I have had a few busy days with other obligations, so I’m trying to catch up now with the NaBloPoMo writing prompts. The writing prompt for Thursday, 3/14, was this:
Who out there in the world would be the best mentor for your ideas and goals?
If I apply this question to the area of blogging, and if I were to choose a mentor for blogging, I know for sure that I would choose Michelle Shaeffer. Actually, I am already receiving the benefits of her blogging experience and expertise, although not on a one-on-one basis… not yet, anyway! I participate in various blog challenges, workshops, webinars, and Facebook groups that Michelle leads.
Here she is, the “Marvelous Mentor Michelle Shaeffer” ….
And here is her bio from her blog:
I help entrepreneurs get their message out through blogging, social media, websites & online marketing. And I believe that building your business online can be fun and exciting, and it shouldn’t mean teetering on the edge of insanity.
What makes me different from many other coaches and trainers is that I’ve got 20+ years of experience in designing hundreds of websites and blogs, plus I’ve spent more than a decade working behind the scenes for brilliant marketers (you’d know their names if I shared them), learning how big success in online entrepreneurial businesses really gets created.
And I’ve built my own business through blogging. My award-winning blog at michelleshaeffer.com attracts between 250,000-325,000 page views a month (measured by CloudFlare). I once wrote 42 blog posts in a single day, and I’ve mentored more than 5,000 bloggers through leading online blog challenges for the past year several years.
**I don’t just talk about blogging and tell you that you should do it because it works. I’m doing it — and I’m getting results. ** Through the blog challenges and other projects I’m “in the trenches” and working with themes, plugins, templates, and all that other blogging “stuff” daily.
Yeah, I’d say she’s qualified! How about you? Do you have a mentor? How does he or she help you with your particular ideas or goals?
