Making Your Blog Work for You

Whether you’re new to blogging, have been at it for a while, or have worked at it for years, it’s important to evaluate why you’re blogging. It’s likely that the reasons that motivated you to start are different from the reasons that you’re still working.

  • What are the personal, financial and creative pay offs?
  • With whom have you connected as a result of blogging?
  • What have you created that you would not otherwise have created?
  • What have been your most meaningful blogging projects? 

As long your blog continues to benefit you in some way, keep blogging. If you need to make adjustments to your schedule, workflow, or creative output, go ahead and adjust. Make blogging work for you by staying aware of what needs to happen so that it continues to work for you.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
