025: Authentic Blogging with Rubyellen Bratcher

Rubyellen Bratcher

Rubyellen Bratcher of the blog Cakies has been a blogger for 7 years, she homeschools her four girls, is a published author and one of the most consistent bloggers that I have followed. Even though we don’t run blogs in exactly the same genre, I felt really inspired after talking to Rubyellen to blog what I love and to not think through all the blogging strategies too much. Her organic growth is inspiring and evident as I have followed her blog through the years.
