Your (Blogging) Stats Matter, But YOU Matter More

Your (Blogging) Stats Matter, But YOU Matter More

Dear Teen Me, Get off Google Analytics. Close that tab with your page views. Stop checking your Twitter notifications every 5 minutes to see if someone new followed you (or worse, unfollowed you). You’re hitting a blogging slump, I can feel it. Time to step back and re-evaluate what’s important to you. This blog series is not intended to be what […]

Multiple Social Media Pages is a Struggle

Using Social Media in a “Smart” Way

Using Social Media in a “Smart” Way

Do you currently have a job, or plan on having a job in the future? Chances are you answered “yes” to that. Now my next question: do you have any social media accounts? I bet most of you said “yes” to that too. We live in a technological world and while our social media may be used more for our […]

Hello friends. It’s September! I can’t believe the summer is already over but it’s that time of year where many of you are headed back to school and I bet your schedules just got a whole lot busier. I know mine did. In the spirit of the start of the new school year, I wanted to do a blog mini […]
