When is The Last time You Level-Up'd?

Business Support, Lifestyle
by: Kel Amstutz

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.

I was not being the captain. 

I was just a passenger, looking into the ocean for a landing see where I would end up...what kind of opportunities might...or might not happen.

I wasextremely passive and taking an extremely passive approach.  In the end, I just floated around. I had high hopes of what I wanted my blog(s) to be...but trying to build them in order to build an income seems like it was a mirage.

Are You Spinning Your Wheels, And Not Happy?

Lifestyle, Struggle

In some areas of my life, I have had to grow up fast or learn quick. (learning was not my strong suite)

I always tried to help others, even when I just couldn't.  
I tried so hard to fix some in my life, or change them.

I had to think about:
my lifemy goalsmy wantsmy dreams

I grew into someone who started to think about the big picture when everyone around me was still just to day...without that same ambitions. 

So, what does this have to do with spinning wheels, you ask?

Spinning your wheels is like forcing something

Putting forth extreme and restless effort...but the outcome just is not right for you or the situation. 

One day things might break down. 
One day it migh…

44 Way to Get Massive Loads of Website Traffic and Readers

Lead Generation, Website Traffic
By: Kel Amstutz

I have truly been blessed with LOTS of website traffic. About four (4) months into my blogging adventure, I started to reach higher and higher volumes of readers, who have stayed with me throughout all my blog changes!

Not to sound overly-confident, but I know how to lovingly build an amazing community of blog readers. 

You see, when I started blogging, I did so with PASSION and HEART!

I honestly think that this is a key ingredient when you build a blog. 

Write about things that you TRULY care about.

If you start a blog just for money, YOU WILL LIKELY FAIL. (that is a FACT)

People can smell a faker from a mile away.

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

Every woman on this earth deserves a flexible, stay at home job, where she can focus on her family and provide for her family financially.

I am so very thankful for my blessings and I can not wait to share my tips with you so that you can put your own passion and heart i…
