I started blogging in July of 2009 using WordPress.com and Blogger. I spent months preparing myself to launch my first self-hosted WordPress blog. During that time, I learned the importance of building strong connections in the blogosphere through social media, guest posting and community involvement.
I want to share what I've learned with you and as I continue to acquire new skills grow my influence online, I will focus on providing content that will help you reach your goals.
Here are some of the reactions and notable mentions from across the internet:

She is a role model that with hard work, persistence and being a stand for other peoples success that what you want in life is absolutely achievable. She’s a complete joy and anyone who comes in contact with her is richer for it. Ileane, thank you for being an amazing person and entrepreneur and for your continued support.

Take a lesson from bloggers like Ileane Smith of BasicBlogTips.com and Brankica Underwood of Blog Like a Star. Both are very well-known in their spaces and will probably tell you they’ve built the majority of their following through social media.
They don’t just produce great content, but they generously share other people’s work and build relationships with their followers. Follow them. You’ll learn a lot.

Ileane is the girl to help you get started with blogging and social media. Heavily involved in the community, she is always there for her readers.

Ileane focuses her many talents, to help bloggers of all types, with SEO and social media. Even some of the more advanced webmasters can learn a thing or two from reading her blog posts–or by watching her many video tutorials on her blog and YouTube.
Basic Blog Tips breaks down the complicated lingo that can sometimes go with search engine optimization–into simple, easy to understand steps. Social media can be an intimidating aspect of online communications and collaborations. Luckily, BBT is there to help, and features social media tips and tutorials for you to understand. Also, the technology aspect of her blog–articles and tutorials that are also featured there–will help you navigate and incorporate your smart phone to go along with you in your blogging adventures.
You know who I want to be when I grow up? Ileane Smith. All help, all the time. Have rarely seen her post anything else. And while she covers a lot of territory, I've come to know her for having the skinny on a particular few. When she announced a new course on one of them, I already knew it would be worth paying for. All those tips gathered into an orderly course.
I think she has done an amazing job of training her audience.
@Ileane Anytime. When Ms. Ileane Speaks, I listen. 🙂

The thing I like best about Ileane is that her blog is so understated. Even the title’s understated. “Basic Blog Tips,” leaves you with the initial impression that this is going to be a simple blog with posts that just hits the high spots of blogging and traffic generation, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Ileane is actually one of the most accessible, approachable and highly respected bloggers on the internet. She's been doing this since 2009, so she’s experimented with just about every traffic generating methodology there is and distilled them down to the very best of the best. Her no frills take-you-by-the-hand approach is comforting to new or first time bloggers without being tedious to more experienced bloggers, and both will find plenty of value here. You can learn from the nuts and bolts mechanics of setting your blog up initially and getting it established to social media optimization. She’s even got a complete video tutorial series on YouTube if that’s more your speed and you can leave her a voicemail on her blog if you’d like to chat!
