how to hire a freelancer

As your website grows and your business begins to scale, you will probably need to start outsourcing some of your blogging tasks in order to continue with that growth.  But which tasks do you hire out?

We’re almost three weeks into January, and our team is knee-deep in conference planning. Something we adore about planning conferences is getting to pick out gorgeous venues, decide on delicious food to serve and choosing our line-up of awesome speakers.  For the last two years, our Mediavine conferences have provided a plethora of knowledge from a spectrum of hand-picked speakers. (Just check out our YouTube channel for a sampling.) This year for our TWO events in Chicago and Austin, we expect DOUBLE the information overload.  We’re so excited to have Karli Bitner of Cooking with Karli on the blog today! She’ll be speaking about traffic growth at our 2019 Mediavine Conference in Chicago in June, but today she’s sharing with us how she got started with blogging, how she makes time for her website alongside her busy family and her strategies for growth.  We’re so […]

Dan Western, Wealthy Gorilla

Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to build such a successful business that you can drop everything and go live abroad or be able to travel more often?  Many of our Mediavine travel publishers have done just that, like Kristin Addis from Be My Travel Muse, Gary Arndt of Everything Everywhere and Andrzej Ejmont of Wanderlust Storytellers. But Mediavine’s not just for travel bloggers (or any one type of publisher, for that matter!) Take our publisher Dan Western of Wealthy Gorilla, for example. He’s 23 years old, lives in and runs his website from Bali and travels Southeast Asia in his spare time. Sounds like a dream, right?  It’s not! It’s totally real.  We invited Dan to the Mediavine blog today to tell us all about his life as a content creator. Thanks so much for joining us, Dan!  Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, and […]

Publisher Interview: Sara Trezzi of Gathering Dreams

One of our favorite attributes that all Mediavine publishers share is that in one way or another, they are all chasing their dreams.  Whether it’s in health and fitness like Christel from Diabetes Strong, finance like Kelan from The Savvy Couple or a combination of things like Alexis from Fitnancials, MVPs challenge the conventional wisdom, buck the system and carve out their own niche in the digital space Today’s interview with Mediavine publisher Sara Trezzi from the website Gathering Dreams is another perfect example. We loved hearing about her blogging philosophy and her sheer hustle to achieve the life of her dreams.  Let’s welcome Sara to the Mediavine blog!   Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, and your everyday life. My name is Sara, the dreamer, and I run Gathering Dreams, a blog in which I collect everything I love in life. Daniele, my […]

Part of the fun of creating your own sustainable business is getting to spend any spare time however you want.  Whether that’s raising a family, a horse, a pygmy goat, five chickens and a couple dogs like our publisher Kyle James of Rather Be Shopping or acting in musical theatre like Latasha Peterson of Arts & Budgets, the sky is the limit.  We seriously love hearing what Mediavine income enables our publishers to do, and today we’re excited for you to meet Gary Arndt of Everything Everywhere. Gary visits about 20 countries a year.  We are so pumped to hear about a much longer journey — his blogging journey — on our blog today! Welcome, Gary.  Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, and your everyday life. In 2007 I sold my home to travel around the world. I sort of just never stopped. Today I run […]
