A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win a spot in Bloggers Get Social through a giveaway that Julie @ Girl on the Move was hosting. I entered the giveaway to support her and was beyond surprised to learn that I had won!  I have spent October receiving awesome newsletters full of information and discussing great blogging tips in a special Facebook group. It has really been an interesting experience.

As you know, I took a break from full-time blogging in August and September to move and get married. I’m excited to be back to blogging and even more excited to be learning new things. Since yesterday was my 28th birthday, I’m going to share 28 quick and simple blogging tips with you! You’re going to want to read all the way to the end for a special surprise!
