    I did major redesign and rebranding in 2018. I’m still working on the focus of the blog, but it will always be on my girls. Good luck this year.

    • BJ Bangs says:

      Your redesign is great! And your girls are gorgeous!! I will have a lot more time at the end of this month, so I’m looking forward to working on all kinds of cool things then.

  2. It’s sounds like you’re embarking on a very exciting time! I’m also working on some redesign projects, and the advice I’ve received is to design for mobile first, and then figure out the desktop design. In the past designers always did it the other way around, but now more and more traffic is coming from mobile devices, and that trend is expected to continue. By starting with the mobile design you’ll optimizing the site for the biggest source of traffic and putting yourself in a good position for the future.

    I hope that helps! Thanks so much for joining the Challenge, and all the best to you in 2019!

      Thanks for the advice. Any links or suggestions on how do you work with the affiliate links and email sign up forms for mobile. By the way, I love your book. It’s a real inspiration. I’m a bit of in a holding pattern until March 31, when the job ends. but I am trying to get my thoughts put together for the big re-launch.

  3. We wish you best of luck for 2019 ! Purrs

  4. That’s great that you get lots of traffic from SEO. I think you will find Pinterest helpful. I started taking it seriously in late 2018 and it’s made a big difference with traffic.

    Happy 2019!

    I am hoping to do better on Pinterest this year so I hope to see you there! My problem was getting the hang of the pin size so thank heavens for templates from Canva and Envato Elements.

    2019 will be a good year for you and I look forward to seeing a lot more of your posts!

      Canva is great for sizing Pins. Are you going to be putting together a class on smartphone video this year?? Or do you have some youtube videos you’d recommend?? I’m sure I will see you around on Pinterest. I’ll start following you.

    Yay for cat tourism. Although I bring my cat along on my travels. Plush the Traveling Persian would like to do to one of those big cat events one day. He thinks it would be really awesome to meet Jackson Galaxy or Pam Johnson-Bennett some day (so do I.) I look forward to reading along!

    Congratulations on 9 years of blogging! I have back and forth years with my blogging too as some years life gets in the way. I’m hoping 2019 is a big year for me, dogs, and the blog.

    I don’t know much about book publishing. I have taken several classes on video production and I’ve read a few books that I like that might be helpful. If you have a chance check out: How to Shoot Video That Doesn’t Suck and The Bare Bones Camera Course for Film and Video. Hopefully that helps.
