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 […]

Beginner Blogger Bootcamp 2.0: Updated, Improved, & (Still) Totally Free!

  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

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 […]

The #1 Thing Holding You Back & How to Create an “MVP” For Your Blog

The #1 Thing Holding You Back & How to Create an “MVP” For Your Blog

  Back in February, I released my first ever ebook, The Girlboss Bloggers Handbook…   How long do you think it took me to put that book together? A few months? Maybe a year?   Nope. Try three weeks. In fact, the content was written in two single afternoons. Now, the perfectionists out there are probably reading this like, Gasp! Two afternoons!! No way did it end up anywhere near perfect.   And – spoiler alert – it didn’t.   Spoiler Alert #2: That’s okay.   Seriously, chasing after perfection is a total waste of time. Yet it’s something I see 95% of new bloggers struggling with…   I can’t launch my blog until it’s completely perfect.   I can’t start making money from my blog until my Services page […]


What the Heck is “Woo-Woo” and How Does It Affect My Blog?

What the Heck is “Woo-Woo” and How Does It Affect My Blog?

  Since shifting the focus of Blog Beautifully and creating the new “Blog-Woo” category, I’ve received TONS of questions about woo-woo. Namely: What is woo-woo!?   And I totally understand the confusion. When I first heard the term woo-woo, I had NO IDEA what it meant. So today I’m going to shed some light on it for you. I’ll explain what woo-woo is, unravel my concept of Blog-Woo, and highlight the impact that woo-woo can have on your blog, business, and life.     What the Heck is Woo-Woo!?   First off, woo-woo isn’t a scientific term by any means. More like a layperson’s term. I’m sure someone came up with “woo-woo” because they were having a hard time describing it any other way. I know I have a hard […]
