So you’re ready to launch that blog. Fabulous.
Blogging is work – consistently. While it’s fairly easy to launch a website or blog, the engine of content creation needs to be well-oiled. But there are systems as well as efficient planning and project management tools to help you chronicle your content. Online writing is a fabulous journey and a helpful avenue to share your message, build your business and reach your readers/customers/clients.
Starting a blog is one thing, and maintaining it is another – but don’t be overwhelmed. On this page, we’ll walk through through key steps, doable tips and resources to help you with writing, listing/selecting ideas, batching content, scheduling, publishing, promoting plus top tech tools so you can manage your online writing journey well, without feeling overwhelmed.
If you’re wondering if the blogging market is already saturated, think again. Though there are billions of blogs, there is only one you. Whether your blog is the ongoing voice for your business or the online location for your journal or recipe book, it’s key to building an authentic, continuous relationship with your customers, clients or readers.
Think about the most frequently asked questions you get. Wouldn’t it be a lot easier to direct people to a post instead of repeating the same info and have the same conversation over and over again? This is one of the countless benefits to having a blog/website.
Coming up are some blog posts to walk you through your online writing/business journey. Prefer to book an online V.I.P Day with me to navigate you through the launch and manage process in real-time? (Scroll past the posts to find out how.)

When I started my #blog in March 2013, there were no whoops or rounds of applause (more like yawns and crickets.)
At first, I was writing fervently to an audience of 1. Today, itsjoywithin.com reaches readers in 80 destinations.
Maybe you’re called to launch an idea – start a business, write a book, pitch a project but you keep stalling; listening for external encouragement, comparing yourself with a million other people in ‘your field,’ or waiting to see a chin-nudge forward.
Listen, you plant that seed, water it, keep showing up, watch it grow, remember the purpose in it, and give thanks every step of the way. You might be surprised at how many other people you can help navigate the process when you’ve gone through it yourself.
I had met Indra in the past and though we didn’t get to talk much, I was always stunned by her talent and presence. God linked us again recently and Indra helped me by giving me confidence in myself as a person and in my potential work as a new blogger. Her kindness, poise and professionalism gave me the fuel I needed to kickstart my mind into a new way of thinking. I am now more productive than I could have been without her erasing my doubts. I am taking baby steps but steps nonetheless! I definitely recommend Indra for any entrepreneur, young or old who is looking to expand their way of thinking and broaden their field of authentic work. If you are looking for someone to boost you while giving you great advice, this is who you want to talk to! – LoveTimeTravels
