"Tiffytalks" by Tiffany Wilson
What do you hope to experience at Blogging While Brown 2014?
I hope to network with other bloggers that I can collaborate with and learn from. I also want to know the business side of blogging, i.e. maximizing earning potential, legal aspects and SEO.
Why did you decide to start a blog?
I believe blogging is apart of my purpose and a way in which God is helping me to solidify my voice as a motivational speaker, thought leader and writer. I also enjoy words and I respect the power of words to heal and help others.
When people come to your blog, what will they find?
Tiffytalks.com is an inspirational blog, helping women to live intentionally, love fully and believe boldly. It's a unique mix of spiritual insights from my life, the world and pop-culture.
Who are your blogging heroes?
I like Ali Brown & Lysa TerKeurst. I'm new to blogging, so I know more about speakers that also blog, like me.
Do you need something from your fellow bloggers to take your blogging to the next level?
I'm interested in collaborating, by doing guest blogging or spotlights, tips on SEO, top industry things to do and not do. I have good content, but if people aren't able to find my blog then it's not effective.
What do you have to offer blogger to take them to the next level?
I can help other bloggers ensure their content and blog image aligns with all of their social media platforms i.e. branding, creativity. I can also help other bloggers find their authentic voice and stick with it! In addition, I have a unique way of writing about difficult topics or things people think about, but opt not to talk about, in digestible and relative ways.
What are your top tips for bloggers?
1. Be the expert you are by offering your readers more than just your opinion, do research and include links and industry facts to show that you care and know what you're talking about.
2. Be clear and concise about the "how to's." Make sure your content will enrich your reader's lives by detailing "how to" get it done.
3. Be authentic, there's a lot of copy cats out there, but nothing beats an original. Stick to your voice, your vision and do your best not to vacillate!
Where do you see you and your blog in 5 years?
In 5 years, I will be a notable motivational speaker living in New York, Philadelphia or London with my family, and Tiffytalks.com will be a go-to inspirational blog for women, spotlighting those who continue to take the leap of faith to live a life of purpose on purpose.
