Promoting creative women is the #1 goal of Tip Junkie. Today, Amy with Mod Podge Rocks is sharing her 5 Tips for Successful Blogging as well as her 4 favorite DIY projects. She is sharing how she has found success and fulfillment through blogging. In an effort to empower you, our readers and fellow creative souls, we would like to welcome you to the Blogosphere's version of the Master Class. Just like Oprah's Master Class on OWN, but for Bloggers.

What is Oprah's Master Class on OWN?

It's a biography series that shares hard-won insight from extraordinary achievers whose paths have inspired Oprah—and countless others.  There are always 3-5 lessons that viewers can take away from their shared experiences and it is truly inspiring and empowering.  We are hoping to do the same here on Tip Junkie by featuring successful bloggers.

We will be regularly featuring inspiring bloggers who have found success and fulfillment through their online endeavors. Join us and find yourself empowered through their words of wisdom.

Amy ~ Mod Podge Rocks

Please give a warm Tip Junkie welcome to Amy of Mod Podge Rocks!

1.  Introduce yourself to Tip Junkies. I am a 34-year-old transplant from Seattle living in Atlanta, Georgia. I was born from creative genes, so I'm carrying on the tradition.  In addition to Mod Podge, I love the color blue, dogs, reading, cold weather, funny movies, road rallies, yogurt, garden gnomes, sock monkeys, running, tattoos, being outdoors, buttons, snuggling and apparently blogging. Who knew I would love it this much? 2.  What aspect of Social Media is the most effective for you? Facebook!  My group is over 9,000, and it's very interactive.  I use it as a place to ask my readers about themselves (weekly questions: what are you doing this weekend?), to answer questions and to share posts that I can fit onto my blog.  Everyone feels like they are a part of the community. 3.  What have you learned that was a "game changer" for you? Use Stumble Upon!  It's been amazing for my blog.  I'm also working on SEO {search engine optimization} right now, and so far, so good. 4.  What's the one thing you make sure you do everyday? Take the time to answer e-mails from readers - I honestly feel that keeping my connections with them is one of the most important things I can do for my blog! 5.  Last words of wisdom? Work hard at blogging, but never sacrifice your family or your life for it.  Include them in the process as much as you can so that when you succeed, they do too. Amy with Mod Podge Rocks Check out Amy's Favorite Projects: Where to find Amy in the Blogosphere? A huge thanks to Amy for taking time out of her busy, busy schedule to share her hard-won insight. This advice may sound short and sweet, but that's the point!  Master Class is all about effective and to-the-point advice which is so manageable you can do them in your own life, starting today. That's how we like it here on Tip Junkie right?  {snicker}
