Have you ever read the first few pages of a magazine? No, I'm not talking about the Gucci and Guess ads or even the table of contents (which I can never find). I'm talking about the page where it list everyone who had a hand in making the magazine come together. It's a long list and there's an 'assistant' to everything. The assistants even have assistants.
Think about this: your blog is kind of like a magazine. It's entertaining, has lovey photos and creative writing. People look forward to receiving it.
More than likely it's a one woman show. That means you're the editor-in-chief, the copy editor, creative director, photographer (usually), social media director, in charge of make-up, wardrobe and public relations. If you've decided monetized your blog, well, that also makes you marketing director too. Oh! Did I mention you also have a full time job, children, significant other and/or pets to care for as well has run a household? Minor details. Do I even need to tell you how incredible you are? Of course not. You already know it, so give yourself a pat on the back, take a bow in front of the mirror (or if you're like me) buy yourself a new pair of shoes!
This editor-in-chief, photographer, director of wardrobe has been super busy with her J.O.B. and hasn't had a lot of time for public relations, i.e, visiting other blogs and the position of creative director is seemingly vacant. None the less, expect publication to resume after the Thanksgiving holiday. I'm curious to experiment and get your opinions on winter pastels, winter brights and winter whites. Has anybody played around with those yet?
In the meantime, just recall my opening words: You're incredible!
