I follow a “blogging” Google Alert daily.
One email alert finds its way into my Gmail inbox.
90% of the time – or more – any blogging story reported through major media news outlets focuses on hefty income claims or huge social media following numbers.
Former stay at home mom makes 6 figures.
Former cop makes $1,000,000 a year.
Instagram model nets 3,000,000 followers.
I admire these folks. More power to them.
But I also know the danger in reporting these types of news stories with a heavy emphasis on astounding results.

If you ever want to find Jenn Herman online, remember to spell her name with two N’s.
Growing up in the 1980’s with no shortage for the name Jennifer, Jenn became Jenn with two N’s which has better distinguished her from all the other Jen’s out there.
So keep that in mind.
Jenn started her blogging journey in 2013 with her first blog solely as a hobby and being on a free WordPress platform Jenn quickly realized that a free blog is not always the best option. She soon changed over from Jenn’s Trends WordPress Dot Com to her own URL which she called – Jenn’s Trends Dot Com.
Always having teaching and training skills, Jenn set out to break down the fears and misconceptions that first-time bloggers encounter when wanting to start a blog for the first time. Jenn targeted a senior management group and applied her skill to help them gain more confidence in blogging and social media marketing.
Jenn is a top-tier blogger and an expert on Instagram and social media marketing. On this episode of The Blog Chronicles, we will see how to understand Instagram as a community building tool and how versatile Instagram can be if you use it in the proper manner. Continue reading…

Most bloggers don’t tolerate lame guest posting pitches.
Some bloggers pour salt in your pitching wounds, laying into you with a snarky or outright angry email to put you in your pitching place.
Over the years I have cultivated my “Pitch Compassion”.
I rarely get annoyed or even agitated when a blogger pitches me to land a guest post on Blogging From Paradise.
Usually I note how guest posting is permanently closed on BFP but sometimes when pressed for time I ignore the email.
The majority of bloggers either junk such emails or at best, ignore the pitches entirely.
If your guest post pitches seem to fall on deaf ears you need to change your strategy.
Something is off.
Something is wrong. Continue reading…
