I’ve talked before about the idea that your ideal blog reader might not be exactly the same as your ideal customer—and that you need to identify the differences if you can to make your blogging more effective.

This theory of the circles of belief takes that even deeper, showing quite convincingly that the people who only like you on Facebook or follow you on Twitter are not the people (most of the time) who are going to jump down and suddenly buy all your stuff.

So spending massive amounts of time creating content for social media when you need sales is… Well, not your brightest move.

What is? Check this blog post (and INFOGRAPHIC!) to find out.

When people talk about not being able to find their writing voice, I wonder if there's an evil sea witch around, stealing blog voices... Spoiler, there's not.

Your "shoulds" can be cured with your why. +Maggie Patterson tells you how.
 
Do you have a case of the blogging "shoulds"? As in blogging because your are supposed to? Following the rules blindly does not make for great content or connection with your readers.  New blog post on how to assess what you are doing for your blog and get super clear on your blogging why. http://bit.ly/Nx0DhW

Are you blogging from your true self (your values and beliefs) or is something holding you back? I assure you: your readers want to hear from the real you!

His TED talks is one of my favorites.  I think asking "why" is one of the best questions someone can ask.

Are you attracting the right readers to your blog?  (Hint: The right readers are the ones who convert into customers!)

If the answer is NO, you might need to do a little soul searching... This blog post could set you in the right direction.

Story
Tagline
Award-winning food writer, blogger, foodie, mommy.
Introduction
I’m a blogger, freelance writer, magazine editor, and aspiring novelist living in between Boulder and Denver, Colorado. I am also a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a Pisces, a foodie, a geek, a bibliophile, a flexitarian, a locavore, an urban homesteader, a DIYer, a gardener, a little bit type-A, an INFJ, a yogi, and many, many other things.

Locally, I am the food editor for Yellow Scene Magazine and the editor of its sister publication, Colorado Babies. I’m also a staff writer at Organic Authority and a freelance writer for many other publications

In 2011, I gave up my full-time job as a magazine editor to become a full-time mom and a part-time freelance writer.  It was exciting and terrifying and one of the best decisions I ever made.

But sometime after the birth of my daughter, I started to notice that a little green-eyed monster had started showing up.  Just every now and then.  Mostly, it reared its ugly little head when I heard about one of my foodie friends jetsetting off to Taos for a spontaneous weekend getaway. Or when I read a tweet about the amazing cocktail someone was enjoying at happy hour.

All while I was home, exhausted, with baby vomit on my shirt and a plate of cold spaghetti on the table, praying for five minutes of peace in which to feed myself.

I really missed living the foodie lifestyle I had come to love.

And that’s when I realized: there’s no reason I can’t be a foodie and a mommy.

My website, Laughing Lemon Pie is inspired by the idea that we can all find balance between those two—maybe not every single day, but over all.  I hope to start a conversation about what it means to be a foodie, what it means to eat organic, and what it means to have to cope with the challenges of feeding a family, too.

GREAT hummus, falafel, and baba ganoush! Loved everything we ordered. My only tiny quibble is that the salad is all just iceberg lettuce, but I can definitely get past that because everything else was so good! Friendly service. No-frills ambiance, but really terrific food. My whole family loved it. We will be back.

I love Rags for chic, on-trend, expensive brand-name clothes that are SO much cheaper because they are gently used. (Some are new with tags still on!) Plus, I have been able to make several hundred dollars over the course of a couple of years selling my own clothes here. Definitely a favorite.

Took the family to Zucca for dinner this weekend. Got there early enough to enjoy some happy hour specials—good deals on drinks and small plates. I had the zucchini polenta parmesan, which was fine, but a bit underwhelming; the flavors didn't really seem to meld, although they were all good on their own. Husband had the penne ala vodka rustica with sausage and it was excellent—our toddler couldn't get enough of it. Tartufo dessert is fun, and their ricotta cheesecake was unusual and delicious. Nice wine list.

Headed to The Kitchen Denver for Monday community night last night to celebrate my birthday—which happened to coincide with the first anniversary celebration for the restaurant. Excellent food and drink, very attentive staff, and such a fun atmosphere. A little noisy, so not the night to visit if you're looking for intimate conversation, but I thought the noise was part of the fun. Community seating and food is served family style for community night. Set menu. We had unlimited beer and wine on the table, but I'm not sure if that is always how they do it or if this was just for the anniversary occasion. I would definitely go back—especially for another fun community night dinner.

Took my good friend here for her birthday dinner. The daily specials are almost always the way to go here—super fresh, seasonal produce—but the lemon garlic shrimp orecchiette is a perennial favorite of mine on the regular menu. Our server was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the wine list and the menu. Wednesday nights are half-price bottles of wine. If you're watching your budget, they have a prix fixe dinner on Monday nights, and smaller, less expensive portions of their regular menu at lunch.
