I WROTE A BOOK!

www.probloggercareer.com

I WROTE A BOOK! Sorry all caps but I am so unbelievably excited it's not even funny. I have been waiting so long (3 years to be exact) to be able to say those words to you! 


I really couldn't wait any longer so I pulled the trigger today on a whim and announced it is released for pre-order with the official release date of November 1st! 

Holding my printed book in my hands is probably one of my greatest accomplishments to date and I'm trying to fully soak in this feeling but it's extremely overwhelming. 

I'll keep it short because my brain is in overload right now - here are the things you should know about the book!



What is the book about?
“The book will act as a resource for understanding the digital landscape of blogging as a form of creative advertising as well as an instructional manual which will act as a guide for any creatives wishing to enter the advertising industry through the blogging medium.”

How does it work?
The guide is split into three main sections, each reflecting a new stage in becoming a full-time blogger. The book will teach readers how to;
>CREATE A DURABLE BLOG
>BUILD AN ONLINE AUDIENCE
>GENERATE FINANCIAL SUCCESS


Where can I buy it?
You can purchase a printed copy or eBook version from ProBloggerCareer. If you purchase the printed book, you automatically receive the eBook as a bonus. It is currently on pre-order right now but all copies will be officially released on November 1st!

What the heck is PBC?
Pro Blogger Career (PBC) is the business I have set up to host the book, a Podcast I am about to release and it also works in conjunction with my consultancy agency JDC Marketing. I have big plans for this business and lots of good stuff is going to come out of it so keep an eye out. You can follow PBC on Twitter (@bloggercareer), Instagram (@ProBloggerCareer) and Facebook (@ProBloggerCareer). You can join the super exclusive FB community here

If you take just one thing from this post please have it be - THANK YOU! 
I could not have done this without you! I have been blogging now for a decade and whether you have just joined me on this journey or been here all along – thank you for all of your love and support over the years. This book is for you and I couldn’t have done it without you.

Books I've Read Lately #6 - 30 in 2018 Challenge

We are about the enter the last quarter of the year and are coming closer to the finish line of 30 books read in 2018! 


I feel like 30 has been the perfect number to aim for because it has put constant pressure on me to read but hasn’t been unbearable or an impossible time frame. There are also SO many incredible books out there, I wish I could just sit down and read non-stop over the space of a month.

 I got quite into Podcasts this month so relied on the physical books I was reading. I have some awesome ones to tell you about with my review, quotes from the books, major takeaways etc…so let’s get stuck into it.

Behind The Desk September - Work and More Work + Exciting Project Launching


Hey you! It’s me – I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing. I joke but…once you hear about all the stuff I’ve been doing over the past few weeks - you’ll get it. 


Let’s just say my last month has involved being piled in assignments…again…and I’m not even a Uni student anymore. It’s also been a lot of flipping between stressed out mess and bouncing off the walls excited about a project about to launch…

First of all! Holy crap… we are mid-way through September and next month are entering the last quarter of the year. Shortly I will be writing an article about ways you can make the most of the rest of the year and still smash those goals you set out in January – keep an eye out. It’s not too late to accomplish everything you set out to do in 2018! Gear up instead of slowing down for this last quarter to see massive results.

I’ve been in work mode pretty much all month, not stopping to do much else. Which is to be expected honestly since I have about 5 jobs; my full-time gig as marketing manager, teaching a Uni subject at QUT, freelance consulting, running this blog AND…working ridiculously hard on this special project about to launch. So I knew what I was getting myself into. But now you can laugh at how boring my life has been lately. Let’s get into it shall we…

Valentino Donna Perfume Review

 

I'm here to share with you a perfume favourite I have had for a while now. The Valentino scent - Donna.

I used to be obsessed with perfumes and had a large amount of them to brag about but over the years I have culled my collection with only a few go-to scents to choose from.

When I was walking through Myer I saw and reluctantly (because of the price) tried on the latest Valentino scent and immediately fell in love. I was obsessed with the perfect middle-ground between floral and fruity. It hits the right notes between sexy and sophisticated making it my absolute favourite scent of the moment.
