How They Blog Interviews Liz Griffin

Liz calls herself a naptime abolitionist. And that’s not an exaggeration. She fights human trafficking, talks with law enforcement while making peanut butter sandwiches. She lived in Siberia, rounded up goats in Mongolia on a horse with a stranger and she once babysat for a murderer.

These aren’t sensationalist statements. This is her life. And the beauty of it all is the wisdom she gleans and shares from every crazy experience life throws her way. The basis of any good blogger is a life well lived. Liz passes that test with flying colors.

(Stop here and go read those posts I just linked to up there. They are so. good.)

She is a fantastic writer.

I know you’ll enjoy Liz’s fresh perspective on life and blogging today! Today, think about your stories and your life experiences and how you can use those to bring hope, encouragement and truth to your readers.

A Ridiculous Picture of Kat and What It Has To Do With Your Blog

Last weekend I had the privilege of speaking at the Declare Blogging Conference. Honestly? It was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended. It was well run, big enough to be exciting, small enough to not be overwhelming and packed with great information and opportunities to connect.

I taught a session called “Blog Like A Ninja: Maximum Impact, Minimum Effort.” As the title infers, it was all about being an effective and efficient blogger.

One point that I made was about the 3 hats that every blogger wears and why we need to know WHEN to wear them. Being the dork that I am, I actually brought hats and wore them. I told everyone to NOT instagram it, but apparently they heard, “INSTAGRAM THIS! NOW! HURRY! GO! GO! TAKE A PICTURE! NOW! POST IT! RIGHT AWAY!”

So, you get my little nugget of info as well as a visual that may wish you could unsee.
