We will give you lots of tips that will help you make the most of your blogging efforts.

Love your podcasts. I so agree on how boring blogs are which are written in the third person. I feel they are not authentic. Keep on doing your awesome work!

I was so impressed with how my client used her blog for her acting class studio, I finally got my web site going and started blogging for myself and it’s fun! I think you just saved my life though, because I forgot to get readers by guest posting. Thanks for all your great tips and encouragement, I also prefer humility and informality, was afraid possible lack of ego in my blog “voice” was why it got no response but it probably is just getting no traffic!

    Hey Tricia, yes, guest posting is a great way to get eyeballs on your site. It may take some time though, so don’t give up on it. Its also great for getting links to your site which are indicators for search engines. If you have a guest post idea for my blog, let me know!
