What is The Authentic Blog Project?
It’s part memoir/ part “how to” book about blogging for profit while being authentic. You know, not super fake on social media.
Authentic blogging is a revolution that offers freedom. It’s about breaking from the algorithms, SEO, and “what you should do.” It allows you to be yourself and spread your message when and how you want.
When I embarked on The Authentic Blog Project I found that I had more time to blog authentically because I was spending less time inflating my traffic and social media impact. Turns out my audience and advertisers love authenticity. My sponsored post rate increased and my blog income stayed the same all while I’m working less and creating content that I truly love.
Why bother blogging authentically?
If you’ve been around this space for long, then you know that I’ve had a hell of a year. I wrote The Authentic Blog Project over a year ago. I was getting ready to publish it when my mom got diagnosed with cancer and moved in with us.
In the last year I’ve experienced life as a caretaker, a grieving daughter, and a guardian to my 15 year old brother. Through all of this, I had very little mental space to give to the world of social media and the internet.
Yet, my business hasn’t collapsed. Oh, it’s suffered, but it is still there. By speaking my truths and being honest with my audience, I’ve been able to keep a relatively high sponsored post rate. Which definitely helps now that we legally have four kids in the family!

What is the Genius Bloggers Toolkit?
Every year, the wonderful women at Ultimate Bundles put together the best blogging tools for the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit.
This year it consists of 26 eBooks, 7 Printables & Workbooks, 55 eCourses & Videos, 5 Stock Photo Packs & Templates, and 1 Membership Site for a total of 94 products worth $7395.27
Bundled together, the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit only costs $97.
My book alone costs $24.99. For an extra $72.01 you can get another 93 products. Crazy, right?
Honestly, you don’t.
But how do you know if any blogging resource is for you?
My personal opinion is that if you are serious about making money blogging, then purchasing the toolkit is a great way to get started. It’s a pretty small investment with a ton of great resources.
Is it for everyone?
Not at all!
In fact, I even got myself into a bit of trouble with the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit.
In my book I warn my readers to be wary of bloggers who are selling stuff like this through their email lists.
Because some bloggers will sell anything and everything just to earn an extra buck.
Yet, here I am promoting it! But, I’m a little biased this time because my very own e-book is featured in it.
