  2. Hi Corinne,
    Seeing you on Enstine’s blog, it’s just awesome. Your story is really an inspiration for the new bloggers.
    Regards.

  3. Hey Corinne,

    It’s great to meet you and you have a very interesting story, You went from being an English grad, to finance to blogging.

    I called that the Law of Attraction. You came back to what you really was passion about all along. Your story will definitely inspire others.

    I’m going to check out one of your posts right now!

    It was a pleasure to meet you Corinne!

  4. Hi Corinne,
    you have a great story and I am sure you learned a lot on your journey
    that can help others. Happy to see you here on Enstine’s blog .
    I wish you all the best
    hope to see more of you

  5. A very informative post, thanks for sharing.
    So many people think that blogging is to do with SEO but as Corinne proves, the success of blogging comes from good relationship building. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Alex,
      Thanks for reading! To be honest, I don’t even think about SEO anymore. When I first started online, keywords where they THING and you had to get them right. Now…not so much. Plus, I’ve always enjoyed the connecting aspect much more than analyzing KWs. So win win!
      Thanks!

  6. Nice to meet a new blogger from here. I supported her what she do. Hope we will connect each other.

  7. This is my first time hearing of Madam Corrinne but reading about her journey and how far she has come is really motivating .

    Failure is indeed inevitable when it comes to any startup and blogging is of course no exception. I will of course be visiting her blog.

    • Emmanuel,

      You make a great point here, failure IS most often a part of business. I think that many people still don’t look at blogging as business and don’t realize how scary it can be.

      Thanks!

  8. Hi Corinne and Enstine,

    I’ve so enjoyed watching your growth from afar, Corinne.

    Ya know what I like about your blog and brand? It’s clear. It’s simple.

    No confusion, no chaos, no fillers, no excess.

    From your blog design, to your business model, I know exactly who you are, what you offer and how it benefits me. I also know your story. Which is probably your strongest selling point.

    I too went thru lean years. Felt like eons. NOT telling my story hurt me, my blog and biz. Folks buy in to humans, and all humans fail, before succeeding, so folks needed to hear my story before I could increase my visibility.

    Thanks for the inspiring share guys.

    • Hey Ryan!
      I missed you man!
      I appreciate that you think my failure is my strongest selling point :p
      Truth is, I don’t aspire to pretend it’s easy or that I magically figured it out overnight. Cause it was so far from that! And pretending I have my stuff together just isn’t me.
      Plus, I figure there’s got to be others out there that feel the same way. Maybe not 5 damn years to figure things out, but still.

      Thanks for reading Ryan! Hope you and Kelli are doing well in NJ

  9. Hello Enstine Muki,

    Thanks for introducing Corinne 🙂

    Nice to meet here 🙂 Hope you are doing great.
    Your journey is just amazing. There are lot many things, which one can learned from you.
    Such an inspiration you are.

    It is great to know how you succeeded about your passion and grow your own online business.

    Indeed caffeine is a hobby. 😉

    Thank you.

  10. Hi Enstine and Corinne,

    Thank you, Enstine and Hello Corinne. It is nice to meet you. Your story is very inspiring; showing that if you are determined and do not let set backs stop you, there is success in the future.

    Like many others, I love to read a success story such as yours. You are an inspiration to everyone who may have not quite gotten to that “Aha Moment.”

    • Hi Monna,
      Thank you, your comment made my day. To anyone out there who hasn’t quite gotten it yet, I sure hope they find inspiration in this. If I can do it, anyone can!

      Corinne

  11. Hi Enstine and Corinne,

    Firstly thanks once again, Enstine, for introducing another top notch blogger to your audience.

    Afte reading your story, Corinne, I can see some parallels with my journey – a failing blogger for many years (I think it was six), and then finally having a lightbulb moment.

    Connecting with other bloggers is such a powerful idea. All bloggers should embrace it , just as you have done (for me the bedrock is blog commenting).

    I am looking forward to connecting with you and following your story through your blog.

    Thanks again guys,

    Kim

    • Hi Kim,
      I’ve definitely seen you around, and I’m thrilled to connect with you 🙂

      I know you’ve accomplished a lot online, but I have to say, it’s kind of comforting to know I’m not the only who struggled for years. But I shared this story knowing that if I struggled to figure out it, there’s no way I’m the only one, you know?

      Thanks so much for reading my story. Here’s wishing you a restful weekend!

