Why You Should Do a Blog Consultation (The Basics)
I just had my first-ever blog consultation (last night, since you'll be reading this on Thursday). I was all bits of nervous and excited - nervous to be part of a video hangout for the first time ever with someone I've never even met, and excited about getting to talk about blog things for a full hour with a fellow blogger.
If you have ever thought about purchasing a blog consultation do. it. now. Seriously right now. Like, don't wait any longer. It's totally worth the money or nerves that might be holding you back.
It can be a little scary to think about being a part of a video chat with someone who you've never met in real life but whom you feel like you stalk on the internet multiple times a week. If you're like me you think it'll be awkward, uncomfortable, or you'll run out of things to say. And let me tell you, you don't. Which brings me to my next point...
Someone Who Understands
You get a full hour of talking with somebody who understands about something that the two of you could probably spend days talking about: all things blog. When you talk about SEO you don't have to explain what it is. When you talk about pageviews you don't have to explain how you track them. When you talk about photos and Pinterest you don't have to explain why these two things go together. My poor husband tries so hard to follow along sometimes and ask questions to show that he cares, but he just doesn't get it like a fellow blogger does. Talking about all of these blog-related things for over 60 minutes was awwweeesoooome.
This one you already know because this is why you would pay for a consult in the first place, right? You want tips, tricks, things that work, things that don't work, yada yada yada. Hayley and I could never have e-mailed back and forth enough for me to leave with as many tips as I did from our consultation.
When you finish your consult you will want to write blog posts, work on your social media posts, and go back and edit properties of your old posts for hours! I promise you that you will. Because talking about blog things for an hour with someone who gets it will make you feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and motivated to conquer the (blog) world!
Who knows who you'll connect with or love chatting with. But if you're lucky enough to feel like I did at the end of my consult, you will feel like you really just made a new friend. And that's part of why we even do this whole blogging thing, isn't it?
There are only good memories when I look back on that one hour of all things blog.
