In This Week in Blogging's newsletter, we write about all sorts of things that we feel might help the blogging community. That's ultimately why we run in the first place.
But, when we're not talking about blogging habits to prioritize, or blogging activities to get the year kicked off right, we love to have a little fun and post articles like this, which cover the best blogging quotes around.
Below, we review the best quotes around starting a blog, our favourite blogging quotes around running a site/brand, some motivational quotes that can apply to bloggers, and a few humorous quotes as well.

Whenever a new year begins, we take the first month or so to take stock of the state of our blogs.
Part of this is because ad rates are so low at the start of Q1 that we're not driven to create content like mad. But the other part is that the new year is simply a good excuse to start new blogging habits to get the year off on the right foot.
But some activities that can be done in Q1 are not necessarily habits that need to be adopted throughout the coming year but are rather one-off tasks that could be accomplished during the downtime as well. So in this one, we thought it'd be fun to share a few back-end blogging tasks you may want to consider doing at the start of the year that you may have slacked on in the past!

Oh, blogging habits. Everyone has a few, we all want more, and getting into the practice for many is a chore that takes months of work.
For me, when it comes to embracing new habits for my blog, I always set goals for myself at the beginning of a new year. The arbitrary reference point of January 1st is a great way to hit the reset button in many ways both personally and for our sites.
So in this one, I wanted to share five blogging habits I am looking to prioritize in 2022 and beyond. Yes, you're about to learn the skills I'm terrible at and my plans to fix them in the new year in this one!
The name of the game? Efficiency and money, of course.

The weekend of Black Friday through Cyber Monday is one of our favorite times of the year to be a blogger.
First, many bloggers (especially those with US-based audiences) are expected to see a surge in digital advertising spending over the course of the weekend (Jeremy's record was just over $60 in 2019 which he is already beating in 2021). Second, and more importantly for this article, there are a ton of deals available for bloggers who wish to upgrade their sites!
We've scoured the internet to find some of the best deals bloggers may be interested in and have put together this great guide to Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for bloggers in 2021.
Please note: We will be frequently updating this guide over the course of the holiday weekend to capture new deals as they go live. As such, check back regularly as new deals may be added. We did our best to find all applicable terms and conditions when finding these deals, but note that a few were lacking in definitive end dates and all discount terms should be reviewed prior to purchase. Likewise, keep in mind that in many cases Black Friday deals are often for new subscribers in the first sale only. Those that require annual renewals may revert back to the original rate and that is worth confirming prior to your subscription end date.

“Your advertising account has been disabled for suspicious activity.”
These are dreaded words no one wants to see when logging into an advertising account on any network, and as I have had relative success advertising on Facebook, this was especially gutting for me to see in my account after waking up one morning.
While this could be yet another sign that playing in someone else's sandbox is a bad idea, I was determined to get my account reinstated because, well, advertising on Facebook simply works for my blogs.
So in this one, I wanted to share what happened and the surprisingly simple steps I used to get my Facebook advertising account reinstated.
Note: For full clarity, I should say that my pages worked fine for conventional posts and organic traffic, but rather only my ability to pay for advertising was disabled.
