Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night!
In today’s episode, we’re talking to my sweet friend Mariko Clark, or Marri, as I call her. Marri an amazing writer who writes about hard questions, hope, and the Holy Spirit over on her blog, MarikoClark.com. Her writing is deep and real, and always makes me cry (in the very best way), but she tells the truth about life with pinches of humor and wit and sarcasm that leave you laughing, while you’re crying. It’s just the best.
Marri is also the newest member of my team here in our little corner of the internet. She is such a gift to me and this space is so much better because of her, and I just know you’re going to love her.
So — we have something special, and a bit different for you in today’s episode, and I’m so excited about it.
In this episode, Marri kicks me out of the host chair so she can interview me about a topic we’re asked about constantly: Blogging!
I’ve been blogging and writing for more than 6 years now (I can’t believe it’s been that long!), and I’m so excited to share with you what I’ve learned along the way.
In today’s episode, we’re going to be talking about how to start a blog and how to grow a blog. We’re talking about the logistics, answering questions like, “How do I build a website?” and “How do I get more followers?” and “How do I make money from a blog?” And we’re talking about the heart issues, answering questions like, “There are so many blogs out there, is there even room for me?” and “How do I promote my blog without feeling gross and sleazy?” and “How vulnerable should my blog posts be?” and so much more.
So — if you have been dreaming about starting a blog, or a business, or writing a book, or even a podcast, I cannot wait to share this with you.
So, with that said, you can listen to the episode in a few different ways.

The John Wayne quote she messed up is, “Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway.”
