Today I have a quick and easy tip for you—make sure you take a social media break or do a smartphone cleanse from time to time. It's super easy when you're focused on building a blogging business to constantly be connected to technology. Whether it's sitting at the computer or staring at your phone screen it can become addicting. And, I get it. There's a lot to take care of.
On Day 25 we talked about the four main ways that bloggers make money. Today I want to go a little deeper into the conversation and talk about the difference between active income and passive income. As you grow your blogging business you should be able to quickly identify the difference.
Today I'm going to share some of the main income avenues and ways that bloggers monetize their brands. If you want to generate revenue for your blogging business, you can take these ideas and see what direction you want to move in. The whole point is for you to identify what options you have to turn your blog into a profitable blogging business. You can grow your income as a blogger!

Today I'm going to address a topic that we all know is important, but many bloggers still struggle with—exercise! Since we all know the importance of it I'm not going to go into all the details about the positive benefits of fitness. Instead, I want to stress why it's so important that we take time to be active and get fresh air. It's too important for me not to include it in the series.
Today we are going to dive into Pinterest. This is my #1 social media platform when it comes to traffic and conversion. So, I would be crazy to do a series on blogging tips and not share with you how to harness the power of this platform. If you aren't on Pinterest yet, it's time to set up a business account. Or, if you only have a personal account it's time to convert it to a business account.

Today I'm going to share with you an incredibly valuable tip that helps me get my work done faster—batch processing. This is a scheduling strategy that helps you separate your tasks in a way that allows you to stay focused on one thing at a time.
This is a topic that I believe is really important to address in this 30-day series. As a mom when you are trying to grow a blogging business there's a good chance that you will experience mom guilt from time to time. Mom guilt is when you start to feel guilty about all the time you are spending on growing your business instead of doing other "mom" related things. You start to have different priorities and worry that it's negatively impacting your child in some way.
Today's tip is to write the content that people are actually looking for. Good bloggers write blog posts that they are inspired to write. But, good business bloggers write blog posts that people are actually looking for. They write valuable content that will really change people's lives. That's the type of content you want to write.
Today's tip is not just a great mom hack, it's also a great life hack for kids. And, to be honest, this wasn't my own idea, it came from my mother. It's a really effective way to provide your kid with something to keep them busy so you can work on building your blogging business.
I know this is a topic that a lot of people don't like to address, but it's so important for getting your blogging business off and running. Today you are going to sit down and make a list of goals for your blogging business.
We touched a little over the past 13 days on how difficult it can be to keep a good balance when building a blogging business. You have a family that needs your attention and a never-ending to-do list of blogging tasks that are just waiting to be done. It's easy to get super focused on one or the other and lose track of what you should be doing. That's why you need a person in your life that can help you put things into perspective.
I know this tip looks like it has nothing to do with blogging and that's true. This is not about blogging. But, it is about running a business. Building a successful blogging business doesn't always have to do with blogging and making money.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… and also the craziest! There are cookies to bake, trees to decorate, concerts to attend, and the list goes on and on. This is the time of year when it’s easy to let your blogging business fall by the wayside. You might want to focus on your business to grow your income, but there’s a lot competing for your attention right now. So, today we’re going to talk about blog automations.
I'm really protective of my readers (AKA all of you). Your faith in my word means a lot to me so it's pretty hard for companies to get me to promote one of their products. I have to really believe that their product going to provide value for you and be something that could benefit you as you build your blogging business.
Today's tip might be one that you might want to ignore but really shouldn’t. On Day 12 I'm challenging you to sacrifice one thing. It needs to be something that you love, that you enjoy doing, maybe something that you always do.
We are going to start off Day 11 with an assignment. I want you to block off some time over the next couple of days to sit down and create a list of 26 blog post ideas. It could take you some time and you might not be able to get it all done at once. So, reserve some time over at least two days to make sure that it happens.
Now, obviously micromanaging is not dangerous as in your life is at risk, but it can have a negative impact on your life and business. When I learned not to micromanage it made a huge impact on both my personal growth and business growth. And, that's why I am addressing this as part of our 30-day series.
We spend the majority of our days running around getting things done. So, when you try to throw building a blogging business into the mix it's important to get used to the idea of swallowing your pride and learning how to ask for help.
There are two questions that I know many people ask before they start a blog: (1) 'Can I really make money blogging?' and (2) 'How much does it cost to start a blog?' Today I am going to break down for you the cost of blogging when you are just starting out.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret of mine—I don't always like sitting down to write. Does that surprise you? A lot of people get the impression that bloggers just love sitting down and pouring over their keyboards with words just spilling out of their fingers. Don't get me wrong, there are times when it feels like that. There are times when I can't seem to get the words out fast enough. But, then there are plenty of days when I sit down and just can't seem to force myself to start writing. Can you relate?
If you have been asking yourself questions like "What do I write about?", "What blog post ideas will my readers connect with?", or simply "Where do I start?" don't worry. I have you covered. I'm going to share 6 theme ideas that readers love. These are general ideas which will allow you to easily tailor them to your category or niche. You can just choose one to use on your first, or next, blog post and get started.
Yes, you read that right. Today's topic is meal planning. Yes, I know it has nothing to do with blogging. And, yes, blogging is important. And, while you may have thought blogging was all I was going to talk about for this series, we have one thing that makes us different than many other bloggers. We have children! There are these little humans depend on us to give them love, attention, clean clothes, and the food that they need.
Starting a blog is overwhelming. There is no way around it. There is a lot to do. It's hard to know where your time should be spent and it's really easy to feel completely lost. But, it doesn't have to be that way. The reason so many people find themselves in this position is that they are starting off all wrong.
Are you struggling to make blogging a daily habit? Do you feel overwhelmed with a never-ending to do list? I know the feeling! Like many of you, I’m busy, juggling a full-time job, my blog/Etsy shop, and my personal life.
