Professional Organizer & Blog Assistant

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog! I am so excited to start my Virtual Assistant business.  I have been organizing and setting up my business for several months and it is ready to launch.  Be sure to check back often for posts about organizing, blogging, self-care, and tons of other interesting topics.  There is going to be a lot of joy in this journey!

How to start a blog

Are you intrigued by blogging, but don't know where to start with creating your first blog?  Here are some tips to get you started.  

  • YouTube is a wealth of information for bloggers.  Check out some videos to see if blogging is right for you.
  • Wordpress? Squarespace? They are both good, but I prefer Vistaprint.  I pay $18.00 per month for my website and have the option to have this blog page.  The themes are fully customizable and I feel that I have more control over my designs.
  • Decide on your niche.  Do you want to blog about beauty, lifestyle, crafts, tech, cooking,  or healthy living?  Be sure to put your ideas into a notebook.  
  • Make a list of your first 10 blog topics and start researching.  Keep your drafts in a Word document until you are ready to publish.

IS YOUR BLOG TYPO-FREE?

Don't hit publish until you have spell-checked your posts!  You spend a lot of time on your blog posts so make sure they are typo-free when you publish them.  Perfect spelling is crucial for a professional-looking blog and website.  Keep a checklist near your computer or put a reminder on your calendar to stay on the right track.
