7 Myths About Making Money as a Blogger That You Need to Stop Believing Right Now

7 Myths About Making Money as a Blogger That You Need to Stop Believing Right Now

  Have you ever read something online and thought to yourself, “But that’s simply NOT true…”?   I feel like that a lot of the time, especially when it comes to my two zones of genius: blogging and Pinterest.

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.
