Hello, I’m Shailaja Vishwanath: Your friendly blogging and social media coach.
I’m a stay at home solo entrepeneur, fitness fan, wife to a wonderful man and mom to the most amazing teen daughter.
When I am not doing my most favourite thing in the world (blogging), I’m doing the next best thing- Reading. From fiction to non-fiction, I have a pretty wide array of interests.
Welcome to Blogging and Social Media Simplified here on my website.
I help bloggers and website owners grow their traffic and social media presence in an organic manner.
Engagement and learning is what I recommend along with organic, sustained growth in the blogging arena.
Welcome to my space and I am glad that you’re here. Here are just some of the things you’ll find on my blog.
Whether you need help with SEO, affiliate marketing, e-mail marketing or growing your social media channel, I’ve got something for everyone.
I absolutely love all things to do with blogging! I’ve been doing this for 12 years now and each year I keep learning even more as I go along.
Some really popular posts on the blog include my round up of the best blogging apps and apps for entrepreneurs (most of which are completely free).

Making money with your Blog
If you’re in the blogging space to make money, I can help you with that too.
For new bloggers, I recommend Affiliate Marketing as a great way to get started.

In late 2017, I took an active interest in Pinterest as a way to drive organic traffic to my blog. What began as a hobby bloomed into a career.
In April 2018, I quit my earlier job to dive into my online consulting business.
From tutorials on this blog to workshops and designing Pinterest pins for happy clients, I talk about it all here. Whether you’re just getting started with Pinterest or need advanced tips on Tailwind (the Pinterest scheduler) or need guaranteed ways to design pins that get you clicks, find them all on this site.
If you know me at all, you’d know that this fits right into my Type A persona. I LOVE lists, I love being productive and I love finding ways to make the most of your time.
Even though I am in the social media space, I spend very little time on social media itself.
Whether you are a working professional, stay at home parent, hobby blogger or running your own business, I share productivity tips that will keep you on top of your game

P.S. You may occasionally stumble across a parenting post on this blog because when I launched it in 2007, that was how it all began. From ‘Diary of a Doting Mom’ to ‘Blogging and Social Media Simplified’ this blog has come a long way and I have loved every avatar it has taken on.
