“Over here we measure success by how many people successful next to you/ Here we say you broke if everybody else broke except for you.” — “Boss” by The Carters

I am determined to make 2019 my most successful year yet, but I can’t count 2019 as a win unless you’re winning, too.

Here are some things I think you should do to be successful in 2019 and how See Jane Write can help you with each step.

Get clear on who you are and what you want. You need to know what kind of writer or blogger you are and what kind of writer or blogger you are not. The See Jane Write Collective membership site has content to help you do just that. You’ll find lessons to help you define your vision and your values, your mission and your message. You’ll find content to help you write your own manifesto and an in-depth personal branding workbook. Plus, you’ll get access to monthly goal setting workbooks and workshops to help you get clear on what you want for your writing and blogging life.

Stay consistent by staying ahead. You need a blog and you need to update that blog regularly (preferably once a week). The See Jane Write Collective membership site has lessons to help you launch a blog if you haven’t done so yet and content to help you generate post ideas and find time to blog. I also host a weekly virtual Girls Write-In for members. During this time we write together for one hour — the perfect time for you to write your blog post for the following week!

Squad up. Writers and bloggers need community. The free See Jane Write Network Facebook group is a great way to start meeting fellow writers and bloggers to cheer you on as you pursue your goals and dreams. Through the See Jane Write Collective, you can get even more support through our group coaching sessions, goal setting workshops, writing critique sessions and more. The membership site also includes information to help you build a tribe of your own through your email list, your social media platforms, and through hosting events.

Get paid. At See Jane Write we are not here for that starving artist cliche. I want you to be a well-fed writer! The See Jane Write Collective membership site has content to help you draft a blog business plan and throughout 2019 I’ll be adding even more content to help you make money as a writer. Next year I’ll also be adding more content to help you grow your email list through guest posting and more lessons to help you improve your writing.

To join the See Jane Write Collective and get access to all of the content of the membership site and invitations to members-only workshops and events, apply to become a member here. Enrollment for the See Jane Write Collective closes December 31 and won’t reopen until the spring of 2019.
