Launch :: Have a Blog? Wanna Write an E-book? This One's For You!

Today I have two new things to share with you, and of course some free swag.

So, let's get down to business (to defeat the huns).

If you're reading this, then you might be a:
  • Writer with a blog
  • Blogger with a biz
  • Friend or family member (HI, MOM!)

And if you're one of those first two things, then you might just be a one-woman show (with maaaybe an assistant or intern or photographer or graphic designer). But what I'm trying to say is, you probably do a lot, and you could probably use some help -- whether or not you'd like to admit it.

That's where I come in.

As you may or may not be aware, I'm been blogging pretty much since the internet was invented (AKA 2002), and a few months ago I started a life coaching business. How do these two things connect?

Well, what you may not know is that I'm also a blog + business coach. I help creative people like you come up with a plan to make your brands better and your biz dreams come true.

I'm thrilled to introduce these two new offerings today because I know that they'll come in handy on your journey to blogging, loving, and living loudly. The first is my BLOG ANALYSIS and the second is E-BOOK EDIT. They're pretty straightforward, but here's more info for the Type A's (I see you, girl):


I don't know about you, but I'm constantly emailing my blogging besties asking questions about the look and content of my blog. It's always nice to get an outsider's perspective and I love having those ladies to rely on. However, I know that they don't have the time to do a full analysis of all my blog's components, and I wouldn't expect them to. If you're in the same boat, you might want to keep reading.

The blog analysis is for you if you're:
  • Getting serious about your blog/biz and how it may be perceived by your readers/clients
  • Looking for an honest, in-depth opinion about your internet presence
  • Wanting a short-but-sweet relationship with a partner-in-blogging-crime

This process is completed exclusively through email and the schedule goes a little something like this:
  • Day One: You grab your spot in my shop
  • Day Two: I get back to you with a list of questions about your site
  • Day Three: I read your answers and analyze your blog based on a specific series of criteria
  • Day Four: You apply changes to your blog based on my suggestions
  • Day Five: I check out your sexy, refurbished online home and follow up

Here are a few of the categories we'll cover:
  • Blog design, layout + organization
  • Post content (readability, consistency, etc)
  • Social media presence (network handles, photos, statuses)
  • Comments section (look + ease for the reader, your responses)
  • Monetization (proper usage of ads, affiliate links, services)

And right now, all of that is only $45 (it'll go up to $129 in June). Pretty sweet deal, no?


When I wrote my first e-book, I did it with zero help. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I had an idea and, in true Loudmouth fashion, decided to go for it. No one looked at it (not even a peek) before I hit PUBLISH. And, it still turned out okay (phew!) but it could've been even better with a little assistance.

The e-book edit is for you if you're:
  • On the brink of releasing a book, but want one last editing sesh
  • Looking for an experienced writer to work out the kinks
  • Adding the final touches to what you've already written

It's NOT for you if you're:
  • Just getting started on your e-book or haven't written it yet
  • Writing something longer than 28 pages (this one's for my own sanity)
  • Not open and comfortable with kind but constructive criticism

This process is completed exclusively through email and the schedule goes a little something like this:
  • Day One: You grab your spot in my shop
  • Day Two: I get back to you with a list of questions about your book
  • Day Three: I read your book and make necessary changes/suggestions
  • Day Four: You respond
  • Day Five: I respond
  • Day Six: We do a virtual hug and celebrate!

Right now, it's only $95 (it'll go up to $187 in June). Pretty sweet deal, no?

Whoa. Déjà vu.


I also wanted to let you guys know about a special deal on my two e-books:
  • 7 Steps to Living Loudly (7 chapters, 25 pages)
  • Loud Ladies: An 8-Day Guide to Loving Yourself + Living to the Fullest (10 lessons, 12 pages)

That last one is what all my Spring Break babes got during the course, but now you can have it too. Just FYI. You're welcome. Oh, and if you don't do your homework I'm telling the principal on you.

This e-book bundle is for you if you're a:
  • Person who reads
  • Woman, or someone who doesn't mind being called a lady
  • Lover of sales + saving money on cool shit

These books are normally $20 and $9, respectively, but right now you can grab them together for $22. If you're bad at math like me, that's a savings of $7 (I counted on my hands).
