8 Qualities of a Juicy Blog (my first video!)

Happy Monday, Have Fun, Do Gooders!

In honor of my new e-course, Juicy Blogging, that starts Wednesday, February 2nd, I'm posting a less than 5-minute video (my first!) about the 8 Qualities of a Juicy Blog:
  1. Visual
  2. Bite-sized
  3. Shares stories I can relate to
  4. Has an authentic and unique voice
  5. Solves my problems
  6. Makes me smile
  7. Written in the now
  8. Generous
We'll be discussing all of these qualities during the Juicy Blogging e-course, as well as tips for building community and time management.  Each week there will be three kinds of homework:

  • Reflection: Questions to refine your blog's purpose
  • Connection:  Assignments to build community and engagement
  • Creation: Juicy blog post prompts to get you writing

To join the course, go to  Thanks for watching my first video!

    1. Hi Britt, thank you for the tips,and I like your video alot, I think you are very animated too.
      I have started my own blog not long ago, and is slowly learning more about it, it is a green blog call
      but because I'm also doing it in a Bilingual setting
      (I also post it on Sina"Weibo" Chinese Twitter)
      just wondering if your course cover anything about, if the Dual Language content might affect my google listing or ad sense.
      again thanks for the tips...

    2. Britt,

      The 8 qualities really helped me to think about how I focus my blog, and some more ways to attract readers.

      Your first vlog was great & I look forward to seeing more of them!

    3. Hi Green News for a ReVampLife ~ No, I won't be covering bilingual blogs, although I think it's very cool that you're doing it. What a challenge, and a lot of work!

      Hi Cher ~ I'm glad you liked the video and found it helpful (:
