A question that I get ALL the time is this: So what is it that you do? This my friends, is a complicated question. All my blogging pals out there, how do you answer this question? …you’re an internet influencer, social media marketer, brand ambassador, writer, creator… or ALL of the above?!
There’s a lot more to blogging than what people may think. It’s much more than taking selfies, scrolling through social media and playing with free products. 😉
Here’s just a quick overview of what blogging entails: planning and scheduling out posts; shooting (lots of) photos including outfit and product shots; editing photos (a very time-consuming task!); writing the actual posts and integrating brand links & SEO; emailing and corresponding back and forth with brands; applying to post opportunities through networks; learning about, testing out, and writing reviews on new products; regularly creating new content and replying to comments on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc; being active on blogger groups; growing a genuine following across all platforms; and more. 🙂
I’m coming up on two years of blogging and I can definitely say I’m still learning and growing every day. Before I even launched my blog I did SO much research (for 7 months to be exact) before officially launching my site. Although I still feel “new” at this, I have learned so much and have met some amazing people along the way! I feel so blessed to be able to work from home and also have the ability to pick up and take my work with me. It’s been such a blast getting to put my heart and energy into this site. It’s competitive. It’s hard. It takes a lot of effort. But it has definitely been worth it!
Putting yourself out there can be scary. But I found that after months and months of preparing to launch my site, I just had to bite the bullet and do it. There is no way you can be 100% prepared for everything – but you learn and grow along the way! So today I just wanted to give you a little insight into how I spend my days, and also thank you all for being on this journey with me! Your love and support means so much! So here’s to the exciting future of C.B. and my little corner of the internet. xo.
