Welcome back to another episode of Blogpreneur! Last week, Holly chatted with Alissa Marquess. They talked a lot about having an email newsletter for your blog, how it can help you connect with your readers and make money blogging. It was a really inspiring chat for those who don’t already have a newsletter.
For this week’s Hangout, Holly welcomed Kelli Miller to the virtual stage.
Kelli Miller is a mom of three and can be found at 3 Boys and a Dog and Southern Mom Cooks. She co-hosts a Google Plus series called Learn to Blog (on Tuesdays at 10am CST) and was one of the contributors to the Mom Blog Money Blog series we ran at here at Business 2 Blogger. She started blogging after quitting her full time job and very quickly after that began reaching out to brands. Kelli can also be found on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus.
Kelli is a big, big, big fan of the editorial calendar (and regular calendars) and stays very organized with her many online ventures. She is also very involved with different blog tribes.
Holly and Kelli discussed how they use specific blog tribes to promote themselves and others online. Kelli defines herself as mean in her blog tribes but acts this way for a reason as she explains in the hangout. She also talks about how open everyone is in some of the blog groups and how this helps everyone involved. If you’ve been nervous about joining a blog tribe, I think Kelli will help you understand why they are important.
Since Holly and Kelli both host Google Plus hangouts, they spent some time discussing why they do hangouts and how those are becoming a blog tribe in themselves.
They also talked a little bit about their lives as bloggers and how it affects their families. You know, like when everyone has to pause before eating dinner so you can photograph food.
Enjoy the hangout!
