What Merissa Offers 

I have almost 14 years of experience within the blogging sphere, working on Little House Living, several other blogs I’ve owned, and working with other bloggers to build and grow their websites. I’ve also traditionally published 2 print books (Little House Living, 2015, Gallery Books and Living Slower, 2022, Baker Publishing) as well as numerous ebooks.

I’ve successfully grown my own business from the point where both my husband and I now work from home, and we’ve been able to use that position to launch other businesses.

I’m constantly seeking new education in all areas to provide the best service possible to all our clients. I’m not someone who wants to do the work for you; I have an honest drive to help you organically build your business/blog and make it the best it possibly can be. I only use strategies I’ve tested on my blog and have been successful with.

The biggest difference between me and other “expert bloggers” is that I don’t make money off others looking to make money; I’m not blogging about blogging. Consulting is my side job, and blogging on my lifestyle website is my full-time job. I’m not here to sell you my courses or any specialized products to tell you how to make money. I’m here to encourage you on your journey and provide practical advice from someone who actually makes a living from blogging.


Merissa took over my Facebook and Instagram a while ago. Those social platforms are something I don’t enjoy doing, and I didn’t realize how it was getting in my way of creating blog content. My “real world” friends reached out to tell me they are so happy I’m regularly scheduling again, and they love what I’ve been writing on my FB/Insta posts. I say, “Thank you!” and take all the credit – lol! Merissa does a much better job than I did. She is so consistent and does a beautiful job with the tone/voice. I’m very thankful to have her helping me! – Susan Momcrieff

Merissa and her husband at Little House Living have been total rock stars! I’ve hired Consultants who have claimed to be experts in the past, only to be disappointed. Merissa is self-driven, reliant, and extremely knowledgeable about social media, blogging, and creative writing. I am not sure what I would do without her! – Ashley Sears Quirky Inspired

I just want to say thanks to Merissa for the great articles I have purchased from her. She really does a phenomenal job! If you are thinking about purchasing any of her work, don’t hesitate! You will love it! – Amanda, A Few Short Cuts 

I have to brag a little bit about Merissa. Since I’ve had her help with SEO, my search engine traffic has quadrupled. I hired her to do some keyword research, and she gave me a bunch of ideas for new articles that will boost my SEO on other posts. If you girls want to increase your views and learn more about SEO, I really recommend messaging her. She is a wealth of knowledge! She also does initial consultations and has some great tips on advertising, layout, schematics, etc. I am excited to see my page continue to grow, thanks to her tips! – Andrea, Homemade for Elle
