I have to admit, when I first started blogging, I was relatively clueless. Okay, maybe completely clueless. I have always loved to write, but the concept of creating my own website where people would actually want to read what I had to say? Well, let's just say that stumped me.
There are about 10 zillion blogs out there, and unless you're someone really darn important, making a blog successful can be tricky. Let's face it: I am a mom. A wife. I have no Nobel Prize attached to my name, I am not a celeb, and I have never had sexual relations with anyone scandalous.
So taking these factors into consideration, HOW could I get my name out there? How could I build a blog that I could be proud of and my readers would enjoy? There's so much to learn, so much to do, and it can be pretty overwhelming at times. That's where Sadie Lankford comes to the rescue!
Who the heck is Sadie Lankford, and why should you care? First of all, she's freaking adorable. Just look at that smiling face! Why wouldn't you want to know more about her?! But good looks aside, Sadie has been a successful blogger for more than 10 years. I have been a reader of Sadie's blogs for well over a year now, and have always enjoyed her content, design, and general outlook on things. Like we say out here in Virginia, Sadie is "good people."
No, really....She IS. Sadie is so sweet that she has a blog dedicated solely to helping other bloggers develop their sites, social media presence, and become successful in the blogosphere. She loves helping other bloggers grow, and has recently written a great 15 page ebook called "Don't Clog the Blog" that is packed full of helpful advice, tips, and tricks to help others on their paths to Blogging Greatness.
Since Sadie is total awesome-sauce, she was kind enough to send me a copy of this ebook to review. I was immediately impressed by this book, since it contains must-know info that can help novice bloggers and experienced pros alike! While the content is fantastic, the thing I appreciate the most about this ebook is that it isn't stuffy, bland or boring. Reading this book was like talking to a friend who just happens to know a whole lot about blogging success. Sadie's tips are to the point, easy to understand, and in plain English. No hard to understand technical mumbo-jumbo here! Yep, Sadie just scored massive brownie points there!
Overall, I found Don't Clog the Blog to be an entertaining and enlightening read. While I am a member of a few great blogging groups, I am also very shy, and don't have the confidence to take my questions to the "head honchos". Yep, this is something I need to work on, and Don't Clog the Blog even pointed out the importance of developing relationships with other bloggers! This ebook answered so many questions that I didn't even know I had, and has given me some ideas on how I can start profiting from my own blogging ventures. I would definitely recommend this insightful and often humorous ebook to anyone who is interested in learning more about to stand out in the blogging world. A big thank you to Sadie for allowing me to check it out, and of course for all of her hard work, too!
You can purchase your very own copy of Don't Clog the Blog on Sadie Lankford's website. It's only a measly $3.99, but the knowledge within it is invaluable!
