Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a great week! This is the only week this month I don’t have a trip schedule which means that I have been working like crazy to get ahead! After attending the Launch conference a few weeks ago I have so many new ideas that I want to get started on. The hardest part is just finding enough time to get it all done and still make enough time for my family as well. I have found that waking up early is what works best for me, so this week I have been up at 4am every day! Are you an early riser too? What other ways do you successfully juggle blogging with taking care of your family?

One of the projects I have been working on is a fairly major update to my blogging book, How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul). If you have already bought the book you will be able to get the update from Amazon for free when it is ready. If you have not bought it yet, you may want to grab it now while it is still only $4.99, as the price will be going up at that time! The updated version will have even more helpful info about building traffic, social media marketing, and more ideas for monetization. There will also be a whole new chapter full of essential info on turning your blog into a business!
