Schema Coping Modes

One of the main reasons I’ve been able to make so much progress over the past year has been due to schema therapy. It’s incredibly hard to explain, but I will be exploring a lot of the concepts through this blog as part of my research. I’m not sure that I believe in a lot […]

How I Kicked Arse in 2010

Over the past year I’ve written a number of “woe is me” posts. One example is How I screwed Up My Blog in 2009. I’m glad I did. Allowing me to get certain shit out there allowed me to push past my perceived limitations and create something awesome. The year has been all kinds of […]

Jade’s Jetlagged Recap of Blogworld

Back. In Australia. I swear – I’m NEVER going overseas again without stocking up on Australian food beforehand. I’ve been home for 24 hours and my mind is full of blogworld awesomeness. This post is going to be less of a ‘lessons learned’ and more of a ‘stuff I did’ post. This is for those […]

Networking to the Next Level: How I’m Going to BlogWorld.

Some of you guys know that two months ago, Dave (former client) asked me if I’d be his networking assistant. As you’d expect, I was all “oh noes I can’t do that.” Huzzah for excessive modesty. This has led to a lot of questions – some of which are answered in this post. How did […]

Both of us are very relieved and excited about what opportunity to pursue next. As usual, I’ve learned a lot in the process. I’ve decided […]

Behind The Scenes: 50 Netsetters Post

Late last week I wrote a post as part of The Netsetter relaunch called 50 Netsetters You Should Know About. This was a paid project for Envato but it was so much fun. For me, it was an experiment that I felt would pay off and it did. If this post, I just wanted to […]

Lessons from a failed launch

I may be *this* close to hyperventilating. I just checked our stats, and since its release we have sold 40 copies of the e-course. In total, $880 USD. I find this hilarious. We “launched” on May 8th and it flopped in just about every way possible. It hurt at the time but was so important […]

From the trenches: Newsletter edition

We’ve officially had the Blog Networking Tips newsletter for a month. It has been a huge learning curve but, surprisingly, it has also been really fun. We’e reached 72 subscribers with very little promotion. This is awesome for someone that doesn’t have an incentive or pop up. This post covers some of the little lessons […]

A Day in the Life of a Sneezer, Or, Why I spent 160 dollars thanks to a dog

Last night I was at the Social Media Club Melbourne event. (Side note – YAY for getting a shout out from the Problogger himself, even if it thoroughly embarrasses you.) After the panel ended, I *may* have been proudly showing off my new Haul bag to anyone who would listen. I then made the comment […]
