    Thank you for this Blog! I started out about a year ago with mine and I am getting to the point of frustration. (So Step 2 talking about getting discouraged REALLY hit home! I always love what you post, very inspiring! And the ‘Shop the Post” at the bottom is wonderfully dangerous for someone like me who loves to shop and even more-so when it is easy to click and purchase lol. Again, thanks for all your hard work and keep it up! Even if people aren’t responding out loud, they are appreciative. Happy Friday-Eve! (and now I am must purchase that Chanel C’s Coffee Mug lol)

    These are all such great tips! I have been trying really hard to expand my following on my blog and more so instagram. I can relate to you very much when you said in the post that you used to not go to different locations when shooting. I often times fall in the habit of posting in the same 5 places lol. It is just so convenient! Thanks for sharing, hope you are having a great day.

  26. Antonina says:

    LOVE THIS POST. I just started a blog a couple of months ago (out of pure passion) and I am having such a good time! I love everything about it, taking photos, writing, sharing myself. It’s amazing. I never even considered the money, but if I do start making money eventually, that would be like icing on a cake. But I agree, you should start blogging out of love for it! Not for the money.

    I bought the Isabella theme from Gina and I love it too! But yours looks a lot better :) I think in a year or so I will also invest in someone designing my blog, but right now I am very happy with just the theme. You inspire me! Keep up the great content.

    P.S. Also what do you think of my blog name? I’d like an honest opinion, it’s so hard choosing one!
