Content Batching Episode 326 is so informative and came at the perfect time. Karli and B

This episode is so informative and I heard it at the perfect time. I struggle with staying on top of all the tasks involved with a food blog. Karli offered so many strategies and Bjork guided the conversation perfectly! I listened twice, took copious notes and started a priority list. My first blog year I was working off adrenaline but these last few months I am paralyzed. This episode is changing my mindset. Thanks.
