Blogging Goals and Storytelling


This post is one-stop in the month-long Blogger Babes blog tour which began here. To read this post in-context, we recommend starting at the beginning--then hop along with us for the full journey.


I've known Beth for many years now, and some of my fondest memories blogging are because of her and/or her role as the owner of Role Mommy. And yet she's another virtual friend who I have yet to meet in person.


While I attended many exclusive live events and gained from online opportunities, Beth and I connected more deeply because we both have PR (public relations) background and we're writers (authors) at heart. Beth was actually instrumental in my getting featured on Fox News during the first months transitioning out of business blogging and into mom blogging.


Anyway, it's these kinds of relationships that I built through blogging that has made me who I am and solidifies who Beth is to me. Beth and I knew each other while I was a woman entrepreneur and self-help blogger, then a mom blogger, and now a "blogging" business blogger.


We've maintained our relationship through the years and continue to help each other out whenever the opportunity comes up. The thing about Beth is that she's always been a "role mommy" to me, raising her family and work by going "beyond" the typical acts of PR. So her company names--Role Mommy and Beyond PR-- have always stuck with me. Now, that's branding!


Blogging is All About Storytelling


It's funny. In searching her archives for her last "blogging" post, I found her Blog Resolutions in 2013 and smirked at her modesty. To think that her #1 resolution was to "Be committed to Storytelling"! To me, Beth has always told stories. But this kind of resolution shows to her readers (and me) the importance she places on wanting to improve herself and her craft in blogging.


This art of storytelling is exactly what Heidi and I teach in our debut Blogger Monthly Tutorials. We delve deeply in finding Your Voice, Your Blog, Your Brand...and achieving this by telling stories. We offer brainstorming worksheets to explore what it is you really want or should be blogging about.


So while Beth has put a stake in her voice and brands, it's possible to do it my way, too. Whether you're sticking with you one blog for a lifetime (like Beth), or change niches every 4-6 years (like me) the key is about telling YOUR story. This blog tour is me just telling one continuous story across various blogs.

Need some help learning how to tell stories while blogging?

  • I've always been a storyteller and I keep working on having my voice show through in all of my posts.

  • Honing in our your unique voice is the #1 way to establish yourself as an authority blogger, so that's great! Keep it up!

  • As a special needs blogger the storytelling comes naturally but unfortunately I tend to procrastinate about it. Thanks for being a host on the tour!

  • Yes, the writing part (storytelling) is very easy for me too, but I despise formating and publishing, that's why I delegate. But, if you're a one-woman show the best thing to do is "chunk" and batch your tasks to get it done.

    It's amazing how often people overlook the importance of storytelling. As a blogger, I really don't think there's anything more important. Anyone can pick up a textbook and read a chapter about any particular topic. But who wants to do THAT??!? Especially when you can learn from people who've actually had first-hand experience with that topic. I personally think it's a lot more fun, and I fiind that you learn a whole lot more from someone who's relatable than you would from a boring, zero-personality book. Love what you guys are doing here!
