Happy Friday! I can’t believe we’re in October already, the year is flying by so quickly… however, I am super excited because it’s without a doubt my favorite time of year.
Who else adores fall? There’s so much to love, what is one thing you always look forward to? I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season this week, which I must admit was quite thrilling (hopefully some of you will relate to my excitement about this, or perhaps I’m just crazy!).
I’m also excited about October because after many emails and questions on when the next Blogging For A Living Course will be, I am delighted to advise the next one starts this coming Monday, October 5. Course material is delivered direct to you every Monday, so no matter where you are in the world or what your schedule is, you can complete the course whenever suits you best! Oh and of course, that means you’ll also always have the content to refer back to in the future.
My recent trip to another New York Fashion Week only helped to remind me what an incredible career blogging is – and all you need is a laptop to get started. But as many quickly find out, there is more to being a successful blogger than you ever imagined. Most bloggers don’t talk about it and there’s no step-by-step manual to walk you through the essentials, no guide to creating a community and growing your following from the ground-up, no check-list for must-have tools of the trade, no how-to for earning a living. That is, until now. From one blogger to another, it’s an honest, transparent and realistic how-to for strategically turning your passion into a successful business.
It’s everything I wish I knew in my early days of blogging. Ever wondered, how do I grow my community and following? What do I put in a media kit? How do I work with brands I love? How can I earn money? How do I create collages without Photoshop? What is SEO? How can I get more traffic to my site? How do I take better photos? Well, I’ve got the answers to all this and much more.
Now onto one of my other favorite things about fall – booties! I’ve been seeing so many cute pairs in store now and here are my top picks for fall’s best booties under $200… my advice is to grab them early (I hate when I have my eye on a pair and later can’t find my size). I hope you all have a beautiful weekend and as always, thank you for joining me here on Style Elixir!
