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 […]

17 Top Tools for Making Money Blogging (That Won’t Give You a Tech Headache!)

  I’m all about keeping things simple when it comes to my blog and business.   In other words, why take 10 steps when 3 will do? Why use a super-confusing software when a simple one gets the job done?   Since starting Blog Beautifully, I’ve tested out dozens of different tools, programs, and platforms for bloggers and online business owners. Some I instantly fell in love with, and some – not so much.   In this post, I’m talking about the tools that “stuck”; the ones that are now so ingrained in the day-to-day management of my blog and business, that things would undoubtedly fall apart without them.   These 17 tools made the cut because:   a) They’re easy […]

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 […]


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% […]
