The Business of Blogging

home-office_2.jpg

Generally, there is a stigma attached to being a blogger - as we are thought of as individuals who are online famous for the hobby of posting about our latest wear and beauty finds.  But bloggers are more than that!  We work hard to attract readers and brands, to keep them engaged, and keep them coming back for more.

As Independent bloggers we are beauty and fashion editors - sometimes journalists - only without the support staff.  Infact, we are our own support staff, editor-in-chief, writer, photographer, graphic designer, social media manager, and more.  We are entrepreneurs who work hard to create content; and like any business owner we attend meetings, meet deadlines, manage finances, network with other professionals, keep up with the trends, and of course educate ourselves. As a blogger who works hard to create content, I was inspired by the "IFB Project: Where do you blog?" to share where the magic happens.

This is where my creativity brews and the hard work happens!
