Who’s the face behind Blogging with a Smile?

Hi, I’m Chantel and I’m on a mission to learn everything there is to know about “the business of blogging” and to share my journey with you. My goal is to make Blogging with a Smile your favorite place to learn about blogging, entrepreneurship and online biz and to connect with other bloggers.

When I first decided to start a blog, it was like this whole new world opened up in front of my eyes. I started spending ALL of my spare time learning about blogging, web sites, WordPress, themes, plugins, web design, social media, traffic and well, the list just goes on and on and on. And while I’ve loved applying my new found knowledge, I quickly realized that what I enjoy even more is helping others that are on the same journey, making new connections, and collaborating with other bloggers.

Let’s roll up our sleeves and tackle this thing together. I promise to share what I’ve learned and to be your biggest cheerleader. We can do this!

Blogging with a Smile helped me get through a lot of bumps in the road. Anytime I felt stuck or couldn’t figure something out, this group was there to lift me up and point me in the right direction. Chantel Arnett, is always full of amazingly helpful resources and willing to help at any time. There were times being a part of this group actually kept me from pulling my hair out and walking away from this venture all together. Thank you so much Blogging with a Smile!
