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 is really hard! Blogging, keeping up with social media, daily “scopes”, keeping up with comments, emails, IMs, & DMs from your community, that reaches every corner of the web of which your Brand has a presence. It’s more than hard, it’s exhausting (Drink some coffee) but don’t you love it? If you don’t love it, if it doesn’t excite you to jump out of bed and write, write, write about your specific niche….talk,
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’
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. No matter what the reason, the fact is, you’re a freelancer now – and probably working from home. What does that mean for your social life?
For most of the working world, socializing is built into their schedule. On the subway, at the office,
There are always new and exciting productivity apps being launched and recently, I’ve been on a mission to try as many as I can to compare them to the collection of my daily helpful apps. Since there are so many new apps released from all around the world every day, I like to take a few weeks every 3-4 months to see if I find something so awesome, it ends up replacing a long-time favorite of mine.
What are some of your morning habits? Do you have a particular routine that you follow? Is there anything that you must do before your day can begin? No really, I want to know!
A while back I read a very inspiring article posted on Lifehack.org that fell completely in line with habits that either I already had in my morning or those I wanted to have.
Yes, Every Blogger Needs To Be On Social Media
I read somewhere recently that a Blogger should have a solid following on at least 3-4 major social media platforms before launching their website. They shouldn’t suddenly try to gain a following on a platform that’s new to them.
The idea being, you should already have a social media marketing strategy in place. It’s the same idea behind having 5-10 blog posts ready to publish before your site launches.
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. The same goes for your blog/website or any site that wants to be taken seriously. Okay, maybe chaos is going a little overboard if you’re just starting your blog or if your site isn’t a major,
Original content. That’s what having your own self-hosted website is all about, right? It’s a platform to open up and share about the topics that interest you and your audience. Of course, it takes a little time to gain an audience then check out Google Analytics for the week/month and see exactly which categories they respond to the most. But the question is if your audience say, only responds to 3 or 4 categories….do you drop the rest and never write about them again?
When I was 11 I began suffering from horrific panic attacks, as early as my first semester in sixth grade. My mother assumed I was nervous about a boy and didn’t think anything of it. Right….I was just throwing up every single morning as a result of these apparently harmless “butterflies”. It was “a pre-teen phase that (I) would soon grow out of,” she said. She was right. One day during the summer after sixth grade,
What Blogger doesn’t love a long, detailed list of blog topics and writing prompts, easily accessible from their laptop? It sure makes creating your editorial calendar for the month a lot easier! If you don’t already have an editorial calendar for your blogging business, I talk about several reasons you should be using one in my article, Why Your Blog Needs an Editorial Calendar.
The list of 100 Blog Topics that I’m referring to is from the CEO of Owner Media Group and NY Times Bestselling Author,
