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 Blogging Babe’s 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. Something to the tune of…   I can’t launch my blog until […]

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

  Since introducing the concept of “Blog-Woo”, I’ve received TONS of questions about the term “woo-woo”. Namely: What is it!?   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 […]

3 Game-Changing Activities to Supercharge Your Blog & Business

  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 an 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 exciting 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. […]


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 […]

Intentional Blogging: How to Write with Purpose, Poise, & Passion

Intentional Blogging: How to Write with Purpose, Poise, & Passion

  Have you ever felt drawn to something without knowing why?   A ‘pull’ towards something – an object, activity, person – that you couldn’t explain?   And when you followed that “hunch”, you discovered something brilliant?   That’s how my story with Roy Peter Clark’s “WRITING TOOLS: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer” begins.   On a rainy October afternoon, I passed one of my favorite bookstores and felt this little tug to go inside. I followed the hunch, entered the store, and felt drawn to a specific aisle. Within minutes I was holding the book and flipping through it, then walking to the till to purchase it.   Now, not even halfway through the book, it’s completely flipped […]
