I was recently given the opportunity to review a workbook designed to help bloggers retain more views. This workbook was written by Stephanie Shar of the Loudmouth Lifestyle Blog. Want to win a copy? See below!

30 Day Guide to Bolder Blogging by Stephanie Shar_ Zainey Laney

Stephanie not only does workbooks, but also e-courses designed to help your blog or business. I was interested in this because while I have a pretty nice youtube following, my blog (at least on this site) is still fairly new. Mostly research is one of those things I am doing constantly to stay ahead of the game and find new techniques.

What I liked about this workbook, is that it breaks things down into very easy steps by day. It starts from the simplest tasks (such as page content) and moves to how to maintain you blog and make a community, not just money.

Every workbook I have seen on this has a different take, and this one is no different. I just really like how honest and simple she puts this information, and how easy it is to follow. Also her emphasis is on reaching people, not just how to make money without connections.

If you are interested in purchasing this workbook, you can HERE for $9. HOWEVER, if you want to get one for free, simply comment below with your blog (or business) link and say why you need help! You can enter until Nov 8!

Hello Zainey Friends!

Due to the fact that I am starting a new job in a week and my schedule is being twisted all around, I am finding it hard to get into my writing groove. Please bear with me for a few weeks while I get it all together. I probably won’t stop posting altogether but it just might be a little sparser.

In the meantime, feel free to visit me on Instagram where I post everyday and Youtube, where I still post a few times a week!

Until next time,

When you are part of social media, blogging, or a youtuber, it is very important to be a part of a community and to be sharing content besides your own. In the Geeks & Beauties Google Community that I run, we try very hard to support and encourage each other’s endeavors. One of the ways I personally do this is starting to highlight people people on my blog and youtube channel. Here is part 3 of 3 people who will be featured on my site during the month of September. Starting in October, this will happen weekly.

If you are interested in being featured on my blog or social media, make sure you join Geeks and Beauties and send me a message! (Or visit any of my social media above!)

Our third person for the month of September is Sasha. Here is a little bit about herself:

 

ProfileAboutMePhotograph

Hi there! My name is Sasha but most people know me as “fizzyfreeze” from YouTube! I created my channel in the hopes of obtaining not only lasting relationships and great networking possibilities but also to help in showing others that there is more to bath and body products than the standard brand name shops that people reach for in their “go to” bath items. I love experimenting with indie and Etsy bath and body product companies to see what else is out there to help crave my love for bath and body products and have found so many great shops through my continued journey. I saw that there seemed to be a lack in videos displaying all of these great shops and wanted to create my own channel in promoting those shops while discussing about a category that I’ve loved since I’ve been a child.
As I continue my path through the YouTube Community, I’ve found myself taking risks and branching out to other categories that I never would have thought my channel would go. I’ve made great friends, great relationships (both friends and companies) and have also found myself more independent and confident in branching my channel into other opportunities as well. Who would have thought a silly little “New Years Resolution” to step out of my comfort zone would bring me to where I am now? I absolutely love creating content for my channel and cannot wait to see what new possibilities and relationships await me around the corner.

During my journey through YouTube, I have created amazing friendships which have branched into communicating outside of the standard laptop and/or desktop screen. A great example of this is in my most recent video post where I unbox a package that my really awesome friend, Dale, had sent me in a box swap I joined for the Geeks & Beauties Google+ Community group. Within this group, we have many collaborations and swaps set up allowing everyone to become involved in building lasting relationships with each other. I absolutely loved all of the items that Dale had sent me within our swap with each other and cannot wait to see what is in store next for our collaborations & swaps within the group!

Our first featured person is Lyn. Here is a little bit about herself:

 

Hi!  My name is Lyn and I am a proud wife and Mom to two boys.  I love reading and books are a huge passion for me. I also love talking about beauty and trying diy crafts with my family.  I have only been blogging a short time but am amazed at the feeling of connection and community.  I feel like it has given me a whole new social circle, and I am learning so much. 
I am a huge nerd.  My husband and I bonded over our love of video games. Firefly and Star Wars.  If it’s sci-fi, I will probably enjoy it!
About my work:
I enjoy reviewing products both on my blog and on Amazon for review groups.  I have also been extremely lucky and had the opportunity to do several book reviews.  I am finding a new love for urban fantasy and discovering some great new science fiction authors!  I love learning about products and services that will enhance life for my family and myself, and am happy to talk about anything and everything I find innovative and helpful.  I would love to connect with other Moms, bloggers, geeks and really anyone out there!
For a sample of Lyn’s BLOG, where she attempts to make ICE CHALK from a Pinterest post.
One of Lyn’s videos will be featured on the sidebar on the right for the month of September. Here is a youtube video to get you started!

Our first featured person is Dale. Here is a little bit about herself:

 

Dale of "Beauty from the Empty Nest" featured as a September #ZaineyFriend _ Zainey Laney

I am a wife and mother (my son is just starting his second year of college and my daughter is a sophomore in high school) who adores beauty, makeup, and positive ways of living life.  My passion for makeup is not new but is just now being allowed to voice itself on my YouTube channel (BeautyintheEmptyNest) and blog (http://BeautyintheEmptyNest.com).  I am enjoying this new adventure that was driven by a void I observed in the social media driven beauty world – very few of our beauty gurus were women of a mature age.  This is important because what worked for me in my early 20’s and then 30’s and then 40’s does not always work for me now.  My goal is to start these conversations and have fun in the process of doing so!  

We will be featuring a different video of Dale’s each week, which you can view on the right sidebar. Here is the first one to get you started!

Feel free to contact Dale or check out her social media linked below! Show her some love, she has some great content. 🙂
