The Top 10 Blog Posts on TCB: 100 blog posts & counting (giveaway inside)

I published my first blog post on TheContentBug.com on December 13th, 2016. Before my blog was even launched. Heck, before my blog was even finished being designed! I wanted there to be content on my website when it officially went live. So I launched a couple of blog posts so people had something to look at besides the ‘Home’ and ‘About’ pages.

The Platforms, Products, & Services I Use To Run My Blog

When I started my blog, I wanted to know what successful bloggers were using.  I just had to know what website platform they were using and what hosting service they had.

5 Things You Need To Do To Treat Your Blog Like A Business 

5 Things You Need To Do To Treat Your Blog Like A Business 

I feel like just about every blogger I talk to wants to transform their side-hustle blog into a full-time business. And I get it.  I was one of those people too just a few months ago.

What I Learned From Only Working 4 Hour Days for 1 Month

Why I’ve Stopped Trying To Grow My Instagram & What I’m Doing Instead

Over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about how I gained 1.1k Instagram followers in a month. But since then… *crickets*. I’ve had people ask me what happened.
