Pinterest is one of those social media platforms that seems very mysterious but if you’re willing to put in the time, it can be a game changer. Today I am sharing three beginner-friendly Pinterest secrets that can help you get the most out of the platform. If you are curious about ways to boost your Pinterest game, this post helps you get started.
Whether you’re trying to launch your site going self-hosted or on a free platform (ummm, take a minute and consider if going self-hosted is right for you) you will ultimately consider the look and feel of your site. That means it’s time to buy a theme – but are you asking yourself the right questions before buying a WordPress theme?
Hello there blogger – chances are your branding sucks. Yep, I went straight for the kill didn’t I? While drafting this blog post I determined I could be sweet or I could be real. Ya girl went for real.

There’s a lot of things that you will have to deal with when becoming a blogger. Things like domain names, hosting and blogging platforms automatically spring to mind. But there are some other things that I believe future bloggers should consider before they start this journey.
Everyone makes mistakes in their blogging/online journey and when you’re a newbie you sorta, kinda get a pass cause…you’re a newbie. But even though you sorta, kinda get a pass you should also reach a level where you’re not making those mistakes (cause you’re learning from places like this).
Looking back over the years I’ve made my fair share of mistakes and some of them were done from an I don’t know what I’m doing standpoint. Others? Well, let’s just say I knew better.
