…you still consider yourself a blogger at heart.
…you feel like you are constantly chasing the latest platform to hit the market while turning your back on your greatest asset – your blog.
…your blog has suffered as a result of you trying to be everywhere – instead of where you should have been all along.
It’s time to breathe life back into your blog and take it to the next level.
Why Blogging? Blogging is So Last Decade
Blogging is the stalwart of the online world, whether you want to admit it or not.
Think back to when you first began. It was probably just you and your blog. You’d spend countless hours typing away in solitude trying to generate content that you believed people needed to hear. It has been your loyal companion, serving a crucial role, throughout your online journey.
Sure, fancier, trendier, and sexier technologies have come along, including podcasting and various video-based platforms like YouTube, Periscope, and blab.im but blogging remains the core of online business.
Your blog serves as the home base of everything you do online. It is the one central location where you fully control how and when your message is delivered. It also provides a conduit for an unencumbered license to unleash your creativity.
What is Top Shelf Blogging?
“Top Shelf” means of the highest quality. For example, liquor from the top shelf is typically reserved for those connoisseurs in the know or of deep pockets.
There is a certain level of luxury and class associated with being top shelf.
You should aspire to provide top shelf content to your audience. You should yearn for making your blog the absolute best it can be…no longer ordinary…no longer settling for average.
Your blog should serve as a harbinger of quality in what it provides, how it looks, and its overall function.
You are Not Alone…But You are Different
You may feel like you are fighting a losing battle. You may believe you are the only one going through all of the struggles of trying to stand up a success blog. You may think you are way behind everyone else with no hope of ever catching up. You may feel completely overwhelmed by all of the tasks you need to do and all of the information you have yet to learn.
But you aren’t.
There are thousands of bloggers out there just like you – trying to find spare time to dedicate to their blog so it can live up to what they had initially imagined.
It’s completely natural, and expected, to have feelings of doubt, fear, and inadequacy.
But you are different too. You are here looking for ways to improve your position, expand your capabilities, and foster the growth of your greatest asset – your blog.
You believe in the power of blogging and want to provide a quality product that separates you from the thousands of other blogs out there.
You’ve come to the right spot.

A Little About Me
I started Top Shelf Blogging as a way to collaborate with other creatives who take pride in the art of blogging.
I have over 20 years of experience in the computer industry (pre-internet even!) and have been blogging and building online platforms since 2013. I have documented much of my journey as a parent entrepreneur over at CrazyDadLife.com.
I understand what it takes to struggle with a full-time job while also trying to create and nurture a blog that means something to those it serves.
I’ve explored podcasts, social media, and other entrepreneurial endeavors, but I always seem to come back to the beauty of blogging.
There is a richness in the ability to craft stories, a fulfillment in translating and conveying information to your reader, and an indulgence in letting your creativity spill onto your computer screen through the use of not only text but stunning visual content.
I try to share my love for technology, entrepreneurship, and passion for learning so you gain information to help make your journey just a little bit easier.
I don’t know everything and I’m not here to dictate what you have to do. I’m here simply to share my journey with you, assist however I can, and hopefully help you take one more step toward realizing your dreams.
I look forward to working together as we explore our passions, expand our horizons, and take our blogs to new heights.
