Blogging Frequency for newer bloggers - what is best?

Hello, BYP members!I need some advice. I went live with my blog on December 10, 2015, so I am fairly new at this. I have been posting regularly once per week, with occasional extra posts and a new feature I have introduced and am doing once per month in addition to my regular posts. In my online courses, such as Intentional Blog and Platform U, they say once a week is the least you should post. Now I have been told this morning from another source that once per month, twice at most, is all a…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I learned about 48 days.net, along with so many other things, at the April, 2011 Write to the Bank conference. I hope to make contact with other people who are doing things with their writing that I hope to do, and to contribute to and benefit from the positive energy I experienced this past week.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
My college degree is in mechanical engineering, and I worked in that field for a few years before we started our family. I have been a stay-home-mom and for many years, and now, I have a pending empty nest coming up in less than three years. I am working on finding my next path in life. I have been blogging and writing regularly for the past 8 months.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to have a profitable business that allows me to not only spend time with my family, but involves them as well. I have a blog entitled The 7 Year Adventure - A Positive Spin on Parenting Teens. My goal is to grow my platform and be able to monetize it to help others and grow a business.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to be able to better provide for my family, and I want to strive for the ability to give and help others in our community. Speaking and coaching have come to the forefront more recently in my vision for the future, for both my husband and myself.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I like to plan things out and be organized. If I have the vision, then I can make something happen. I am a perfectionist and very detail oriented, but I am practicing on letting some of that go in favor of accomplishing more. I also enjoy artwork and creating things with my hands. I am a high S and C on the DISC profile. I want to learn how to use those attributes to my advantage, so I can accomplish as much as possible, and help others in the process.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://7yearadventure.com
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
I am interested in growing my blog, starting a podcast, and coaching and speaking. I want to create video courses to help parents have better relationships with their kids, and help them enjoy their kids' teen years. I also have a lot of home schooling experience, and am interested in helping parents teach their children math effectively without fear or intimidation. I am visualizing an online series of video courses on how to do that.

Hi Anna,

 

I wanted to send a quick welcome to the Write it Forward, Real Success and Profit for Writers group. We're glad you're here!

 

The discussion forum in the Write it Forward group is packed with ideas, and is great place to get feedback on your work, ideas and questions. Jump into the conversations and let us know how we can help you reach your writing goals.

 

You might want to check out www.teenlifeministries.com. The site offers Bible lessons for youth ministers and parent leaders. It's a pretty ingenious and profitable site - and *could* generate some ideas on different ways to use your own Sunday school lessons.

 

I look forward to getting to know you!

 

All the best,

Erin Casey

Hello Anna,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

I'd also like to say that I am glad that we met at the Write to the Banks seminar. I enjoyed it a lot, and hopefully you did too.

I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, it sounds like you are interested in writing. If so, consider joining the Write It Forward. There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

Plus, you might want to check out Speak It Forward as well. It's another group I'm involved with that has a lot of activity taking place.

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
