I knew that Jenika was something special the very first time I came across her website, Psychology for Photographers. She had a way with words that just pulled me in. I was even more charmed when I met her in person at BlogHer this summer – we were speaking together on a panel, so we went out for pizza the night before our talk to get to know one another even better.
She has a way with words, and a clarity that rings so true. Little bits of wisdom flow so easily, you almost can’t even keep up with them.
I’m in the midst of working through her From Portfolio to Profit Engine booklet, which I plan to review as soon as I am done. Then I learned that she has launched her Irresistible Words course and it is on SALE through November 6th, 2013.
(Psst… Want to get BOTH of them for an amazing deal? Pick up the Business Library Bundle! On sale through Nov. 6th as well!)
Here is her latest video — What Your English Class Should Have Taught You Instead. Just a taste of what the course includes!
If you’re tired of all of your blog posts sounding the same, and feeling like they just aren’t getting the attention they deserve, you should go RIGHT NOW and pick up a copy for yourself. Just reading through the preview copy on her site, I can’t wait to dive in to this. One thing at a time, right? But I did not want to wait to share it with you. Hurry, now, before it is too late! I promise you, Jenika will help with finding your irresistible words and it will make all of your writing even better!

Back when I first started this blog in 2011, it was living at Business of Awesome. But as I worked on plans for it behind the scenes, I knew I wanted to write about what I specialize in, which is boudoir photography. After many countless hours of debate, I moved the whole site over to Business of Boudoir.
I was never happy with the change.
I felt like saying “Business of Boudoir” out loud could potentially induce a coma-like state. It was SOOOOOOO boring. So not ME. It was similar to wearing a jacket where the lining of the sleeve is a bit twisted. It just doesn’t fit right. I annoys you. It makes you a little crazy.
Once I get in to that state of funk, it becomes hard to write. I fight it. I don’t want to, all because I don’t like saying it out loud. (The story about the Princess & the Pea? It may have been all about me. Maybe.)
Within a month of making the big move, I declared I was moving it all back. Which I did last night. I still have to make the final 301 redirect changes to the domain to finalize the move once I finish moving all the settings over, but by tonight it will all be back where it belongs.
Business of AWESOME.
Which fits my goal – to help you have the most awesome boudoir business possible. What we get to do is so amazing to me, so powerful in helping women see themselves to be the incredible people that they are. It is truly awesome, full of awe, full of inspiration.

Darren Rowse of ProBlogger is a fabulous blogger that I’ve followed for many years – since he started his first blogs, actually. He shares a TON of fantastic information on his site, and if you have a blog and want help making it better? His site should be at the top of your reading list!
One of the books that he has written is “31 Days to Building a Better Blog“, and the new updated 2012 edition is fantastic! This downloadable e-book is designed to help you revitalize your blog. You work through 31 tasks – each day with something to DO and teaching to go with it on both the WHY and the HOW of the task – and working through the process will help you to turn your site into powerhouse you’ve always dreamed of.
Darren is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of blogging by offering all of his books for $10 between now and December 7, 2012. (After that, it will return to the regular $29.99 price, which still is an amazing value!) You can purchase 31 Days to Building a Better Blog HERE and check out the rest of his books HERE.
These books are not written specifically for photographers, but they include things that everyone should be doing for their website, no matter what field they are in.
Working through 31 Days to Building a Better Blog as a Group
I don’t like working through books like this alone, so I was super excited when I mentioned on Twitter & Facebook that I was considering doing it and a number of people stepped up and said that they wanted to join me! I started a group on Facebook for it yesterday – 31 Days to Building a Better Blog Over 8 Weeks – and if you would like to get a copy of the book and join us, we would love to have you! The group has members from all walks of life, both photographers and other bloggers, and all levels of experience. Everyone is welcome!
About the 8 weeks part? I knew with the holidays in December it would be a challenge to get through the whole 31DBBB in 31 days, so I’m planning to work through it over 8 weeks. Now until the end of January, 2013. It isn’t too late to join us! Whether you want to join us or not, I highly recommend getting a copy of this book.
