Dec 4, 10:40AM EST0

What are the disadvantages of running a blog?

Dec 3, 6:02PM EST0

Time! There's never enough time in the day...it always feels like there's a million things I could be doing for my blog so I try to take time away from blogging/social media on the weekends.

Dec 4, 10:41AM EST0

What would you do differently if you were just starting out in this industry?

Dec 3, 2:01PM EST0

That's a great question....it took me awhile to find my "blog identity" and I'm still working on polishing this today. You can't be a pro at everything so I'm still working on getting more specific on my posts and learning to say no to people. If I post about eveyrthing under the sun people will start to get uninterested so it's always about staying true and authentic to who you are.

Dec 4, 10:44AM EST0

How did you learn about maximizing social media for exposure and connection?

Dec 4, 10:42AM EST0

Talk about the biggest failure you've had. What did you learn from it?

Dec 3, 12:31PM EST0

My biggest failure was taking on a job that I wasn't prepared for. I didn't research the company thoroughly and it's still my biggest regret today. I was miserable every day and told myself I had to make a change. I had to walk away from this job and it was SO hard to do. In leaving, I learned so much about myself and what I wanted in life. I took these mistakes and learned from them. You only live once!

Dec 3, 12:47PM EST0

Where do you get your influence on elegance and beauty?

Dec 3, 12:22PM EST0

My Mom! I've always looked up to her as my role model and she's an amazing woman. 

Dec 3, 12:43PM EST0

How does social media help your blog site gain business?

Dec 3, 11:42AM EST0

Instagram is the main social media platform that's helped me gain business because it's a hugely popular platform for people to see a picture portfolio of your work. It easily leads companies and brands straight to your blog. 

Dec 3, 12:42PM EST0

It ranges from writing about a hotel stay to sharing my opinion on various beauty products. I'm usually compensated through instagram posts and my reviews on my blog. They'll reach out to me and see if I'm interested and if it fits my audience and I like the product I'll share it on my blog in return for payment.
