My Biggest Takeaways from Amy’s Interview:
First, everyone starts from zero, so don’t be discourage, your blog will grow!
Second, invest in your blog in the beginning!!! Most of us commit the same mistake, we want to invest zero in the beginning and then we end up spending a lot more later to correct our mistakes. The best investment you can do is to start right! I am so glad I hired a blog coach to help me before I even launched the blog, this made a huge difference.
Also, there are gazillion courses out there to help start building the right foundation or if you are looking into jumpstart your blog and increase your “territory” pretty quickly, take my Grow Your Blog Partying in 30 Days course – all my best blogging secrets are right there for you with tons of videos and tutorials plus an amazing exclusive mastermind group on Facebook.

Oh goodness, as a small fish in this very large pond I can so relate to so much of what Amy said here! Investing in yourself and joining groups are the best way to learn. The homeschool blogging world is so friendly, but you have to be willing to get out there and learn right alongside, ask questions (even when the answer seems so obvious), and invest in the tools that will help make things easier. It’s not easy, especially when the blog isn’t earning yet, but like any business venture, it does take money to make money. Even a few dollars for a small purchase can help in the long run. 🙂
I completely agree that we need to be willing to invest in ourselves. I think that’s a reminder that lots of moms need, whether we’re talking about our business ideas, our hobbies, or anything else. I know it’s much easier for me to cough up money to do ANYTHING for my husband and kids but when it comes to something for myself, it’s a much harder decision.
Michelle, I’m the same and I think most moms are. We have no problem spending on our children but for some odd reason we feel guilt if we spend money on us or on investing something for ourselves. I was really blessed to have my husband encouraging me to hire a blog coach to start with which was Rebecca Spooner from Hip Homeschooling! It was awesome. I’m so glad I did. 🙂
