I recently finished the first installment of Real Moms Making Real Money Blogging, At Home, In Their Pajamas (The Mommy Blogger Next Door Book 1), by Stephanie O’Dea. Stephanie ask a few of us to check out the first installment on her behalf. And the pleasure was all mine!
I was first introduced to Stephanie via her year of slow-cooking blog back in 2008. While slow-cooking wasn’t my thing back then, her household organizational tips were invaluable. I came to embrace what she calls the “Daily 7” and still attempt to follow those principles today. I adore the simplicity of her systems!!! Eventually she also won me over on the slow-cooking front. I now have a Facebook group for making friends with your slow-cooker in which we share Pinterest pages and websites with great recipes! Join us here!
But, let’s chat about Stephanie’s book for a bit.
Want to start a blog?
Have absolutely NO idea where to start?
Feeling overwhelmed by the amount of content you are reading from the blogging gurus on how to start a successful blogging adventure?
I know. I get it. I labor over this every day.
And then came Stephanie’s book!
Stephanie’s strength is that her writing sounds like you are just swapping ideas with a friend over coffee. I found that to be true in her slow-cooking blog, as well as her content covering home organization tips.
Trust me when I say, you will walk away from this read feeling as if you now have some basics from which to begin:
- finding your niche
- finding your voice/brand
- social media tips
- time management advice
- how to make money
- and more!
All with Stephanie’s conversational style, in what I consider to be a blogging primer for those of us who want to blog from home, and perhaps even earn some coin while doing so!
