Rhoda Vickers is knocking it out of the park! Her blog southerhospitalityblog.com has over 400,000 page views per month and 190,000 unique views / month.
But like most success stories, it was not easy getting there.
Rhoda Vickers grew up in Marietta. As she says, it was “the sticks.” Her Dad was a preacher and her Mom stayed at home and took care of things.
She ended up working in Marietta as a secretary. When they introduced the word processor to her, she hated it. But after a while, she fell in love with it and became an expert.
When the internet came along, Rhoda realized that she loved that too. Gone was the control the magazines had over content. She could share er decorating ideas and pictures with other people that loved the same thing.
So about 10 years ago, she started the Southern Hospitality Bog, when living in Birmingham — and it took off.
Then in 2011 everything changed. Her husband got into legal trouble and they divorced. Rhoda moved back in with her parents in the same house they lived in when she was a kid.
But, she kept on blogging and told her readers about her life issues. They 100% supported her and her blog continued to grow.
