I'm sending my weekly email a day early so I don't bombard you with more emails than is necessary.
I know I've sent more than I usually do, but I wanted to make sure that if you're interested, you don't miss out before they close the doors on registrations for Elite Blog Academy.
Tonight is the last night you can register forEBA, and Ruth will not open the gates again until 2017. I cringe to think where I'd be right now if I had chosen to postpone signing up for EBA. Remember, doors close at 11:59 pm EST TONIGHT (2/26).
I've told you before how much EBA changed my life and blog. And the great thing, as a life long member I get to review the information any time I want. The same will be true for you if you join EBA! And, because I think it's so awesome I'm offering a FREE bonus -- a 30 minute coaching call with me to discuss all your Blogging questions. Several of you have already jumped on this offer! Just send me your welcome email and we'll schedule a call!
So, if you're struggling with making an income on your blog, or you think blogging might be a way to quit your job and stay home with your kids, or you're looking to start a work from home business,consider joining EBA.
This past week a reader left a nasty comment on the blog that was so off putting I barely knew how to respond. Sometimes when things like this happen, it's easy for me just to blow it off and realize it's coming from someone who's angry, jealous, or upset with something that has nothing to do with me. Other times, I take these types of messages personally, and they either hurt my feelings or just piss me off.
This comment was the piss me off type. When I read it, my blood was boiling.
Now most of the time when I'm attacked, I just take a step back and try to gain some perspective. I ask myself, is there any truth in what this person is saying or are they entirely projecting their own crap onto me? But this time, I was struggling to find her angle and gain some insight. It seemed like it was an attack for the sake of an attack and it bothered me.
I know that owning a blog puts me out there in the public eye and opens me up to ridicule, opinions, unsolicited advice, nasty comments as well as supportive feedback and moving emails from folks I've helped. It comes with the territory. I get that. But that doesn't give someone the right to be downright nasty and mean.
This got me thinking about how social media almost brings out the worst is some people. Because they are responding anonymously, they feel powerful and justified to behave like an ass. I mean some of the things people to say to others on social media they would never say to someone's face.
And therein lies the problem. Since when is it ok to be disrespectful to someone just because you don't agree with something someone said? Why is it ok to name call, attach assumptions and be nasty all because we don't personally know one another?
I love getting comments from my readers, but I won't tolerate being disrespected. Nobody should tolerate disrespect right? I hope that if you leave a comment, even if it's provocative or you don't share my viewpoint, others will comment with respect and vice versa.
I left the comment up and responded to the woman. Of course, I never heard back from her. She never replied to my comment with so much as an 'oh sorry, I didn't realize'. But hopefully, I gave her something to think about so that the next time she leaves a comment whether on my blog or someone else's, she'll do so with kindness. Because it's just as easy to be nice as it is to be nasty.

Have great weekend friends!
Last week I let you all know about The Elite Blog Academy Courseand how it would be opening its door today, February 22nd for only a few short days.
In that time, I have received countless calls and emails asking more questions about the course and my personal success. I want to address these issues today to help you make your final decisions before it’s too late.
My blog was an outgrowth of my then coaching practice where I helped women overcome their underearning and create a healthy relationship with money. A friend had been trying to convince me for years to change my business model, but I stupidly ignored her. After spending five years caring for my mother who suffers from dementia, and trying to maintain my coaching practice, I finally realized I couldn’t keep up the demands any longer. I just didn’t have what I needed to provide so much individual attention to 20 clients a week. I wanted to continue to help people with their money issues, and blogging seemed an excellent way to accomplish this task.
Everyone knows about the absurdly high cost of home printing. The replacement cartridges cost almost as much as the printer!
A few years ago, a professor from the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay, figured out a way to make the most of printer ink. With the help of the school’s computer technicians, he concluded that printing things in the thin Century Gothic font used up 30% less ink than other typical fonts. Of course, printing in draft mode can save ink too!
