All in Business & Blogging
Tailwind syncs up with Pinterest and allows you to share your pins and schedule them out for as far out as you want. That way, you can schedule it and forget about it for the next month or two. Seriously. Can you imagine taking a vacation and knowing that everything on your Pinterest business side is handled because Tailwind has your back? Guess what...you can!
So many people tend to think of Pinterest as a "recipe or craft site", but they couldn't be more wrong. Pinterest is a search engine, just like Google or Yahoo, except it's more visual and relies on pretty pins and pictures to drive traffic. Words are still important, but not the focal point for people scrolling through their feeds.
Running a blog takes a ton of work. Despite what others think and express, it's not a job that has you just sitting in front of your computer all day long just "playing" around on the internet. Sure, that's PART of it, but there are a ton more detail and business-savvy that truly goes into running a blog.
The Believe & Balance Lifestyle Blog is officially 1 year old today! And, I couldn't be more excited. I wanted to take a moment to share the top 10 things that I've learned in my first year of blogging to help you understand that everyone has a different blogging journey!
Have you always dreamed of owning your own business, or growing your business to a full-time income? You may have the right mindset, but lacking the resources! I’ve put together a list of the best books for all girl bosses looking to start their own business, motivate and empower themselves, or find the passion for your career.
Bloggers are both business savvy, and creative beings. We are all things rolled into one - writers, photographers, business owners, salespeople, marketing gurus – you name it, we do it. So it stands to reason that a Blogger’s Home Office needs to encompass all these things, and more!
Blogging isn't easy. It's not for the faint of heart either. It's one of those things that if you don't try it yourself, I mean really try it, you won't truly understand the toll it may take on your mind, body, and soul. For example, it takes more than a little copy and pasting to create a blog post like this. There are SO many other tasks that need to be completed before you click schedule or post.
When we were young, we had to find the balance between school, extracurricular activities, and friends. As we entered into adulthood, a whole new set of balances emerged. For more, our days currently are filled with going to and from work, with the remainder of our time outside of work leaving us to fill it with aspects of our lives that we love and want to do.
So you've started a business online. Congratulations! You've stepped into the unknown, you've taken the leap, you've put yourself and your passion down in type and you want to show the world what you're made of. Unfortunately, the world isn't what you thought it would be.
When I first started working from home I basically threw my hands in the air when it came to keeping a routine. I slept in as late as my body wanted, I took breaks whenever I wanted, I stayed in my PJ’s all day… it was pretty fabulous. I was so tired of the corporate world dictating how I should live my day, how long I should spend working, and when I could eat. I was ready for total control of my life; to live it exactly the way I wanted.
Oh yes, the holidays are here. Are you ready? Are you feeling excited? Stressed? Tired already with oh-so-much to do? How would you like to learn about some easy ways you can use Evernote to not only survive the holidays but THRIVE this holiday season?
How many times have you tried to sit down and create content, yet nothing feels right? It happens to me daily. It still stresses me out sometimes. But, I think I figured out why... I put too much damn pressure on myself to create content that I think you all want to see instead of focusing on exactly whatever it is I feel called to share with my readers.
