     You can make your writer’s personality more compelling by infusing it with inspiration outside of blogging, writing, or what you would typically consider normal. What you want isn’t something that’s normally accepted as, “Oh, this […]


These 11 Mistakes are Stopping You From Making Money as a Blogger

These 11 Mistakes are Stopping You From Making Money as a Blogger

  According to a poll of Lifehacker readers, over 50% of bloggers are earning less than $100/month from their blogs.   In the same poll, only 13% of respondents said that they made over $1,000/month. Keep in mind that these stats are likely skewed, because the reality is that most bloggers quit before they earn a single penny.   Blogging is tough – we all know that. But blogging for a profit is even tougher.   Despite these stats, I’ve made it my mission to help as many women as possible achieve financial freedom through their blogs. I’ve done it – and my life is 10x better for it! – and my biggest goal is helping you do the same.   Over the past year, I’ve helped countless women set […]

  Looking back on all of the content I’ve created for Blog Beautifully since launching in 2016, there are a few items that stick out in my mind. This post on writing with purpose and this post with 40+ Pinterest tips are undoubtedly some of my best.   However, there’s one thing I’ve created that really takes the cake:   Beginner Blogger Bootcamp.   Not familiar with Beginner Blogger Bootcamp? It’s my free email course that helps bloggers start, launch, and grow their new blogs from scratch. It’s also the perfect precursor to some of the more advanced strategies I share on Blog Beautifully.   However, Beginner Blogger Bootcamp was created in June 2016, and well – things have changed slightly since then. I’ve changed since then, as have some […]

Unlock Your Blogging Superpower & Nail Your Personal Branding

* This blog post is a sample chapter from The Blogging Babe’s Handbook. If you enjoy this sample, you can pick up the full thing here!     What is Personal Branding (& why is it so important?)   When you watch a reality TV show like Survivor or Big Brother, you usually pick out a few “favorites” from the cast, right? A person (or two) that you hope wins the grand prize?   You cheer for them throughout the season, shed a few tears when you hear about the hardships they’ve gone through back home, maybe even creep their Twitter profile once in a while, seeing what they’re up to and if they’ve leaked any spoilers about an upcoming episode.   Why do we do this?   Why do […]
