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)_/¯

But, more often than not, all I need is a little motivation. Which is where The Blogger Box comes in.

A few weeks ago, The Blogger Box sent me one of their amazing blogging subscription boxes to review and BOY DID I FLIP OUT. It’s full of fun blogging goodies that made me want to write a bazillion blog posts on the spot.  I have the honor of showing you what my box included plus a review on the box itself. Let’s get started!
