It's Blog Crush time again! This is one of our favorite series here on The Pursuit of Balance because we get to share blogs that we love with all of you. Sometimes these are wildly popular blogs with hundred of thousands of followers, and other times they're smaller - either way, each of the blogs in this series has brought something into our blogging lives that we were missing before we found them and Caffeinate and Conquer is no different!
It's a bit out of the norm for us to do a Blog Crush on a blog that is focussed solely on blogging itself, but I recently started reading Kallie's blog But First, Coffee which quickly led me to her blog focussed on helping other bloggers improve their spaces. Kallie was originally a teacher out of college so it's no wonder she's great at educating others and encouraging them to be their very best. I love the attitude a blog like this requires, it really requires Kallie to look beyond the competitive side of blogging and just say "I want us all to win".
On a side note, I didn't even recall, but Nicole did a whole Blog Crush post on But First, Coffee so if you want more details on that particular blog of Kallie's - here's the post. Apparently, we're both crushing on this lady!
Caffeinate and Conquer stemmed from that love of teaching and her love of all things SEM, SEO and blogging in general. What I love most about C&C is that Kallie offers multiple types of lessons and ways to learn. Some of us like to read a book to learn, others prefer to watch a video. Kallie has all the mediums you could need right on her site and it's all her information and intelligence she's sharing. She's learned a lot over the years and I've personally found her Better Blog in 10 Minutes a Day videos extremely valuable. I've already started making changes to this here blog and I think it's made a huge difference and remotivated me to grow this space.
I don't want to spend this whole post writing about Caffeinate and Conquer though because Kallie does so much more than just write for that blog. She also has her personal blog: But First, Coffee where she writes about her life, beauty products, fashion pieces and posts that I love like 'How to be more Optimistic'.
I've truly enjoyed getting to know Kallie through her blog and I know I've grown as a blogger from watching her videos and going through her e-courses on Caffeinate and Conquer. If you're a blogger, this is something you don't want to miss!
