This episode is a bit different. I have two guests today, both of whom are new-ish bloggers who have done incredible work and seen amazing results in their first 3 months of blogging.

It's my pleasure to bring you a casual conversation with Lily from The Frugal Gene and Ms. FAF from Frugal Asian Finance.

Lily -> 9k views/month in 3 months, 2-3 podcast bookings, 1k+ Twitter followers....and she also brings in roughly $7k/month just from her AirBnB rental(!)

Ms FAF -> 17k views/month in 4 months, incredible engagement on every single post, and she has incredibly helpful monthly blog reports.

We chat about

  • How these 2 ladies have helped each other grow their blog traffic and engagement.
  • The supreme importance of real-world blogging relationships
  • How bloggers over-emphasize traffic and analytics
  • Is having paid software really going to make a dent in accomplishing your goals?
  • Gender/ race opportunities and limitations in blogging (why isn't anyone talking about this?)

Eden (@edenfrieden, http://edenfried.com) is a pro blogger who has steamrolled herself to blogging success in an incredibly short time.

She was almost a full-time law school student before she quit everything to blog…full-time.

In this episode, we dig into:

What it took to DO that,
How she struggled for 6 straight months,
How she overcame it and grew a HUGE following on Facebook and Pinterest
How she monetizes consistently, even before she had thousands of followers.

This is by far my favorite episode so far, and I KNOW you're going to get some wisdom from Eden. Enjoy!
