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 have several guest posts on Blog Engage and the CommentLuv blog.

I want to share what I’ve learned with you and as I continue to acquire new skills and strategies 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:
