printables kickstart toolkit

Hi, I’m CaitieJ!

Or Caitie if you prefer and I am the founder of The Printables Blog. I created this blog to be a place where bloggers could learn techniques and discover tools to make the printable creation process a lot easier.

Learning how to create an eye-catching printable is not as easy as one thinks (especially if you are a new blogger). When you are just starting to blog, you are having to learn a lot of new things…creating a website, writing blog posts, SEO, email marketing, creating products, and a whole lot more.

And that doesn’t stop even after you have been blogging for a while. Life in the digital world is constantly changing, and that means how we blog is changing with it.

The Printables Blog

Blogging isn’t just writing, there is a whole slew of details that go into making your blog a success. And one of the most important things every blogger should do is grow their email and that is where The Printables Blog comes in.

This blog will show you how to create a printable (or any other kind of digital product that fits your needs) that you can then use to grow your email list which also helps grow your blog. And if you turn out to be really good at printables, you can make a profit by selling them online. Oooh…doesn’t that sound awesome!

Before we go any further, let me tell you a little about myself.

I am one lucky lady who is married to the love of her life and I met him in college all thanks to…ROCKS! And not the shiny expensive kind.

We met as geology majors at the University of Nevada, Reno. Rocks were such an instrumental part of our relationship that my husband even found a way to include it in our wedding vows. Our wedding was both beautiful and educational (lol).

Okay, I will move past the mushy stuff and onto the fact that I am a proud mama to two little monsters…I mean little boys.

I have two toddlers who don’t ever seem to run out of energy and I am serious about that. They seriously don’t seem to stop unless they are eating or sleeping and guess what that is not even a guarantee.

But I love them with my whole being. Together as a family, we live in a fabulous city, Las Vegas, Nevada. In fact, both my husband and I are one of those rare (or used to be rare) born and raised Las Vegans.

As a family, we are constantly outside in some way. Whether it is playing in the backyard, at the park, or hiking in the mountains, we spend a good chunk of our day outside. Even in the summer when it is over 100 degrees (not my favorite time but at least it is only for 4 months).

Random Facts About Me

  • My favorite kind of day is a rainy day…especially with thunder and lightning (that doesn’t happen a lot in Las Vegas).
  • A cup of tea will always make my day. Sun tea, hot tea, iced tea…it doesn’t matter. I love me some tea but I am the weird tea lover who is only interested in black tea!
  • I am a Disney junkie! Like seriously addicted to all things Disney. I can pretty much sing any Disney song by heart or quote the movies.
  • Being out in nature is one of my favorite things to do. From the mountains to any form of water. 
  • Give me a good book any day of the week. I love to read and am especially addicted to romance novels. I know, I know, I should probably read some other types of books but I just love to read a good rom book that sucks me into the point I forgot how long I have been reading.
  • I love to travel! Both in and out of the United States. One of my bucket list goals is to travel to each continent once (and yes that includes Antarctica) and if possible bring back a rock.
  • My last little tidbit is that I love to SLEEP. I mean I loved sleep before kids but since they have entered the picture, I love it even more!
Well now that you know a little more about me (probably more than you wanted), I hope you take some time to check out my blog.
