Here’s an article that I wrote for #SWAY (formerly The #SITS Girls), all about Productivity Tools That Will Change Your Day. Consider how much time people spend skimming through articles about Productivity, Organizational/Time Management Techniques and Morning Routines for Success.
This site’s purpose is “Helping Bloggers and Creative Entrepreneurs discover their ‘Passion Niche‘ then, how to launch a profitable online business within that niche and ROCK IT!” Naturally, you’ll find blog posts on this site with tips and tricks for Newbie or Professional Bloggers.
Do you love coming up with topic ideas for your blog?
Do you spend hours finding the perfect image for your blog post?
If you’re anything like me, blogging isn’t a chore but a fun and exciting opportunity. You pour your heart into your blog post and work tirelessly to promote your blog to reach your target audience.
For most bloggers, trying to earn some extra cash isn’t on their mind when they first start out.
Guess what Muses?! I am extremely excited to share with you, this article that I recently wrote for #SWAY (formerly, The SITS Girls). First of all, in the off-chance you are unfamiliar with The SITS Girls (SITS stands for The Secret in The Sauce), it’s a website & community founded in 2008 with a simple goal. They set out to “create a space where bloggers could find their tribe and grow their audience.
Getting traffic to your blog is probably not the first thing that crosses your mind once you’ve made the decision to start blogging. You’re all about getting your voice heard, your brilliant ideas out of your head and onto your keyboard. Your blog is up and running and you’ve started crafting awesome posts with equally amazing visual content! That’s all you need right?
Wrong. What do you think Bloggers are doing on social media all day,
Yesterday was the day of the week that I follow a weekly routine for keeping my Pro Blogging Biz organized. I just call it my “get organized day” but it could definitely use a cooler name, if you want to give it one! It’s the same day of every week, where I go through all of my unopened emails from the 7 days prior to this one. I also go through my browsers’
It’s finally here! I say finally because it literally feels like I’ve been working on this guide and the two other how-to guides in a 3-part series focusing on Twitter Domination, forever!

One day, you decide to start freelancing. Maybe you lost your job, and maybe you quit your job. Maybe you can’t afford childcare or maybe you don’t want to use childcare.

If you’re looking for ways to make money with your blog the good news is, there are plenty of ways available. Some avenues are simple and quick but may only bring the kind of money that will cover your business expenses. Other avenues are right on par with the “Tortoise & the Hare”, reminding you that “slow & steady wins the race.”
Most all professional blogs & websites, along with print magazines and newspapers, have an entire Editorial Department managing the Editorial Calendar for each section of the blog/website, magazine or newspaper. If someone in the Editorial Department happened to forget to publish an article at any of these news/media content sources, it would be chaos.
