MixMaker Spotlight: Meet Vera!
What inspired you to do what you're doing now: I started my first blog in 2005 as something fun to do when I first became a stay-at-home mom. My hobby has since developed into a full-time career that I absolutely love and cherish. Not a day goes by that I am not thankful for the opportunity.
What's the best advice you've ever received? It's important to always try to learn something new every single day. In order to do this, you need to surround yourself with people who are filled with passion for their craft. I keep very small circles of very smart females and talk with them often throughout the day. It's a "give and take" and I don't believe you can grow in this field without it.
Is there a blogger that you admire? Oh my goodness. There are so many bloggers that I admire. Talent wise, I think Amy Fulcher from https://asthebunnyhops.com/ is the bee's knees.
What tool if any do you love to help you crush the blogging game? This year, my main focus is increasing my page views for my website. I have a specific number in mind that I want to hit by Christmas. So, I am leaning hard on both SEMRush and Tailwind. I actually think that both products are pretty critical for success when it comes to reach and I suggest writers out there look into both products if they haven't already.
