    • Emily says:

  7. Sabrina says:

    Thank you so much for the Post it was full of very pertinent information I have been overwhelmed with information to the point that I was scared to even venture out to start a blog now after reading this post I feel more confident and feel like I can actually do this I’m still very hesitant I’m scared I won’t have enough to say to actually keep blogging week after week that’s the only thing that really is holding me back is it hard to find get hard to find content to write about week after week month after month I’m concerned that there’s only so much that can be said about a subject without being redundant and repeating yourself very hesitant and scared

    • Emily says:

      I completely understand the way you are feeling, Sabrina. I used to feel that way too and the easiest way to ensure you are continually posting blog posts your audience wants is to look at what’s working in your niche. Are there certain posts that your audience is resonating with? Can you go more in-depth on a certain topic within that post? It’s all about listening to your audience, trust me, they’ll tell you what they want you to write more of and vise versa. Finding topics to blog becomes much easier once you just start! And if you get stuck you can always go to Google or Pinterest for inspiration.

  8. Admiring the hard work you put into your blog and detailed information you offer.
    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a
    while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Fantastic read!
    I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my
    Google account.

  9. Marvelous, what a website it is! This blog provides useful facts to us, keep it up.

  10. Order Online says:

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Kudos!

    • Emily says:

      The only one I personally use and enjoy using is called Yoast SEO which you may already be using. But I personally don’t use many plugins at all. For SEO I do use BuzzSumo, I also use an extension called Keywords Everwhere that gives you a break down of search volume for any keywords you type into Google.

  11. Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I
    must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend
    a good web hosting provider at a fair price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate
