Are you looking to start a blog, but don’t know where to begin? Or maybe you have one, but you feel like you’re stuck in a rut–it’s so hard to get to that next level!
I know how you feel (because I’ve been there!) And I know you have too, because I receive so many of the very same questions!
That’s why I decided to create “Ask Jess,” a weekly video column exclusively about blogging! Each week, we’ll have coffee together (I’m often in my PJ’s, total disclaimer) and discuss one reader’s question each week–ranging from topics like finding your voice, choosing a blog platform, using social media, building an audience on your blog, and just how to keep your head on straight!
Having a blog is something that most deem out of reach for themselves, simply because it’s nearly impossible to wrap your mind around where to start, how to tackle your long list of to-do’s to get started, to get that new project off the ground, or finally bite the bullet and splurge on a new camera–there’s always something holding you back, whether you’re just starting out, or you’ve been blogging for years.
And I’m certainly no expert by any means, but I am an open book-er, blog? (And I’ve been through A LOT of trial and error.) I learn something new about blogging almost every day, and I’m HAPPY to share that with you!
Here’s a little taste of what you can expect each week below, with the very first episode of Ask Jess! (You’ll also find out why there is a SUPER creepy poster behind me.)
READY TO SIGN UP? POP YOUR EMAIL IN THE FORM BELOW TODAY, AND YOU’LL ALSO RECEIVE MY MINI BLOGGING GUIDE: 10 THINGS I WISH I WOULD’VE KNOWN WHEN I STARTED BLOGGING, TO GET YOU STARTED!
The concept is simple!
Sign up for the “Ask Jess” email list below. To get started, pop in your name and email address in the form below, then, pour your heart out in the question form–tell me, what’s the biggest blogging challenge you’re facing right now?
This helps me understand how I can help you and your blog in the very best way possible!
Then, every Friday, I’ll pick one reader’s question per week to answer and expand upon. It’ll be Q&A Friday, right in your inbox! If you wish to remain anonymous in the event that your question gets chosen, that’s completely fine, just let me know! On the flip side, if you’d like me to publish a link back to your blog in the newsletter, I’m happy to do so! (Just leave that at the end of your question!)
After that, email as many questions as you have to Jess@TheGoldenGirlBlog.com, and we’ll keep the fun going week after week!
SO, SIGN UP RIGHT NOW! YOU’LL GET MY FREE MINI-GUIDE: 10 THINGS I WISH I WOULD’VE KNOWN WHEN I STARTED BLOGGING,TOO!
So, why would I create something like this in the first place?
Because I remember almost throwing up as a pushed ‘publish’ on my first Instagram photo that told the world I had started a blog not too long ago.
But not just any blog, a lifestyle blog (and that included lot’s of style.)
Now, this doesn’t seem too out of the ordinary, especially for those who don’t know me personally.
But it was for me. It was for the girl who could have easily been voted worst dressed of her sorority pledge class just 4 years prior. The girl who didn’t live in a perfect apartment (in fact, everything in her apartment was a hand-me-down from her roommate’s very generous parents. Perfect for a broke twenty-something, but not home tour material if you know what I mean). That girl barely knew how to work a point-and-shoot camera, let alone a DSLR! She didn’t know any photographers, any existing bloggers, or have any connections of any kind.
And let me tell you, everyone starts at that point.
So I wish I would have had a source of information like a weekly Q&A email column. Hell, I wish some of my favorite bloggers would do it too right now, so I could learn from them as well!
That’s the best part of blogging. Sharing what you’ve learned, so it can help others grow and be inspired. That’s what it’s all about!
