I’m super excited to be working in the upcoming weeks to add a more personal touch to Blogelina. One way that I plan to do that is to start sharing monthly income reports and blogging goals & plans. I have a couple of reason for doing this – one, I sincerely hope it will encourage you to see what is possible with YOUR blog and two, because I need some accountability!
My productivity in the past couple of months has been a LOT lower than I would like it to be so my hope is that by sharing my monthly blogging plans with you, I’ll be more focused to actually get those things done.
That’s a big struggle I’ve had lately – I have SOO many ideas rolling around in this head of mine for what we can do to better help bloggers through Blogelina. And they’re all amazing ideas! BUT… I only have so much time to spend blogging each day and my amazing idea to time ratio is way off.
Can you relate at all?
Have you found any solutions for finding focus? I’d love to hear them in the comments below!
Anyway, I’m super excited about the ideas that I’ll be focusing on in June (you can read more about them below) and for the new changes coming to Blogelina!

Blogging Plans For June 2016:
Blog To Biz Hive E-Course – I’m SUPER excited to be a part of Melyssa’s course. I love checking out new trainings and learning more ways to not only grow Blogelina, but also to help other bloggers grow their blogs. Melyssa has seen amazing success with her blog – and in a short time, too – so I’m excited to learn from her! How much fun would it be to take the course together? Want to? CLICK HERE to register and then let me know that you’re in!
Weekly eNewsletter – I LOVE tips and ideas that are short, to the point, and easy to apply – BUT give me some great results. I’m pumped to start offering a weekly enewsletter to Blogelina subscribers that will hopefully provide just such information. PLUS, we’re going to be taking subscriber questions – and actually answering them – in each week’s newsletter. So, if you’re looking for actionable content you can actually apply to your blogging, be sure you’re on the list for Blogelina updates! P.S. I’m going to be giving this eNewsletter planner a try to help me stay organized and on track.
Monthly Blogging Reports – I’m excited to start posting monthly about what’s working here at Blogelina and what we’re working on – all in the hopes that it will give you some insight into what it takes to run a successful blog – and to help inspire you to see the possibilities! Also, I think I need some accountability to help me be more productive.
Launch “Conquer WordPress” Training Program – We get TONS of requests for help with WordPress. We’re putting together a training program to walk you through how to use your WordPress blog. I run into so many people who are actually afraid to really use their WordPress blogs to the full potential because they don’t want to “break anything”. This training will help take that fear away and give you the confidence you need to use your blog the way it was meant to be used! Plus, we’ll go over things like Optimizing your blog for SEO and for speed, making sure your blog is user-friendly, and finding ways to make WordPress work FOR you and actually make your blogging easier. Interested in joining us? CLICK HERE to get on the waiting list for all the updates!
Improve My Email Management – Working through all the emails that come through inbox is a HUGE drain on my time. I’m excited to be looking into a couple of tools this month that will hopefully help me be able to keep from spending so much time in my email. I’ll keep you posted on what I find!
My Favorite Finds This Past Month:
Blog To Biz Hive Course – Seriously, like I mentioned above, I’m SUPER excited about this course! Here’s just a little of what the course will teach:
- Specific systems that Melyssa used to grow her blog to $500,000 last year
- Rapidly grow your blog with fresh strategies
- Email growth hacks to boost your traffic AND your income
- The strategies you need to create a (more) profitable blog over the next few months
The course is only available until June 14th – so, if you’re wanting to take your blog to the next level, don’t delay joining! If you try Melyssa’s systems and they don’t work, she offers a 60-day money-back guarantee.
SendOwl – I get asked a lot of questions about how to sell products online. It’s by far one of the most profitable ways to make money blogging BUT all the tech stuff of actually getting set up to sell can get in the way for a lot of people. Which is why I LOVE SendOwl. It’s super easy to set up your products and you can even set up an affiliate program to boost your sales even further. If selling online is in your blogging plan, be sure to give SendOwl a try! Want to see SendOwl in action? It’s what we’re using to sell over at Blogfetti.com.
