If you are an online entrepreneur, you probably have a blog and you’re probably wondering how to make it a meaningful, profitable part of your business. Today on the show, we get to go behind the scenes of how Kate McKibbin, the founder of Secret Bloggers’ Business, got into the world of blogging and created amazing success with it. In fact, she grew her first blog, Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily, to over 500,000 readers a month, with multiple 6-figure revenue and 5 people on staff!

I’m so excited to share this interview with you because blogging can be such a powerful way to connect with your audience on a personal level. Gone are the days when people could have a nice, shiny website and just hide behind it. People want to connect and engage with the YOU, not just your business, and blogging can play a huge role in that.
