How One Client’s Blog Got Her on TV

How One Client’s Blog Got Her on TV

Blogging is dead. That is what I have heard time and time again. No one looks for a blog anymore. How incorrect they are. Have you ever gone to Pinterest and clicked on a picture and an article pops up? Have you ever Googled some information you want to learn about and a person’s article pops up? Have you ever been scrolling through Facebook, saw something interesting, and clicked on the link and read about it?

My guess is probably!

Are you reading this right now?

Then, my dear friend, blogging is indeed alive and thriving.

I want to talk about the importance of being you, authentically you when you blog. I blog regularly. My blog varies on topic but is primarily centered on my life and holistic living with Young Living essential oils. Why is it important to be yourself when you are blogging? Like your true real self. I want to break it down into 3 simple reasons for you. I am all about quick, simple and easy, and this blog will be no different.

Why is it important to be authentic when blogging:

 

  1. It helps you continue to produce above average content
  2. It is more interesting to readers
  3. It will set you up for success when your blog takes off

 

So how will it help you to produce above average content? This one is relatively simple. If you are authentically blogging, you will be passionate about what you are writing about. If you are passionate about the topics you write about, there will be endless amounts of subjects at your fingertips. You will not suffer from lack of content. Will you have times when your brain feels like it is lagging? Absolutely! However, you will not lack content because, at the end of the day, this is your passion, this is you.

It will help engage your readers. When you are authentic, people will gravitate toward you. In a world full of people who are pretending to be something they’re not, be real. It will show through and dazzle your readers. Before you know it, you will have subscribers who want to continuously read your content.

What happens when your content is being read and more subscribers start to trickle in? It gets noticed. When this happens you’ll be in a position where you truly need to have been authentic all of those times blogging before it took off. Why? You never know who is reading it and which blog post they’re reading!

When you are authentic, you’ll be able to quickly reference a particular blog post you wrote and it will remind you of what it was that you were writing about on a more in-depth level. I want to give you an example of this.

I have been blogging for a while. A local news station saw my blog and LOVED it. They called me and they asked me to come on their show LIVE, on Martin Luther King Day. The blog they chose for me to highlight? It was one of my first blogs. If I were to not have been authentic, it would have been really difficult for me to get in front of cameras and pour my heart into the segment they gave me and be relatable to the thousands of viewers.

Since I was authentic, I was relatable. Since I was relatable, I know going further that there will be many more opportunities that will come across my path. Like this one. Writing a blog for a marketing specialist who works with individuals currently way above my pay grade.

Authenticity is key in life. Translate that necessity from life, into your blogging. You will be thankful that you were.

Together We Can Make a Difference

Together We Can Make a Difference

I recently embarked in a new business venture, Christian Bling. It’s a faith-based company that allows me to work from home.

Christian Bling offers opportunities to raise money for worthy causes, custom create pieces for foundations, and have faith inspired hosted or online gatherings that are hosted at parishes, schools or homes through distribution of their faith inspired, meaningful gift line of 200 items!

Alex and I have become so blessed by finding our faith. The happiness it has brought our home has been immeasurable. One of the best ways I can think to show my love of the Savior and our Heavenly Father is by wearing his love. That’s what I love about Christian Bling, it gives me an opportunity to share my faith in a way that I wouldn’t have been able to do before. I always get compliments on my jewelry and that leads to a conversation about God, what could be a bigger blessing?! Not only do they offer jewelry but they are so supportive of the military, which you know I’m huge on! They offer apparel, home decor, things for the guys in our lives, and so much more! Christian Bling is without a doubt one of my top 5 best decisions I’ve ever made, the first two being joining my church and marrying Alex <3

I want to ask you which organizations you care about? I want to help you help them. Send me an email (wearhislove@gmail.com) so we can start raising money for your favorite charity.

Together, we can make a difference.

"Sunday is family day"

"Sunday is family day"

I know I’ve been absent lately and I apologize. A lot has been happening at the Love Household.

You all know I’ve spent basically my entire life in education and then subsequently working in jobs I have loved. The problem was never the work but the employer. I have the hardest time working for people. Anyway, is why I decided to start my own marketing firm, A.Love Marketing.

However, this post is not about my firm but someone very special who helped launch my business. Sarah Cowan, of Scrounging Mama, is a long time friend. We’ve known each other since actual diapers. I knew I could trust her when it came to my logo design.

Which career do I choose and why does it matter to you?

Which career do I choose and why does it matter to you?

There’s this tendency of some people in my life to constantly say they don’t know what I’m doing or my interests are all over this place.

I do not disagree. I always thought I was so weird because I feel like I could be happy doing so many things. I’ve considered countless careers. In 2008, I went to Coastal Carolina and wanted to be a teacher. I didn’t hate it. I could enjoy a life as a teacher. But I want more. I almost applied to law school. I would love to be a lawyer. I think I would excel there. I also think the US is producing more lawyers than they have jobs for so it did not fiscally make sense to take out loans for a field that is shrinking and has a surplus of qualified applicants. I have considered pursing a career in politics. I have been in marketing. I think the two go to together well. I did great in marketing. I love writing so I have an MA in Journalism.

My interests are varied but I think they are all in a relatable field. The skill set required for each is similar. To excel in any of these areas you must be motivated, educated, an effective communicator, quick on your feet, etc. I could make an endless list of the similarities.

The thing that struck me most was the commentary on which people feel they are entitled to have. Then tonight, I saw this quote from the Female Entrepreneur Association.

You’re under no obligation to be the same person you were five minutes ago. – Unknown

"You're a real bread winner"

"You're a real bread winner"

So, when I began writing I wrote about staying home and how important it is to me to focus on my relationship with my husband. Well turns out, staying home means taking on way too many projects. More projects than a girl can handle. I’m doing more now than I did when I was working.

During Christmas Eve, a family member was asking what I was doing these days. I told her just working a few hours as a nanny and then a lot of volunteer work. She asked me what I was doing with my life. I was puzzled to say the very least. I responded with, “well I’m in school so I thought if I worked less it would be better for me.”

Then I got the realest advice. She told that I was wasting my time and was disappointed that someone who was about to finish her third degree was not advancing my career. That really struck me. I didn’t know what to say.

I have tons of experience but it’s been almost a year since I worked a “grown-up” job or one that at least improves my resume. She said whatever you do, do not let that one year mark hit.

Then, just yesterday, I text an old friend to say “Happy Birthday.” After the usual pleasantries he asked me what I’m doing with my life. He said “you’re a real bread winner. When I saw you were wasting talents staying home I was so angry.”
