It’s no small feat to launch a blog. Especially not if your ultimate goal is to reach a few more people than just your family and close friends. It takes work, a little bit of strategy and a whole lot of trial and error.
I started my blog as a personal one where I just recorded thoughts and happenings those who knew me would appreciate. I never had any intention of making it a drop more than that. And honestly, I don’t know how or why I did.
What I do know is this: I am blessed and honored by every reader who passes through the halls of this space.
But what if you’re standing there with your pretty little blog in hand and you just don’t know where to go next? What if you want to share your voice with a broader audience or if you’re looking to bring in a little extra income? It’s hard to get your land legs when you feel like you’re floating in the sea of a million bloggers.
The good news is there is help available and it is practically free. Because $3.99 (introductory price) is as close to free as you’re likely to get for a manual that walks you through the steps.
Jacinda Vandenberg, of Growing Home, has put together a book that will guide you through the process of setting up a blog, creating a clean design, driving traffic to your posts and monetizing your site…all in simple terms even the beginner will understand. And catch this title: Growing Your Blog While Managing Your Home | The Ultimate Guide for Christian Mommy Bloggers. Pretty inclusive, right?
This is a revised, expanded and updated version of a book she put out back when I was getting started. I bought that book and devoured it. I applied her wisdom and teachings and found it to be right on the money. But here’s the thing…Jacinda has grown exponentially since the first publication.
Her blog now nets a five figure income and she has built and maintained a community of readers who love and trust her. What you’ll find in the book outlines how she did this, by the grace of God, without neglecting her family. My husband kind of likes me to hang out with people like this, who encourage me to budget my time while enhancing the budget.
There are 4 main segments to the book with a ridiculous amount of guidance tucked away within each:
- Creating a Vision and Maintaining A Schedule
- Content and Design
- Growth and Monetization
- Logistics and Legalities
Honestly, I’m not much for blowing smoke or swindling people out of their money. But I am out to help bloggers get that little nudge they’re needing. And I still chase down those nudges every chance I get!
You can grab your copy here for the introductory price of $3.99!!!!
