Starting a blog brings up a string of questions. What’s the best site to host your blog? How do you make it look nice? Where do you even begin??

I’ve had my fair share of rifling through Google pages, looking for articles that’ll answer all those questions and more. It’s time-consuming, it’s exhausting, and more often than not, you magically end up scrolling through Pinterest* instead of doing research. Oops. Wonder how that happened?? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

what on earth is a BLOGGING VOICE?! // how to make your posts uniquely YOU!

Novice bloggers often worry about this little mystery called a writing voice. What is it, and, most importantly, how do you find it?

As bloggers, we want to provide our audience with the best stuff they can get their hands on. We strive to make our content the absolute best that it can be with the most efficiency possible.

I try my hardest to give my readers content that they’ll love every week… and I’m going to spill the tea on how I do that! From beginning to end, my process takes a total of three hours throughout the week to end up with a fun, organized post. My process isn’t perfect for everyone, but, for me, it works!

That being said, let’s get started on a new post!
