  • Charles Johnston

    Great podcast both of you, I just picked up the book on Friday and have already learned so much. I picked up the kindle version which is great with all the links that are provided. Thank you Tammy for getting Becca on the show you both rock!

    • Tammy Helfrich

      Thanks for listening, Charles!

    • Becca

      I’m so glad it’s helping, Charles!

  • Camilla

    Great podcast! Listened to it this morning instead of the news. I must say it was much better, more informative and left me feeling encouraged and energized. I would still be pulling my hair out if it wasn’t for Becca and her tutorials, help and more. Thank you both for everything you do!

    • Tammy Helfrich

      That’s awesome, Camilla.I love how much she wants to help others with their blogs.

      Thanks, Camilla! I’m happy to help ;)

  • Rick Theule

    Great show. Thanks for having Becca join you. I love having the ability to pick her brain, read her posts, an use her tips and tricks as I develop my blog.

    • Tammy Helfrich

      Isn’t she great?

    • Becca

      Thanks, Rick!

  • Jane Tuttle

    Another interesting conversation. Enjoyed learning a bit more about Pinterest and how Becca came to blogging full time. Tammy, you have a great variety of guests.

    • Tammy Helfrich

      I appreciate your support, Jane!

  • Susan Ekins

    I enjoyed listening to this discussion. I am a blogger who posts only one to two times a month, because I write only when I am “moved” to say something. But I need to post more often. How can I come up with content?
    Also, supposedly I have 2700 followers, and yet in 2013, my posts were read only about 2700 times. How can I attract readers who will read and comment on my posts?
    I would love to win the book to have these and other questions answered. Thank you for the opportunity to possibly win this much needed book.

    • Tammy Helfrich
