If you still haven't heard about The Influence Network, you simply must head over the website and check out all the amazing resources and encouragement for bloggers and handmade artists. What I've learned from being a part of the Network so far is that I can successfully blend both the "heart and life stuff" and the "strategy stuff" into the same blog. I don't have to pick one or the other. They're both equally important to the success of my personal brand.
We are a group of women who want to make our online life mean something.
We are intelligent, inspiring, intentional and influential women.
We are artists, mothers, entrepreneurs, missionaries, writers and so much more.
We are pursuing personal and spiritual growth with intention.
We feel called to speak truth and encouragement and inspiration on our online spaces, and not just add to the noise.
If you're looking for a place to find encouragement as you pursue a more meaningful purpose through blogging or a handmade business online, please come and join us at the Influence Network. You'll find forums and classes and resources and like-minded women in community. This network has been such an answered prayer for me. Join us!
And for all my fellow Influence Women reading today, here are 3 quick things about me:
1. I have been blogging since 2007 but it wasn't until 2011 that I felt God calling me to use my blog for something more.
This blog is my heart and my ministry and my art.
2. I live just outside of Philadelphia where we get to enjoy the beauty of all four seasons in all their glory.
I would love to hear where you're from, please leave a comment!
3. Music is a daily part of my life and an essential component of my blog writing. Music often helps inspire my words and helps me to express what's on my heart.
I love everything from Praise & Worship to Motown to Hip Hop.
