Running a successful blog requires time management and organization, creativity, courage, and goal setting. This panel discussion will cover how to create, update, and grow a blog while balancing your work and family life.

We will discuss some basic blogging tips to include:

- Scheduling: How to schedule blog posts, social media updates, and even PINs
- Newsletters: Scheduling, how to grow your subscribership, and why they’re important
- Menu planning: The importance if you’re a food blogger, but also why it helps balance your sanity at dinner time – as well as your budget.
- Less is More: When to say no, not over commit, and why you should never apologize for a “blog break”
- Goals & Niche: How to set goals, make them happen, and stay within your niche to grow your readership.
- Sharing Safely: How to be mindful of the personal information you share about yourself and/or your children, in the interest of privacy and safety.
