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 […]

7 Foolproof Ways to Get More Re-pins on Pinterest (Even as a Beginner!)

7 Foolproof Ways to Get More Re-pins on Pinterest (Even as a Beginner!)

  One of my favorite things about Pinterest is that it’s a platform based on sharing. You design a gorgeous pin, share it to a few group boards, and BOOM. Your pin gets re-pinned by hundreds, thousands, MILLIONS of people (said in my best Dr. Evil voice).   But wait a minute, hold up there. Maybe this isn’t exactly how things usually go down for you…   Ever wish you could crack the code and figure out how to get THOUSANDS of people re-pinning your pins?   If so, you’re not alone! I recently sent out a survey to my mailing list asking for feedback before I created my Pinterest ecourse, Pageviews from Pinterest. And you know what? Over 70% […]

It felt super crappy […]
