Talk to you soon,
Kat, I have a blog, simplysacredseasons.com. I don’t post very often because I am insecure about how I am doing it and my content. This sounds like a great way to gain some confidence and ideas on how to make it better. Thank you for this opportunity!
I am a mature Early Childcare Education student about to graduate and have been flirting with websites and blogs. I have used weebly to create some sites for my classes. My best two are: http://www.missnaiomi.com/ and an advocacy project http://childcaresolutions.weebly.com/. I would love to blog on my daily journey and if I could earn some money for it – that would be a bonus! I would love to know what works and what doesn’t, how bloggers find the time, how do you make money? These are just for start…
Hi Kat, I’m always curious about the planning aspect of blogs and how much time goes into that. How far in advance do bloggers write their posts before posting them? Most of the blogs I read appear to have been written the day or the night before and I’m curious if that is realistic and the norm. Can’t wait to follow along and learn!
I do not have a blog but have recently started reading a few. Yours is by far my favorite 🙂 I’m serious! My questions for established bloggers are mostly related to getting started: What are the best resources for new bloggers as far as learning the ins and outs of getting up and running? What if you think you’re OK at writing but not great…will you develop your skills are you go or should you be a master writer at the beginning? What’s a “linky?” 🙂 Just a few to get started…
I’ve seen a few blogs written by moms who homeschool numerous children. As one myself, I am curious how they work that into their already busy day of teaching and little ones needs without taking away time from the schooling day, thier family and what they need to do. How much time do they carve out, how do they plan, what tools do they use, and what is a realistic beginning goal? Also a general “blogs: do’s and don’ts” would be handy 🙂
I am right here too. Homeschooling 5. I want to know how bloggers balance it all. From the readers point of view it appears they have it all together, which I know is not true, but what does it really look like behind the scenes. No holding back! 🙂
Happy Friday! I am fairly new to blogging and learn more about it every day. I have a fun blog for parents entitled Bacon & Kids – http://baconandkids.wordpress.com/ and one for my dental consulting business http://haydenconsulting.wordpress.com/. I want to make the switch to wordpress.org but have been dragging my feet, so worried about making a mistake. I LOVE learning from other bloggers and appreciate all the helpful advice. Thank you for the opportunity !
Adding to the great ideas above… How to manage family (I have two little ones) and a private practice with blogging. I’d like to make it worth my time to share my ideas, so I guess I need tips on how to grow…
Hey Kat! This is a fun idea! I have great vision for my blog – http://www.acapturedlife.com – but am seriously short on time! I also wonder if I’m over-thinking the process and spending way too much time processing a post before letting it fly. If I’m going to take time to write, I want to be sure that it’s time well spent. I would love insight into streamlining the vision and purpose of writing so the blog’s content is clean and clear, drawing readers in, and really making it worth their time too!
hi Kat! I have a blog, but insecurity seems to hold me back quite a bit. looking forward to learning from you!
Hi Kat, This seems to be timely for me both in my personal life and ministry. Insecurity and a lack of discipline seem to be my two biggest hurdles to blogging. I was encouraged to start blogging 4 years ago after coming into lay leadership at church, but I find myself dancing around actually writing. I guess all that to say time is priceless and vision a must. Thank you so much for this opportunity to learn. http://www.mysimplewalk.blogspot.ca
Looking forward to all that is ahead! I appreciate all you do to help us along!
I LOVE this idea!! Thank you for going on this journey… and THANK YOU for inviting us along with you! I’m so excited about this!
Kat, I just started my blog in January of this year, 2013! I only have a few posts, (just returned from a 2 week vacation and only schedule two posts during that time) but my goal is to be REAL. What a wonderful example of this you are!
Reading many of the above posts it seems like there is a common denominator…insecurity! One word of encouragement I have for all of us is this…don’t let Satan discourage you and move you from what God is leading you to. I actually talked about this in my first two posts. You can check it out at http://www.kellystoner.com and let me know what you think. Please be real with me as that is the only way that I (or any of us) can grow into being the person Christ desires for us to be! Blessings!
My mentor tells me, “Sometimes God answers your thoughts.” Well this new venture of yours is an answer to my thoughts AND prayers. I have been blogging for a few years, but only with a blog page attached to my ministry website (I write Bible studies and speak). Next month I am launching my first ever REAL blog! It is called A Journey Not My Own (www.ajourneynotmyown.com). I am all ears and ready to learn! Thanks for allowing me to be on the launch team and have a way to grow in the blogging process. I am so stoked!
I have been wanting to start a blog that I could talk about spiritual things but also encourage families like mine who have kids with life threatening food allergies with tips and recipes. I did not want to make a food blog only but also about other things such as spiritual things. I have wondered how do bloggers bridge different topics? The hardest part is finding a name for my blog. Its been a year and half and I am still cant come up with a name. lol 🙂 How did they find the name for their blog? I am looking forward to this site! 🙂
This is such a great idea! I’d love to hear how these bloggers talk about their frequency of posting– i.e., do they think posting every day is best, from both a traffic standpoint and from a time-it-takes-to-write standpoint?
Kat, this is so great. I have been blogging for about two years on and off. I have been battling with knowing how to design a blog and make it look catchy. I love love love spending time reading about other bloggers and would love to do the same by sharing my little world.
Thanks again for making this happen!
Hi Kat! I am following you from your Inspired to Action blog (love it) and am hoping to learn more about blogging. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. 🙂
Thank you so much! I’ve been blogging off and on for quite a few years but it’s never evolved into anything special. I’m working on changing that and have begun a rereading effort just yesterday. I have downloaded your planning kit, watched the video, signed up for the e-course, and started listening to your podcasts. You are a wealth of information!! Thank you
