    How To Be A Better Blogger In 5 Minutes Or Less

    I was going to title this post How Quick Draw McGraw Can Teach You To Be a Better Blogger. Then I realized I don’t really know much about Quick Draw McGraw, and that since I know nothing about him I can’t possibly justify making him the subject of my post claiming to help you be a better blogger. So I scratched it and decided to loose the what I thought was a witty headline, and just give it to you straight from the hip (because everything is better coming from the hip). And make you a HUGE promise that I can make you a better blogger in 5 minutes or…

    6 Painless Tips To Create More Effective FB Ads

    I promise this will be the most painless lesson about Fb Ads EVER. Up until a few months ago I hated Facebook. Loathed it. I mean the nerve of this “business” to actually try to make a dime off of all of us other businesses trying to make a dime! (Said like this, it makes me feel a little silly that I actually thought like this) Blasphemy! Okay now that you are done crying, complaining, and realizing that life in general is not fair, and nothing is essentially free, especially when you are trying to build a business or make money with your blog, put on your best big girl…

Because my life since leaving full-time grunt work almost 3 years ago, has been one long roller coaster ride. Fun.

    Launch, Learn, And Shut The Hell Up

    Sorry to be so harsh, but sometimes I just say what’s on my mind. (And by sometimes I mean ALL of the time) When it comes to making money from your blog and turning your passion into something that is actually making money for you, you have got to learn to launch, learn, and shut the hell up. Launching new products and services is essential to the success of your blog. What’s holding you back? Launch. Remember the kid at the pool who isn’t afraid to dive right in? No need to test the waters, think about it, or get in slowly. That kid knows one thing for sure: that…

    Why You Aren’t Making Money From Your Blog

    Honestly, it isn’t that hard to be making money from your blog… If you are spending your time pumping out posts, engaging with people, and working your social media then you should be making something. But why still, do people still manage to come up empty handed or making very little from all their hard work and passion? I say enough. There is no magic formula, there is no quick scheme, but if you put in the work, you should be making money from your blog. If you aren’t, then you it’s time to figure this thing out. Because I know that if I can do this, then anyone can…
