Welcome to my new blog – Help for New Bloggers. I’ve been running my lifestyle blog – AdriansCrazyLife.com for more than a decade. But over the last few years, I found myself gravitating towards more tech-oriented posts and I’ve recently started my own business as a Pinterest VA (Virtual Assistant) and Consultant.
So I thought it made sense to split these more technical posts off onto their own site where I could focus specifically on providing advice for new bloggers on all the technical stuff that you need to learn as a new blogger. That’s how Help for New Bloggers was born.
As I said, I’ve been in the blogging world since 2007, so along the way, I’ve picked up lots of great tips related to blogging. After all the time and money I’ve invested in courses, Ebooks, blog conferences, seminars, and other learning opportunities, I wanted to have a way to pass all that I’ve learned.
A Bit About Me
A little bit about me – I’m definitely a type A overachiever with that traditional baby boomer work ethic, but I also have a free spirit side that is constantly coming up with new ideas and new projects. I always want to do ALL_THE_THINGS, but because of the workaholic side, I usually am able to actually DO a ridiculous amount of work. So, I guess I’m like an efficiency expert with pretty strong ADHD tendencies! Which is a good combination to have on your side.
I LOVE computers and tech stuff – that stereotype about older women being bad at computers is hilarious. I’m in my 60’s and I run my business with my 70+ year old sister, so ha! to that. I was a Financial Analyst for Wells Fargo and several other companies so I’ve spent the last 40 years doing spreadsheets and analysis work (yes – that’s FORTY freaking years!). And then I ran side businesses in my “spare time”. Until I was able to retire from Corporate life to do this Virtual Assistant (VA) work full-time – HIRE ME.
Why I Started Help for New Bloggers
I love to learn new things and then teach them to people – that’s my happy place. Not little kids – (Lordy, I don’t have that kind of stamina OR patience) but teaching new skills to other bloggers is MUCH more fun and occasionally profitable. That’s my true purpose in life – to help other people, typically other women to get a leg up and move forward in their lives and their businesses. I truly believe in the concept of Community over Competition. There are enough clients, opportunities, and money available to everyone, so it makes sense to HELP each other along the way instead of competing with each other.
So, I’m happy you’re here – you are welcome to just settle in and enjoy!
