“Give yourself room to fail, experiment, and try something new. You don’t have to be perfect now Success is inevitable if you keep going.“
This past October Snippykit rebranded. You can read about how Snippykit came to be here.
As much as I loved the Boutique part of Snippykit, I felt like it was time to change gears. It’s time to inspire women and mothers through daily inspiration, laughs, printables, and tips on motherhood, adventure, being a momprenuer, and living in the moment. That is my goal. Here is a little update on what I’ve learned so far and are working on for blogging/influencing.
Starting a blog has been fun and a little intimidating. Just as starting a boutique there are so many places to find advice, ideas, etc for blogging. To be honest, I will always be learning, but I’ve learned the blogging/influencing world is ever changing. Anything involving the internet and technology will have changes involved and rolling with the punches is something you have to get used to.
Another thing I have learned about blogging is the importance of social media. Snippykit Boutique had an amazing group of women. I felt like I knew how to run the group and get engagement I needed. I didn’t feel the need to spend a huge amount of time on other platforms. Now that the group is under new management, I am starting from scratch. I’m not gonna lie, it is been a challenge to find my voice and place, but I have definitely learned so many things about Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. For instance, there are also important things called hashtags, engagement, an algorithm, following, etc. There also should be a cohesive look across your social media. This is something I still struggle with! The colors, fonts, filters, etc should all be consistent so people know what your “brand” looks like.
I’ve learned that getting paid sponsors and brands takes time. Blogging isn’t something that you will make a ton of money at first. Successful bloggers are consistent and have been around for years. They give 110% on everything they do. There is a timeline for blogging. You have to put in your time and effort. Eventually you will be rewarded for the hard work.
Lastly, I’ve learned that you have to be true to yourself. You can look to others for inspiration, but it is important to just be yourself. I have to give myself permission to fail, try new tactics, make new goals and grow. I thank YOU for following me as a boutique owner and sticking with me as a blogger. It means the world to me. If you just happened to stop by randomly and read this post, I thank YOU for taking the time to read and to get to know me a little bit. I hope you stick around for the long-haul!
