The Secret that Helped Me Increase my Blog Traffic

Hey friends!

Recently, several of you have been asking me about starting your own blog/improving the blog you currently have.  I couldn’t be more excited for each and every one of you out there!  As you can see, this blog has become part of my life and is a true creative outlet for me, but I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am today without the help of the fabulous Blog Genie.

I first learned of Rita (the Genie herself) when I was having some backend blog issues at the end of 2012.  I knew she had worked with other healthy living bloggers who only had wonderful things to say about her, and after having a couple of less than stellar experiences with other services trying to help my blog I decided to take the plunge and reach out to her.

Let me tell you friends…there is a REASON they call her the Blog Genie.

She was able to fix everything wrong with my blog and then some!  Boy was I thankful.  Not only that, but she responded to e-mails and questions in super-speed time.  She made me feel important, she explained things thoroughly so I learned as she fixed and she truly gained my trust and respect.

Shortly after she fixed up the old blog, I decided to enroll in the Blog Improvement Challenge.  This was a year long program, where each month focused on a different topic from organizing my schedule for increased productivity to marketing through social media.  She covered all her bases and she covered them well.

There were print-outs, worksheets, and homework assignments.  The best thing about it? Her program WORKED and truly increased my blog traffic.  In just 12 short months I have more than tripled the number of unique visitors who come to my blog each month, doubled the number of page views, and more than doubled all of the followers I have through my social media platforms (twitter, facebook, pinterest, and instagram).  And NO…I didn’t purchase a single “like” or “follow.”

I have also cultivated and deepened several relationships with other bloggers out there.  I truly feel like I am part of the healthy living blog community.  And while I feel like I have learned so much, I also feel like I am still learning and using the tools that Rita gave me to continue to strive to be the best healthy living blogger I can be.

So, you are probably wondering WHY I am sharing all of this with you…
