Why I, an Independent Blogger, Love CoSchedule

Heads up: In the words of the Mega-Reverend John Oliver, I’m not getting paid to say this. I’m just a fan.

Many of my readers and Instagram followers have been asking me about how to do things like set up successful blogs and accounts lately.

As you may or may not know, blogs and social media are things that I do both on my own time and at my full-time job. Which means that I usually spend a lot of time coming up with systems that can make my life as easy as possible.

The Girly Geek’s Guide to Blogging

The Girly Geek’s Guide to Blogging

In the last few weeks, I’ve had a few different people ask me about any advice I have for people who want to start their own blogs.

Now, I know this is a little off-topic, but bear with me.

The only hint to this so far has been a pithy one-liner in my bio, but my day job involves a whole bunch of writing. Which means that I’m very familiar with the fact that once in a while, writer’s block happens.

I’ve actually been struggling a lot lately to come up with good things to talk about, and although just starting this post has given me about a million ideas, I’m committed now. Continue reading “Confessions of a Gaming Blogger”
