Creating A Nurse Wellness Blog That Serve & Sells!
Have you ever thought about starting a blog, but you got overwhelmed with not knowing WHERE to start?
Maybe the "start" isn't the overwhelming part, but more so you just don't really know exactly what you want to talk about?
Whether it's the actual task of starting or simply not knowing what to blog about, then you're going to wanna listen up buttercup!
You see, 7 years ago I was 23. I was FRESH out of nursing school and I was anxiously navigating my way through my profession. During that time, my sister (who is 6 years older than me) was sharing her health journey with the world through this thing called "a blog." I was so intrigued because she was always writing and sharing really amazing stories, recipes, and ideas with the world. I really didn't understand the point of blogging, but I thought what she shared was super cool!
One day I decided that I was going to look into launching a blog. One of the biggest struggles I had as a nurse was feeling alone. I felt like there wasn't a lot of support out there on the internet helping nurses navigate this crazy, wild, profession! I didn't have all of the answers to the questions that I was asking, but I did learn and grow through experience and I thought it would be really cool to share my heart and experience with the world through a blog and help other nurses going through similar emotions. That's how my VERY first blog, "Yourheartismine" was created!
I remember googling online, "how to start a blog." The first blog I started was a free blog! Yup. Completely free! Knowing what I know now about blogging, I would advise everyone who is actually wanting to grow something impactful and profitable to start with the type of blog I have today (this is what I teach you in my course)! When I realized how limited I was with what I could share on that free blog, I started to reach out for help from my local blogging community to learn how to transition to a better platform and learn how to utilize it.
This is where the magic happened! I got plugged into a local blogger group and I learned SO much from them! I started creating beautiful graphics for my blogs. I learned how to add fancy programs (that weren't hard, I promise) to make it more functional and prettier. I started blogging weekly on topics about nursing and things just started taking off! People were resonating with and sharing my blog! It was crazy! Blogging became a passionate side hobby and over time I got better at it and it started to grow!
Fast forward 7 years later, I run a Full-Time Blog and business called Whole Life Nurse and it has by far been the coolest thing that has happened in my life! I think the thing that people get confused about is that fact that there is no right or wrong way to blog.
Sure, there are ways you can make more money.
Sure, there are ways you can make it prettier.
Sure, there are plugins and programs that you can have set up to make it more functionable....
But at the end of the day, it's about sharing YOUR gifts, YOUR talents, and YOUR heart with the world!
You can't mess up sharing your heart, you JUST HAVE TO START!
So what are the different types of things you can do with a blog?
•you can share lifestyle blogs- anything and everything about who you are, what you do, and products that you love.
•you can share education blogs on a specific topic - maybe you're an expert (or a little better than a beginner) on a subject that you're passionate about and you'd love to share tips and tricks to help others!
•you can create a food blog and share recipes with the world if you are a pro in the kitchen and want to share your gifts and yumminess with everyone else!
•you can even simply use your blog as a landing page for your current business so people can come over to a professional space and see what types of services that you offer and learn more about you. I work with a ton of people in direct sales and coaches who've brought their businesses online and have a more professional space to educate and build credibility. I think EVERY business needs a blog!
Blogging gives you a creative outlet.
It gives you the opportunity to get your voice out to the world in a unique and intentional way!
It allows you to help others and provide value to their lives!
It gives you the opportunity to MAKE MONEY! YES CHILD! I talk very in depth about affiliate income in this course and how to start partnering with brands and companies to learn how you can grow an income sharing companies, products, and brands that you love!
It is truly amazing how in today's day and age that we have the opportunity to not only change the world by sharing our gifts and talents through a blog, but also that you can truly grow a side business/hustle over time and turn your wellness talents and dreams into profitable realities! You can literals START a very decent blog for around $100 and THAT is incredible!
I wanted to create this course for Nurse Wellness lovers like myself. I wanted to help other Nurses who may have been a little like me: over the conventional care and wanting a way to share their passions with the world and to help others in a way that aligned more with their beliefs about health and wellness because they simply couldn't at the bedside!
Blogging has truly allowed myself and so many others to get our voices out there and start helping people in ways that we believe in!
Never in a million years would I have believed you if you told me that my blog would transform into what it is today!
I'm STILL growing.
I'm STILL learning.
But I've come a long ways and I LOVE helping other like minded Nurses like you get started in the same direction!
