Please introduce yourself to the Successful Blogging team, Corinne.
My name is Corinne Kerston. I’m a full-time freelance writer. I have started a few blogs, only 2 are still up and I've written a few eBooks, but I've learned over the years that my first love is writing content for others.
Thanks! Now, let’s get personal! Where do you live? Do you have a family? What do you do for work and play?
I live in Hawaii with my wonderfully supportive husband and two kids.
For work, well, writing is my work.
It’s been wonderful. I get to do what I love, meet some amazing people online, and be there for my young children. For play, I don’t have much time for that! But now that my younger child has started going preschool in the morning, it gives me a few hours to myself. I’ve started walking with my best friend and getting into yoga.
Tell us about your blog, Corinne Kerston
My marketing blog resides on my writer website. I write about marketing tactics, blogging advice and customer relations. Basically ways to boost a small business.
My bi-weekly newsletter also adds value for my readers. I send blog updates, but I also share some of the biggest business and marketing news from around the web, and often add a link to a freebie that can help with business, an interesting piece of news or a product that I think is just awesome.
What have you been working on lately?
I recently published a Kindle eBook entitled “Blogging From Start to Profit: Everything You Need to Know to Make Money Blogging.” It can be found here.
It’s about blogging for profit, but starts at the very beginning. I take the reader through picking the right niche that will not only make them a profit, but will be something they want to write about for years to come.
From there we set up a blog with one purpose in mind: to make money. I go over content, traffic and of course, different ways to monetize.
I read it this weekend and it's a great read! What do you think are the smart habits effective bloggers should develop?
Keep on trucking. Reaching celebrity status or making enough to earn a living doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time and dedication.
Also, blogging regularly is important. It helps keep you on a schedule, but also lets your loyal readers know when to expect something new from you.
What bad habits do you think effective bloggers should ditch?
Thinking you’re not good enough. Or that your blog isn’t. Cause the truth is: it is.
While you may see imperfections and things you need to fix, others don’t. The best thing to do is just write and get content up there.
Where can people find out more about you? Is there anything else you’d like to share?
You can find out more about me on my writer website http://www.corinnekerston.com/
Like I said, I love to write and help businesses boost their traffic and sales using content. I’m even available for hire if any of your readers are looking for quality articles, blogs, website content or eBooks.
