Using Tailwind to Drive Traffic to your Blog

17th May 2019

Hello, hello! Let’s talk about Tailwind App, an app specifically made to increase your activity on Pinterest and help you grow. Pinterest is SUCH a great tool for bloggers! Nearly every single Pinterest pin is connected to a blog post, meaning that when people share the image, they’re also simultaneously sharing your content. Make sure you’ve got beautiful imagery or a compelling graphic, sprinkle in a caption with keywords and voila! We’re good to go with a rich pin for the platform.

I’ve met so many people that use Pinterest but don’t use it as a social platform, which is totally cool! But if you’re trying to drive traffic to your blog, Pinterest is a GREAT way to be able to do that. Especially if you’re already using it! Win, win, win, right?

Tailwind makes it so easy to organize your pins, create pins, add links to your pins, create captions and share it into relevant groups within the platform. Tailwind also strategically posts your pins in what’s called a “SmartLoop,” which I’ll get into a bit later. You can join “tribes” with relevant niches and connect to other creators who are trying to grow just the same. Annnd, I’m gonna make the case on why you should join Tailwind App today. I mean, I went from 1,000 to 70,000 monthly viewers in just 1 month. If that doesn’t make the case for me, I don’t know what does.

The Fashion Revolution

16th May 2019

The time has come for the long-awaited Fashion Revolution! Not only does this revolution ensure a more ethically-sourced, kinder world, but it also encourages the slow fashion movement to abolish wasteful mass production. It is a movement rooted in love for the environment and (most importantly to me), love for other people.

The Fashion Revolution is comprised of people around the globe who are committed to changing the fashion industry’s values and the environment. They’re the designers, academics, writers, business leaders, policymakers, brands, retailers, marketers, producers, makers, workers and fashion lovers. They’re the industry and the public. The world’s citizens. Me and you.

How to Build an Engaged Instagram Following

14th May 2019

Hello, friends! Let’s talk about building an Instagram following in 2019! I started blogging in February and had around 1200 followers, but didn’t really start seeing growth until April. It is now May and I’m right at 3000 as of right this minute! So that’s about 1700 followers within the last month. Crazy! I more than doubled my following and it was all done naturally, organically and without buying followers.

Before we start, I just wanted to talk about why you should want to build an Instagram following for your business. Aside from the numbers and the likes, think about it! These are people who are engaging with your posts, who are able to see your advertising on a daily basis. They can consume posts, stories, comments and likes from you, building brand familiarity. This is a great way to drive potential customers to your brand, whether it’s a product or service or a blog, like mine. Most of my readers come from my Instagram, according to my WordPress analytics. Many followers also come from Pinterest, but that’s a different post (coming soon).

Som Sleep Supplement Review

10th May 2019

Alright, I’m especially excited for today’s product review. If any of y’all know me, you know I have such trouble sleeping. Although I’m not sure of the exact cause, I’d attribute my lack of slumber to extreme and constant anxiety/stress, with just a dash of medication side effects. I’m not joking when I say I hadn’t had a full night’s sleep since last year – until I started using this product.

Golden Star Beauty Sunless Self Tanning Review

9th May 2019

I was so excited when Golden Star Beauty reached out to me to try their sunless tanning set! I’ve been using sunless tanners since I was in high school. I have a natural tan in my skin, but during the winter months I can often turn an olive-y green that looks a bit sickly. During the winter months and into the spring, I love to spruce up my skin and make it look a bit more radiant again by adding in a harmless tan through a bottle.
