My new Facebook group is here! Join Blog-Woo Babes today!

  The new Facebook group is here! The new Facebook group is here!!   (Psst. If you missed the update on what happened to my last group, you can check that out here).   This group is slightly different than the last, although the goal and atmosphere remains the same: women coming together to share their accomplishments, ask questions, and grow their blogs together.   As you may know, I recently added a new focus to Blog Beautifully that I’m calling “Blog-Woo”. Blog-Woo is my made-up term for mixing “woo-woo” strategies like manifestation, magnetism, and oracle cards into your blog and your business.   >> Learn more about woo-woo and how it affects your blog by clicking here!   I wanted to center this new Facebook group around Blog-Woo, hence […]

Update: The GirlBoss Bloggers Facebook Group (why it disappeared!)

  Hey everyone! Just popping in today with a quick but important update…   If you were a member of my GirlBoss Bloggers Facebook group and went to check it out today, only to find that… Hey, the group disappeared!   You’re right! The group has disappeared.   Facebook closed down the group yesterday without warning, due to a trademark issue with the word “GirlBoss”.   They sent me a message to notify me right after it happened, but there was nothing I could do, unfortunately.   It’s 100% my fault for not looking into trademarks before choosing a name for the group. However, OBVIOUSLY I wish Facebook had allowed me some time to give you ladies a heads up before they deleted the group! I’ve received countless messages from […]

3 Game-Changing Activities Your Business Needs

  As I’m sitting down to write this post, it’s been almost one year since I launched Blog Beautifully – my little baby – out into the world.   And what a year it’s been!   As anyone who’s started their own online business will tell you, the first year certainly hasn’t been easy. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t also been fun, rewarding, and thrilling all at the same time.   Looking at the past year in review, there were three things that stood out to me as being HUGELY successful and beneficial for my blog and business. Without these three things, I can honestly say I wouldn’t be anywhere near the wonderful and amazing space I’m in right now.   These three activities have resulted in:   • […]
