Do you dream of a successful blog? Let’s get together to make it happen.
There’s so much to know when you’re just getting started with your blog. And unless you have an unlimited amount of time to research, read, and stumble your way through the process of unfamiliar terms and tools–you can get tripped up pretty fast.
After all, you only want to write and share your thoughts with the world. Why do you need all this stuff anyway? What are child themes, plugins and .htaccess files? Are you ready to shout “I JUST NEED SOMEONE TO DO THIS FOR ME!”? I thought you might be.
That’s where I come in. I’ve been blogging since 2013 and have more than 10 years of experience with WordPress and websites. I understand the technical side and those extras like social media, SEO, theme design, and more to help the beginning blogger get started on the right foot with blog coaching that delivers based on where your blog is right now.
I’ve made my share of mistakes over the years and today I use that experience to steer you away from costly mistakes that could cost you subscribers, traffic and ultimately, money. When we work together, I’ll teach you the insights to help your site:
- Grow traffic steadily
- Gain email subscribers who love what you have to say
- Boost engagement with your readers
Let me help you tie the loose ends of blogging up in a pretty bow (a bow made up of hard work and commitment). With blog coaching, I’ll help you sort out the questions you can’t get past and make a plan for your future so you can stop comparing yourself to others and feel confident about what you are doing.
What my clients have to say
How it works
To help us get off on the right foot, I offer a free 15 minute discovery call to anyone who thinks they might like to blog or wants to see if coaching is right for them. If you want to chat with me, just shoot me an email and I’ll get right back to you.
During our time together, we can focus on any of the following or the needs we identify through the initial consultation:
Finding your niche and discovering who your readers really are
Digging deep to discover the best ways to deliver maximum value for your readers
Developing a power-packed lead magnet that drives subscriptions
Building subscriber gateways that actually get used
Creating drip campaigns your readers will love to open
Search Engine Optimization basics
Social media basics and strategy
Food (or general) photography classes
Who is blog coaching right for? What if I don’t want to write about food?
Coaching may be right for you if you are brand spanking new, have been blogging a few years and feel lost in the process, or if you’ve been at it a while and just need someone to bounce ideas off of. Feel free to contact me and set up a free 15 minute call if you’d like to talk things over further.
And no, you don’t need to be a food blogger to work with me. The techniques I use will work with all niches.
How much does coaching cost?
We can work together for an hour or you can come on board for weekly sessions (4 calls per month) if you’re feeling totally overwhelmed and need more help than an hour will cover. We’ll pack lots of information into each session so you can walk away with clear action steps and start working right away.
Coaching is $150 an hour or $350 for a month with four video calls and unlimited email access to me.
You’ll also get access to the experts I use and trust for design, website maintenance and much more should the need arise so you don’t have to worry about someone breaking your site and leaving you high and dry!

Recommended Service Providers
These are providers I use and trust to keep my blog running smoothly. I highly recommend their services.
Using a quality email program to gather email addresses from your readers the best way to connect with the people who love what you have to say and the most likely group to buy what you have and share your content. Convert Kit makes it easy to bring people to your list and keep them engaged with what you have to say.
For all of those times when you’re just stuck with technical issues, your theme needs some visual tweaks, or you don’t know what plugins to use, you need a master who can fix it. That’s why I go to Gretchen Louise. She’s just the girl to get you squared away.
Underneath the pretty paint of your theme you’ll need an engine that runs smoothly. StudioPress Themes for WordPressStudiopress offers the Genesis framework, which is what my site runs on. Light and efficient behind the
