Digital Photo Storage for Bloggers + Creative Entrepreneurs

Digital Photo Storage 3

I started blogging in 2007. Over the last eight years, I've amassed a ridiculous number of photos. I am constantly snapping quick pics on my iPhone, shooting images for a blog post and, more recently, I've added a pretty hefty catalog of videos saved from my daily chats on Periscope. The problem? Photos everywhere - they were saved on my computer, a stand alone hard drive, various mobile devices and even a few web based apps and cloud storage accounts. Over the last year I've developed something of a system that seems to be working and (even better) is saving me a decent amount of … [Read more...]

8 Reasons Why You Should Attend a Conference

Why Attend a Bog Conference Feature

Oh man. Before I dive into why you should attend a conference, let's address the elephant in the room here...I own Snap - a conference for craft and DIY bloggers and creative entrepreneurs. In fact tickets for our 2016 event go on sale in two and a half weeks! Wowzers. You might wonder how I can reasonably address this topic with such a bias. Here's why. BEFORE starting Snap, I attended many other business conferences and still do to this day. Next week I will be speaking at Type A, followed by a quick trip in November to Chicago to BlogHer Food. I anticipate attending at least one more … [Read more...]

How to Schedule Instagram Posts


While I believe real-time posting on Instagram is best, I couldn't make it through the week without the help of a scheduling tool. Scheduling posts ensures that I never "miss" an important deadline or post due to internet access and activity. It keeps me active and it forces me to be more deliberate about what I post. I currently schedule about 40% of my Instagram posts. I get a lot of questions about how to schedule Instagram posts and I thought I would share my experience with scheduling over the past year. Scheduling Instagram Posts with Posts The primary tool I use for scheduling … [Read more...]

Hello everyone! My name's Rebecca and I blog over at Simple as That. I'm super excited to be a part of this #onewordchallenge that Tauni has put together and to pop in and share my 2015 word with you all!

One Word Goal: Paisley Petal Events

One Word Goal Paisley Petal Events

Hi! I'm Holly from Paisley Petal Events and I'm excited to share my one little word for 2015. I'll be honest and let you know that I've never had a word for the year like many others have, mostly because I'm not very good at making resolutions and actually sticking with them and I wasn't sure choosing a word would do me much good. BUT, this year is different. This year I think my word will really help me achieve some goals and dreams and HAS helped me already. I actually came up with my word at the end of last year when I got really excited about pursuing a dream that I've had for a while … [Read more...]
