In April of this year Crystal & Co., will be five years old! It is so hard to believe the time, knowledge and dedication that have gone into this site.
After about 18 months of blogging I wanted help- someone that could show me the ropes and point me in the right direction. You reach a point where you feel like you’re spinning your wheels. I asked questions of many “big” bloggers and in return I got crickets. No response to even simple questions. All blogging tips were top secret.
Then I met Kelli from 3 Boys and a Dog and she answered a few of my burning questions. She told me things to do in order to grow and I went off and did them. And then I came back. She would give me another task with more tips and assignments. I was a little worker bee.
Kelli and I have been a blogging team for a while now. We bounce ideas off each other, challenge one another, we set goals and achieve them. Over time we have taken our blogs to another level. Both of us have had posts go viral multiple times and I have shared tips about how I am getting traffic to my site with 140,000 pageviews a month. We are a tribe.
We are not keeping our tips a secret. We are spending Tuesday’s over on Google+ doing a hangout at 10:00 am central time each week sharing our pointers. Last week we gave Twitter advice . This week we are teaching you how to grow your blog with Pinterest. Everything you need to know is in the following video. It is all the stuff that has worked for us. (Next week we focus on Facebook. )
