I’ve been getting a lot of questions over the past month or so from friends and followers on Instagram asking me: “How do you run a blog while working a full-time job?” And, “How do you make it look so easy?” This really inspired me to write today’s post for you all and hopefully inspire those of you who are on the same boat as me that work a full-time job during the week while also running a blog and want to successfully do both.
Happy Thursday! Today I wanted to share with you all the apps I use to edit my photos for my blog and Instagram since I’ve switched up my photo editing routine a couple different times. There are so many great apps out there available for editing photos that don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg like a lot of Lightroom presets do. For me personally, especially as a college student, I do not want to spend a large amount of money on a photo editing service and have come to love a variety of different free/low-cost photo editing apps.
Do you ever scroll through Instagram or Pinterest and see all of these super cute posed snow day photos and get inspired and in the mood for a winter wonderland? Because I know I do! Now that a lot of my blogging work requires time on Instagram, I wanted to take some cute snow day photos myself and go on little snow day adventures around my state for the perfect snowy photos! It made for super fun date days for my boyfriend and I as well which was a total bonus. Because snow day photos for the gram and Pinterest are so popular, I wanted to share some of my favorite locations to go to in Washington in the winter time to capture the perfect snow day photos!
Happy Monday! Today is my last first day of school as I begin my final semester, and, because of this, I felt so inspired to write this blog post today about how I manage being a college student, working a part-time job and internship, along with blogging. Because it is NOT easy!
For those that may not know or are new to following me, I have been blogging for about two and a half years now and as I continue to blog, I learn SO much along the way in this new and exciting industry. Specifically, within the last year as I have put a lot more focus and time into my blog, I feel a lot more confident in my professional skills that I take with me to school and even to internships/applying for jobs after college – all that have improved SO much during my time blogging. So today I wanted to share this post with you all how blogging really can your improve professional skills that you can take with you to the office or school. (Little heads up, this post is a bit lengthy!)
