    5 Ways Having Too Many Topics Are Hurting Your Blog

    I started my main blog in 2011. After years of trying to put everything on one blog, I decided to split up my main blog into three different blogs, including this one. If you want to know why I did that in full, you can read the post here. In it, I touched on why splitting them up was a good thing, but now I want to focus on what happens if you have a blog that is too diverse in topics. Contrary to the old adage, you can have too much of a good thing…and let me explain why. Problem 1: The Reader Who Doesn’t Stay Imagine you are…

    How to Sell Your Blog

    I’ve sold blogs before, some for a big profit and some just for enough profit to justify all the work I put into it. Not all blogs can sell easily. For whatever reason, you might want to sell your blog. Or maybe you designed, wrote and promoted a blog with the intention of selling it all along. Either way, there are a few ways you can market and sell your blog without spending too much money. 1. Decide on a Price Assuming you already have a blog to sell, deciding on a price is the first item to determine. Your price point will depend on a few things. While these…

    How to Run Multiple Blogs on the Same Hosting Account

    Ever thought about splitting up your one blog into multiple blogs? Or maybe you want to start a fresh blog but don’t want to pay for hosting all over again.  Here is an easy how-to guide on how to do this using Cpanel (on GoDaddy). I like GoDaddy despite any other things I’ve heard because they have excellent customer support and I have not had issues with them in 15 years of web development. Why Did I Split My Blogs Up?

    How to Run Multiple Blogs Without Going Crazy

    And for this most part that’s true. You can’t have 3 (ahem….5) blogs and do it all well. That’s sheer madness. But you can have multiple blogs if you have the mentality of Marcus Aurelius who says: Do Less, Better Actually Marcus was quoting Democritus’ who said “If you seek tranquility, do less.” Either way, you can run yourself ragged if you try to do it all. And you can run your blog ragged if you try to make it BE all, too! I know I was. I would feel guilty posting a blogger post on my main blog, but I wanted to share my blogging tips with the world. And as…

    Top 5 Things that Will Supercharge Your Blog in 2019

    I struggled for years with blogging. YEARS! When I saw a new blog skyrocket to $10k a month after only a few months of blogging, I was like WHAT THE HECK! But then…all that changed. I learned the secret I was missing…I was overly general. I had too many topics on my blog! And through this God-given revelation…and it was only God. I realized there are 5 things that supercharged my blog in today’s blogging world. I don’t want you struggle like I did. Seriously. Too many tears were shed. Too many nights on Tailwind spent pinning with very little return on my blogging investment. And too many times I…

    How to Pursue Your Blog & Business When You Are a Mom

    When you’re a mom, finding time for the basics — sleeping, eating, pooping — is hard. Sure, at one point in your life you had other aspirations than being “just a mom,” but let’s face it, most days any dreams you had fall LOW on the totem pole of priority. But finding time to pursue your dream doesn’t have to be impossible. I’m a mom of (almost) seven children, I write a regular blog, have 9 published books on Amazon, go to conferences, speak occasionally at women’s events and sometimes even exercise…sometimes. I also homeschool, play with my kids and find time to go on dates with my husband. But…

    Jesus Blogger – 31 Days of Blogging Like Jesus Would

    Jesus Blogger, comes out of a strong desire to allow Jesus to infiltrate every aspect of my life, especially my writing career. I started blogging on and off in 2007, but got really serious after the birth of my fifth child in 2012. Today, I’m a homeschooling mom of six, so doing ANYTHING is a challenge…especially sitting in front of the computer. It’s like my children have a radar that goes off as soon as my butt hits the black pleather chair that says, “Mommy’s on the computer…let’s go need something.” I don’t want my kids’ childhoods to be filled with memories of begging their mom to get off her…

    Jesus Blogger Day 1 – Know Your Roots

    Okay, so you’ve decided to become a blogger. Or maybe you’ve been a blogger since 2011 like I have been. But let’s start at the beginning anyway. Not the beginning of your blog journey…the beginning of the Bible. The book of Matthew gives us an overview of the super long genealogy of Jesus. It’s the part we all skip right? Abraham was the father of Isaac. Isaac was the father of Jacob. Blah. Blah. Blah. *Eyes glaze over* Why is this part included in the Bible? And what the heck does it have to do with blogging? I believe it has EVERYTHING to do with blogging. And it is definitely…
