Abbie Ginther, from Grumbling Grace, was kind enough to be my first guest and she didn’t disappoint! Abbie is a high school literature teacher, who started a blog while on maternity leave (did you know they get a whole year off in Canada?) In this podcast Abbie details how she got the attention of a Babble Editor which landed her a guest post on Babble, how she manages her time & reveals the most surprising aspect of blogging!

If you are looking for a humorous side of parenting, then you’ll definitely want to check out Abbie’s blog, Grumbling Grace where she puts a funny spin on the day to day lifestyle of a stay-at-home mom.

    • Abbie

      I already knew we were BFFs but now we can bond over THE TWITTER?? It just got real, Jessica. I think I love you.

    OH have to go check this out when I get home! Can’t wait to hear it 🙂 I’m sure it’s fantastic!

    Completely agree with your vibe attracts your tribe. I started blogging because I love writing and connecting and I’d much prefer a quality of followers than a large quantity of followers that don’t even read or resonate with my life. I suck so bad at blogging the “right” way but I just keep kinda doing my own thing and hoping somewhere out there in the universe someone is enjoying my vibe. Thanks for all the great tips ladies! Y’all are awesome!

    Hah NO tech skills here either! I love that you both understand that every blog has a different vibe & you encourage new bloggers to give it a try. That’s why bloggers still follow so many other bloggers!

    This was so fun to listen to…so amazing that you’ve worked with Babble, great tips on finding the real people behind the big sites out there. I’m officially an Abbie fan!
