Blogging. Is blogging still a viable option in 2019?

My answer: yes!

Content is king and no matter what, content will always thrive when there are businesses to be made. A blog is one place you know that when you write content, you own that content. Facebook can disappear tomorrow, thus all your content you've made on it.

Not a blog. When you blog, you create your own content that you can repurpose to any social media platform, no matter if it stays or disappears. Think of a blog as a safe haven for you to show off your amazing brilliance and skills to the world where no one can touch it!

But you might be wondering where you should begin. Where should you start and how should you grow your blog after you start? 

Here is a blog full of my own resources categorized by the word B.L.O.G: Brilliance, Listen, Organize, and Grow. Inside each category, you'll find resources where you can read more in-depth blog posts so you can finally start your blog in 2019!

B: Brilliance 

A blog is a place to share your brilliance, your expertise, and what lights you up. It's a place to grow community and friendship as you move through your entrepreneurship journey.
