There are countless benefits to having your own blog regardless of your goals – read my full post on starting a blog here. It’s an amazing outlet to share your life even just with family and friends. You can also make a living running your own blog. Looking to start your own? Here are my must have blog resources:



Any course from Blog Clarity. Pinning Perfect was a game changer for me. Here is the testimonial I shared on my LinkedIn page.

“My corporate marketing experience includes creating content for digital campaigns. I’ve developed entire strategies and managed the entire process from editorial calendars to editing to promoting the content through various social channels. So when I was laid off last summer and decided to launch my own blog and brand, I thought it would be an easy transition. Boy was I wrong. Thankfully, I found the women at Blog Clarity and took their Pinning Perfect class. This class is so much more than just a Pinterest how-to. It took my blog game from newbie to polished in a month. My Pinterest views went from 1k monthly impressions to over 350k in 6 months. And the biggest outcome from this course, one that I’m most excited about, is that the knowledge I gained from it helped me land my first consulting client. So worth the investment in me, my brand and my business. Check it out for yourself if you are a blogger or a brand looking to take you traffic to the next level.” Alice Faggi – Nuggetlands
