It's been two months since I started blogging. I have learned so much in that time. I taught myself how to create a website! Wow I never thought I would have done that, I am somewhat computer literate. It all started about a year ago when I was following a blogger for her fashion style. I thought hey, I can do this! It does look like a lot of fun. Then I started thinking about names for my site. I even created a site on Blogger. That was a lot harder for me to create a page on than WordPress. I just felt lost, time got in the way so I put it aside and didn't give it another thought till this year.
I really wanted to do something for myself. I am a Wife, Mom and I work full-time. Where is me time? I feel fulfilled in these aspects but I wanted to make a difference and do something else that I can feel proud of. This is the main reason I started this journey. It does take a lot of hard work and effort to get this going. I'm not going to lie some days I'm just dead tired but I want to make this work. I give it my all to take pictures, post them and blog. I started just on Pinterest and Instagram until I figure out how all this blogging works. I am eventually going to make a Facebook page but one day at a time. My goal is to blog at least once a week. I do post at once a day on Instagram and I'm starting to use Tailwind for Pinterest posting.
I have joined some great groups on Facebook and I have learned quite a bit from them. One of my lessons learned though is the follow for follow. I have been burned quite a few times. I would follow someone only to find they unfollowed me. I think I'm going to stop doing them. I would like it if people enjoyed my content rather than just doing it to get more followers. I'm also learning about affiliate marketing and collaborations. I was approached by a jewelry company to collaborate but it seemed like it was only a one way street for them. These ladies in the group helped teach me how to collaborate and what to look out for. I really appreciate all the great tips!
I hope you as my reader enjoy my content and stick around to see what happens in the future!
