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.
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!
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!)
Happy Monday, friends! If you’ve been following along for a while you know I have recently started writing blog posts about blogging tips and tricks and things that I am continually learning along the way. Blogging is such a new and different industry that I feel like no one ever really knows if they’re doing it right, rather something you continually learn along the way. And this can be so hard at first when you feel like there is no right answer!
So today I will be sharing 3 of the go-to resources that I use as a fashion and lifestyle blogger to help grow my brand that are all resources I highly recommend you use if you’re serious about your blog and view it as a business. These exact resources apply primarily to fashion and lifestyle blogs, however, could be useful tips or ideas of resources to use for other blog topics as well such as health & wellness, food blogs, etc. in order to make the most out of your blogging business and your brand.
