I can already tell that 2019 is going to be a good year for you and blogging. Why? Most people that want to run a blogging business aren't proactive. They aren't learning from anyone else or doing any research to see what it is they can do to take their blog to the next level. In this post, I'm going to share the 5 things that I've seen myself and every other professional blogger do.
I started the Allison Lindstrom blog back in 2015 when I was nursing my baby boy. It's been a long journey over the past three years. And I've learned a few things that I wanted to pass along.

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.

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.