  12. Hi Corinne and Enstine :),

    Great to connect with you here on Enstine’s blog.

    Absolutely, it is. Caffeïne is one of my favorite hobbies! 😉

    It sounds like freelance writing was made for you. I certainly can’t say I was writing poems as a child!

    You didn’t have an easy start, though! Your story is very inspiring and it just shows that you can succeed if you just stick with it long enough. It seems that for you, it was mostly a mindset shift?

    When you become a freelance writer you become a business owner and there are tons of things that come with it. It’s hard to see through the chaos of learning and taking action and taking a step back to focus on what really works.

    5 years is quite a long time but you had some success along the way. You just didn’t really find your groove yet. In the end, it wasn’t wasted time. You take all that experience from the courses, the actions that worked and didn’t work for you and made the right choices from there.

    Like you, I also realized the unbelievable (almost magical) power of creating connections. Even though I’m an introvert, I really do enjoy connecting with bloggers. Not only has it provided me with many amazing friends, they also support me and opened new doors for me!

    I subscribed to your list, so I’m sure we’ll get to connect more soon.

    Thank you for sharing your story with us today, Corinne.

    Enstine, I love these featured Thursdays. Keep them coming!

    – Jasper

    • Hey Jasper!
      Yes! Someone else who thinks caffeine is a hobby! Love it!

      I was kind of a nerdy kid. Not super into school, but I was that kid who absolutely loved getting books for Christmas. My sisters always made fun of me.

      I agree, it may very well be a mind shift thing. I spent way too much time not realizing that what I started doing was what I really, really loved, you know?

      I definitely had some success along the way and got my name out there. I also met tons of awesome writers and bloggers so it’s all good 🙂

      Thanks so much for reading! Hope you have a killer weekend!

  13. Hey Enstine,

    I see you found another fabulous blogger to introduce to your community and if they haven’t had a chance to meet Corinne yet at least they’re learning a little more about her here.

    Thank you Corinne for the mention by the way, it was so nice to meet you too. You are proof that relationships work and can take you far. It’s who you know when you’re trying to build a business and I’m so glad that although you were super frustrated not getting anywhere previously that you hung in there. I know that happens for so many people but I think we all just have to find our own place in the online world. I’m SO happy you found yours.

    Thanks Enstine for sharing Corinne with us and you both be sure to enjoy the rest of your week.

    • Hi Adrienne,
      Thanks for reading! You’re one of my favorite blogger friends who does blogger outreach and connecting right! You’re always there to share and engage, and I love that about you.

      Sharing this story is kind of scary for me. No one wants to admit they’ve failed. But I know if I floundered back and forth and struggled with getting ahead, there has to be others out there who feel the same frustration. And through great failure comes great success. Or something like that, right? 🙂

  14. Hi Enstine and Corinne!

    I love when a blogger can share a good story. This one is so wonderful Corinne. So many come into blogging and then leave. Not you…You hung in there, turned things around and found your way.
    What a wonderful inspiration to all bloggers! Your free 12 month planner is an amazing idea. Something every blogger needs in order to move forward.

    -Donna

    • Why thank you so much Donna! I’ve dabbled in other niches and failed, but honestly, all this experience has helped me learn what I really love to do. I just wish it hadn’t taken to long lol.

      Thank you for Donna. I appreciate it!

  15. Hi Corinne

    Nice meeting you here at Enstine. Your story is amazing – one that so many bloggers can identify with. I totally agree that what works for one don’t necessarily work for the other person. It’s good to take advice from others of what made them successful but at the end of the day each one have to find their own ‘aha’ moment and what will work for them. Glad to hear that you found yours.

    Thanks Enstine for allowing Corinne the opportunity to share her story. Have a great day

    • It’s wonderful to meet you too Yvonne!
      I totally agree with you, taking advice from others who have found success is good, but their methods are not always going to work for everyone. I spent years taking this course and that course that taught the exact method others used, but you know what? They’re not me. I took a while but I’m following my path and doing what I love

  16. Hi Corinne

    What a story and you are just an inspiration. Being able to face these blogging challenges and overcome them is one of the thing that makes blogging fun.

    Good to know that you are among the 5% of bloggers that make their blog a success.

    Nice to meet you. Thanks for sharing your story. Take care and have a wonderful week.

    • Ikechi,
      Thank you for reading. Glad you liked it. I’m very much a work in progress but I think I’m finally at a place where I feel good going forward

      Have a great rest of the week (and weekend!)
