I learned a variety of things in August and today I’m going to share with you guys what I learned.
Let’s jump into it!
Blogging and Influencing
So many brands are trying to buy dofollow links and I feel like I’m missing out on a lot of money.
When I tell you guys, I’ve had probably 30 brands reach out to me over the past couple of months wanting me to write a sponsorship post, but they wanted the links to be dofollow. The moment I tell them how Google frowns upon dofollow links for sponsorships and paid posts, they either disappear without a response or they tell me they only want to work with me if the links are dofollow.
It’s just so disappointing because I know that it’s their job, but they don’t even consider how me going through with it could mess up the entire foundation of my site where I get pinged for doing something against Google’s rules.
Talking about different topics puts me on the radar for potential brand collaborations.
I’ve noticed that when I talk about fashion or home decor, maybe a month or two later I’ll have a couple of brands reach out to me about a collaboration. I still feel like brands are finding me via Twitter & hashtags. It makes the most sense.
I definitely want to start creating more fashion and DIY content.
For years, I’ve wanted to get into fashion blogging. I keep saying I’m going to do it, but then I never do. So now I’m going to push myself to posting at least 3 fashion posts every month.
I also want to try my hand at DIY content as well. I’m super excited about it.
I switched my Instagram’s Business account to a Creator account.
I watched a video recently about how only Creator accounts could find trending music. I haven’t started making videos on my account just yet, but when I do I want to be able to add trending music to my videos.
Health, Food, & Drink
I can’t drink juice like that.
I ended up getting a bladder infection all because I binge drank juice for a week since I had been doing so well with not drinking anything other than water at all. It was absolutely trash.
I am in love with Savvy Sliders.
On the day I went to Urgent Care, my boyfriend suggested we tried Savvy Sliders since it was right next to the Urgent Care we went to. I absolutely loved the burgers there! They were so freaking good.
I’ve been losing weight and I’m going to assume it’s water weight.
So my weight has been going down consistently for the past couple of months. It’s not a giant change, but I haven’t been this size in like 2 years. Drinking more water and cutting out sweets has been weight changing I suppose.
My Personal Life
I care about what people think, but not enough to put in the effort a lot of times.
It’s interesting how my relationships are with people. I’m a very distant person for the most part which is unfortunate, but the important people in my life understand.
A lot of times I feel like I’m left out of stuff or I feel like people think I don’t care. Or sometimes I’ll hear someone say something and my feelings slightly may get hurt because I’m not as involved and to be honest, it’s on me.
Then I realize that my relationships are the way that they are because of the way things happened in the past and how I haven’t really tried to change anything.
So I’m slowly trying to put more effort into changing myself where I’m more present for people and where I check in on them versus when I think about them.. I say a prayer and don’t physically contact them at all.
Can you guys relate to any of these topics?
