Today is the final installment of the Blogging Resource series. If you missed any of the previous post, you can check them out here.
This week I am featuring Ask Jess, a weekly email/video column about blogging. Jess Keys is the creator of The Golden Girl Blog and Fashion Editor of The Everygirl. Ask Jess is a column for new and seasoned bloggers looking to brush up on their skills. Subscribers can submit questions to Jess, and each week she answers one in her video. Jess reads all of her comments, and often will respond and provide feedback. She is very personable and down to earth, frequently sporting her pj’s in her videos.
One of my favorite post was from week #2 on putting yourself out there. When I started my blog I didn’t really tell anyone, so using my personal social media was not an option. I left Jess a comment expressing my apprehension and she suggested creating separate accounts for my blog. So I created an Instagram account and I couldn’t be happier. It has been a lot of fun to learn the ropes on another channel.
If you don’t currently read The Golden Girl Blog, check it out. It’s one of my favorites.
Do you read The Golden Girl Blog or subscribe to Ask Jess? If you have other blogging resources, please share in the comments. I would love to check them out and I’m sure others will too.

OH MY GOSH Asa! I am so flattered! Thank you SO much for featuring me! This truly means the world. So lucky to have you following along–thank you so much for the support!
You’re so welcome! I’m glad that you liked the feature. I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment. It means so much to me that you took the time.
I am going to check her out now as well! I felt exactly the same as you when I first started a blog- extremely nervous as to what people would say/think and was hesitant to share with friends and family. One of the benefits to blogging is that you really learn to find your voice and not worry so much about what others think! Have a nice weekend, Asa.
I totally agree with you Cami. You do learn to find your voice and confidence with blogging. I am glad that I am not the only one who was scared when they started. Definitely check out her blog. Have a nice weekend as well!

I was nervous too. But I finally shared on blog on facebook and Tumblr and have only had good responses. I will say that I didn’t get as many comments and followers from it as I’d liked, but I definitely get more views. I’ve set it up so that every time I post, it shows up on my facebook feed and tweets the link. I don’t actually use twitter for anything other than promoting my blog.
That’s awesome Adrienne. I appreciate you sharing. It’s so good to know that I am not alone. I’m glad you have only experienced good responses. That has been my experience as well. I’m still surprised by that. Scheduling social media is the way to go. Have you ever checked out Hootsuite? It’s great for scheduling all your social media in one platform.
