Thank you so much to Lisa Marie of The Canadian Homeschooler for taking the time to share her blogging tips with us. I’m so excited to be featuring several bloggers over the next few weeks – real-life successful bloggers – and hearing their thoughts and tips about blogging! So, pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit back, and be inspired!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog:
When I started homeschooling my oldest child, I discovered that Canadian homeschooling resources were hard to find. I realized that if I was looking – others probably would be too. So The Canadian Homeschool began. Today, the mission of my site is to connect Canadian homeschoolers with each other and with resources that will help them on their journey.
Lisa Marie’s most popular post involves creating all-encompassing Unit Studies, check it out!
What is ONE piece of advice I would give to a new blogger starting out in the homeschooling niche?
Find something that makes you unique from all the other homeschooling bloggers. It could be the number of kids you homeschool, your child’s learning needs, your method and approach to teaching, your geography, your faith…. find something you can take and own that will make you stand out.
What is one of my favourite blogging tools/resources and why?
The biggest thing that has pushed my blogging to the next level is accountability. Joining a mastermind group that meets every other week to inspire and support each other, talk through challenges and brainstorm together, keep each other on task to reach our goals, combined with my best blogging buddy who is keeping me accountable every day has moved me forward more than anything I’ve ever invested in or used on my own. Find people with the same mindset as you, who are working on similar goals – whether in the same niche or not, and work together to reach those goals!
How Do I Make Money Through My Blog?
I make money on my blog mostly through products and affiliate promotions. I create Canadian-centric learning resources, usually focused on areas that are harder to find things for – like geography and history.out!
