I’ve had the honor of teaming up with 30 other top bloggers to produce this new eBook! This resource is basically a blogger’s “how-to” manual to help you start and maintain a successful blog. It’s literally packed full of tips and advice from 30 influential and successful bloggers.

And while there are several homeschooling contributors, this book is by no means just for homeschoolers, but it is for all bloggers out there looking for a great ‘how-to’ guide to improve their blog!

Each of us tackled a topic that we were most familiar with, so when you combine all of our brain power….whew! You know the iBlog eBook is an excellent resource from some serious blogging experts!

I’ve personally been blogging for about 3 years now, and still don’t know all there is to know about blogging. It definitely doesn’t help that online industry is a constantly changing beast. So I was so excited to receive my copy of this eBook to learn more about all those aspects of blogging that I am still learning.

Thanks to the collaboration of these awesome bloggers, we have truly created a valuable resource for all bloggers, both veteran and newbies!

My Contribution:

I was so excited to write a chapter titled “Using Freebies to Build Your Blog”.   As you all know I love to offer freebies to you all, and sort of stumbled into selling my own products as well!

I never intended for my blog to grow like it has, and I certainly wasn’t strategically creating freebies to try and gain followers. Nor am I a business or marketing genius. But looking back, I can honestly say that offering freebies was something that helped build my blog even though I was blissfully unaware of their power! So in this chapter I hope to share how you can create your own freebies to share on your blog as well.

I was also blessed to contribute to the chapter on “Selling Your Own Products along side with Cindy West from Our Journey Westward, and Amy Maze from Living & Learning at Home. If you haven’t already checked out their blogs, I highly encourage you to do so. Both are full of wonderful homeschool resources!

And as most of you know, I also have created quite a bit of curriculum which I am able to sell in my Confessions of a Homeschooler store as well. While I hadn’t ever anticipated selling my own products when I first started blogging, it was a natural progression that has definitely blessed our family. So in this chapter I share my story on how I create and sell my products so you might be encouraged to do the same!

 

So let’s get to the eBook shall we?

I think the best way for me to explain the awesomeness of this book is to share our Table of Contents. There are 37 chapters with close to 400 pages full of helpful of information.

We bloggers share everything we have learned along our blogging journeys, from photography tips, how to get traffic, best practices for researching and organizing your content, joining link-ups, writing a media kit to attract advertisers, how to balance blogging, marriage, motherhood and much much more!

Seriously, I don’t think there’s a topic we missed in regards to blogging!

  1. I’d love to learn about the nuts & bolts of getting a blog up and running – everything from figuring out yoru niche to choosing a blog name to growing a readership.

  2. Hello there. Having read the Table of Contents of the book, I am very confident to say I would love to have a copy for myself. Can I get this in a paperback version? Are you planning to sell it internationally? I am from the Philippines and the idea of blogging as one’s ministry is just, awesome.

  3. I would love to learn how to blog in simple terms – not for selling just for crafts, family tree, etc etc. Is this book downloadable if not will you be willing to send to Australia.

    1. Hi Kendell.
      I’m in Australia and I just downloaded the book. Its $7.99 USD which works out less than $10. Cheap right? Just click on the iBlog picture above and you will be navigated to the iHomeschool site where you can purchase it. Once I was on the iHoeschool site I think I clicked on the iBlog tab and then selected purchase or something like that.

      I’ve just started reading it and have already found it a great resource. Good luck with your blogging.

      Best wishes

  4. I bought this book and was hoping for a bit more information on creating printables. I was wondering if you could tell me where you found the clipart for your curriculum? Most of the clipart I’ve found online is very restrictive on how it is to be used. Or did you design all of your own clipart? Thanks so much!
