Spotlight on Girl Blogger Next Door–Michelle Shaeffer

So January 6 was just “one of those days” when I didn’t get much accomplished–mostly because I was exhausted and not feeling well. The deep freeze has hit Maine and my “getting older” bones and joints don’t appreciate it!

You know it's cold when...
You know it’s cold when…

So backtracking to the writing prompt from the Ultimate Blog Challenge for the sixth day of January:

Day 6: Spotlight

We all have people in our life who we admire or who have helped us in our life.  Today pick one of those people and spotlight them in your blog post.  Who knows, they may be able to help someone else just by reading your story.

So it seemed only fitting to apply this  writing prompt to the area of blogging, and who better to spotlight than one of the co-founders of the original Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC),  Michelle Shaeffer. I have been enjoying learning about blogging from her own experiences and expertise shared through her blog and as I participate in various blog challenges, workshops, webinars, and Facebook groups that Michelle leads.

Here she is, Girl Blogger Next Door, Michelle Shaeffer….

And here is her bio from her blog:

Michelle Shaeffer’s entrepreneurial journey began early in life with experiments in sales from Girl Scout cookies and 4H fundraisers to creating websites for her parents’ friends. 

As an adult, free to serve others in ways that help them reach their goals faster and get better results with less stress, Michelle helps entrepreneurs and small business owners discover how simple it can be to get real results from their websites, transforming them from ghost towns into ideal client attracting, lead generating, authority building tools.

She’s written 42 blog posts in a single day… mentored more than 5,000 bloggers through the Ultimate Blog Challenge… published 900+ posts on her own blogs… made just about every blogging mistake possible (and shares them), so you don’t have to!

A typical day in Michelle’s life includes a whole lot of coffee, slightly non-traditional homeschooling lessons with her three children, obsessive blogging and content creation, coaching fabulous entrepreneurs through The Marketing Mentors Navigator program, working behind the scenes to support her awesome clients with their blogging and marketing, and sneaking a little bit of sci-fi in there somewhere.

Connect with Michelle for fun, smart training to help you make your online presence work the way you deserve so you can reach the crowd you’re meant to serve.

Michelle’s social media contact info:



Michelle is definitely someone I admire and she is more than qualified to help anyone who wants to learn more about blogging!


So how about you? Have you heard of Michelle or do you participate in the various blog challenges? Do you have a mentor or someone you admire? How does he or she help you with your particular ideas or goals?

    Happy to see a shout out for Michelle. I’ve participated in the UBC – many times. I read her blog on occasion. I know too well about those achy bones, living in upstate New York- stay warm (somehow).

    This winter cold is getting to my 28 years ‘young’ bones, so don’t feel bad. One really has to work hard to keep their chin up and stay motivated about life through this dreary season. This post helps with just that — motivation and inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

    I met Michelle through the UBC, but I have to admit that I don’t follow her blog all that often. She has great information, but I just don’t have the time to visit her blog as I would like.

    Maybe one day… She sounds like a person who loves serving people and that’s my kind of person! 🙂
