Hi fellow bloggers!
Not only will this be another place to share your stories and wisdom, but I will also be using it as a way to share great blogging tips and products I’ve discovered. I know many of you ladies (and gentlemen!) are into blogging for the long haul, so I hope the information I provide becomes helpful. That being said, some recommended products may contain affiliate links, or come directly from my own business, Risen Upon Thee.
Also, if you have a blogging tip or product you’d love to feature in this linkup, please contact me! I would love to share your knowledge with everyone else, so we can all grow and help one another. I’ll also share a bit about your blog, testimony and mission online if you would like! Applicable to both contributors and non-contributors.
Please share only Christian related or homemaking posts here. Any links not in line with these topics will be removed. You are welcome to engage with the posts of other bloggers, but it is not required. If you would like to feature this linkup on your blog, use the button below! 🙂

Now, without further delay… one of my top blogging tips!
Are You Using an RSS Campaign?
Not too long ago I was logging into MailChimp every Friday to craft my weekly newsletter. I would upload images used for articles that week, write a synopsis of the article, and link the title back to the original post. What sounds like a simple process took quite a bit of time, and I could only hope there was a better way. As it turns out… there is! And you should definitely be using it.
Instead of manually crafting the article recap of your newsletter, you can create an RSS campaign that automatically generates the posts you publish and sends them out according to the schedule to be set. Sounds too good to be true, right? 😉
Here’s what the weekly article recap looks like here, automatically generated with no effort on my part:
Of course I had to create the initial design and layout, but once that’s finished, the rest takes care of itself every week. You don’t need MailChimp to set up an RSS campaign, but MailChimp does make it easy, and I have written a helpful guide to get you started.
Stop manually crafting your post recaps and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of RSS! ♥
