Quizzes are hot topic these days….wait, who I am kidding. Quizzes have always been a hot topic. I mean, if your teenage years weren’t spent taking “who is your ultimate celebrity crush?” you probably are younger than me.
Online quizzes are becoming increasingly popular thanks to places like Buzzfeed, who pop out approximately a million quizzes per day, like “Which Disney Prince Should You Marry?”*
Beauty Meets Girl is a brand new lifestyle for the working badass mom ready to build her own biz or side hustle. Not only does Ashley from Beauty Meet Girl write an awesome blog about health and beauty tips and taking care of yourself, she also runs a team of Color Street Stylists.
My first official designer job was at small town newspaper creating ads. I learned a lot from that job, but more importantly, I learned a lot of what not to do. At the paper we would create ads for companies with zero consistency. We had realtors that would change the style of their ads every single week. This is a really bad practice.
As a small business owner and working mom, I’m always curious to see how other people manage their day to get everything done and juggle mom life with working. I know from experience is a constant struggle.
In my life, things are NEVER consistent. Which is one of my major problems areas, I just want to be able to count on my schedule but as it turns out, the only thing I can count on is inconsistency.
It really takes a lot of skills and work to be a successful blogger. For every blog you put out you are not only writing the post, but also taking photographs and creating graphics.
People are often surprised at the number of they have to create to put out and share a blog post. The more you share your posts the more graphics you actually need. The bigger your blog gets the more graphics you need.
One of my favorite parts of my design process is the inspiration board or mood board. (These two are the same thing, you'll notice, I use the two terms interchangeably.)
The inspiration board is a visual representation to set the tone and style of the branding for your blog. As someone who spent their teen years with walls covered with collages from Seventeen and Cosmo Girl magazines, mood boards are totally my thing. Like, totally.
