Guest Post: Tips for Beginning Bloggers

Note from Lana / Lifestyle Queen Bee: I have a secret to share. Lifestyle Queen Bee is NOT my first blog. I started a blog 8 years ago when my then-boyfriend (now husband) and I were on our journey of buying our first home. It was a big deal for us both because we were 24 years old, buying our first home, living together for the first time AND living away from our parents for the first time (it was also the first time I’ve ever moved in my life!). I thought sharing the journey would be a great way to share our story with our friends and maybe inspire others to start their own home buying journey. Well, I sucked at it. HARD. I wrote in a voice that wasn’t mine, saying things I thought my readers wanted to read. So I quickly abandoned it. Fast forward to last June, when I got bitten by the blog bug again. After some internal debate, I went for it but this time, being sure I was writing in my voice, about things I was interested in and I’m happy to say I’m still at it! All this to say, Continue reading “Guest Post: Tips for Beginning Bloggers”

Not to mention all the research you typically conduct trying to figure out the best platform for your blog, your niche, etc. Today, Guest Maurine Anderson is helping cut all the guesswork out as part of Continue reading “Guest Post: How to Have a Professional Looking Blog on a Low Budget”

One of my favourite things about podcasts is how there is literally something for everyone. You can listen to podcasts to help you become a better cook, friend, employee or parent.
