How it Started….

About 16 years ago, I started selling on eBay.

I enjoyed it.

I made money doing it but wanted to branch out and find additional ways to make money online.

So I started to research on how to create a site.

I was not even sure of what topic (or niche) I was going to make the site about but I was determined.

As my research progressed, I got more and more confused and overwhelmed on the information on how to create a site.

It seemed like all the sites gave me the steps above but didn’t actually give me the “how to” even though the sites said it was for beginners.

So I created a free blog. I contact with people. I enjoyed doing it and slowly people found the site.

And I wrote my little heart out.

Then one day, I went to add some posts.

And It Was Gone!

In the blink of an eye, my free site was gone.

I had no backup. Nothing to show for my work.

To say I was devastated is an understatement.

So onward… I bought a domain, got web hosting, and created another site about the stuff I did on eBay using WordPress.

It started gaining traction. I enjoyed it. But due to my inexperience, I forgot one important thing for the site.


Hackers got into my site and totally destroyed all the hard work I had done.

I had to delete the site.

This time acknowledging my mistakes and all the things I learned I knew it was time to start over.

That is when I decided to create this site.

I wanted to help beginners overcome the confusion and frustration of trying to start a blog online and help beginners avoid the mistakes I made.

Through blogging and email marketing, my site grew.

With the growth, I started to make money and was so excited!

Then it happened.

The big D.

Oh, no, no. Not Death but Divorce.

My divorce left me in turmoil.

Now, I was a single mom with 3 young boys to raise.

Even though my site was making money, it wasn’t enough for me to be a stay-at-home mom.

So I put this blog on the back burner and threw myself into raising my boys. (Oh, the stories I could tell).

While raising my boys, I used my “quiet time” to read and learn as Google and the internet is always changing so that “one day” I could revive this site.

Then it happened!

My “one day” finally arrived.

My children grew into adults and I was free to bring life back to this site.

And so here I am, with you, wanting to help make YOUR blogging journey successful and not make the same mistakes that I did.

I couldn’t be more excited to show you, help you, teach you and give you all the information you need to be a success online.

Don’t Get Me Wrong. This Blogging Journey Will Be HARD.

Building a successful blog is not something you will achieve overnight, even though many bloggers want you to believe that.

It takes dedication, commitment, patience, a sense of humor, and when you make mistakes (and you will), learn from them and move on.

Sure there are many hundreds of blogging tutorials online that talk about the tools to use but not the step-by-step of what NEEDS to be done.

This is like having a puzzle but you are missing some pieces.

So, I am here to show you ALL the pieces for you to be able to create a successful blog.

But I Am More Than Just Words On Your Screen…

I am the youngest (and only) daughter to my parents, chocoholic and love to read.

Reading has been a great love of mine since I was a child as I hid under my blankets with a flashlight so I could read….. Just. One. More. Chapter.

Yes, my hair is naturally curly, and have fought with it most of my life. I gave up the fight and learned to (some days) love it. And yes, strangers do come up to me in public and try to touch my hair and ask me if it is mine. (Um, not sure who’s else it would be)

And last, but not least, even though my boys are adults now, I still give them the “mom” lectures and yes, they do have their “eye rolls” down to a science. ( I still see them behind my back; my boys and the eye rolls. LOL)

Enough about me.

Let’s get you started on your blogging journey and….

I Am So Glad Your Here!
