So, once upon a time... I started this blog, you know the one...Life at Gray Gables back in 2011. 
Sure, I was full of content but I wasn't really clear on 
what I wanted to dowho my audience waswhat my brand could beor even what mission I was on
It was, in my own words, my Hobby blog. 

It was not a business.

It was something that I dedicated my heart and soul to, put my passion into, but I was putting my words on the computer screen, not really thinking about building anything...BIGGER than that.

I was not navigating my ship.

People can smell a faker from a mile away.


For me, I revealed myself and what I believed in; which is this:

Last year, I posted a blog post that went viral. (much to MY surprise!) 


Today, I still see traffic in the thousands (on a daily basis) and from that one article! 

Since then, I have had a few more blog posts that are getting shared in the thousands.  The internet is filled with different niches that cater to different interests.  In today's internet landscape, it is a MUST as a blogger, that you formulate a strategy that CAN make your posts go VIRAL.
