Jess is the founder and editor of The Golden Girl, a real-life, down to earth blog for the millennial woman trying to live her best life–from style tips to make you feel confident instead of self-conscious, to beauty tips to help you glow from the inside out, and real-life advice on–well, pretty much everything else. Above all, it's Jess' #1 goal to ensure her readers leave feeling inspired rather than inadequate.
Jess also has a "side hustle" with her blogger friend, Blair of The Fox and She, called Blogging4Keeps.com–where they post helpful content and online courses to help bloggers turn their hobbies into hustles.
I first heard of Jess through Jordan Bosstick, founder of Influencer SEO, who was my guest on Episode 25 where we talked SEO and Pinterest for influencers and bloggers. If you are interested in Pinterest, Jordan and I created free Pinterest checklist that you can grab at brittanykrystle.com/pinterest.
Jess added so much value that I decided to break her interview into TWO parts.
In Part 1, we cover everything from how Jess got into blogging, to how she narrowed her niche and her audience, to her content & distribution process, to how she uses SEO and Pinterest to drive traffic, to which content performs the best and more!
Next week, we'll hit topics like blog monetization, collaborations, affiliate marketing... the list goes on :).
