Well, hello there!
It's so nice to meet you! My name is Carlie Dayle, and I'm obsessed with all things blogging. Something tells me that you're a blogger, too. I bet we've got more in common than you think!
You've come to this page to learn more about me and my blog. Well, that's a long story. It all starts back in 2008 when I started my first blog. Since then, I've been kind of obsessed with the Internet. The Web is a fantastic vehicle for creating community, sharing creative ideas, and connecting with kindred spirits.
After allowing my first blog to wither and die, I started my second blog in 2015. Since then I've been consumed with all things blogging. I've spent countless hours devouring blogging education, listening to podcasts, creating content, and perfecting social media strategies. Remember, I'm obsessed!
Why I Created This Blog
There's no doubt that my primary blog, a Cajun in Cali, has become a significant part of my life. But blogging hasn't always been easy. Over the years, I've experienced highs and lows, learned hard lessons, and even lost some money. But for some reason, I more obsessed than ever.
So why start another blog? The truth is, I enjoy teaching. And if I can use my personal experience to teach others to avoid pitfalls and mistakes, then I'll have accomplished something extraordinary!
It didn't take long for me to get the itch to teach others to blog. But blogging content doesn't belong on my primary blog. I needed a place to dive deep into the basics of blogging and social media. And a travel blog isn't the best place to do that. So, CarlieDayle.com was born.
