I’m about to reveal to you the secret sauce behind my blog…and a host of other blogs you may read that cause you to wonder, “how does she do it?” (Whether my blog actually causes you to marvel is probably debatable. But other blogs! I’m revealing their secret, too!!!)
The biggest blogging secret is this: I don’t do this alone.
This ain’t a one woman show. Oh no.
Although mine is the only picture in the side bar there, there is literally a team of people who help make this blog happen, and help keep me sane in the process.
And no, I don’t mean virtual assistants. That ain’t in the budget right now.
The team behind this blog is a group of women I’ve been intentionally doing community with online for nearly 2 years. They cheer for me, give inspiration and feedback, answer questions, give tips, and pray for me and my blog.
And I do the same for them.
They are my mastermind group.
The best tip I will ever give another blogger is, Don’t Blog Alone. And by that I mean, you should be in a mastermind group. But, since mastermind group invitations aren’t a common site in my inbox (or yours, I’d imagine) I’ve got something special for you today: a pile of advice on how to start one. Who to ask. Where to find the people to ask. What to do after you’ve asked them. And so on, and so forth.
(that’s me with just a few of the awesome ladies in one of my mastermind groups)
You can listen to the podcast and get the show notes here: How to Start and Run a Mastermind Group. I hope it encourages and inspires you. I hope you don’t mind how many times I say ‘uh’.
And if you want still more tips and an insider’s peek at how a mastermind group functions, check out the Mastermind Group Resources Page I made for you right here on my blog!
Because no blogger should blog alone.
Are you part of a mastermind group? Do you wish you were? Leave a comment and maybe you’ll find a fellow blogger or two to start one with right here in the comments!
P.S. do you listen to podcasts? I love them!!!
