Enough of that. 

I want to walk you through the results of my 30-day challenge, and provide you, fellow BLOGGER, with a simple, minimalistic strategy for launching info products.

This is based off a blog post, found here: https://doyouevenblog.com/info-product-launch-checklist/

These blogging tips are taken from Darren Rowse, Rosemarie Groner, Paula Pant, David Bach, and the hundreds of other bloggers I met through the weekend.

Make sure to stick around for the end :) :)

A few weeks back, my wife shot me an email...

"This is the website I told you about. http://themomedit.com/. I would TOTALLY be starstruck if you got to interview Shana lol"

Well. My wife is starstruck :)

Today's interview is with the lovely Shana Draugelis, founder of The Mom Edit, THE top fashion for mom blog on the internet.

She's been blogging for almost a decade, and has grown The Mom Edit to an extremely substantial business. It's kinda amazing.

We chat...

  • Men's Fashion (for the frugal and lazy!) Seriously worth listening to.
  • The power of blogging
  • How and why blogging is a slow, non-glamorous grind
  • Content first. Everything else? "Good enough"

Aside from the first 10-12 minutes talking about Philly/fashion, Shana's blogging story will 110% inspire you. Great, great stuff!

(and aren't my interviewing skills getting better? I've been studying and practicing).
