My Top 3 Automation Tools for Bloggers That Will Save You HOURS Every Single Week

My Top 3 Automation Tools for Bloggers That Will Save You HOURS Every Single Week

  I thought about titling this post, “How I Work 15-20 Hours/Week While Travelling Full-Time”, but I decided that it sounded a little too douchey (you’re welcome).   The reality is that it doesn’t matter if you’re travelling full-time, part-time, or not at all: We’re all on some sort of time crunch. Whether you’re a digital nomad like me, blogging on the “side” of your day job, or just a living-breathing person in today’s day-and-age – you’re BUSY.   One of my biggest suggestions for growing a successful blog while a time crunch is to automate, automate, automate. You should be automating as many things in your blog and biz as possible, so that when you do have time to work on your blog, you can focus on the things […]


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 […]


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

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 […]


16 Eye-Opening Blog & Biz Lessons from 2016

16 Eye-Opening Blog & Biz Lessons from 2016

  …2016, you were one hell of a year.   When I compare my life today to my life one year ago, the difference is unreal. Like, cray cray.   Last December I was working a desk job I hated. I was living in a city that wasn’t the right fit for me and that was too far away from my family. And I was basically a sad ball-of-stress 24/7.   Take all of those things and flip them 180, and that’s what my life is like today. I work from home and have a career I absolutely love. I live in a beautiful home that’s less than a half hour drive from my parents’ house. Above all else, I’m happy. So SO happy!   2016 was an amazing year […]
