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 […]


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! Let’s jump in.   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 is it that 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 […]


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 […]


The 4 Best Twitter Tools to Grow & Automate Your Account

The 4 Best Twitter Tools to Grow & Automate Your Account

Today I have the pleasure of introducing a guest post by the lovely Eden Fried. Eden is one of my close blogging friends, and she’s written a fantastic post about Twitter tools to grow your account. Enjoy!   When I first launched my blog and started creating social profiles for it, I scrambled to remember the password I set for the several Twitter accounts I’ve created over the years.   Seeing as I rarely frequented Twitter as a teen in high school or even in college, I failed at that attempt and quickly found myself creating another brand spanking new Twitter profile – yippee! (Can you sense my sarcasm?)   Not-so-necessary-confession: I’m not the biggest fan of Twitter.   I’m […]
