Our Best Tips to be a Successful Blogger

Next month we will celebrate 4 years of blogging. 4 years! We really can’t remember our lives before this blog, but then again…we still feel like we just started this crazy journey!

Bridget_Casey_Headshot_rookies-3During these 4 amazing years, we’ve learned a lot about blogging. A heck of a lot. Before we began The DIY Playbook we were avid blog readers (still are actually!). Even though we read over a dozen blogs back then, we had absolutely no clue what actually went into running a successful blog.resources_for_bloggers

Today, we don’t necessarily feel like we’re experts on the topic…but we have learned SOOOO MUCH. And because we’ve learned a lot, we’ve found that it’s been beneficial sharing some of our tips with all of you. In fact, so many of you have specifically requested more posts about blogging!3-calendar-day-planner-computer-organized

So whether you’re a seasoned blogger, newbie blogger, or someone who may want to start a blog someday…we thought it might be helpful to compile all of those old (yet valuable!) posts into one spot.
