FAQs:

What do you use for hosting?

I run a WordPress blog through Bluehost and got my domain for FREE through them! Would highly recommend self-hosting as you have much more control over your site.

Who takes your pictures?

Great question! A lot of people haha. I have a mix of pictures paid & free photoshoots, my family & friends, and a lot by myself! I think it’s worth investing in 1-2 branded photoshoots and a good camera! I love my Canon 6D but I started out using a Canon Rebel camera which is much more affordable!

How often do you blog?

Consistency is key with blogging but you have to find what works for you! I aim for one post a week and if I can get more in then great! But remember, with running a blog 20% of the work is writing the content and 80% is marketing!

Do you make money from blogging?

Yes but in ways that you may not have considered before. I do a few sponsorship posts here and there but I also make money through affiliate marketing, freelance, and courses and coaching! I also think blogging in a great confidence boost that helps you pivot in your career and make money doing what you love to do. Because of blogging I’ve know been able to help other brands and business with their own content strategy.

What do you use to send emails?

ConvertKit! Switching over to ConvertKit from Mailchimp was seriously a game-changer for me. It showed me ways to utilize my email list in ways other than templated newsletters and I was able to grow my email list by 4X after making the switch. If you are a blogger looking to step-up your game, I highly recommend checking out ConvertKit.
